Biography

Jorge Jaramillo aka Who Da Funk career is punctuated by great musical achievements. Jaramillo’s journey began in 2001 when he was signed to Erick Morillos newly established record label Subliminal/SUBUSA Records. On Subliminal/SUBUSA Records, Jorge released numerous singles and remixes as well as the ‘Subliminal Winter Sessions 3 & 4’ mix compilation series. Though known for his pioneering contributions to the early 90’s “Miami Bass” scene as Dj Lace (with fellow Vicious Bass group members MC Madness and Wizzy), Jorge Jaramillo’s new found love was “House Music” the genre which he has embraced as his life and for life.

His first works on the Subliminal/SUBUSA record label (as Who Da Funk) were remixes for Sun Kings, Bob Sinclair, Those Two and Modjo. Following a string of successful remixes, Jaramillo’s first original release on Subliminal Records was the song “Sting Me Red” (Who Da Funk) along with fellow band member Alex Alicea. Sting Me Red became a huge overnight success in the U.K. where it was heralded as a master piece. Jorge Jaramillo was on his rise to stardom and would quickly score big with his follow up single ‘Shiny Disco Balls’ featuring Jessica Eve, making him a household name, catapulting and solidifying his global acceptance in the ‘House Music’ world.

“Shiny Disco Balls” became an international dance floor anthem and spent eight weeks in the UK Top 40 chart earning him cover features in I-DJ and DJ Magazines. He performed his hit song live in front of millions of people during the T.V. show ‘Top of the Pops’. That same year, Jaramillo also received 2 back to back Winter Music Conference Awards, one for ‘Best House Track’ and the other for ‘Best Underground Track’. But despite his success, this “larger than life” music producer/dj who was at the forefront of a slew of talented producers to come out of New Jersey, helped define what would become the backbone for proper House Music. But throughout, Jaramillo remained grounded about his good fortunes and achievements.

Currently, with “Big Room and EDM” seeing a rapid decline, and the listeners wanting the old skool/mid skool vibe back in the clubs, Jaramillo’s productions have begun to reflect this re-emergence of quality House Music’s demand by going back to his Miami and Dirty Jersey House roots. Jorge Jaramillo has begun to incorporate the old skool 808/909/303 sounds in his productions and in late 2015 recruited “Female Miami Rapper” Samantha Rosenberg aka “Rosen” to lay down some lyrics on his production.

Jaramillo and Rosen have begun work on a full length album titled “We Are 808” with 2016 as the year of the album’s debut.

With work on his own imprint Lectro Chik Records, known for an energetic performance, trotting around the globe and filming his music videos, Jorge Jaramillo continues to prove himself as one of the worlds finest House Music producer/DJs. The future for Jorge promises yet further success, both as the solo artist, label CEO and the DJ we all love to smile along with.

As a producer, Jorge has worked with, J-Lo, Marc Almond, Erick Morillo, and Cristina Aguilera to name a few.

Early House Music influences were Bassment Jaxx, Felix Da House Cat, Miss Kittin and Vitalic.

Early Producer influences were Pretty Tony, Arthur Baker, The Hacker.

Learned the art of Mix Engineering through his mentor Dave Darlington.
