Biography

Funki Porcini is musician and DJ Adam Braddell, whose swirling mixtures of downtempo breaks, simple ambience, and disjointed drum’n’bass helped place the Coldcut-owned, South London-based Ninja Melody label in the map. The very first one from his 1995 Ninja debut Hed Mobile phone Sex, “Longer Street” (using a B-side, “Poseathon,” full of Bongwater examples), was highlighted on several compilations cashing in on the fashionability of “trip-hop,” but Porcini’s make of laid-back, atmospheric breakbeat is certainly much less gimmicky than that connection suggests. His follow-up to Hed Mobile phone Sex, Appreciate, Pussycats, and Carwrecks, is certainly filled up with jittery, jazz-laden drum’n’bass with an excellent dose of generally quite twisted laughter. Braddell played THE UNITED STATES using the Coldcut conglomerate DJ Meals within the 1996 Unexploded Bomb tour, and is continuing to grow increasingly in-demand being a remixer, disorganizing monitors by everyone from Journeyman towards the Mike Blooms Pops. His third record in total, Eventually Empty Mil Pounds, released in 1999 and was quickly accompanied by an EP, Zombie. Followers waited many years to get more materials from Braddell, though Fast Asleep finally made an appearance (following a lengthy hold off) in past due 2002.
