College Of Knowledge is a Strong & Handsome duo from Coburg. The partnership of Lachlan Stuckey (AKA Fairbanks) and Jethro Curtin delves into numerous musical spheres; as DJs pushing the soulful side of record racks; as composers and performers of funk, soul and jazz, and as record label partners, releasing crusty instrumental music out of their analogue-focused home studio.
Since meeting at music school as two young guitarists, Fairbanks and Jethro have put their roots down deep in the Melbourne music scene, establishing the College Of Knowledge Records label in 2018 to issue recordings of the rougher side of underground soul music.
Fairbanks & Jethro’s DJ sets are a reflection of a strong musical bond and deep friendship; enthusiastically and intuitively navigating old sounds from a new perspective. These sets trace the uplifting modern soul cuts, wild jazz-funk explorations, thumping disco heavers and deep afro jams that fill their shared crates.
