ABOUT PHEEKO DUBFUNK
Pheeko Dubfunk has been residing in San Francisco since 2002, he has been dishing out the best funky electro and tribal house tracks from Miami to SF as well as taking his music with him internationally. Before the States, Pheeko lived in Paris and visited nightlife scenes throughout Europe. This gave the talented young DJ an opportunity to become well versed at playing music. It was the works of Aretha Franklin, Delegation, and Alexander O’Neal that filled the ears a budding DJ with funk, reggae and R&B.
At his first US home in West Palm Beach and Miami, Pheeko was further exposed to house music and became a resident DJ at Club Bliss. He also graced the decks at Florida’s hottest destination in South Beach Miami. After moving to San Francisco, Pheeko further had the chance to showcase his trademark silky smooth, dub filled funky house. He quickly acquired coveted residencies at clubs like Ruby Skye, Vessel, Fluid, 1015, Dna Lounge and Harlot as well as respected promoters such as Release (Martel & Nabiel), Mixed Elements, Spundae and Remedy. Pheeko has shared the stage with such global luminaries as Paul Van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, David Guetta, Dubfire, Roger Sanchez, Axwell, Satoshi Tomie, Nic Fanculi, Mark Farina, Bob Sinclar, Miguel Migs, Dimitri From Paris, Kaskade, Mr V, Plastik Funk, Tedd Patterson and more…
The increasing recognition and acclaim of Pheeko’s talent by the industry and house lovers alike, lead to the success of his track “Closer to Me” with Hideo Kobayashi and “Sahara”, which had the honor of gracing the late night mixed cd of the well-renowned group Groove Junkies. “Closer to Me” made it to the top 10 download on beatport in 2006 and was chosen as one of the top secret weapons at the Winter Music Conference in Miami by Swank Recordings.
After his return from his third year at the Winter Music Conference in 2009, Pheeko launched his label Swank Records with great esteem and acceptance from the SF house community. Pheeko released his first Winter EP through this label, and the full album is coming out through Swank Records with great anticipation. Pheeko is currently in search of talented local artists from SF to join the label as well as international producers. Pheeko looks ahead to great partnerships and talents in determination to create the freshest house tracks not just for the people in the industry, but to those who fuel it.
