Vander Funk
Artist Image Fresh out of high school, Vander Funk was snapped up by a Sydney entertainment company, DJing for house parties, corporate events and private parties – you name it.

Twelve months later, VF moved to the beautiful Gold Coast to study Business Management, and saved enough money to buy his first set of turntables and a basic mixer. He got to work on his parents’ old-school funk and RnB vinyl collection, honing his craft and developing his sound. It was the music that inspired the name of his act; Vander Funk is Dutch for ‘From the Funk’.

With a basic set of gear, VF began DJing local gigs, and quickly developed a loyal following. From his successful competitive debut at Your Shot 2011, VF went on to hit the pub/nightclub scene with stints at Q1 Skypoint (1yr residency), Alto Bar Broadbeach (1yr residency), QT Hotel Stingray Bar, Komune Resort Coolangatta, Coolangatta Hotel, Ivory Hotel, Lonestar Hotel and Parkwood Hotel. Dabbling in CDJ and EDM DJing, VF never lost the funk.

Towards the end of 2012, VF landed a nightclub residency at The Beat in Brisbane, where he presided over the Wreckers Room playing Hip Hop, RnB, Old School, Trap, Twerk and Anything Urban. Over the next two years, VF turned the spot into The Beat’s most popular room, and arguably one of the best Hip Hop venues in Brisbane.

At the end of 2014, it was time to come home. VF took up an offer to DJ at The Coolangatta Hotel’s iCon Nightclub, working the local crowd and growing his loyal fan base until further opportunity called In 2015 and VF took to the stages of East nightclub in Broadbeach exposing the scene to his unique style.

2016 & 2017 was used to further expand VF’s repertoire with a range of guest spots and regular features alongside some of the Gold Coast’s most reputable bands and live acts in Broadbeach at the famous Liars Bar.

2018 & Vander Funk has returned by popular demand to Coolangatta’s iCon Nightclub mixing his way through the latest and greatest in Urban music, further cultivating the Hip Hop scene on the southern Gold Coast alongside the city’s most sought after DJs.

2015 saw VFM take over icon Coolangatta’s Friday night Hip Hop & RnB, delivering a weekly fix of Urban events, exposing the local crowd to live Hip Hop Vocalists as well as supporting DJs.

After a well needed hiatus, in 2018 VFM returned to iCon Nightclub picking up right where they left off, delivering an unbelievably solid lineup of acts, rebuilding a loyal fan base.

Collaboration with Moka Young

VF works as a performing DJ with local Hip Hop artist and lead vocalist, Blake ‘Moka’ Young. After meeting in 2012, VF and Moka teamed up to take Moka’s originals on the local circuit, opening for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony on their 2012 Tour at the Werd of Mouth Hip Hop Festival.

The act has since grown to a 5-piece band, with the Moka Young Show rocking crowds at the GC600 (Melbas & Circle on Cavil), RAW Arts Festival (Currumbin RSL), Byron Bay Brewery, Redbull Show (Townsville, Coolangatta Hotel – opened for 28 days), and many more.
