The ultra-funk-ular Funkwerkstatt, the electronic music scene is like a cloudless night. Countless, equally brilliant stars light the sky. Many new acts are quickly discovered and disappear soon afterwards, like streaking satellites or pulsing comets. Still others are like space junk, spinning aimlessly through the nether. There are a few, however, that shine brighter than the others and despite their perennial presence, continue to burn brightly. Following a supernova in the year 1999, the constellation Funkwerkstatt appeared on the firmament of the Party Galaxy. The project, called into life by Derrick Porter and Nicola John on their own label, Superfancy, is well known for its individual, fresh and novel style of electro, minimal and tech-house sounds.
Numerous releases and remix projects, for fans of italo disco and kraftwerk sounds, are evidence of the artistically demanding accomplishments. Singer Dan Morro has woven his vocals into the instrumental tapestry of Derrick and Nicola since 2004, expanding the spectrum of the group's sound. Through their energetic live acts, the trio keeps winning the enthusiasm and sweat of their audiences. After countless gigs both in the party scene of their home region and beyond, they are setting off, like a celestial storm, to course through the national and international club universe. The ultra-funk-ular! They walk with the funk, they talk with the funk, they eat with the funk, they sleep with the funk, they live for the funk, they die for the funk. So now what do they say, when they walkin up the block? Boom shaka lak there goes the Funkwerkstatt!
