Mr. Fudge

    When his beats hit the floor, the flow is always funky and chunky killer break beats - any tempo every style. MR FUDGE Canadian born breakbeat dj and producer is intense, energetic, and versatile in each solid set that he delivers. Having held residencies in Canada since 1997 and South Korea since 2002, he is now currently based in Canada, spinning for Fromthefeetup, Catalogue, Rapture, Pro Plus Productions, Groove Pusher and Roots Forward Records. MR FUDGE has always been heavily influenced by a variety of electronic music: from hip-hop, trip-hop, midtempo funk and big beat, to the more current sounds of funky tech house, nu disco, ghetto funk, bass heavy breaks and dnb. After playing numerous club nights and parties across Canada, it was in 2002 that he became interested in the production aspect of electronic music. 2002 was the big move to Asia, not only to challenge him to gain international recognition, but to also push his production work and to develop a sound that best encompasses his energy and intensity behind the decks. Hard Funk best describes his production work, as well as his live sets. Signed to the Manmade Recordings Label based out of the United Kingdom, this veteran dj hammers out ultra fat breaks for every killer set that he smashes. Blackbelt Break-Fu is now in session!
