Sydney Look Out! Coolhandluke’s Shakedown Steps Up With an Absolute Banga… Feat. Mark Walton + DJ Hudge + Coolhandluke + Shan Frenzie

Mark Walton
One of Australia’s most respected DJ’s, Mark Walton has been a DJ within the Australian Dance Music movement for many years. Having experienced musical trends first hand throughout the 80′s and 90′s, Mark’s DJ sets demonstrate a vast knowledge of Dance Music, whilst pushing the boundaries of Dance Music genres today.

DJ Hudge (NZ)
Born and bred in South London, Dave Hudge grew up with a loving family and a very tight group of good friends. Hudge started playing records with these friends aged 16 and quickly found he had a passion for Djing. Since then, Hudge has been DJing at clubs, festivals, concerts and bars from the heights of the Alps to the beaches of Thailand for over 23 years. The basis of his sound has always been Hip-Hop but his unswerving love and encyclopedic collection of music enables him to inject whatever it a takes to rock a party – something he never fails to do.

In the ’90′s Hudge honed his skills as a DJ for nearly 8 years with the Funkin Pussy Sound System at the legendary Hiphop night at the Africa Centre. He also played at the UK B-Boy Championships from 1998 to 2003 sharing the stage with with Kurtis Blow, Plus One, Dj Kool Herc, Africa Islam, Schoolly D, Rahzel, the Scratch Perverts, Crazy Legs (the Rock Steady Crew) and Mantronix. Hudge has toured with and supported the ‘JB’s Funky People’ (Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Bobby Bird and Vickie Anderson), the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, the MOBO award winner Corrine Bailey Rae, MTV’s Dirty Sanchez as well as DJing with DJ Ollie Teeba (The Herbaliser), Brad Balloo (The Nextmen), DJ Food, Shorty Blitz(KissFM), Tha Dump (Funkin Pussy), Mr Thing (Extended Players, BBE), Marc Seven, DJ Vadim, Dr Rubberfunk, Shredded Pete and Classic Material`s Chris Read, Big Ted, Canada’s world famous We Funk Radio, Parisian DJ Suspect (The Funk League), Blak Twang and the mixtape assassin J Period – to shamelessly name drop a few.

Shan Frenzie
Frenzie has been around the block more than a few times. He’s got well over twenty years of experience behind him, a record collection that will make any deejay envious, and a concrete rep as one of Australia’s most trusted party rockers. Taking inspiration from when DJ’s used to play for no less than 6 hours straight and transition between styles: Original Soul & Funk 45′s – check. Deep House, Disco & Boogie – check. Hip Hop, R&B, Breaks & Beats – check. Party anthems and forgotten classics – check. Frenzie has got you covered.
