Mr Lob

Jazz has always been with me, always in the background, I just didn't recognise it until I was older and ready to let it envelope me in all its sounds, beauty and wildness.

About Me

I am a Melbourne based Dj and Music Collector and have been active on the Melbourne Dj scene since 1999.

Some of the highlights of my Dj career so far are being placed #5 in the world for the ‘Most Listened To Funk-Soul-Jazz Shows’ in 2017 on Mixcloud:

and #17 in Mixcloud’s ‘Best Of 2015 Eclectic’ worldwide category:

My live Dj sets are generally an eclectic blend of funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae, Afrobeat and Latin, while my mixes tend to be more genre specific. The one thing you can say about my style is that whatever I play it has to have a real funky, jazzy and soulful sensibility.

My Jazz Story

Published on: 2018-10-05

For me life is a "Jazz Thing" and the older I get and more deeper submerged into Jazz and all it's sub genres I become, the more I fall into it's all encompassing arms and it's rhythms become my daily rhythms and help form and inform my routines. Jazz has always been with me, always in the background, I just didn't recognise it until I was older and ready to let it envelope me in all its sounds, beauty and wildness. It is the sound of a heart beating, the pain and joy of life, the struggle for freedom, the struggle of the oppressed and to be heard, to break free, to strive and to feel alive.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
