El Funkador was born in the port city Rotterdam. He grew up in a household where music was a way of life. With his mom being a singer and his stepdad a key player, it was only logic that he would follow in his parent footsteps. As a teenager he grew up with friends that shared the same passion for music and after years in a hiphop and R&B envirement, he was introduced to the house scene. Then he started playing vinyl in 2001 with main focus on House and Tech House with funky disco and jazzy influences. Inspired by names like: Derrick Carter, Dj Sneak, Armand van Helden, and Daft Punk too name a few. When he released his “Holla at my Soul EP” in 2015 on Dj Sneak’s Label Magnetic Recordings, he got more motivated and started building tune after tune.
With releases on Mood Funk Records, Juiced Music, MoodyHouse recordings, Spacedisco Records, Purveyor Underground, Fogbank, Too Many Rules, Monoside, Groovy Riddim, Onako and many more, he is not planning to slow down. There ‘s a lot more coming regarding remixes, collaborations with some of the best musicians and originals with new approaches you haven’t heard from him before.
