Lineup and Details for Positive Education presents Funk D'Void on Sat 7th July 2012
Positive Education here at Joshua Brooks will be joined by yet another legend of the house music scene Funk DVoid. Lars Sandberg AKA Funk D'Void, is a DJ and producer who has been at the forefront of the global electronic music scene since the mid-90s. He started Djing at around the tender age of 15, running two under-18 clubs himself a perfect start to his career. Knowing his vocation to music from an early age after being brought up by his professional pianist mother, Lars never had any doubt as to where his future would lie.
House music changed his life, the early Chicago sound specifically, and hearing the certain sounds during his childhood stirred something inside him; the 808 drum machine used on Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing secured his fascination with these electronic sounds the turning point over to the Detroit techno sound was almost a spiritual moment as it forged his unique sound that would follow over the coming years visceral, soulful and without compromise.
After a string of hits over the years (Jack Me Off, Bad Coffee Emotional Content) plus some killer remixes for the likes of Underworld, New Order and Kevin Saunderson, he is probably best known for the end-of-nighter 'Diabla' which bridged house and techno (and was flogged by everyone from Danny Howells to Sven Vath). And if you look carefully youll also spy the name L. Sandberg in the liner notes of releases by deep house producer Francois Dubois, whose Blood and I Try were huge underground hits of 2006 and 2007 respectively.
Collaborations with such luminaries as Phil Kieran and more recently Sian have produced stellar results - further galvanising his diversity in the techno arena and has led us to the somewhat overdue arrival of his own personal label, Outpost. Much in demand DJ and critically acclaimed producer, his Djing style is everything you expect a true music lovers taste to be: he is comfortable and adept at moving any dancefloor, the proof being that he is one of the busiest Djs on the circuit today, and has been for the last decade. You only have to ask todays heroes and legends what they think of the talented Scotsman:
Back up by residents 3 Deep Djs & Universal Solution, plus some of the very best in local talent that Manchester has to offer.
