DJ and Producer Funk D’Void compiled 20 years of DJ history into a timeless and classic mix, to be released in North America on October 9, 2012.

“My inspiration for Balance 022 stems from listening to the ‘Back To Mine’ compilation series of the previous decade,” he reveals. “A particular memory was imprinted on me from a long car journey back from the beach with friends when we listened to one of the releases without speaking for two hours, completely lost in the whole magic of the day together.” he reveals.

Let’s talk about the 2 Disc series. Disc 1 starts off with HawkinsonIntroduction (Funk D’Void remix) and encompasses the sounds of deeper house with groovy beats that permeate a typical Funk D’Void set.

“I basically made a selection of moments that have had the biggest impact on me and attempted to weave them into a cohesive structure that might connect on the same level that I had experienced them. Every track has been edited by me so I wasn’t held back by overlong arrangements built for the club, opting instead for the immediate impact that could still be attained as one body of work.” – Funk D’Void
