DJ Funk and Caribou Rock and Talk on Red Bull Radio
- Words: Patric Fallon
Though it may seem on the surface that the dirty, hyperactive ghetto house purveyed by DJ Funk has little to do with the tender, electronic bedroom-pop crafted by Caribou, Red Bull Music Academy Radio has provided a common thread for the disparate artists. Chicago's DJ Funk put together an immediately hard-hitting mix of booty music for the electronic music hub, which you can stream here, and Mr. Dan Snaith contributed to the website's Fireside Chat series. In his feature, amidst songs from past albums and his latest record, Swim, Snaith talks about starting his music career under the name Manitoba, and how that slowly transformed into the identity of Caribou that he uses today. Listen to that enlightening and immersive radio broadcast here.
