Florian Keller always had his focus on the creative Funk period - but never ignored all those influences that matter for quality music. All the roots for all kinds of Club music doubtlessly generated in the late 60s to the early 80s. The drumpatterns, the basslines, the development and growing use of electronic instruments, that is what we still dance to and surely always will. No House (and Techno) without the Boogie and Electro, no Hip Hop or Drum & Bass without the Funk and the Reggae, obviously no 80s Electroclash without 80s Electro, and no intelligent music at all without the improvisational vein of Jazz. That simple it is. Originality is what counts for solid sound, and there's no doubt things are always fuelled with more spirit when they appear for the first time. That is what Party-Keller Clubnight is all about.

Florian Keller found his love for Funk 45's in the mid 1980's, is working as a radio-editor and doing compilations. As a dj Florian Keller is focussing on Funk influenced sound in an open-minded way, spannig the horizon from original raw Funk and Block Party Breaks via Boogie, Disco & Discorap to Hip Hop, even some D&B and anything else that is soulful & organic.

Touring global Clubnights since the mid 1990's e.g. Mme Jojos, Deep Funk or WahWah in London, Ellbow Rooms in San Francisco, Sochi in St. Petersburg, IBO in Dubai, Raw Fusion in Stockholm, Powderrooms in Barcelona or Funk Against Junk in Minsk, the relevant locations in Beirut, Porto, Zagreb, Osaka, Timoswara, Helsinki, Kiev, Tokyo, Ekaterinenburg..., to name a few

Dj-gigs alongside Jurassic 5's Cut Chemist, Gilles Peterson, Deep Funk Dj' Keb Darge or Ian Wright, Rob Swift, Kruder & Dorfmeister, Q-Bert, The Roots' Questlove, Quantic and many, many more

"Like stateside contemporaries Theo Parrish, Danny Krivit, and Joe Claussell, Keller challenges his listeners, spinning curious, even cultish records from the past that are still relevant to present-day clubbers. He favors records with rhythms to die for, especially of the funk, fusion, electro, hip-hop, and post-disco varieties."
