Charles Chambers has been making house trax as DJ Funk since the old school days of Chicago's Underground Construction, Pro-Jex, Funk, or Dance Mania record labels, ushering in the newer, faster, and much more raw style of ghetto house in the mid-90s-- legend has it, he even coined the term "ghetto house."
Now, DJ Funk is back with a new EP, Work Dat Body, on his own Booty Call Records with support from Diplo, Crookers, Sinden, and many others. The samples of the EP's three tracks, available for stream below, highlight the raunchy and raucous hardcore chant n' bass style that Funk is known for in old classics like "Pussy Ride."
Work Dat Body is out now on Booty Call Records. Watch this interview with DJ Funk for great pieces of wisdom like "the ghetto style is relevant everywhere" and "you can't fake the funk." There's also this sweet documentary on electronic music, Modulations, that he was interviewed as a part of.
