DJ ADVERSE //
One can describe DJ Adverse as a ‘multifaceted creative engineer’ but will humbly refuse any such title. DJ Adverse’ expertise lends itself to video editing, music production, rapper, branding and marketing, in addition to his flawless in demand unique mixing style and charismatic showmanship. 

A favourite crowd party rocker and music trendsetter, DJ Adverse (co-founding member of The Groove Dealers) started out in the early 2000’s as one of the original radio hosts at community radio station Triple H 100.1FM. He was swiftly put on the mainstream circuit DJing throughout Sydney after being noticed by DJ Aladdin Royaal, playing at some of Sydney most popular night spots at the time including The Cave, Metropolis, MTV Lair, Shark Hotel, Star Bar and Mona Vale hotel to name a few. 

Adverse further expanded his talents and became a leading MC for Booty Bar Australia, which took him touring across the country with Booty Bar founder and Accredited ARIA award winner DJ Lenno. It was around this time that Adverse co-founded The Groove Dealers and helped form and write music for Australian Hip Hop Group Unison and LP and The Architects.

Over the last 5 years, under the banner The Groove Dealers, Adverse started running an annual snow tour at Falls Creek snowfields to capacity crowds with some of The Groove Dealers team and fellow party rockers, DJ CMAN, Juzzlikedat, Carratgold, VJ Spook, Makoto, Louie Headnod and MC Noodlez. Adverse has played live on Radio for 2RDJ 88.1fm with DJ D on mixbosses, Bondi Beach Radio on the Zulu Nation Radio show with DJ MK-1 and Mirrah and 2SER 107.3fm with Hardcore Classic Radio’s Randy Glazer and Tommy Rock. He played warm up set’s at the 2014 and 2015 DMC NSW championship and sets at festivals including Street Fest with Food Trucks United and at last years inaugural SoulFest as part of the 45’s sessions with Funkdafied Events. Most recently Adverse help organise and run the recent hugely successful Sydney event 'Soul Power' in collaboration with some of Sydney's most talented Djs artists and promoters.

BENNY HINN //

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.

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…
