Following the 8th annual Rip Curl Pro Tofino surfing championships, Canadian electronic music giants, The Funk Hunters, take the stage for the Official After Party presented by Betty and Kora Productions and Monster Energy.
The first half of 2014 has been busy for The Funk Hunters beginning with their Australian and New Zealand festival tour in early 2014. Recently, members Nick Middleton and Duncan Smith, played to a sold out crowd at the iconic Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver B.C. followed by a sold out tour of Western Canada. The duo is coming to Tofino during one of their last stops before The Funk Hunters summer 2014 festival tour of North America.
Armed with 4-turntables, their very own custom synched visuals, and the unique ability to create live mashups and remixes, they seamlessly blend original productions with everything from Hip Hop to House, Glitch Hop to Drum & Bass, and everything funky in between. Most recently the duo has been found touring festivals alongside their live Saxophone and Guitar players, truly transforming their performance into a LIVE Audio & Visual spectacle. They also continue to release chart topping music on labels around the globe as well as manage two of their own labels, Westwood Recordings, and ReSoul Records.
