Battle of the funk

The gloves are off, bar a sequinned one a la Michael Jackson here or there, for Funkademia’s DJ competition this Saturday (11th February).

Four lucky spinners will be competing to play a main room set at the weekly event, which the organisers claim to be is ‘Manchester’s longest running club night‘.

They are Mr A (aka Josimar), who’s a resident playing deep house at Basement Manchester and soul, funk and disco DJ Dave Hudson.

The other competitors are Paul Hilton who, according to his Soundcloud page is a ‘funk junkie’, and house, hip hop and funk lover Richard Best.

Check out their mixes in the order I’ve named them above, here, here, here and here and catch them live in the Baby Funk room at Mint Lounge on Saturday night.

Main room DJs are Keith Griffiths and Jon Busstop.

Location: Mint Lounge, Oldham Street, Manchester – Time: 10.30pm to 3.30pm – Tickets: £5/6. Pick up your advance ticket here.
