Shake It into the Weekend with the Funk Hunters at Rough Trade NYC

February 9th, 2018

Vancouver, B.C., DJ duo the Funk Hunters—Duncan Smith and Nick Middleton—have been mashing together old-school funk, disco, hip-hop and soul with new-school electronic music to make their own winning future-funk sounds that have been featured on big festival stages across the world for close to a decade. When they first began performing live, it was just mixers, turntables and video software, but somewhere along the way they started to occasionally add live instrumentation to the mix, to great effect. But either way, they’ll get you to the dance floor. And with just a few dates left on their winter tour, the Funk Hunters play Rough Trade NYC tonight, with the bass-heavy Defunk opening.
