Love Handle – Toronto – September 20 2014


We’ve been planning this one for months folks! Love Handle proudly presents one of the Aces in the Los Angeles funk scene, U-Ome Eddy Funkster.

Eddy has been listening to boogie funk since he was a kid growing up in the 80’s. “My mom would always have the R & B station on when going to school, so I got a lot of oldies and The Whispers “Rock Steady””. Eddy was also an avid popper in the 90’s learning from the Electric Boogaloos and other masters of street dancing. “Understanding popping, you have to understand funk music”. This was when he started to collect records, a passion that he still follows to this day. In the 2000’s he linked up with Dam Funk and the Funkmosphere crew in Los Angeles to hold down thelegendary Funkmosphere night. This night is known to be one of the most world renowned nights for 80’s funk music, more commonly known as “Boogie” these days. Recently, Eddy met XL Middleton by chance and the two began producing and crafting their version of Boogie, with more of a Southern Californian feel. They just recently started the Mofunk Records label to release their own material and material from artists they feel needs to be heard world wide. The smash hit “Press Play”, with Zackey Force Funk on vocals, has been a prime example of what to expect from the man. With releases coming out on his own Mofunk imprint, Voltaire Records out of San Francisco, and Hit and Run out of Los Angeles, the future is looking bright for Eddy Funkster

Dust of those dancing shoes cause this one’s gonna be a burner – Love Handle keeps on funkin ya!
