From the early roots of his West Midland studio, to pioneering releases through reputed major labels, Funkagenda’s stamp on dance music can be felt across the world. A devoted passion for music alongside an embrace of technology, has fortified Funkagenda as a vanguard of the ‘tough but melodic big room house sound’ (DJ Mag)
Adam Walder aka Funkagenda has risen from some of house music’s most iconic labels, including Positiva, Subliminal, Defected, Azuli and Big Love. Additionally to being a key member of Toolroom Records and owner of his own Funk Farm label, 2013 has seen Funkagenda release the two-track Samsara EP on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak label, thereby becoming a member of the world renowned Dim Mak family and headlining Dim Mak events in the US.
Another highlight in early 2013 was Funkgenda’s remix Zedd’s Clarity, where he turned in a pounding version of the track that gave the original its very own electrogressive spin.
From the Zedd & Friends parties in Miami, to residencies at Space and shows at Pacha in Ibiza, to touring across India, Funkagenda’s has made his undisputable mark as a truly international DJ. This year saw him accomplish one of his dreams, playing a set at the legendary Burning Man alongside his friends, Nervo and Michael Woods.
Funkagenda’s sound attracts musical partnerships across a spectrum of genres, remixing artists such as Basement Jaxx, Moby, Fatboy Slim and Dirty Vegas. His production contributions to the Black Eyed Peas album ‘The E.N.D.’ were further recognized by an Album of the Year nomination and a Best Pop Vocal Album award at the 52nd Annual Grammys.
Funkagenda’s deeply personal DJ sets and production have built the boy from the Black Country a huge international fan base. Accumulating fierce support both on and off the dance floor, from industry to individuals, 2014 is set to be an even bigger year for Funkagenda – as a DJ, a producer and a fervent contributor to the world of music.
