Chicago’s underground music and ghetto house legend live and direct from Paris. Explicit lyrics. Parental advisory needed!
Pioneer, ghetto-house icon, Chi-town legend. Growing up on the musically rich West Side of the Windy City, _(artist-name)DJ Funk_ was exposed to Chicago, New York, and Detroit dance music at an early age. Building on these influences, he got his start as teenage DJ playing house parties, school dances, and neighborhood clubs, selling mixtapes in the ’hood with his former Do or Die crew. A hip hop head at heart, Funk was among the first to push rap music into Chicago’s club scene, laying the foundation for the sound most commonly associated with his name. Mixing house, techno, and hip hop, Funk pioneered what became known as ghetto house or booty house - the motherless child of a genre by conviction, decidedly rude and uncompromising to any dancefloor attendant. Anthem upon anthem speckles his résumé, oftentimes released on his very own label Dance Mania Records. Plus, Funk’s remix sheet reads like the who’s who of dance music: _(artist-name)Basement Jaxx_, _(artist-name)Justice_, _(artist-name)DJ Sneak_, _(artist-name)Fast Eddie_, and many, many more. Shake it just a little bit faster for a legend of underground dance music.
