Biography

Funk Shui and his dedication to the future of the beat is apparent from his enthusiastic live dj performances to the hours he spends in the studio working on new forms of EDM. For 7 years now he has been blurring the lines between electro, house, techno, and breaks into one Dynamic sound. Having musical interest in punk rock and reggae he first heard the beat in the breaks and drum and bass Orlando scene gravitating towards these dark and twisted sounds. After a move back to his hometown of Chicago, along with more deck time his ear shifted to the funkier sounds of house music. This along with being able to see so much great talent inspired him to pursue this love. While another move to Phoenix helped push his sound in to more electro and techno regions of dance music. He has now been back in Chicago for 3 years with what he describes as The Future Sound of House.

Funk Shui has a new mixed cd Electro Punk, Progressive Funk vol. 2 and original track titled Ingredient #3 are scheduled to be released in Jan 2006 on INNOVIII. While also handling the A and R for INNOVIII, he is busy finding the sounds of tomorrow and working in the studio vigorously on original, remix and collaboration work. Expect to see a lot of this released before March 2006. The end of 2005 through late Jan 2006 will see Funk Shui launch regional tours through out the US and Canada to support his latest efforts.
