Farley "Jackmaster" Funk
b. Jan 25, 1962 in Chicago, IL
DJ and producer. First made his name broadcasting on Chicago's WBMX-FM as a member of the Hot Mix 5 DJ team. Farley also appeared at the Warehouse club and then began a residency at the Playground.
Known as Farley Keith or Farley Funkin' Keith until 1984. He then adopted the name Farley "Jackmaster" Funk and together with Jesse Saunders, created the first house single to reach the UK charts. His anthem Love Can't Turn Around (cover of Isaac Hayes' I Can't Turn Around) made the Top Ten in mid-1986.
By the late '80s, he had lost his DJ residency. His recorded output during the '90s was relatively small, preferring to concentrate on performing on the global DJ circuit.
DJ and producer from US.
Gene Hunt's first release was on the infamous TRAX imprint and he swiftly followed it up with a string of tracks that were personified by a strong influence from Detroit. Deep strings mixed with intricate drum patterns were his trademark and his Melodies EP for Nepenta was one of the labels first hits. A Chicago house music pioneer, and World Class deejay, Gene has collaborated with a range of critically-acclaimed artists and producers, including Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch, Carl Cox, Paul Johnson, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Frankie Knuckles, and Ron Hardy. A key contributor who helped shape house and techno music worldwide, Gene is no doubt a true innovator of the Chicago house sound.
