Chicago House Music Legend DJ Farley Jackmaster Funk spinned at the highest rooftop bar and restaurant in KL Marini's on 57





Last Friday nite For the first time in Malaysia, It's All About House Music :Chicago House, saw the debut of Chicago’s own DJ Farley Jackmaster Funk at Marini's on 57

There was a good crowd at Marini's on 57 to greet DJ Farley and his music was very well received by all. Many were dancing all night long. 


Percussionist Calvin Clark accompanied DJ Farley on his conga throughout the set, setting the beat for the night.

.Farley Keith (born Farley Keith Williams, January 25, 1962, ChicagoIllinois), better known as Farley "Jackmaster" Funk, is a DJ and record producer of Chicago house music. He is notable for producing a number of tracks in the mid and late 1980s. He has recorded and performed under the aliases Farley Keith, Rude Boy Farley Keith, Farley Funkin' Keith.

He was among 8 Dj's that had a street named after him in Chicago

 Farley Jackmaster Funk Way

In 2014, the city of Chicago approved another street name overhaul in the name of Hot Mix Five—this time on the 1300 block of South Michigan Avenue. The block was renamed to honor DJ Farley Jackmaster Funk, a king of house music in his own right. He became wildly popular thanks to his tenure with the Hot Mix Five, but one of his greatest contributions to house music was his active role in bringing it to mainstream audiences. While Frankie Knuckles—whom Funk openly admits to having imitated for much of his early career—was spinning sets at the Warehouse, Funk tried to usher house into a new era.
That era started at the Playground, a mainstream club located at 1347 South Michigan Avenue. There, thousands of people could dance to the deep, thumping bass of Funk and other rising house DJs.
The street will remain Farley Jackmaster Funk Way until the end of 2017, when the name will go up for review (city policy states that street names must be reviewed for possible renewal every few years). Till then, you’ll find Funk’s honorary block right outside where he made the most difference for modern dance music.
House music fans will know him from his hits ‘Jack My Body’, ‘Hey Norton’, ‘The Trax U Lost’ and most famously, ‘House Nation’, which made it into the top ten of the UK charts at the time of release.
