Releases: Debut ‘Bunker EP’ - Okan Records click HERE
Adam Wise - aka Funkwise has been honing his craft as a DJ / Producer behind the scenes for the last decade.
In recent years he has made regular appearances in the UK, Europe, and Asia. Over the past couple of years Funkwise has become a staple of the underground scene in Bali, Indonesia where he resides for most of the year - being offered gigs and residencies at prestigious venues such as Red Ruby, Omnia Dayclub, Hatch, Ulu Cliffhouse, Bali Praia and Vault to name a few, as well as countless impromptu sets at private villa & boat parties, all over the island and Jakarta and Yogyakarta.
Adam is the founder and head honcho of Discofunk, a collective of DJs and pop-up parties/stage takeovers running since 2012, and has played under this umbrella at UK festivals including The Labyrinth at Secret Garden Party, Gottwood, Festival Number 6, Bestival, Aespia Festival (where Discofunk ran a stage 3 years in a row), Standon Calling + more.
Making his European debut at Obonjan Island in Croatia in 2017, summer 2018 saw him journey to Kala Festival in Albania and the legendary Pikes Hotel (Ibiza) alongside his cosmic comrade and partner in running Cue Music Agency/Discofunk - 'Cordz' (The London Disco Society). Adam & Rory now hold Discofunk (arguably the most revered Friday night residency on the island) at South East Asia's most exciting new nightclub Vault in the Bunker, often playing b2b with the crew from 11pm until the last person leaves, often 6/7am.
Funkwise's style infuses deep, percussive & soulful rhythms that cater to everything from brunch time cliff-top groove to headline nightclub sets and marathon after-hours & sunrise sessions in the middle of the jungle. A life-long avid music lover with a background in guitar and piano, the logical step as a resident of the dance floor was to share his tastes and productions from the booth. His sets and versatility have been well received and the future looks exciting.
His debut release 'Bunker EP' came out in September 2019 on Bali Based Label Okan Records. More original music is already on the way, and plans are in the works for a Cue Music record label.
