DJ Funky Junkie's career began way back in 1985. when he started his weekly radio show on "Radio Nis" along with his friend, DJ Mixmaster. From that moment on up to these days he spins his records in clubs & venues all over Serbia, neighbour countries and around Europe.
With 30 years of experience under his belt, and many records in his huge vinyl collection, it is fair to say that Funky Junkie is one of the founders of a contemporary club scene in Nis & Serbia. As a great fan of funk, jazz funk, soul, disco funk, brazil & latin music, nu wave, post punk he collects vinyls which are kept in his respectable collection, and this is the music he likes to play most even today alone or with his friend DJ Ceka The Boss as a part of notorious "The Funk Soul Brothers". There are many DJs who have rather major influence on his career, to name some of them: Francis Grasso, David Mancuso, Nicky Siano, Larry Levan, Walter Gibbons, Bobby Guttardo, Danny Krivit, Francois Kevorkian, Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Gilles Peterson, Paul Murphy, Patrick Forge, Kevin Beadle, Dr. Bob Jones, Keb Darge, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa etc. (to name just a DJs, not the bands & the producers).
The proof of his musical diversity was a legendary cult one man radio show called "Tripovanje" (Trippin') which was broadcasted firstly on "Belle Amie" radio back in the 90's and then on "Fast Radio".
During all these years he was behind the decks with many famous DJs and played opening acts for many bands from Bob Sinclar and Hernan Cattaneo to The Brand New Heavies, Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, Joey Negro and Faze Action for example. To name all of them would take a lot of place & time. Unfortunately, we do not have enough of both :) Funky Junkie is also a promoter, director of the "Midnight Jazzdance Stage" on Nisville Jazz Festival and he organized many great events in Nis.
