Biography

Funk Lab started in the mid nineties as a mission to create funky electro beats now has become a staple of the funky/electro Florida sound. There was a blending and fusing of funky breaks and electro beats which later became known as the Funk Lab. With influences coming from their efforts as DJs within the breaks community, the two had been immersed within the sound that they had come to love. With a diverse back catalog ranging from Florida style funky breaks to the darker, moodier electro, the Funk Lab has engaged a variety of listeners from both the US and abroad.

As soon as the first release was available on vinyl, licensing requests began from such labels as Street Beat, Adrenalin, Journees, Zazoo, Pioneer, and others. Tracks became staples of electro and funky breaks mix compilations as well as backing music for MTV programming and EA’s “Need For Speed IV High Stakes” for the Sony Playstation. The Funk Lab was breaking new ground and finding new fans within a diverse universe of media.

During the early years of the Funk Lab, the idea was tossed around to do a live performance, bringing the fans and artists together, exploring the music, re-editing, re-mixing, and re-shaping the tunes that had drawn them in. The first several shows were enough to propel several years worth of weekend touring, playing from San Juan, Puerto Rico to Vancouver, Canada with gigs in most major cities friendly to dance music. These Live performances drove the inspiration to continue to push the limits of what could be done with live sequencing. Utilizing two MPC2000’s, Zip Discs and other various hardware at the shows became the staple of the live Funk Lab experience.
