Style: Party Funk & Bass
When & Where:
Armed with 4-turntables and the unique ability to create live mashups and remixes, their DJ sets standout. Seamlessly blending original productions with everything from HipHop to Funk, Disco to House, Dubstep to DnB, and everything in between, The Funk Hunters create original sets never replicated. It’s not uncommon to find this duo headlining an all bass music festival one night and then performing a funk, soul, or boogie set the next. They have toured across Canada multiple times, played to crowds of thousands at renowned festivals such as the Shambhala Music Festival and the Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival, and have been invited to share the stage with musical pioneers like Z-Trip, RJD2, and Cut Chemist. In 2010, they completed their first month-long international tour, playing shows across the country of Brazil. 2012 will see them complete their first tour of the UK & Europe.
On the production front, their original music and remixes have been played around the world in clubs and on radio-stations alike. Signed to Ghetto Funk, Roca Records, Fort Knox Recordings, Manmade Records, Homebreakin Records, and Swing Set Sounds, The Funk Hunters’ releases prove again that their musical taste and influence spans all genres. They’ve now just launched their own label, ReSoul Records, to distribute future releases while still maintaining close partnerships with labels like Goodgroove Records (UK) to produce their own acclaimed events that bring international talent to Canada.
