Funkelastiks is a true Chicago house music globetrotter and originates from Ghent, Belgium (EU), one of the hippest and most creative cities of music on this planet.
He made his debut as a dj in 1986, mixing funk jazz and pop rock records in Ghent's legendary "Coconut Club". Bands like Queen, Madness, Straycats, Grand Master Flash, and The Police ruled the radio frequencies and clubs owned proper record collections, not deejays. New genres like Acid-house and New-beat became huge and megadancings like the "Boccaccio" in the outskirts of Ghent attracted thousands of international crowds for this new style of electronic music. Funkelastiks is part of the first generation of Belgian electronic artists and evidentially shared the turntables with fellow Ghent pals 2Manydj's Dewaele Brothers and the Glimmer Twins.
In the early nineties, he moved to Ibiza to perform at after-parties during the summer of 1993 and also had several dj stints in the Caribbean ihttp://www.funkelastiks.com/
