LISTEN TO THE FUNK HUNTERS LATEST REMIX (Fort Knox Five - 'Whatcha Gonna Do'):
For Immediate Release:
December 4, 2015
(Vancouver, BC) - Get ready to Funk The Halls! Vancouver DJs The Funk Hunters are back in town from touring internationally to play 2 hometown shows at The Commodore Ballroom (868 Granville St.) on December 22nd and 23rd. The 22nd is already sold out, but tickets are still available for the 23rd at Ticketmaster.ca, see below for complete show details.
2015 has been a breakout year for The Funk Hunters. They've played 75 shows in 5 countries and brought the Funk to some world class festivals including Electric Forest, Sonic Bloom, What The Festival, Squamish, Shambhala & Envision. The Funk Hunters also opened up for The Roots, collaborated and toured extensively with Chali 2na of Jurassic 5, and produced remixes for Imagine Dragons & Selena Gomez. The hustle will continue in 2016 with tours planned in Europe, Australia and New Zealand with Chali 2na.
Based in Vancouver, BC, The Funk Hunters (Nick Middleton and Duncan Smith) elevate their signature bass heavy sound with their own stunning custom-curated visuals and animated stage presence. Borrowing inspiration from classic funk and hip hop, The Funk Hunters are putting the soul back into electronic dance music. Having honed their craft at over 450 performances in 16 countries, the DJ duo's show is a brilliant technical display of creative collaboration between 4 turntables. But words can't do justice to two friends whose passion is dance floor mastery – breathless audiences at global festivals including Wakarusa, Burning Man, Rhythm & Vines, Shambhala, Ottawa Bluesfest, and Envision are the ultimate testament. Spend an evening with this charismatic duo and you'll see that their lifestyle is as relaxed as the west coast, but their sound is global and booming.
