Our month of Vinyl Throwdown’s has proven a stylish way to start our Autumn program and this week we welcome a DJ with near two decades experience working the wheels of steel. Our guest, Jing Kohn returns to Sundae to show us what he’s about, but let’s take a minute to review his credentials.
Jing Kohn burst onto the Brisbane scene with an impressive double header, taking out both the ITF and DMC state championships over two consecutive years late in the last century. His ability on the turntables was duly noted, and his schedule quickly filled up with a string of high profile supports including Grandmaster Flash, Kool Keith, People Under the Stairs, Resin Dogs and Hilltop Hoods. His hip hop stylings blossomed into a more rounded sound, and saw Jing take on a variety of styles that endeared him to a growing fan base in Brisbane.
Over time, Jing developed a healthy roster of venues in the city, taking on Lychee Lounge, Cloudland, Laruche, Press Club, Rumpus Rooom and the like. Gritty hip hop sounds made way for the deeper funk, soul and disco styles that formed a large part of his significant record collection. Jing approaches the party with enthusiasm and a skill set that sees him well placed to guide our little gathering through the afternoon.
Floating through a funky selction that will soundtrack our end to the weekend, Jing will be joined by Haiku to get the afternoon moving with a smooth groove. Join us this week as we welcome back Jing Kohn for a Vinyl Throwdown. We’ll see you by the riverside.
