Discofunk started as a gathering in a tiny Kentish Town basement for a bunch of best mates, and over the last few years has gone on to become a fully fledged posse of like minded DJs, muso’s and party people centred around quality music and disco culture.
From guest mixes to festival stage takeovers, Discofunk is a platform that celebrates all walks of the genre from old school glam to the more modern, deeper sound. The Discofunk Allstars are also known for a strong identity that incorporates jazz,soul and world infused house music – bringing their renowned positive energy to Gottwood, Labyrinth SGP, Lost Festival, Snowbombing, Craft Beer Rising Festival and a number of London bars and clubs over the last coupe of years.
Although big name headliners have never been part of the agenda for the brand – They’ve been honoured to have special and secret guests that include the likes of James Priestley (secretsundaze), Kay Suzuki (Afrobuddah/Round in Motion), Itchy Rich (Road to Nowhere) and Jamie Jones (hot creations/paradise).
Discofunk is more than the music – it’s a message. While the mixes online display their sound, the energy can only really be felt during live sets. This was especially the case in 2016 when head honchos Funkwise (Discofunk) & Cordz (The London Disco Society) played b2b for 15 hours at Bestival. The message is one of perpetuating only positive energy, pursuing music as a passion over money, and encouraging people to ‘do what they love, and love what they do!’ It is due to this very energy that 2016 was such a profound year for everyone involved.
The Discofunk Allstars are a steadily growing gang, currently hosting a fortnightly takeover at the Bermondsey Yard Cafe, SE London – with a handful more in the pipeline already for this year.
