The Philosophers of Funk Productions (POF) dba Phunk Productions is a Victoria, B.C., based corporation. Since early 1996, it has been producing & promoting the best dance events on the Canadian West Coast. Within the Greater Victoria and Vancouver regions, POF has set the standard for quality sound and visual presentation of rave and club events. Through the process, POF has aligned itself with various government agencies, working hard on safety issues while paving the way to keep the music on late.
Always ahead of the curve in seeking out the finest DJ and electronic talents from the global dance scene, Philosophers of Funk was the first company to expose the Northwest, to such names as Carl Cox, Paul Oakenfold, Dave Ralph, Frankie Knuckles, King Britt, David Alvarado, Mark Lewis, Christopher Lawrence, John Kelley, DJ Brian & the entire Moontribe collective, Thomas Michael, Grant Plant and skylab 2000 to name a few. POF’s one-off events and annual parties such as “Subconscious” featuring Carl Cox have undoubtedly shaped the current west coast Canadian Club Culture.
In 1998 the Philosophers of Funk decided to expand its vision. Opening offices in Los Angeles, California, POF founded the wholly owned subsidiary Phatt Phunk Records Inc. dedicated to producing and marketing many genres of dance music. As the end of the millennium set, Phatt Phunk Records signed a deal with distribution giant Koch International in Canada. The circle now complete, POF’s legacy will continue to grow as it is now able to market music within the borders of its roots.
On the home front, 2001 set the stage for POF to hold a series of prominent club nights featuring the best local and world-class DJs. Stay tuned!!
