WEFUNK SHOW #800 is now online!!! Didn’t think the day would come but it finally did. It’s a fantastic journey and people have shown sooo much love and support in ways we can’t even imagine…. This anniversary show is dedicated to YOU!!
In this extended 2.5 hour special we dig a little deeper into why we do what we do and break down our influences as DJs and radio hosts. You’ll also hear shoutouts from our extended WEFUNK family around the world!!
WEFUNK is a weekly radio mix-show. DJ Static and Professor Groove began broadcasting WEFUNK to Montreal in 1996. Early in 1999 WEFUNK began webcasting and archiving their shows online, and the world got their taste of the WEFUNK sound. iTunes started syndicating their radio stream in 2001, giving WEFUNK a lot more worldwide exposure. Since then they’ve been doin’ their thing, searching out new grooves to make you move, recording hundreds more weekly shows and building up the website. Montreal’s bumpin’ WEFUNK every Friday night on CKUT, and you can catch the 24/7 on wefunkradio.
WEFUNK celebrates a lineage of powerful, inspired music. The roots of soul, funk and rapping go back way further than the 70s, but something special began when James Brown gave the drummer some, Larry Graham hit the bass harder, Kool Herc gave the dancers breaks, DJ Hollywood worked the mic… and musicians worldwide found the funk seeping through their walls and into their music. Strong music gave a strong foundation to speak on social problems, relationships, politics and living conditions. And it made one hell of a party groove. Funk gave birth to hip-hop, and as the past grew into the present funk and hip-hop touched every modern music, leaving their mark—a swagger, a groove, mo’ bounce… and something to twist your face and nod your head to. You know it when you hear it. And they play it on WEFUNK. Catch WEFUNK Fridays midnight-2:00am every week.
