Woody
 
Woody is the original sonic funkateer whose life is completely focused on music and his very own definition of FUNK. He’s a genuine kind of a guy, needing nothing more than two turntables, a mixer and an audience to know he’s alive. For him DJing and making music is not just a job, it's his destiny. Rewind back to the mid-80's when Woody started off in Munich's graffiti and breakdance scene. Already a superb breakdancer, he soon became an even better DJ. Woody played his first gigs in Munich`s famous "Babalu Club". Thanks to his God-given talent and hard work, Woody was soon getting booked into the techno clubs of Berlin, Cologne and Frankfurt. In 1992 Woody took the chance to become Resident DJ in Berlin’s best and most influential club concept "Planet", which later became the world-famous "E-Werk". Woody's star rose to unbelievable heights as he completely controlled the crowd. His music brought this remarkable venue to life and his cross-pollenation style from deep pumping techno & smokin` house to electrofunk and several oldschool classics was a blueprint for numerous DJs who heard and saw Woody play. He rocked the house and laid the foundation for Berlin`s nightlife fame, playing a key role in the genesis of Berlin`s own club sound. Since then Woody has become one of Germany’s most respected DJs. Woody has travelled all over continental Europe (including the east), Scandinavia, USA, Central America, Israel, Asia like Japan and Thailand to spin in virtually every (good) club, showing off his unique track selection and brilliant DJ skills. Other remarkable highlights of Woody`s thrilling DJ career are his annual appearences at the Love Parade finale with over 1,5 Million people in Berlin. On his home patch, Woody always likes to run his own club nights where the guest program is decided by him, as well as supervising the visual aspect, which is an important element of the nightlife experience: perfect music and special visuals! His earlier residency in Berlin was his monthly “Klub Berlin”, where he already invited international guests. Actually he's regularly playing at the Watergate and organise his own Sunday Open Air After hour Party named Electronic Waves, where most respected DJs and Live Acts played so far. Like Ricardo Villalobos, Guido Schneider, Matt John, My My, Efdemin, Ben Klock, the Fumakilla Family and many more… Woody is also the man behind the extremely successful Fumakilla Label which he launched in 2000 after he finished the production of his first tracks. Its aim is to become a homebase for lots of upcoming producers and the definition of modern clubfunk. Due to the fact that his first ever remix (Woody vs. Kissogramm "If I had known this before") directly entered the German charts, he`s now one of the most sought after remixers in Germany. In 2002 he remixed the likes of Felix da Housecat and 2-Raumwohnung. His Tracks and Remixes played by key players like Carl Craig, Josh Wink, Laurent Garnier, Derrick May, Sven Väth, Ricardo Villalobos and many more. His first album “Selected Works 2002-2006” released 2008 is deep and a good balance between old and new school. There you can find fresh and modern sounds but also a retrospection of his work. His production combines quality undergroud music with a strong international appeal and the potential to attract a bigger audience. You can hear the influences of Chicago Jack-House, Detroit Techno and his B-Boy definition of sound. In every single track you can trace Woody’s talent for minimal changes in the melody which catch just about every crowd. If you need to give it a name, file under FUMAKILLA FUNK.
