#THEHANGS </br>[TUESDAY – 01.12.2015]

[TUESDAY – 01.12.2015]

Soul Has No Tempo x Behind The Front x Playbar present “#THEHANGS” where musically we are free to experiment with sounds, artists and more importantly conversation.

“The Hangs..” is about getting together to head nod with strangers and finding that common love fpr a sound that rarely gets played in club nights. You’ll hear DJ’s playing music from Miles Bonny, Dilla, Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label, Electric Wire Hustle, Theo Parrish, Hiatus Kaiyote and more.

The Goods (LIVE)
Gavin Boyd (Soul Has No Tempo)
Mike Who (Astral People)
Krystel Diola (Behind The Front)
Benny Hinn (Play Bar Sydney).







Bringing a sound that bridges the gaps between spaced out funk, wonky rnb and low slung house, The Goods’ flavour is both wild and eclectic yet sharply focused.

The pair behind the music – Boris Bangaltar (Jarrol Renaud) and Rosario D’Awesome (Rosario Ferraro) are both well known players in their own right, having toured or recorded with artists like Omar, Touch Sensitive, Daniel Merriweather, Dereb the Ambassador, George Maple and Porsches.

Also known for their live show, they’ve performed at their own parties and supported acts like Onra and Oddissee as well as appearances across the 2015 Vivid Festival.

Their debut single “Strong Man” and it’s left of centre RnB is set for release this December with a full length LP to follow March 2016.


GAVIN BOYD (Soul Has No Tempo) //


Starting out on 4ZZZ Brisbane 102.1FM, hosting community radio show ‘Blackbeat’, he began his career at a time where vinyl was still the primary format for DJ’s and finding new music meant weekly, sometimes daily visits to the local record store.

While constantly digging in the crates, Gavin relentlessly developed his turntablist skills, becoming the 2003 Queensland ITF Champion.

Gavin is known for his smooth yet technical style and passion for shedding light on the many shades of soulful music. This is exemplified by his side project ‘Soul Has No Tempo’, which brings this passion to a wider community through parties, online broadcasts and its more recent evolution into a record label.

Over the years Gavin has been engaged for a multitude of support slots, opening shows for some of the most influential and respected names in the music industry (including DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Mos Def, Dwele, Jill Scott, Questlove, Dâm Funk, Busta Rhymes, Julio Bashmore) and had the opportunity to play at clubs and festivals in locales diverse as Amsterdam, Philippines, Maldives and Sri Lanka.

MIKE WHO (Astral People) //


Renowned as one of Sydney’s most diverse and respected selectors, Mike Who’s skills behind the turntables are in increasingly high demand. Known for consistently serving up forward thinking & eclectic sets, his widely-sourced taste and deep Hip-Hop roots lend themselves to an assorted dancefloor package spanning genres, generations and continents.

Regularly called upon to support the international heavyweights that come our way, chances are you have caught Mike warming the stage for everyone from J Rocc to Bonobo, Flako & Guilty Simpson to Oneman & Quantic, House Shoes to Peanut Butter Wolf through to Cut Chemist & DJ Shadow with tonnes more to heaving effect.

When not heating up our biggest stages, Who’s mixes (including the provocative Sucker for Love series) have been blogged by some of the largest publications around the world – racking up tens of thousands of plays and shedding another light on his diverse taste. On top of an increasingly-busy schedule that has seen him play regular shows around the country and overseas, Mike has also held down a four year residency on FBi’s award-winning weekly Stolen Records show, and a month long residency on Triple J Mix Up Exclusives, broadcasting his finds to a huge number of listeners both home and abroad.

Consistently outside the box and never afraid to take a risk, Mike Who’s sets will always move feet and educate heads. From high-pressure international support slots, peak time festival sets to closing full rooms, Who’s got you covered.

BENNY HINN (Play Bar Sydney) //


Benny Hinn (Daniel Robertson) began spinnin’ vinyl back in 01′ playing a range of phat funky house and some chunky big assed broken beats for the masses… Although now only 34, the Hinns has played at some of the finer establishments, parties and festivals around Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Spain, Wollongong and the South coast, gaining a rep az a bit of a party starter and one with some def skillz, finesse and sheer artistry on a pair of 1200s.

The Hinn has also toured with the MOS Label for an Annual release and has supported many artists such as, The Stanton Warriors, Freq Nasty, Krafty Kuts, A.Skillz, Jay Jay, Sneaky Sound System, The Resin Dogs, Katalyst, Sarah Love, Shortee Blitz, Frenzie, Total Eclipse, Mr. Doris, Cool Hand Luke, Normski, DJ Katch, DJ A.$.K, DJ KC, Edseven, Inkswel, Omegaman, Busta, Koolism, [love] Tattoo, Mark Dynamix, Ajax [RIP], Bang Gang, Goodwill, Alex Taylor, Funktrust, Purple Sneaker DJs + many many more…

Benny has also been dipping into a little production here and there with a few little mashes and beats all up on his soundcloud page.

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…
