Collectable OZ + NZ Jazz Funk


DIGGIN’ UP YOUR OWN BACKYARD
Since Northside’s inception, one of our specialties has been Australian and NZ funk. We constantly have a comprehensive selection of some of the most sought after LPs from around Australia and New Zealand, along with the occassional OZ/NZ funk 45. The selection features seminal Australian jazz artists such as Brian Brown, Judy Bailey, Allan Lee, Col Nolan, George Golla, Bruce Clarke, John Sangster and more. Plus, there is a tasty selection of funk from the likes of Quincy Conserve, Daly Wilson Big Band, Galapagos Duck, Hot City Bump Band — and of course Melbourne’s own Bamboos and Cookin’ on 3 Burners.

If you’re familiar with compilations such as Respect Overdue and Heading in the Right Direction (Topper!) then you’ll know that there is some incredible music to be found right here in Melbourne and all over Australia — and the well hasn’t dried up yet… Come down and browse the selection for a taste of what’s on offer.

Here’s a  mixtape selection of Oz Funk & shiz that one of our friends put together. Hopefully over the next couple of weeks we’ll enable audio downloads from the Northside site so you will be able to download this mix, and hopefully many more DJ mixes from the Northside Friends & Family Collective. Stay tuned.
