Gonna Funk Tonight (120 Re-Mix) Performed by: D1scostu
Born in London, England- D1scostu (Stuart Hyson) is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger & music producer. Trained in classical and jazz piano he has performed as a session musician for many artists and appears on a number or releases. He now works from his own studio - Black11 Studios producing his own music as well as working with other artists. From an early age he showed a natural talent for music and after hearing an old recording of Winifred Atwell playing the Black & White Rag, chose the piano as his desired instrument. He was transfixed by the syncopated rhythm. This led to a love of ragtime, blues, boogie woogie and jazz. Dr John was a huge influence along with the great jazz pianists Herbie Hancock & Chick Corea. He also loved the free style playing of Thelonious Monk which you can still here in a lot of his production today.
Along with writing music for visual media makers, he also writes in many genres from hiphop to Latin jazz, classical to boogie woogie.
