I’m super happy to be returning to play at Motion Notion Festival at the awesomely named Beaverfoot Lodge in Canada in August 2017!
It’s an amazing line up of talented artists including fellow Danio family Fort Knox Five, Slynk, Stickybuds & K+Lab. Also on the bill are fellow Aussies Shockone & Doctor Werewolf! \

It’s been a little while since I dropped a free track & thought it was hight time I did. This one has been in my bag for a while. I’ve dropped it all over the world & it’s always gone down a storm. I also decided to do this as an exclusive on Fresh Rotation (http://www.freshrotation.com) which is a cool alternative to Soundcloud. Go give their site a look!
Here’s my break beat version on the classic house jam ‘Finder’ from Ninetoes that was a huge tune a few years back…
It’s Free Download time again!
I knocked up this little gem for my recent Europe tour & played it all over the place. It worked a treat & I’ve had a few people asking me for it so I thought I’d let it out for everyone!
New HOUSE track! This my second release as Doug Masters, the name I’ll be using to release more housey stuff…
I teamed up with Cakes at The World Bar, where I’ve been resident for a number of years as D-Funk. They pitched me the idea of their first ever compilation & I was keen to have a track included on it, along side some other great Sydney based producers.
Check out the full compilation here:
It’s free track download time again!
Recently I was asked by the lovely fellas from Perth, The Beatslappaz to do a remix of their mighty fine track ‘Bottles’ which was released on their label Rump Shaker Records. It was to be part of a Rump Shaker Remixed Ep where a load of artists remixed tunes from the Rump Shaker back catalogue. It turned out this Ep never saw the light of day but we were all super happy with the remix I’d put together so we’ve decided to give it away for free! ENJOY!
Over the past few months I’ve been really feeling some bass heavy, 4/4 type tunes that have been released so I’ve put together a mix of some that are wetting my whistle! It’s not all bassline bangers, some are a little deeper but all (in my opinion) have great basslines. I also included a couple of cheeky little classics from the vault towards the end of the mix. Watch ya bass bins I’m telling’ ya!

I’ve been back in the studio cooking up some fine funk & soul with the man they call the Sugar Ray! 2 sublime low slung tracks that carry on from our last Ep, pushing classic sounds into the nu disco territory. This Ep is out now on Grits N Gravy…

The guys over at After Dark Ibiza asked me to put together an exclusive Dj mix for them ahead of playing for them on the Space, Ibiza on Tues 13th Sept. So here’s 80 minutes of hip hop, funk, disco, soul, breaks & drum & bass!
