From the moment Full On Funk got his first cassette-tape, he started enjoying music to the fullest. After buying his first equipment, the “annoying the neighbors” project could get started! When eventually the neighbors moved out, after years of asking “to turn down all the *&%$# noise” Full on Funk realized how deep the impact of music on peoples lives can be. This live-lesson thought him to respect music differently and see it as the powerful tool it can be.
Full on Funk’s sound can’t be labeled by one single genre. His goal in both his sets and his productions is to combine different styles and create a whole new feel of techno music. For him “Funk” stands for daring to stand out and be different.
Depending on the type of venue he’s playing, the time-slot he’s been given and the reactions of the crowd, a set from Full on Funk can differ from laidback, lounge-like Techno to strong, dark pounding Techno, providing a new meaning to what it is to be a DJ.
As of April 2016 Full on Funk started the 50:HERTZ community. Together with guys like Jamie Fullick, Mitch de Klein and Janick Megroot he hosts a weekly radioshow on both Deep FM and Diesel FM. The philosophy of this community is to bring the people within the Techno-scene together, creating new relations and opportunities. To that extend the 50:HERTZ community hosted their first official event during ADE 2016, which already led to several great cooperations in which the positive energy and like-mindedness could be sensed not only by the people involved, but also by the crowd, making it an experience they’ll never forget.
