The Funk Hunters

    In a sea of carbon-copy producers, The Funk Hunters have cultivated their signature
    sound by creating forward-thinking electronic music that is influenced by old school
    funk, soul and hip-hop.

    As longtime friends, collaborators, and multi-dimensional artists, Nick Middleton and
    Duncan Smith’s chemistry is perfectly aligned. Middleton steers the band’s studio
    efforts, having produced, co-written, and mixed their debut album, TYPECAST. And
    Smith anchors the project’s live show with an indefatigable charisma that
    compliments Middleton’s thoughtful production. Together they combine their powers
    as DJs, resulting in a brilliant technical display of creative collaboration between 4
    turntables.

    Their vision has resonated with both listeners and industry tastemakers alike, with
    their music amassing over 10 million track streams across their catalog of original
    productions, remixes and collaborations. Winners of the Electronic/Dance Artist of
    the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, The Funk Hunters also reached #1
    on the Billboard Dance Club Chart last year, with an official remix of U2’s “Love Is
    Bigger.” Their catalog also includes other official remixes for Big Gigantic, Gramatik,
    Selena Gomez, and Imagine Dragons.

    In addition to studio work, The Funk Hunters enjoy a vibrant global touring career
    with major festival plays at Coachella, Life Is Beautiful, Lightning in a Bottle, Electric
    Forest, Osheaga, Outside Lands, Burning Man, and Shambhala. They consistently
    play to the biggest dance floors in the world – frequent collaborator Chali 2na of
    Jurassic 5 fame has called them “the selectah’s of the century.”
