For the first time in years, house mainstay Funkagenda will hit our shores for a five-date Australian tour in September / October 2012.
From the early roots of his West Midland's studio, to pioneering releases through reputed major labels, Funkagenda's stamp on dance music can be felt across Europe, North, Central and South America, the Middle East, Australia, Russia and Japan. A devoted passion for music, alongside an embrace of technology, has fortified Funkagenda as a vanguard of the "tough but melodic big room house sound" (DJ Mag).
Originally championed by Positiva, Subliminal, Defected, Azuli and Big Love, as well as being a key member of the iconic Toolroom Records, Funkagenda has taken the next logical step in his career and become creative commander of Funk Farm, a prospect that looks set to cultivate him as an artist with a mass of production credentials and no doubt a further slew of awards.
With a wealth of praise from artists across the dance music board, Funkagenda can be noted as the producer's producer, backed up with his critically acclaimed mix album that was released on Toolroom Records in October 2009, further consolidating a growing portfolio of success. Since the dominoes started to fall, Funkagenda has been a firmly fixed name across global music charts, regularly achieving Beatport No.1 positions. Funkagenda's sound attracts musical partnerships across a spectrum of genres, remixing artists including Basement Jaxx, Nero, Moby, Mark Knight, Fatboy Slim and Dirty Vegas to name but a few. His production contributions to the Black Eyed Peas album 'The E.N.D.' helped them win a Grammy for 'Best Pop Vocal Album'
But in essence, Funkagenda's deeply personal DJ sets and production have built the boy from the Black Country a rising international fan base. Accumulating fierce support both on and off the dance floor, from industry to individuals, Funkagenda continues to charge across the battlefields of dance; as a DJ, a producer and a fervent contributor to the world of music.
