One Funk DJ, A world of Funk Performers, A Lifetime of Funk Experience/s.
This is a collective of DJ Johnny Deep performing with rotating International musicians, singers and percussionists. The aim is to bring the ‘Live’ experience back to the DJ and the dance floor using multiple shades of future funk electronica and only the best live performers. The vibe ranges from Lucid Lounge to Funky Breaks to Slo Disco House, To jacking House, to Deep House, Soulful House and Jazz House.
Future Funk Project has performed around the globe and at top venues and festivals in India. Submerge’s Nikhil Chinapa described Johnny’s live outfit as “his most favourite Sunburn moment” at The Sunburn Festival in 2009. Johnny Deep also rocked at the opening of Tote, Mumbai, playing to 2000 people with the help of Australia’s Simon Sax and the Official Defected percussionist.
Music Breakdown : Lucid Lounge is essentially Deep’s carefully selected journey in nu jazz, nu funk, nu soul, brazilica, dub hip hop, dub and much more. The Lucid tag is that the lounge vibe is deep and hynotising; and not your generic ‘fall asleep’ chill. The breaks range from 65-140 bpm and are phat, funky, future but vintage. Dave Allison is the pioneer of what Deep likes to call ‘Slo Disco House’. This is disco infused house ranging from 90-120bpm. To the Jackin, Deep has been pushing this funk and jazz infused brand of bumping house for 17 years, its good fun, ‘let your hair down’ groovy stuff.
We could go on but perhaps best is to follow and listen to upcoming live recordings.
