WHAT IS THE
an idea BORN Out of necessity.
Q&A Justin Easthall, Owner & DJ
So what exactly is THE Electro Phunk SHOW?
Good question! Okay what differentiates us from the typical mobile DJ is a couple of things, first we specialize in a particular sound, that being an eclectic mix of soulful disco & house music. And second we use a high end, four deck rig; two CDJs, a controller and 2 vinyl turntables (we have options for 2 decks too see here for set-ups), allowing me to add my own effects, perform live remixes, create live music, all ‘on the fly’ creating a ‘performance’. We are much more than a human jukebox! Add to this an amazing sound system & light rig, and we can really put on a show for your establishment or party – that’s the ELECTRO PHUNK show.

So how did you come up with this idea?
Out of necessity!
So most people who know me, know I love dance music especially house music and that I used to DJ professionally. Because of this, a friend asked me to find a good house DJ here in South Florida for his wedding. I couldn’t find any mobile DJ that had a true understanding of what house music is (it is not EDM! Or pop music you can dance too). So I ended up doing the gig myself. It was through this experience that got me thinking…
"COULD I SET UP A MOBILE DJ BUSINESS THAT SPECIALIZES IN DISCO & HOUSE MUSIC?"
Right! If you are looking to rent a mobile DJ that specializes in modern dance culture, something that’s a bit more sophisticated when it comes to dance music – before ELECTRO PHUNK there was nothing out there.
It’s great also for people who just love new disco/house music but obligations, location, kids, whatever, make it really difficult to get to a decent club especially here in deep, deep South Florida, this is the perfect solution – we’ll bring the party to you (we’re family friendly too).
Disco music, House music?
Right, basically disco is house music. Disco went underground in the early 1980’s and was reborn as house music. That 4 bar beat, soulful vocals & uplifting, feel good vibe it what we’re all about! As it has matured house now has many, many sub genres, so we play a fusion of soul, jazz, hip hop, disco, latin, freestyle, wrapped into a disco and house groove. It’s not crazy fast techno, techno, boom, boom stuff (unless a booking specifies a harder, faster techno set of course). It’s modern disco-house music for sure, but on the more soulful, spiritual end of the genre. Listen to a live set below to get an idea of the vibes…

What gigs do you typically play?
All kinds, private parties, BBQs, pool parties, weddings, bars, clubs – right up to corporate events & festivals. Our current sound system is good for about 250 people on a dance floor inside, and around 150 outside. If it’s a lounge, restaurant or bar environment then we can customize the step up, music & volume to fit.
