A live monthly DJ series at Crosstown Arts
This month: Fùnké (Afro House , Deep House, Broken Beat)
Cost: $5 — Purchase on Eventbrite
Location: The Green Room at Crosstown Arts
The SPINS series will feature music as diverse as the City of Memphis. Each month, a rotating line-up of DJs will play everything from old-school Hip-Hop and House to Ultra Lounge and Afrobeat. There’s something for everyone to enjoy. So, come chill. Come hang. Come Party!
Conjuring from the watery crossroads of the Mississippi and Wolf River, Fùnké blends a hypnotic brew of Ancestral, Deep, Mzansi, Kuduro, Soulful, Minimal House, and Broken Beat. Fùnké sees the dance floor as a sacred container that holds everything from our joys to our woes and uses the healing power of music as a vehicle to move out of our minds and in our spirits.
Fùnké’s talent has landed her at events such as The Atlanta Weekender, Detroit Movement, Art Basel, Excursions, Funkboxx, Afrique Electrique and more. Fùnké has made waves alongside Tony Touch, Brian Coxx, Bradford James, Salah Ananse, Rahaan, Marcus Vogel, Recloose, Carlos Mena, Bassnectar, Applejac, DJ Minx, Cordell Johnson, King Britt, Earl “Mixxin” McKinney, Rich Medina, SHYBOI, Sabine Blaizin, Grupo Fantasma, Sierra Leone Refugee Allstars and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80.
