With his Album Launch on the night our main man was born in the year of the Tiger, Tigermoth’s (aka Tim Patterson) Beats Take you on on an aural journey. A multi instrumentalist who chooses to express himself using turntables, samplers and FX while his film background and Jazz learning’s allow him to compose sets that tell a story. Tigermoth will be previewing and promoting music from His up and coming Album Effort & Essence…

Somewhere in the musical ether that connects arrays of genres, you'll find Tigermoth floating through sounds, and feeding off different eras. A healthy dose of Electric Jazz, Boom Bap, psychadelica, world music, and LA beats, make up his musical diet.

Born in the Chinese year of the Tiger, Tigermoth's (a.k.a. TiM Paterson) beats take you on an aural journey. He is a multi instrumentalist who chooses to express himself using turntables, samplers and FX. His intelligent mixing attests his abstract turntabilism, while his film background and jazz leanings allow him to compose sets that tell a story.

A prolific producer, Tigermoth has multiple solo releases, and is in high demand for his remix and soundtrack work. He has recorded, performed with and supported a vast array of artists including DJ Krush, MF DOOM, Jon Wayne, Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, Del the Funky Homosapien, Oh No, Kool Keith, EL-P, De La Soul, The Opus, Gaslamp Killer, and Cut Chemist.

Benny Hinn (Daniel Robertson) began spinnin’ vinyl back in 01′ playing a range of phat funky house and some chunky big assed broken beats for the masses… Although now only 34, the Hinns has played at some of the finer establishments, parties and festivals around Sydney, Melbourne, Cairns, Spain, Wollongong and the South coast, gaining a rep az a bit of a party starter and one with some def skillz, finesse and sheer artistry on a pair of 1200s.

His latest venture has been building and establishing PLAY BAR SYDNEY.

He has programmed every bit of music that has come through the venue and supported a huge range of hip hop, breakbeat DJs and just awesome beat-makers and producers both local and abroad.
