After an unfortunate sequence of events we’re saddened to report that British DJ and producer Funkagenda has announced that he will be taking a hiatus from touring for at least the rest of 2013 whilst he battles depression.
Funkagenda’s deeply personal DJ sets and production have built the boy from the Black Country a rising international fan base. Accumulating fierce support both on and off the dance floor, from industry to individuals, Funkagenda’s popularity has continued to rise after a series of hit releases on a plethora of well known labels over the last few years and saw him deliver an excellent podcast for us a short while back.
From the whole team at Data Transmission we’d like to wish him all the best in the coming months and hope a speedy recovery and appearance behind the decks isn’t too far away in the future. Check out his statement on the decision below:
“Hi guys. A lot of you are familiar with the fact that I suffer from depression as I’ve spoken about it a few times over the last year or so. In accordance with advise from my doctors, my management, agents + we have decided that I should take a brief hiatus from touring. It will allow me to address the issue of my depression + also allow me to make some awesome new music for you all to enjoy. This will mean I have to reappoint a few shows until after Xmas. I’d like you all to know that, missing shows is not something I take lightly and I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t absolutely necessary.
During the interim I will be releasing a few exclusive mixes for you to enjoy + possibly a free track. And of course I will be on my social media intermittently to answer questions, reply to fans etc.
I hope you all realize that this is unavoidable + I’ll see you back on the decks nearer Xmas time…”
