Private Funktion – You’re invited… to the 1st birthday celebrations!

With special guest:

DJ Dick ‘Majik’ Johnson – Paper Recordings

Greetings all you trendsetters! Its hard to believe that its been over a year now since the Private Funktion starship completed her maiden flight. During these 12 months the P-Funk brand has formed 6 sensational episodes presenting some of the South Pacific’s finest electrical talents like Tiny People, Sam Fraser, Ben Wah, Andrew Innes and Philippa.

We hope that you have all enjoyed them as much as we have, its been quite a ride.

So, without further a due, its time to buckle in for her 1st birthday extravaganza! You are invited!

Climbing aboard for the birthday edition we welcome Mr. Dick ‘Majik’ Johnson to the flight deck. Dick is a house music heavyweight on both world hemispheres, after starting out in the acid house madness of Manchester’s Hacienda amoung many legendary residencies, he has had involvement with some of the worlds biggest labels including Shaboom and Paper Recordings. For lifestyle reasons he spends much of his current time producing out of his Auckland studio – and loves venturing south for the Wellington crowds.

…Alongside will be the solid house and funk sounds of your trusty resident DJ Tapan and Wellingtons own, long time fellow crony and tech house ambassador DJ Filter. The Sandwiches residents will be keeping it fresh in the lounge bar. That’s Private Funktion’s 1st Birthday – Only $10 on the door - You’re Invited!

Coming soon ...
