Trunk Funk Sound System was born out of the legendary Kumfy Klub parties in the late 90s and early 00s, where DJ Smiley and percussionist JD (Jonathan Dalwitz) would often perform together as the headline/closing act of the night. You’d always hear an energetic mix of bassline driven house, funky breaks and bold beats.
The duo’s popularity grew and high profile bookings at the Adelaide Festival clubs such as Lola’s Pergola (2014) and Persian Garden (2008) followed. However, in the last few years has seen the duo pursue individual gigs and projects and perform less often together.
