Sicario delivers his ‘Ganja Man’ EP on Refuge Recordings


Canadian talent Sicario delivers two slabs of deep, dubby, techy tribal rhythm for Australia’s burgeoning Refuge Recordings.

‘Ganja Man’ channels classic reggae vibes into its minimalist, heads-down groove. Taut percussion slaps against murky bass throbs and trippy vocal dubs to make for a cool and deadly moment. ‘Time Trippin’ heads deeper into techno territory with its shuffling groove permeated by twanging, sub-aquatic FX and feisty percussive rhythms, bugged-out spoken word samples and supremely meaty kick drums. No-nonsense grooves for focused floors.

Sicario has been rocking crowds from coast to coast for the last 20+ yrs. Sicario started out in the Drum & Bass scene back in the early 90’s and continued to smash it everywhere he went. Until his 1st year of University, when he went and saw Hippe & Halo and then he was bitten again by the house bug. Over the years Sicario has played alongside Jason Hodges, Hatiras, Flipside, Demuir to name a few, and with releases on Late Night Jackin, Pluralistic Records, Purveyor Underground and Frosted Recordings and now the mighty Refuge Recordings.

Sicario says “Growing up, I was heavily influenced by old school jungle. Diving into my own collection looking for inspiration, these two favourites of mine jumped out and fit perfectly with the jackin sound I love to produce.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
