Becki De Funk
With her track signing to Groovedigital Records (Do Me Right Now) with House Music Veteran Danny Kane, featuring on numerous NUDisco compilation albums, produced and including vocals by Becki, and being a featured DJ on the documentary “Behind The Decks”, this lady is definitely one to watch. Working hard behind the scenes on a brand new EP, being featured on BBC radio, the upcoming 12 months are set to be explosive!
At the tender age of 21 Becki played for her favourite Birmingham club brand “Fuel” which in turn led to a residency which is still held today. Residencies and gigs include SOUP @ The Rainbow, Miss Moneypenny’s , Fuel VIP, Elevate, Status, and regular appearances throughout Clubs in The Midlands and UK wide. Previously touring with Miss Moneypenny’s as well as playing for the highly respected production of Heroes of House with the likes of Jeremy Healy, CJ Mackintosh and Alex P
You can find Becki spinning the tunes for world famous brand Miss Moneypenny’s as their resident DJ in Phuket, Thailand for the next 6 months. To even be offered this residency proves her success and talent.
She’d been selected as the DJ for SOUL by Ludacris headphones leading to DJ at the Gadget Show NEC. Officially performed for Cosmopolitan Magazine. Was the Official DJ for the VIP launch of F-Type Jaguar in Central London, and as the Store Launch DJ for UGG Australia beating numerous respected Birmingham DJ’s to the post. This may be due to being described by Jim ‘Shaft ‘ Ryan as on the cusp of being one of the UK’s leading Female House DJ’s on his Radio Show podcast.
Very few female DJ’s have been playing consistently for almost 2 decades like Becki giving her the edge with performance. Music runs through her and this is obvious from her sets, engaging with the crowd and thoroughly having fun whilst playing.
This multi-faceted DJ and producer has largely been respected for his up-front house sets . His passion for his music, desire to excite and move the crowds he plays for ensures that only the freshest tunes grace his decks. ” My main aim when I play is to have total control of the dance floor, to give the crowd an unforgettable and up-lifting experience – to play something fresh –all the time considering the impact of the music on the atmosphere of the club”
His impassioned attitude and faultless sets have led Ade to play at some of the finest venues both in the UK and internationally, giving him the opportunity to play alongside some of the worlds biggest DJs. Early Hacienda experiences, inspiration and encouragement from family friend, the late, Tony De Vit made Ades mind up about what would become his driving force.
Ade first cut his teeth at 18 when asked to play by Andy Ward aka “Soul Central” at Marco Polos. The response to his set was more than he could have hoped for. His reputation quickly grew and the bookings came flooding in. Firstly playing various nights throughout the west Midlands…Crunch, Wobble, then residencies at The Emporium in Coalville, Pushca at The Canal Club, The Hush Club in Birmingham and Time & Envy in Stoke on Trent with Mark and Adrian Luvdup. During this period Ade was also running his own night at The Bassment and was playing on several boat parties.
Eventually he was booked to play his first Ibiza residency by Alex P to play at Eden in San Antonio. Whilst holding down several UK residencies he caught the attention of the infamous Miss Moneypennys founder Jim “Shaft” Ryan and subsequently played for them regularly over the last 13 years at their once flagship Birmingham venue (Bonds – HQ) and on many of their world tours including Russia and Switzerland and of course Ibiza. Here he has enjoyed sharing the billing with Erick Morillo, Eric Prydz, DJ Disciple, Benny Bennassi and of course Jim Shaft Ryan. Never one to stand still or rest on his laurels Ade is consistently pushing himself to progress and evolve.
