Lost in Michael Jackson’s woodland estate young Will Williamson was a happy soul, breast

fed and reared by a family of disco Llamas, he’d canter hither and tither to his heart’s

content, chewing on the lush grass and shrubs planted way back in the Motown days.

Until the day the bulldozers arrived to clear the estate and mine the fabled Tree

of Soul. Outraged, the Llamas quickly militarised and Will found himself

leading the Llama army against the machines. Sadly for Will and the Llamas,

they were trained in combat by Bubbles, Michael Jackson’s favourite monkey

and could only offer thrown semen and faeces against their metal foe and it

was over as soon as it began. But as is the way with super heroes, Will didn’t

die. He was spirited away and placed in a montage, where over the years he

grew strong, running along beaches and up and down steps to Bill Conti’s

Theme from Rocky.

Ladies and Gentlemen. Father Funk is here! The legend is born!

His formula for dance floor destruction includes energetic DJ sets and productions

crammed with big bass, big beats and the biggest, funkiest samples sucked from the green

sweetness of his youthful Llama days. He’s supported some of the biggest names in Breaks and

Ghetto Funk and topped the Juno Breakbeat charts–also crashing his way onto the Juno Best of 2013 reggae chart with his remix of Cedar Seniors “Funk I’m Kickin”.

Harnessing all his production skills he spent 2013 blowing the back doors off the festival circuit with appearances at Sunrise, Beatherder, Solfest and Kendal Calling.

2014 has seen Father Funk release his debut EP on Ghetto Funk to widespread acclaim

and once again topping the Juno Breakbeat charts.

Raised by Llamas in the garden of funk and soul, attacked by machines, taught by monkeys,

a Rocky montage and he’s still only 20 years old!

Father Funk is a superhero. Big with the bass and big with the beats, he’s one of the Ghetto

Funk scene’s sharpest up and coming talents.
