Hi, I’m Joe Gatto, life-long music fanatic, searcher, traveler, ex-DJ in Maui, Hawaii, and music journalist in Caracas, Venezuela. I love digging deep to find the funkiest music, from a variety of genres around the world.
Nowadays, I’m living in Chiang Mai, Thailand and operating Funkish.Audio (among other endeavors). I’ve created this outlet to share the music I love, and am constantly discovering, with other like minded individuals. And, as a musical discovery service for time-strapped lovers of eclectic music that want to get into something new, but just don’t know where all to look for inspiration.
Eclectic Explorations in Music
I’ve always kept my passion burning for musical discovery. Whether old or new, from Brazil to Brooklyn & across the globe, there is a rich world of music culture to explore. It’s music rooted in the African diaspora — groovy, funky, syncopated, soulful sounds, made with heart — joyful music that resonates with your soul.
How you define the music isn’t important — it’s that you get to hear it & enjoy it — that you feel it. It’s all out there for us to experience. Now it’s just a matter of discovering it, organizing it, and ideally sharing & enjoying it with other cool people.
Thanks to services like Spotify, you have access to almost all the music ever recorded for just a few dollars a month. And yet…how will you make time to dig through the digital crates to discover the musical gems hidden across genres & eras?
A World Of Funky Music All In One Place
My intention with Funkish is to create an epic resource guide for people curious to broaden their musical horizons, but maybe don’t know where to look, and who don’t have time to search for unforgettable new music. And, I want to share the music I love with like minded musical explorers…finding & befriending people that already love these grooves.
I dig up & organize all kinds of marvelous music so you don’t have to. Let me be your musical discovery service…
I compile & curate this funkish blend of musical genres & cultures — Funk, Jazz, Soul, Reggae, Afro-Beat, Underground Latin Music, Salsa, Samba, joyful tropical grooves, and that which is beyond categories. You save time & get to enjoy these sonic delights.
