Being a child from a mixed marriage, Funkstar has allways been influenced by a great variety of music styles. At age 5 he was sure he wanted to be a conductor for a classical Orchestra and picked up the violin. After a few years of fiddlin' he decided this wasn't his instrument and started taking drum lessons. Funk being has favorite genre to bang the drums to, he chose the name Funkstar as his alter ego, even before he was a DJ. He also is very good on keys and guitars.
In school he discovered hit talent for the decks on schoolparties. He loved entertaining people and he loved collecting music and this was where these two ambitions came together. But it wasn't untill his early twenties when he decided to take up Deejaying more seriously. This happened when he moved to the big city when he started his Architecture studies. Here he was influenced by famous deejays like Chuckie and Real El Canario, and this inspired him to work hard.
Now just two years after the start of his career, Funkstar has shared the stage with dj's like: Hardwell, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Real El Canario, The Partysquad, Sandy Riviera, Rene Amesz, Sidney Samson, MBA, Waxfiend; has warmed up the stage for artists like Rick Ross, Juelz Santana & Dipset, toured with Lil Wayne & Birdman and spinned in countries like Belgium, Germany and Norway!
