America’s rudest, lewdest dance producer will hit London this Friday.

Since the early ’90s, DJ Funk has been pushing some of the most potent dance music the world’s ever seen – a pioneer of the ghetto-house brand of Chicago club music, he’s released regularly on the seminal Dance Mania label, and remixed the likes of Justice, Basement Jaxx and more. His 1999 album Booty House Anthems is a stone cold classic, and his live show is one of the most raucous you’re ever likely to see: expect sweat, no shirt, vodka and a lot of thrusting.

He’ll be headlining a cross-promotional night by Wifey and Wavy Tones at South London’s Bussey Building, with Unknown to the Unknown handling the second room. Support comes from BBC 1xtra regular DJ Q, grime archivist turned dancefloor heavyweight Slackk, recent Rustie collaborator and Slovenian singer/producer Nightwave, Roll Deep’s Riko, Mista Men, Palace and more.
