Plaza De Funk
Plaza De Funk
After these two releases Plaza started working on a string of remixes all through 2006 and 2007, re-tweaking Dj Killer on Functional, Flore on IbreaksFunk, The Drum Monkeys on Westway, MI Loki on Tricksta, and doing a split remix Ep with the Groove Diggerz for Ape records. His remix of The Drum Monkeys’ Batty Batucada made even Fatboy Slim take notice, so much that he called Westway personally to get his hands on a copy of the vinyl! While his remix of Dj Killer’s Acid – released on Functional – has recently been included by General Midi on the latest instalment of the much respected Y4K series on Distinctive. Even with all this remix activity, Plaza has still found time to come up with some original tunes, releasing Get On Down on West records in early 2007. Press support has been high, with the new West single and the Flore remix being given the 5-star treatment in I-dj mag, the Got The Funk and Back Home Ep’s both voted sureplayers in Dj Mag, and the Drum Monkeys remix being chosen as dancefloor destroyer in the aforementioned Dj Mag.
Djing has also picked up hugely between 2006 and 2007, and has seen Plaza performing at Breakspoll at Fabric in February, playing two of the Uk’s biggest festivals – namely Glastonbury and Glade – while also jetting around to play in the States, France, Italy, and some of the most respected clubnights in the Uk. There have been a lot more releases between the second half of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, namely the remix of Zimbardo "Say Hey" on Ruff Dog, the remix of Break The Box "Groovy Moves" on Ground Level, the remix of the Beat Assassins "Generation MTV" on Mofo and a new original, "Ghetto Groove/Beatdown" on Brighton Breaks. In February 2008, Plaza De Funk was invited to play Breakspoll for the second time in a row and was nominated in two categories - best breakthrough dj and best breakthrough producer. He won the award for Best Breakthrough Dj 2008.
