Evan Chandler aka Slynk had music on the mind from birth. Naturally gifted with a musical ear he flirted with a range of classical instruments including piano, guitar and drums.
In 2004, Slynk received a gift that would inevitably set the wheels in motion. A set of turntables motivated the aspiring DJ, and consequently resulted in an unremitting addiction to vinyl. The two years following, in his hometown Brisbane, Slynk secured a residency in an underground New York inspired caf. Here he refined his skills, experimented and educated his peers and fans with mash up productions of classic hip hop, ingrained with rare and funky, rhythmically savvy grooves.
In April 2008 local DJ agencies started showing a zealous interest and in time Slynk was running rampage and shaking rumps throughout Brisbanes most notorious funky joints. Bedroom DJ no longer, Slynk was fulfilling his destiny as one of Australias leading funky breakbeat DJs and producers.
Regular interstate and international gigs reaped overwhelming support and love from the worlds most respected funky breaks vinyl slingers including A Skillz, Krafty Kuts, Featurecast, Mooqee, Fort Knox Five, Freddy Fresh Worldwide, Craig Charles (BBC 6Music) and many more. In 2009 Slynk smashed the Fractal Forest stage at Canadas biggest breakbeat festival, Shambhala, simultaneously releasing his first three vinyls on respected ghetto funk labels Goodgroove and Manmade. All of which featured in Juno Records Best of Breakbeat 2009 list hitting number 1, 12 & 30. 2011 saw Slynk invited back to smash Fractal Forest again, this time opening up for the king of ghetto funk, A Skillz.
Slynks reputation stems from his inventory of unreleased and unsigned party style ghetto funk bootlegs, remixes and edits. His work is highly sought after by DJs around the world while his forward momentum knows no boundaries, releasing more tracks with Jalapeno Records Goodgroove, Manmade, Breakbeat Paradise, Roca Records, Bombstrikes and Discocakes.
