At first we started as two music-loving friends who wanted to combine their passion and talent to share their love for the universal language called house. After a while of spinning and mixing we discovered the talent of a close friend who mastered the art of a machine known as the saxophone, and after a few try-outs The Funktionists where born! Being inspired by great artists such as Dennis Ferrer, Greenskeepers, Raoul Belmans, Derrick Carter, Jason Hodges, Inland Knights, Solid groove, Kerri Chandler and many, many more we started to create our own funky sound. The people seemed to appreciate the idea of two deejays mixing their fresh house beats supported by a soulful live saxophone act and soon we got more and more chances to spread our musical word. This was and still is our motivation to start producing our own beats and music, due the fact we want to use our own created saxophone samples this is still a work in progress. Eventually we'd like to offer some tracks of our own but at this time our main goal is to get those party-people going all night long!
