Funk Bast*rd has been slicing through dance floors with his blend of deep house, jazz, hip-hop, soul,
funk, dub and everything elsein between. His unique sets have taken him numerously around the club
circuit and has played alongsidethe likes of Recloose, Yukihiro Fukutomi, Nik Weston, Russ Dewbury
at the JAZZROOMS, Jazzanova, Gerd Janson,Souleance, Jamie XX, Dam Funk and many others.
And together with his saxophonist / production partner in crime, Kaye, they have rocked dance
floors in Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and London in all sorts of settings : from outdoor
festivals to the smallest undergroundclubbing space. Most recently, their live outfit,Cosa Nostra
perfomed in Gilles Peterson's WorldwideFestival in Singapore last year.
On the production tip, their Cosa Nostra productions and notorious edits have been played on
the airwaves around the globe onvarious quality radio shows, and their remix of Kira Neris on
Faces Records out of France recently clinched the best seller spot on Bagpak online record store.
Now with his newly formed label Darker Than Wax receiving strong feedback and recognition,
things look set to shape up in a big way.
The Funk Bast*rd has always has something in the box that surprises, just open them ears and minds.
