Sneaker Heads Unite for The Kickz Stand Swap Meet this June 29, 2014.

Posted by | Fashion | No Comments

Our sneaker head enthusiasts friends who have started up The Kickz Stand community are calling out to all likeminded sneaker enthusiasts this coming Sunday June 29.

With an ever growing passion for collecting kicks (not just any kicks, mind you) and an addictive love for urban street culture, one of my crew Dj Dayday (The One and Only DJ Krew) had partnered up with Jay to form a community of friends who share common interests.

The great thing? The Kickz Stand is a tight knit group of members and friends, and not just another Facebook group full of resellers trying to make a quick buck after lining up for hours to buy shoes 3 sizes too big or small for them (we’ve seen them all).

With this, they’re holding they’re second Kickz Stand Swap meet held at Pyrmont Community Centre, with prizes and giveaways on the day. There’ll be a bunch of vendors also from local designers, labels and businesses, so come down, buy, swap, sell, drool or cry because someone else had bought those black cements in your size.

Where: Pyrmont Community Centre
Address: Corner of John & Mount Street, Prymont NSW
When: 29/06/14
Time: 12:00PM to 3:30PM
Entry: FREE

Announcement! New member to The Living Mall, Central Park Sydney!

Posted by | Business, Music | 2 Comments

For those following my Instagram or DJ Xcentrik Facebook Fanpage, you would’ve seen me post a photo of what’s said to be one of the Top 10 buildings in the world, dubbed ‘The Living Mall’ that is the all new Central Park Sydney.

Sydney’s New Downtown. Live, work and shop at Central Park, Sydney’s new downtown destination where a global collaboration of architects and artists have created an exciting urban village.

Central Park has been built, designed and engineered by only the World’s Best which explains why it is one of the top ‘Skyscrapers’ in the world albeit it’s minimal levels. Not to mention their extended high-speed WiFi throughout the precinct it’s quickly becoming a central hub, for young shoppers and uni students from surrounding campuses.

There are many high tech and environmentally friendly solutions that have been built around the building itself and its surroundings, many of which I’m still yet to get my head around, but Central Park is not just any ordinary Shopping Mall, but an all-new and quickly growing community-focused centre aiming to take you away from the hustle and bustle of the Sydney CBD.

With this, I’d like to officially and proudly announce that I’ve been approached by Central Park to come onboard and manage their music inhouse, ambience, as well as assist in driving this through their social media channels through various marketing campaigns and events. It’s a new role that’s been created and will be starting it all from scratch due to launch soon! I’ll be working closely with the team at Central Park to help get it all underway and get the community involved. I can assure you, there’ll be something for everyone, even if you’re not physically there!

WINNING! Thanks to Store DJ and UDG Gear

Posted by | DJ Equipment, Music | No Comments

A couple of weeks back, I entered a simple Facebook competition (those who follow me on Facebook would be aware) that was held by Store DJ in collaboration with UDG Gear to celebrate their Facebook page getting 20,000 Likes! Congrats guys!

All I had to do was explain in 25 words or less what I would buy and what I would do with it. A week later I received a call from the Store DJ HQ in Melbourne notifying me that I’ve won the runners up prize! This was a big excitement for me as the last time I won any sort of prize was in primary school when I won a Gameboy (which I still have to this day) at the School Fete!

So I’m not gonna tell you what my winning answer was, my inner mind screams out CHEEESEEEE but what I can do is tell you what I won!

Thanks to UDG Gear I won,

UDG Laptop Stand valued at $179.95
UDG Creater 120 CD Tank Case valued at $95.00
UDG Creator Wheeled MIDI Controller Case 22inch valued at $339.00

That’s a whopping total of $613.95 of FREE gear! Now just like you all, I’m a sucker for freebies, but as grateful as I am to have won all this, I have to be honest and admit that unfortunately I have no use for these prizes.

1. I’ve already got 3 laptop stands that all do their job well enough and barely get a chance to use them as it is.
2. I don’t use CDs at all (I carry a few backup mixtapes and Serato Control CDs totaling maximum 5-6 CDs that fit easily in my DJ backpack)
3. My Pioneer DDJ SX is way too big for the roller bag and I already have Pioneer hardcase for this.

So, yes these are all useless to me. I called up the Store DJ reps who advised me they can’t be exchanged for store credit as it was actually promo products given by UDG Gear. What to do? Straight to eBay and Gumtree it was, and although the Laptop stand sold quite quickly there’s barely been any interest in the CD Wallet and Controller bag, so if anyone reading this is interested in some brand new UDG gear at a bargain price, let me know! Perhaps if I hold onto the bag long enough I’ll put a video review together for those interested in purchasing.
