Biography

4ONEFUNK

Traditional musicianship meets futuristic techniques, creating a fresh sound.

4onefunk has paved their way in the US, Europe, South America, and Asia. With growing respect in the hip-hop dj genre, they have also gained a place in the jazz community through their live application of melodic and tonal principals on a truly modern instrument: the turntable.

Originating from the San Francisco Bay Area, this group formed in 2002. Members B-Cause, Mista B, Max Kane, and Teeko have released award winning mix tapes such as the ingenious Super Disco Hyphy by B-Cause as well as collaborative mix with Max Kane Night of the Remix. In the days of Scratch DJ competitions, they won numerous local, national, and world championship awards. Teeko’s debut album My SoundStation gained #1 on the CMJ chart and is also recipient of the Innovative Producers award from Berklee College of Music in 2006.

Collaborative projects with live musicians and turntabalists such as The 4OneFunk Band and The Dollar Bin Quintet are unique and progressive.

Players involved include Monophonics' Colin Brown [keys], Austin Bohlman [drums], and Ian McDonald [guitar]. Also Alphabet Soup's Kenny Brooks [sax], and Jay Lane [Drums] as well as Adam Theiss [trombone, bass], Pat Korty [drums] and members of the Jazz Mafia.

2008 will be a big year for 4OneFunk. Their next venture is the introduction of The Vestax Controller One: first turntable engineered to be a musical instrument. Designed by Ricci Rucker, Dstyles, Mike Boo and Teeko, it features pitch changing buttons corresponding to scale degrees and MIDI. Not yet manufactured in the US, it's a formative time for a truly new instrument and 4OneFunk is on the cutting edge, carrying the torch
