FlexdeFunk (N Beers) completed his first full studio in 2004. Within a year he released "Just Arriving" a two-disc compilation created for private release only (released in July 2005). The double-disc release included 28 tracks with genres ranging from House, Breaks and Trip Hop.
From there Flex decided to release singles on various international labels. In 2007 Flex signed to Gene Poole Music (Germany) for his 1st vinyl/mp3 release. It was welcomed into the breaks community, charting on over 4 breakbeat charts within a week. Soon after FlexdeFunk signed onto Egypt's Purple Edge Records, the UK's New Era Recordings, Shiva Records, Moxi Records, Canada's JG Records, & the U.S.A.'s Tocayo Music
Since then Flex has focused on House production and recording the FlexdeFunk DJ Project. This is a massive project to celebrate '10 years of mixing' for FlexdeFunk. The project includes OVER 20 MIXES of hand-picked tracks that Flex has collected over the last 7 years....the best of the best. Genre's will include - Funky House, Electro, Breaks, Funk & Trip Hop/Downtempo blends. The FlexdeFunk will be completed by the fall of 2013 and sets posted (for free download) as they are recorded. All DJ sets available on flexdefunk.com and www.soundcloud.com/flexdefunk
FlexdeFunk also held a residency @ Yorkville's Famous "Y NOT LOUNGE" every Saturday night for 2 years (10pm-3am, 2008-2009) with music ranging from Funk, Breaks, Funky House, Tech House, Electro and Tribal House. It was always a packed venue and FlexdeFunk was able to change the average "top 40's music fan" into a House music fan by the end of each night.

*UPDATE: FlexdeFunk ended production and DJ sets in the summer of 2013. The conclusion was reached for several reasons including the general direction of the electronic music scene, the "Funk" genre losing popularity and the fact that there are many funk themed DJ's and producers still abundant to keep the genre alive (check artists like The Basement Freaks, The Funk Hunters, DJ Slynk, Funkanomics, Stickybuds, Featurecast, A-Skillz, DJ Czech, DJ Dan, Ski Tour, Krafty Kuts, Trotter, Sonny Fodera) and Flex moving onto other goals in life including the current task of writing a book on food & health (named "Food Deception") which should be out by 2017.
Flex thanks all for the support received over the years from around the world over the last decade. Flex will still update soundcloud with some of the best Funk-themed artists around so feel free to keep updated on the latest by checking this page (see playlists).
