Funk Darker

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Funk Darker is the brainchild of longtime Minnesota resident Josh Beardman, also known as the “Funky Hermit” or “Grandpa Groove”. After a solid 50 years of vinyl collecting (first Funk, Soul, and Psychedelica, then Dub, Jazz & Hip-Hop) and messing around with Moogs the now 69-old finally is ready to put his own music out.
