Funk…pure and simple. Raised in a culturally stunted area of Northern America DJ Jefferson Funk felt the callings of music at the tender age of 5. After becoming well acquainted with various traditional musical instruments he went from forming a high school thrash metal band to discovering the art of turntablism at age 17. Jefferson Funk followed his new found passion for scratching whole heartedly thanks to scratch DJs Mix Master Mike, Q-Bert and DJ Swamp. When performing for the masses Jefferson Funk has the uncanny ability to tap into the pulse of the crowd and create what he affectionately refers to as “Broken Beat Rhythm”; a complex tapestry of styles – House, Breaks, Big Beat, Techno, Jungle to Drum and Bass all woven into a beautiful masterpiece of sound designed to touch every heart and soul in the crowd.
Always finishing well in DJ battles across the Tri-State area, he became a local darling within the Midwest EDM scene headlining as his alter ego DJ Paode alongside such artists as Micro, DJ Funk, John Acquaviva, DJ Fixx and MC Flipside. In 2007 following the stirrings of his soul he relocated to sunny skies and the happiest place on earth… Orlando, Florida. There he found himself playing events with international talent the likes of DJ Dan, Simply Jeff, Charles Feelgood, DJ Icey, Keith MacKenzie and more.
DJ Jefferson Funk is never truly at home until he finds himself behind a pair of Technic turntables. Needles scratching and records flying, old school meets new mixed with a maelstrom of digital samples and musical tracks. An EDM Mash-Up Wizard with broken beat style, he integrates turntables with CDJs and showmanship to bring you something you’ve never seen before….
The Master of Funk awaits to blow your mind, be sure you don’t miss the show!
