Funk Sinatra


Read the Funk Sinatra Interview below and share it on social media.


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


Hi, my name is Eyal Goldman AKA Funk Sinatra, 40 year old DJ/Producer from Tel Aviv. But that title is quite too simple – I started out as a drummer in various musical genres, from Punk and Metal to Jazz and indie, way back as a kid in the early 90's. Someday when I was 16, A cheeky salesman sold me a drum machine instead of a metronome (Alesis HR16B, which I still own), and that crossed with hearing "Ventolin" by Aphex Twin got me to where I am today… Of course, I also collected music since I was 5 years old, so a mix between crate digging, sampling them, rocking the crowd etc got me to where I am today – Producing my own music, creating edits for forgotten classics,Teaching at a music academy called BPM, Creating musical visions for various business ventures and some time I sleep
My Biggest track in 2017 was "Mifgash", in genre I call "Global Techno"

Mifgash was #1 at hypeedit techo chart, And got massive support from Acid Arab


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


Wow! Going from listening to Megadeth to Sonic Youth, To the Beastie Boys, Miles Davis, Gong, Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk, Sun Ra' I can say it is a very long and rewarding trip…Some influences are timeless – Depeche Mode, Stevie Wonder, Jeff Mills, Isaac Hayes, This recent decade is all about world music – From Fela Kuti and Mor Thiam to Mulatu, Serge Gainsbourg and Selda.
I basically listen to anything, As long as it got good production value, so any genre of music is viable to me.


What´s new right now?


I'm currently working on a live set up made only from real instruments like Korg Volcas, XOX, and various outboard effects, going back full circle after almost two decades in front of a computer. My aim is alive acid\techno\dub fusion, with the machines running and me drumming on top of that.
Another new thing is "Mansion Hill", A soundtrack I composed for the films I see when I dream
