The Funk Hunters are one of Canada’s busiest electronic acts. Performing their signature high-energy DJ sets and groundbreaking audio-visual show at some of the world’s most popular music festivals and clubs has earned them an international following. The duo (Dunks & The Outlier) first teamed up because of a mutual love for “hunting” good music, and today this passion still rings true as they continue to champion the simple but often lost idea that the music itself comes first, regardless of attachments to genre. The Funk Hunters are now in high demand, receiving bookings, accolades, and remix requests from all corners of the electronic music scene.
Armed with four turntables, their very own custom-synched visuals, and the unique ability to create live mashups and remixes, their live show stands out. Seamlessly blending original productions with everything from Hip Hop to House, Glitch Hop to Drum & Bass, and everything funky in between, The Funk Hunters create original sets never replicated. Refusing to be confined by genres, it’s not uncommon to find this duo headlining an all-bass music festival one night and then performing a funk, soul, or boogie set the next. Their new audio-visual show continues to see them push boundaries, merging their skills as music producers, visual artists, and DJs into a truly unique live experience. By producing their own custom content, they’ve managed to avoid the stigma associated with "music-video DJs," yet still preserve their improvised multi-genre-style DJ performance – only now they’re equipped with synched visuals, controlled straight from the turntables.
