Funkagenda

Funkagenda is a DJ/Producer/Engineer from the UK. He produces mainly house, tech house, techno and a sprig of minimal. "I started producing back when massive workstations like the Korg 01W and the Yamaha SY99 stalked the earth. My father and grandfather used to have a club act doing rock and 60s/70s covers and went to amazing lengths to make their backing sequences sound like the originals. I used to help them out, playing a few notes here and there and got involved in trying to make patches. My love for sequencing came really from that. Every instrument I got after that I wanted to know how to push to its limit!"

Funkagenda started making house music in the early 'Noughties' and over the last four years, he has carved a bit of a name for himself. More recently, he teamed up with Toolroom Records boss and DJ/Producer Mark Knight and last year our cover of Laurent Garnier's 'Man With The Red Face' was an absolute monster... "Even I got sick of it!", says Funkagenda. Currently, he's working on a barrage of new material, plus the first installment of a sample CD range.

Funkagenda and FabFilter

"I found out about FabFilter when I first got my Mac G5 and was auditioning filter plug-ins. I came across FabFilter Volcano and its potential just blew me away. Since then I have used all of the plugins on a regular basis."

"One of my favourites is FabFilter Twin. This is quite possibly the nastiest synth known to man. When you REALLY get involved with programming on this badboy, you can produce sounds that would shatter magma or rip your Nan in half. It's SO essential I have 3 instances of it already assigned on my Logic + Ableton templates".

"Then FabFilter Simplon: This is AWESOME. It's just a filter... simple... but probably the best sounding filter I have ever used. And its SOOOOO smooth. I like the sound of this to the old Mutronics Mutator... the rez is fat and the low pass 24hz setting on the filter can shake a donkey's teeth loose".
