Surecut Kids are a two-piece DJ act from the Gold Coast, Queensland. They go by the names of Mikey and Benji. Using four turntables and an MPC (resembling little drum machine that you hit with your hands like drums) they swing between party hip hop, funk, reggae,rock, nu-breaks, swing and the odd cheesey number while scratching and using turntablism as their mixing techniques.
Mikey and Benji met back in high school and were in the same surfing class. They found their love in music and DJing together and one day decided to buy their very first turntables together for fun. They started throwing parties at their homes every weekend. Eventually that evolved into them playing gigs at bars. Their passion grew and their performance was a great demand and they were soon asked to play gigs in big clubs/ bars.
