Biography

What words can describe the one and only DJ Funk? Pioneer? Party Rocker? Ghetto House Icon? Let’s start at the beginning, DJ Funk grew up on the musically rich West Side of Chicago where he was exposed at an early age to Chicago, New York & Detroit dance music. Developing from his early influences he started DJing out when he was just a teenager at house parties, school dances, and neighborhood clubs; selling mix tapes in the hood with his former crew “do or die” to make ends meet. Some of his early DJ influence were Grand Master Flash, African Bambada, Farley Jack Master Funk; basically all the original dance pioneers and there’s to many to name. Hip-Hop was also a big influence on DJ Funk and with his early DJ sets he helped push Hip Hop into the chicago club scene when it’s wasn’t yet popular or mainstream. Mixing House, Techno and Hip-Hop DJ Funk pioneered the “Ghetto House” sound and this sense of crossing boundaries has made his music so appealing and enduring to many people across different musical scenes. DJing professional for over a decade DJ Funk has produced anthem after anthem of bouncing “Ass & Titty” Dance Music for his very own record company Dance Mania Records. Plus, Funk’s remix resumé reads like the who’s who of dance music: Basement Jaxx, Justice, DJ Sneak, Fast Eddie, to name a few. While licensing tracks to DJ’s such as Carl Cox, Bad Boy Bill, Humpty Vision, Jeff Miles, Dave Clark for their mix CD Albums.
