For six years, Kano ran Str8up â€” Melbourne's future jazz, freestyle grooves and broken beat institution â€” on Fridays at Revolver, mixing the sounds of now with the sounds of old school hip hop, funk, boogie and disco alongside a host of local DJs and guest musicians. It was there that Kano also introduced to Melbourne's shores some of the finest international guests like Rainer Truby, Mad Mats and Mark De Clive-Lowe.
Kano's sets have been heard alongside Jazzanova, United Future Organisation, Gilles Peterson, Mark De Clive-Lowe, Nitin Sawhney, Recloose, Kruder and Dorfmeister, LTJ Bukem, Fat Freddys Drop, De La Soul, Young Disciples, Louie Vega, Kid Koala, LTJ Bukem, Kevin Saunderson, Black Eyed Peas, Minus 8, Runaways, Norman Jay, Russ Dewbury, Mark Rae, Rainer Truby, Gotan Project, Jose Padilla, Bugz in the Attic, Bebel Gilberto, Joe Bataan, Lonnie Liston Smith and Gil Scott-Heron to name just a few.
Fresh from the super hype Trus'me gig, we're proud to present a special one-off night at Khuja Lounge. DJ Kano, Recloose & Frank Booker throwing it down for a night of boogie, disco, soul, hip hop and anything else that takes their fancy!
