Get funky

08/12/2009 10:30 PM

With tracks and remixes released on compilations for everyone from Defected to Ministry of Sound, it's little wonder there's huge anticipation for Born 2 Funk's Duabi performance.

Booked especially for tonight's final session of OHM's Digital event at Chi, the pioneering Dutch DJ says he can't wait to "feel the intense heat and surreal nature of Dubai". The first Dutch act to ever appear on the famous Swiss label Purple Music, Ferdinard Lijnkamp - the man behind the name - plays more than 100 gigs a year in Holland alone apart from jetting off to Ibiza, Miami, Bangkok and the UAE.

Industry moguls often refer to him as Europe's most "in-demand" producer and re-mixer ever.

tabloid! caught up with Lijnkamp ahead of Chi's final fling

Name: Born 2 Funk
Nickname: King of Acapella (which he won't admit himself is due to his clever 4-deck skills)
Age: 35
Nationality: Dutch

What is the best and worst thing about being a DJ?

Best is spreading the love for music and the worst is ear damage.

What's the most impressive venue you've played and why?

Dance Valley. Google it and you'll know why.

I think my celebrity moment of glory was at The Life Ball in Vienna when Bill Clinton and Pamela Anderson were high-fiving me after I dropped some funky tunes for them.

If you could DJ at any celeb birthday bash who would it be for and why?

Michael Jordan, because unfortunately the other great MJ is gone.

What are your musical influences?

My heartbeat.

Tell us the key to being a successful DJ?

Never give up and believe in what you're playing.

Who is your musical hero?

Herbie Hancock.

The final event in the OHM Digital series takes place at Chi @The Lodge tonight. Tickets are available on the door.
