Who: Fatt Dex
Where: Northern Star Hotel

WITH a honking 1960s-style organ riff, clattering drums and a few judicious vocal grabs, Sydney DJ-mixer FATT DEX has created a song JUS' FUNKIN which is guaranteed to induce serious dancefloor mayhem.

Appearing this Friday night at the Northern Star Hotel Dex cites FATBOY SLIM and THE PROPELLERHEADS, as his 'most obvious touchstones'.

Dex cuts, loops and samples 1960s and 1970s funk, soul and r&b into his act. JUS' FUNKIN is out in Australia through VIRGIN RECORDS. Joining Dex on stage will be Hunter acts, DJ QUADROPHONIC and DJ mama.
