About hendu231979

Raised in Chicago, I was raised with a love for diverse sounds at the time of the Warehouse Days. Today I have a weekly radio show (Thelonious Funk Sessions) and a monthly show (Thelonious Funk's Monthly Report) in Finland on I am blessed to have a laundry list of supporters for my show: Tom Trago Tim Toh SoulPhiction Michael Rutten Jerome Derradji dOP Pirahnahead Paul Randolph I am willing anything that will destroy the dancefloor. If Deep House and Techno is your thing then you are in for a treat!

Thelonious Funk Sessions #270


This week’s show feature’s music from Vagrant, Hanna, Bonobo & Kettenkarussell. I have music from the Rebirth 10 year anniversary remix EP featuring music from Full Intention and Butch & Vogt. There’s music from Saile, Sentiments (featuring Franck Gérard), Tilman & Soutine.  Every once in a while there is a track that despite how much you have your ear to the ground, you still missed it. Well Mount Liberation Unlimited’s “Clinton Space Funk” qualifies as such. I have a collaboration between Butane & Worldline followed by Fabrice Lig, Ocobaya & a banger from Retro Activity. Dan Ghenacia & Chris Carrier remixes a classic from Madrid Inc & Daphni rounds off the 1st part of the show.

For the 2nd par of the show I have music from nthng, a replay of SHDW & Obscure Shape, Uto Karem, Robert Hood and a triple play of DJ Deep. I have more upfront pressure from Radio Slave followed by Cadans & 2000 and One (remixed by Len Faki). New music from Aggborough, Boston 168, ABSL & +plattform. SHDW & Obscure Shape appears again on the show this time remixed by Dax J, followed by Lory D & Ewan Jansen rounding off the show. Lastly I will be archiving the Next Gen exclusive mixes on my Mixcloud page very soon. Until then…

Enjoy the music,

For this very tardy edition of April’s Monthly Report, I have music from the albums of Alexey Nikitin, William Masson & Greymatter. Lone returns with a killer ep on R&S. Ike Release has some new Material on Mister Saturday Night. New music from Botshelo Moate, Josh Butler & Gunnter. Madrid Inc gets a proper repress after 17 years. More bangers from Adryiano, Viers & TWR72 remixes Michael Klein. I must say the most slept on label for releases this year has to go to PLOINK. This time it is another impressive LP by +plattform. Markus Suckut & Peter Van Hoesen rounds off the show with some heavy tracks. Just a heads up be sure to check out my soundcloud page for 2 exclusive mixes I’ve done for Come Up Records & for Svedjebruk records. Definitely some mixes I enjoyed doing. Also all of the shows that are up for Thelonious Funk Sessions have Next Gen Mixes for Nebraska, Ken Desmend, Yotam Avni & The Oliverwho Factory. Monthly Report for May to come very soon. Until then…

Thelonious Funk Sessions # 269 (Next Gen Mix By The Oliverwho Factory)

     Another week & brilliant show with a Next Gen Mix. For the first part of the show features music from Call Super, Aleqs Notal, Tlim Shug & forthcoming music from A Taut Line. More music from Jayson Wynters, Map.ache remixes Urban Homes and the triumphant return of Actress & Objekt. Plenty of upfront pressure from Vincent G, Dortmund, Joton, TWR72 and a stomping rerub of Radio Slave’s classic Bell Clap Dance by Tuff City Kids. I have some acid wizardry from the I Love Acid compilation from Mystic Bill & Kerrie.  More bangers to round off the first part of the show by Fabrizio Rat and Jeroen Search.
    For the second part of the show we have yet another Next Gen Mix for the 4th show in a row for 2 people that have been so loyal & supportive of this show for years.  Hailing from Detroit, The Oliverwho Factory (Darryl & Shonie C) are living proof of how music can bring people together. They are a talented husband & wife team that puts a lot of love in their music. They have released most of their music on their Madd Chaise Intl imprint. However their production have been seen on Ostgut Ton, Rush Hour Records & Carl Craig’s legendary Planet E label. When I informed them that the show is approaching 10 years they were very happy to provide a mix.
     So for the mix they provide some classics from Kerri Chandler & fellow Detroiters Carl Craig & Robert Hood. There also Skudge and Tama Sumo’s remix of Mary Boyoi which have been fixture on this show of the years. However it’s their own productions in this mix that you may want to look out for.  They included one of their older productions Never Say Never. There’s the forthcoming track “My Life” & their remix of Tribe’s Living In A New Day. The unreleased remix of  Night Lights by Kevin Saunderson is the highlight of the mix for me. The Elevator took the original to another level to say the least.  I wanted to continue the fun with a triple play of The Oliverwho Factory, followed by music from Shanti Celeste, Adryiano & Dukwa.  Big thanks to Darryl & Shonie for taking time out of your schedule to make this happen.
Enjoy The Music,

