Funk Yeah! FM presents Brownie (Minneapolis – Sho Nuf Fresh Force Crew) – 10/30/2011
Coming up Sunday, Oct. 30th on Funk Yeah! FM we are back with more live action and special local guest DJ from Minneapolis… Brownie!!
THIS IS AN ONLINE RADIO SHOW. CATCH IT ON YOUR COMPUTER OR SMART PHONE:
Instantly influenced by DJ’s such as Terminator X of Public Enemy, Eric B., Jazzy-Jay of Soul Sonic Force and Grandmaster DXT. Started doing house parties playing mostly top 40 and hip hop off of a Radio Shack mixer and a couple CD players. When I got to high school I started doing most of the dances. During that time I opened up to classic rock, punk, modern rock, trip hop and a small amount of electronic dance music (EDM).
After high school I went to college for a year and got kicked out, because I wanted to pursue a career in Stupid Behavior (use your imagination). I went back to doing house parties and occasional high school dances. When I finally got over myself I went back to school and picked up a part-time job DJ’n for a promotional event company. This allowed me to travel and DJ in cities like Milwaukee, Chicago, Indianapolis, Mesa, Albuquerque, Dallas, Houston, Galveston Island, South Padre Island, San Diego, Salt Lake City, …..Sioux Falls……seriously, and of course Minneapolis. At this time I was still spinning top 40 with a little bit of the popular dance music tracks. It wasn’t until 2000 that I switched my style as a DJ. I was so sick of getting a crowd off with music they knew (or are told to like by radio and Mtv) and figured it to be a truly challenging, but also a satisfying feeling, to get people off with music they’re not too familiar with.
I was easily influenced by DJ’s such as Richard Humpty Vission and Bad Boy Bill. Once I started to get a little more educated about the different styles and genres of EDM, I found myself being more involved with house music. I learned about the roots of house and learned about the pioneers like Ron Hardy and Farley Jackmaster Funk. I also learned what the first parties were like in the Southside of Chi and most importantly what makes the music tick. Fast-forward to now and I’m still spinning house music. Today my style has become a lot more refined and influences have gone from RHV and BBB to Mark Farina, DJ Heather, The Littlemen, Sound Republic, Johnny Fiasco, Miguel Migs, Matt Shrewd, Sonny Fodera, Derrick Carter, Da Sunlounge, Inland Knights, etc.

Coming up this Sunday, Jack, and his friend Funk return to Funk Yeah! FM with a special local guest DJ from Minneapolis… DJ XEL
Join us this Sunday as we celebrate America’s independence a little early by streaming us online or on your smart phone on Chicago House FM from 6pm – 8pm CST (11pm – 1am GMT)
DJ XEL is no stranger to electronic dance culture. This native Chicagoan started mixing old-skool funk and soul records at the age of 14, after attending his first high school dance. During the early years, DJ XEL would record mixes of the legendary Hot Mix 5, and study them to hone his mixing skills.
27 years later, DJ XEL is still rockin the Wheels of steel, spinning deep soulful house, jacking house, acid jazz and everything in between, finding creative ways to bring music and people together. After a recent relocation to Minneapolis, DJ XEL has teamed up with Richy Rivera, to play together under the name Deep Grooves, as well as throwing parties under the name SideStream Productions. You can find them playing around the Twin Cities at venues such as Darby’s, Honey, and various one off events. The next step for DJ XEL is to head into the studio and begin working on his own productions, so stay tuned.
…..May the FUNK be with you.
Coming up this Sunday, get down and get funky with KyleWyld LIVE in the Funk Yeah! FM studio.
Residing in Minneapolis, MN, Kyle’s musical roots go back to the mid-nineties and hip hop, but after hearing a Terry Mullan mixtape in 1997, he kicked hip hop to the curb, and fell in love with house. With over a decade of immersion in Minneapolis dance music, his passion for house runs deep, with sets that are raw, funky, and soulful, often with a dose of the true Chicago sound. As part of Nu Paradigm, he helped to provide a diverse showcase of local artists, with emphasis on an edgy, underground sound. Kyle’s only goal as a DJ is to rock the fucking party. His sets are serious business. Believe it.
Come catch the live action at chicagohousefm.co.uk from 6pm – 8pm CST!

The next airing of Funk Yeah! FM w/ J Matthews coming up Sunday, Sept 26th! J Matthews has a very special treat to keep things going with a guest mix and interview with Jonn Hawley (Milwaulkee, WI, USA – OM Records, Large Records, Organized Crime).
Just recently, Jonn Hawley came into Minneapolis, MN for the HotDish monthly at First Avenue Nightclub and tore the roof off! Both Jonn and Lee Jarvis (London, UK) played for HotDish, who is hosted by Nate Laurence and J Matthews. It was a riot all night with the celebration of HotDish’s first year of success. They had T Shirts for sale, free giveaways, and of course, two great DJs/producers playing to a massive crowd in the intimacy of The Record Room.
Check that night out more at the HotDish Facebook page.
