The New Jersey producer Aaron really made a name for himself in 2015. Hot releases all year, and his heart for Disco and Future Funk is just what we love.

Some of our most loved singles this year came from the Sydney. MPP is awesome, and we hope the best for them in the future.

8) Jean Tonique

He started with a fantastic EP and then made some dope edits and remixes that has been noticed all over the world. The Frenchman really broke through this year!

2) The Floozies

One wicked EP and several amazing singles (even with Kool & The Gang). Definitely deserves a spot.

We finally experienced his awesomeness live in 2015, and with his new EP, coffee shop album, and live playlist the Slovenian is such a huge inspiration and quality artist.

We love what Besnine does, and mainly because he’s so real about it. 2015 has been huge, with stunning releases and a new EP that marked the start of a promising career. We hope to see him live one day!

6) The Noisy Freaks

There is not much to say about the two fellas. Their level of funk is AMAZING and the new EP they released beginning of December is fantastic. Their 2015 releases are some of the best electronic funk you’ll hear. Ever!

This guy has been so incredibly active in 2015 that we almost don’t understand it. Not only funk, but quality all over – we love Defunk!

For years Father Funk has been delivering extremely good tracks, and so many of them for free. We can’t thank him enough for his contribution to the funk.
