Canadian DJ bloke Tiga has a new album called Ciao.
He's made a spoof documentary to promote it.

- an excellent source for free downloads and streams of original electronic music mixes of all sorts, from seasoned pros to beginning bedroom amatuers, all told numbering in the hundreds or thousands. My current brand new favorite is the very diverse and well-versed Detriot/Chicago techno stylings of DJ Rubsilent
. Recomended mix: Future Funk 23: (Direct MP3 link) (Streaming mp3 link)
But don't let me divert you - search for your favorite local DJ or browse for new ones.

is a often overlooked genre of dance music that is very influential for many genres of dance music that came around it and after it, including Hip-Hop, Dance, Disco, Electric Boogie, Freestyle, Techno and Drum and Bass.
One of the most prominent Electro-Funk DJs was Greg Wilson
, who has set up electrofunkroots.co.uk
to document the history
of Electro-Funk. Wilson interviews Quentin Leo Cook
, (a.k.a. Norman Cook
, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim
) on Cook's impressions of Electro-Funk and how it has influenced him as a music producer and DJ.
Wilson has also provided a personal history
and retrospective mix
of top Electro-Funk songs to A Guy Called Gerald
