Captain K

Captain K’s selections are a testament to her love of the late 70’s and early 80’s, with a particular love for disco, modern soul, boogie, afrobeat, JCity pop and yacht rock. 

Since 2018, Captain K has been a part of the Sydney Soul Weekender crew, a group of DJ’s who put on an annual rare and northern soul weekender. They hosted the Australian National Northern Soul Weekender in 2022, and are gearing up to host this year’s local event on 23-25 August. She also joined the all-female/non-binary Queen Bee DJ Collective in 2021.

The Captain co-hosts a regular night of soul, funk and disco called ‘Wax Tropical’ at Tucano’s in Surry Hills with Prince Mikey. She is also a resident DJ at Rekodo, and runs a quarterly night, Rare Pleasures, at the Trocadero Room, as well as DJing at the home of the Queen Bees, the Hive Bar. The Captain has also played at events such as Underground Disco New Years Eve and Sydney Streets festival. 

She has had guest appearances on a number of radio shows including Sounds of Soul and Merchants of Sound (Eastside FM), The FeverPitch (Orbital), the Departure Lounge (2SER) and had the pleasure of doing a mix for Tropicante Sound Sistema’s YouTube series, TropiStories. 

This is Captain K’s first 45 Day mix.
