there's never a dull moment with funkosis on the decks as he mixes up a vast array of tracks including motown, funk & soul classics, 70s disco, 80s retro, funky house, deep tech house, electro & breaks while dancing and bouncing about to the beats he enjoys.

"Castles In The Sky" was featured on the Unearthed home page and climbed to number 2 nationally on the electronic music charts. "After Sex" also did well peaking at number 4 and "Vital Stats" peaked in 8th place.
funkosis has also collaborated with Blistik (Dan Bish) in the Indaba Music "Music Instict" remix competition in which they received an Honourable Mention for their track. check the link:
there's no doubt that it's a difficult task to define the style of funkosis, with influences absorbed from a vast array of diverse music styles and genres.
the beat is critical, mostly bangin' and always laced with a multitude of weird wonderful instrumentals and edgy sketchy fx and samples.
