In Feb 2012 a young Canadian producer got in touch with us on SoundCloud. We wrote back and forth and had an EP ready to go within a month.
Then he disappeared for almost a year.
We finally tracked him down and found out he was on an incessant self-booked tour schedule. We revamped his debut EP in December 2012 and Retro Baby shot to top of the charts.
Based on this success Defunk delivered his first full-length album Welcome to Groove City in October of 2013, solidifying him as a contender when the album went #1 on both Beatport’s Glitch Hop and Hip Hop Top 100 Albums in just 2 days.
His follow-up EPs with High Chai explore deeper, sexier 808 vibes with a trademark Defunk-slant that continues to spank the charts. A unique fusion of groove, pounding bass & live instrumentation makes his funky new future-funk adventure approachable, familiar and unforgettable.
