For decades, fans of electronic and IDM have been tracking the pioneering Dutch musician Roel Funcken. Through his signature sound and notable techniques, he built his name on such labels as Funcken Industry, Outside Recordings, Schematic, Eat Concrete, Ad Noiseam, ShipWrec, Tympanik Audio Combat Recording, Analogical Force, n5MD, Touched Music, Neo Ouija, Stung Records, Igloomag, Headphone Commute, Data.Wave and A Strangely Isolated Place.

Probablement le musicien le plus prolifique de la musique électronique abstraite de ce côté de la galaxie.
Probably the most prolific musician in abstract electronic music on this side of the galaxy.


With his solo debut, titled Vade, Roel Funcken officially appeared on the scene in 2010 under the Berlin-based record label Ad Noiseam. With his brother Don, they as a duo, have released music on labels such as, Djak-Up-Bitch, Schematic, Sublight Records, Neo Ouija, and more, as the one and only Funckarma.

By 2009, the Funcken brothers launched their very own digital-only Funcken Industry label. This remarkable move brought in more projects with Shadow Huntaz, Scone, Quench, Automotive, and his most recent solo works. Although his brother Don gradually slipped into the background, (not to mention his work with Roel and Cor Bolten as Legiac) Roel has continued to influence and be actively involved in the evolution of music through various releases, the community, music festivals, mixes, and his exclusive slot aired on Headphone Commute's podcast.

 Roel Funcken demonstrates his mastery of bass-heavy and intelligent dance music which defies any music genre.


Perfecting sound design, Roel Funcken’s music incorporates unique experimentation of electronic sounds that cut with twisted atmospheric and sonic soundscapes that arouse a longing for more. His ambient textures maintain a cinematic quality while his percussive arrangements retain a constantly mutating framework. Funcken is always reconstructing rhythm and structure by contradicting complex configurations and minimal design. It's always a pleasure to taste the latest treat from this aural never-ending arsenal of sound.
We live in a marvelous time where the age of information is at our fingertips. One of the best ways to consume this information is through podcasts.
