Walla P is acknowledged as one of funk’s contemporary ambassadors, owing to his expertly-curated selections and passionate demeanor.
The Montreal native runs Voyage Funktastique, a global brand that includes a monthly live event, a weekly radio show, and a record label. Armed with an intense love of all things funky, Walla P presents his passion through rare grooves and dance moves, as he effortlessly journeys from classic to modern funk. The Music Is My Sanctuary collaborator has brought his vibes to crowds in Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Lyon, Brussels, Frankfurt, Cologne, Copenhagen, Nantes, Montpellier, Marseille, Strasbourg, Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Mexico City. He’s shared the stage with DâM-Funk, Kaytranada, Pomo, Onra, and Peanut Butter Wolf. He’s performed on Boiler Room and at festivals such as Osheaga, Piknic Electronik, Igloofest, Festival d’Été de Québec, POP Montréal, NXNE, C2 Montréal, 24HOV, M For Montreal, and Montreal International Jazz Festival.
For this mix, I wanted to do an all UK Jazz/Funk pressings set; playing some of my favorite tracks, including classics and some instrumentals as well.
