Funkalicious

Heavy, heavy funk & sweet, sweet soul

What & Where

Funkalicious is a regular DJ spot currently in residence at the White Horse in Brixton, London. At Funkalicious we play a mixture of well-known funk & soul classics mixed with rarer stuff from American independant labels and the hot modern sound of today’s healthy worlwide funk scene. The key is neither to sound like bedroom-bound collector nerds nor to bore fans of genuine music by playing tracks they may have heard a million times – but to strike a nice balance. Basically if most people in the venue are dancing and having a good time, we have done our bit. See our list of 100 top tunes below to give you an indication…
