funkfrankie / FuNk’n’StOmP


Read the funkfrankie / FuNk’n’StOmP Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is Paul Franklin and I am a D.J. from the southwest of England. I play individually as Funkfrankie, and as a duo, with my long term friend Lee Stamp as FuNknStoMP. We play a mix of bassline driven upfront house, tech house and oldschool house, anything that gets hands in the air! Both of us have been plying our trade around the clubs, parties and festivals of the southwest for 20+ years. Our local scene is a vibrant one with loads of top promoters putting on wicked nights and festivals such as :- Shuffle, Love Summer festival, Sat In A Field Festival, Wesmile, Housenation, Yarty Party Festival, Recharged and many more.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


Our influences come from the early days of rave culture with djs such as Sy, Ellis DEE, Easygroove, Ratty and then as house gained momentum and popularity guys such as Sasha, Jon Digweed, Nick Warren, Carl Cox, Tony di Vit were killing it on dancefloors everywhere. Then there were the local heroes such as the Sketch crew, Jimee, Kidder, Dom, Jeanie and the lazy house crew, Spiral Tribe, Circus Warp putting on illegal parties in the countryside. Labels such as Hard Hands, Guerilla, Tidy Trax, Suburban Base, Noom, Moving Shadow, U.F.G. Uglybug shaped our early sounds and we have adapted to whatever the current bangers are coming out on labels such as Daylight Robbery, Criminal Hype, Country Club Disco and Hot Creations amongst others.


What´s new right now?


We have gigs coming in all the time for 2018 through our residency at Shuffle, who are currently putting on mind blowing events in Weston-Super-Mare featuring the likes of Sam Divine, Rich Pinder, DJOKO, Gordon John, The Shuffle Brothers and more. Also we will be appearing at many festivals and club nights across the southwest, keep an eye on our social media profiles for more info. Our soundcloud pages are very active with new mixes and gig info being added all the time.
