Circle of Funk have their roots firmly in Bristol, the music capital of the UK’s South West – all four members, Lee Robinson, Paul Stephenson, Andy Caulfield and Daniel Ankrah all hail from there. Lee and Paul met at College and formed “The Cutz”, which soon became one of Bristol’s most prestigious Hip Hop shows, featuring as guests on Radio One’s Tim Westwood show. In 1998 they formed a DJ duo called Culture Shock, making a name for themselves in South London gaining a strong following. In 2000, Andy Caulfield joined them, then later connecting with Daniel Ankrah a.k.a. Blackjack and Circle Of Funk was born. They set up their own label Slapped Up Soul label in 2010 with the first single ‘Games’ ft Mandy Senior. They have worked with artists including Natasha Watts, Lifford Shillingford, Dawn Tallman, Frances Mary and Charlene Samms, among many, and recently with their collaboration with Robert Owens on ‘Invisible’. Circle of Funk continue to cement their reputation and are currently receiving great support from the world’s house music fraternity, including Josh Milan, Phil Asher, Jon Cutler, Boddhi Satva, Andy Ward and CJ Mackintosh to name a few. They promise some exciting releases in the pipeline including Mr V, and another project with Wipe The Needle, as well as working on Nu Soul, Downtempo and Electronica productions. There is always an element of surprise in their work, which they hope will keep their music intriguing. Look out for much more to come, and a bright and bold future as Circle of Funk continue to move forward, bringing innovation, vibrancy and ingenuity to the dance music arena.
