The cosmic grooves of Falcon Punch are steepedin no particular musical tradition, but rather in a multi-genre background ranging from soul and funk to house and disco. Establishing himself on the scene throughout a successful 2010, producer and DJ Avery Henderson (a.k.a. Falcon Punch) began his foray into the edit-disco/indie-electronic scene with his first single "Where You'll Stay," which since its release has reached the top 10 on the Hype Machine's Popular Chart, enjoyed frequent radio play in New Zealand and Ireland alongside the likes of Ray Mang and LNTG, and has
appeared on countless American and European electronic music blogs.
Since then he has collaborated with Dutch Duo Keljet to produce the single "Saturday Night," which, like "Where You'll Stay," became a staple of the nu-disco blogosphere. More recently, Falcon Punch has put out remixes of Bobby McFerrin's "Thinkin' About Your Body," and Cutty Gold's "Meaning of Love," as well as a slew of critically acclaimed mixes.
But perhaps most notably, Falcon Punch has recently teamed up with L.A. based producer and close friend, Roller Radio, to put out "I Might Be Gone" and "Never Enough." The latter of which exploded in the edit-disco scene being claimed as one of the breakout hits of the summer of 2013.
Another slew of releases and collaborations are slated to be released throughout the remainder of summer and fall.
Playing live throughout the US alongside the likes of Juan Maclean, Orchard Lounge, Good Night Keaton and Penguin Prison, Falcon Punch's live sets have gained a reputation for their funky progressions and loyal adherence to the true roots of the disco jam.
