The creation of Crown Street Cut Collective aficionado, DJ Klevakutz, the night aims to inject a fresh hit of flavour to the Sydney scene. As the DJ’s go head-to-head on the decks, each week also comes correct with a live paint on the night.

The first night kicks off with Days One (DCA) blessing the room with his unique style and effortless ability. Sydney born and bred, Days’ versatile, photorealistic spray-paint skills have led him to showcase work in streets, galleries, museums, cultural centres and publications throughout the world.