Thelonious Funk Sessions #268 (Next Gen Mix by Yotam Avni)


Another week another killer show for you to enjoy. I have music from Dukwa, C-Major and another nice collaboration between Harvey Sutherland & Bermuda. There’s forthcoming music from Hodini, D’marc Cantu & Jona Sul remixed by Matt Karmil. More tracks from Folamour, DJ Sotofett, Fred P and a collaboration between Hi Mount & Man-Dee on Regelbau. I have music from the Optimo Trax EP Japan Acid featuring tracks from Hiroshi Watanabe and Kuniyuki. Anthony Parasole’s LP on Dekmantel’s UFO Series get represented throughout this show. First part of the show rounds off with tracks from Jayson Wynters, Deep’a & Biri and Space Dimension Controller.

For the 2nd part of the show, the Next Gen Series continues with Israeli producer Yotam Avni. 2 of his tracks have made the Year End Review & I have been so impressed with how much he has evolved as a producer over the years. His fusion of using traditional sounds with techno has prompted various labels such as Innervisions, Non Series & Stroboscopic Artifacts to add him to their roster. So for his mix he has included all of the productions he’s done the past several months including an forthcoming track “Midas Touch” that will be on Innervisions. The mix also includes “Orma”, a track that has been a fixture on the show the past few weeks. Big thanks to him for getting mix over to us for our listening pleasure.

I also had more time to include more tracks from BUSZ, Carl Craig, Hiroaki Iizuka, Museum, TWR72, Andre Kronert & Rodion Stankevich. I even had time for a triple play of Planetary Assault Systems reworks. More bangers from DVS1, Elad Magdasi & some dusty old techno tunes from Monrella & Population One. Lots for you to listen to!

Enjoy the Music,

Thelonious Funk Sessions #267 (Next Gen Mix by Ken Desmend)


Kicking off the show I have music from Calibre, Larry Heard, Manmade Deejay & tracks from the Ostgut Ton camp by Nick Höppner and Fiedel. New music from Sven Weisemann, Juju & Jordash and Fred P. There’s some forthcoming music from TenGrams & Alice Bas remixed by Ena Cosovic. The triple play features tracks from AILA records featuring tunes from cliquee, Diego Pedemonte & our latest Next Gen Producer Ken Desmend (more on him in a moment). The first part of the show rounds off with music from Deep’a & Biri, Tin Man & Farrago.

For the 2nd consecutive show we have another Next Gen Exclusive mix. This time it’s Ken Desmend at the helm. If you have been following the show you may have noticed his music pop up on this show since last summer. I had a sudden overload of promos from AILA records show up in my emails. As much as I am grateful for getting promos sometimes it can be overwhelming. However the label along with many others give me a reminder that you must listen to everything. You never know what you will find. Ken Desmend was a prime example of that. The Hildburghausen, Germany based producer has been one of the most consistent producers to come out of the AILA camp so I had to get him on this mix series. So for the mix he included some of his forthcoming productions with Oskar on AILA Records. Music from the Arts imprints from Electric Rescue & Keith Carnal. He also has some killer tracks from Terence Fixmer & TVA. Big thanks to Ken for doing this mix. Also big thanks to you the listeners for listening.
Enjoy The Music,
