2012 has been a continuation in the growth of the Funkatech brand and core artists with Far Too Loud, Specimen A, PYRAMID & Miss Trouble touring and hitting the festivals in all corners of the world from America to Australia, Canada to Brazil and all around Europe. Funkatech have also collaborated with Viper Recordings to hold a massive quarterly residency in one of London’s hottest venues, Cable.

Ferociously independent and with a DIY ethic that has been retained since the inception, Funkatech has grown and developed as a label and an artist management outfit under the leadership and foresight of Asad Raja and Guy Ashley with Asad now taking the reigns solely. What initially began as a bedroom operation run in their spare time simply for “for the love of it”, Funkatech has now grown into a successful business that has become a magnet for the next generation of UK underground music talent.
