Funkstörung (pronounced "foonk-shteuroong"): German for aural interference, also a play on words
"funk" = radio "störung" = distortion. Distorted funk indeed.

Rosenheim, Germany's production duo Michael Fakesch and Chris De Luca have an unforgettably unique and recognizable sound. First found on a compilation of their remixes entitled Additional Productions (1999), then on their Appetite for Disctruction (April 2000) full-length debut, Funkstörung's unrivaled vocal-splicing, groove-shredding, taste-proliferating style is equally strong on Vice Versa - their second compilation of remixes to date.

Dosing each of their remixes with an injection of electronic noise, digital soul, and cinematic ambience, Funkstörung are purveyors of futuristic form. Boasting original tracks by A Guy Called Gerald, Jean Michel Jarre, Nils Patter Molvaer, and other internationally known producers, Vice Versa is a hip-hop inflected blend of jazz, electro, and drum'n'bass, brought full-circle by Funkstörung's masterful studio wizardry.

Rare production talents make Funkstörung one of dance music's most in-demand remix outfits out there. Having contributed remixes for artists like Björk, Wu-Tang Clan, and the East Flatbush Project, Funkstörung has always defied musical boundaries by crossing and blending genres to create something entirely their own. On Vice Versa, Fakesch and De Luca seduce their listeners into a near-catatonic, alluringly-hypnotic pleasure state - truly a Funkstörung trademark.

Funkstörung recently announced that they had seperated as a group on their newly-designed website although this can only be good news to fans as both Chris De Luca and Michael Fakesch are now persuing solo careers.
