The Forty Five Kings Collective Present Dj Blue Funk!!!

30 May 2024

I am super proud to present the first Member Mix by Dj Blue Funk, who has this to say about his mix:

My name is Chris & I DJ under the name Blue Funk.

I started DJing and record collecting 11 years ago while living in Japan. I moved to the US shortly after and have been active in the DJ scene in Minneapolis, MN guesting at funk soul 45 focused party Hipshaker and co-founding monthly rare groove party The Nitty Gritty.

This mix showcases records I found around Minneapolis, a few choice cuts from local label Secret Stash, recent favorites and records I found while digging in Japan & NYC. Of particular note is a recent find “Standing In The Rain Again” by Megaton with an insane b-boy break that I found at a vintage shop in town, I had to check out this white label 6 minute curio and was not disappointed.

If you’re ever in Minnesota get in touch, I’d love to go digging or DJ together!”

We loved the mix and if you do to, shares, reposts, comments and likes are most welcome.
