London, United Kingdom
Optimus Funk aka Adrian Burton is a London-based DJ, digger and former street dancer who breathes funk, disco, and jazz. His background in street dance is evident in the way he moves between styles and eras. From Disco and Breaks, to Boogie and Modern Funk and even the odd retro video game music reference, he glides effortlessly between genre staples and hidden gems alike.
Having been known as one of the movers and shakers in London’s thriving dance scene over the years, it should be a divine transition for the man himself to bring the boogie from the floor and into the booth as one of the capital's finest selectors and collectors of feel-good funk related rhythms. Often with a crew of dancer mates in tow, you’ll never find the dance floor with their backs up against the wall.
