A special night of music coming your way with a few dope selectors locked in for this jam… We’ll have a turntablist, a journeyman, a record label owner & bar owner spinning on the 1200s sharing some of their fav hip-hop, funk & soul collections with you…
FILTHY MITTS (UK) //
Filthy Mitts is one of the UK’s freshest and most original new party DJ’s, who’s next-level mixtapes have been kicking up a storm online.
Channeling all corners of his massively diverse taste in music, he harnesses ideas pioneered by Scratch Perverts and DJ Yoda (among others) to make one of the most entertaining party sets you’re every likely to hear, whipping out classics from across the board and cutting them up in an original way that gets people hyped.
2015′s all-out party mixtape ‘Cold Act ill’ is a wild journey through music, ticking off genres every few minutes and linking them up with slick cuts and orginal transitions. The mixtape has got a lot of people’s attention, including big-hitters Krafty Kuts, DJ Woody and JFB, as well as UK label Ghetto Funk:
“Man’s got serious cuts!”
- JFB (3x UK DMC Champion)
“Dope DJ. Crowd-rocking selections with skills to boot!”
- DJ Woody (Word ITF + Vestax Champion)
“Mixes that demand attention”
- Ghetto Funk (Label)
“Skills to pay the bills”
- DJ Moneyshot (Solid Steel)
“A hard act to follow”
- DJ Cheeba (Solid Steel)
With these guys behind him, he’s definitely doing something right. Go check him out!

His latest venture has been building and establishing PLAY BAR SYDNEY. After drawing inspiration from his last stint in Melbourne and meeting his partner & co-owner Sarah, the two worked hard to build what they hope to be for many years to come, an institution that brings decent music into Surry Hills Sydney. He has programmed every bit of music that has come through the venue and supported a huge range of hiphop, breakbeat DJs and just awesome beat-makers and producers both local and abroad…
