SAE alumni bringing Mo'funk to the world

8 Dec 2016

Mo’funk is a Sydney-based DJ veteran. The former host of FBi radio's flagship dance show, inthemix SUNSET, Mo has been a permanent fixture on Spain's wildest clubbing playground, Ibiza, over the past nine seasons.

Holding down DJ residencies on the island’s leading institutions such as Space, Pacha, Cafe Mambo and Cafe Del Mar, Mo'funk has cemented himself as one of Australia's leading DJ exports.

Mo has supported all the big music legends from Snoop Dogg, Erykah Badu, Mark Ronson, Jazzy Jeff, Carl Cox, Dj Sneak, and Crazy P, to  Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Kenny Dope, Todd Terry and Nightmares on Wax.

The Pioneer sponsored DJ is one of Australia's most talented, technically gifted, and respected mix-masters - he also happens to be one of SAE Sydney's alumni superstars!

Having graduated with a Diploma of Music Industry (Electronic Music Production), Mo'funk (aka Mauricio Nunez) takes a minute from his hectic schedule to share his career highlights and recalls memories from his time studying at SAE Sydney...

What inspired you to enter into the career you’re in?

A thirst for knowledge in the world of music. I wanted to know everything about the music industry, from hosting radio shows, working at record shops, working with music labels, making music, and of course… amassing an insane collection of dope records!

What are your fondest memories of your time at SAE?

Being in the studios and learning to understand & operate the various desks and outboard gear.

What are your career highlights?

Dj-ing and performing alongside some of my musical heroes. Being a part of the final season at Space was amazing, some spine-tingling moments went down this Summer!

What projects are you working on at the moment?

Various solo works under my guise as FWD Motion, and a few new tunes with Yogi from Random Soul & Avon Stringer.

What advice would you give to students aspiring to become successful in their field?

If you want to maintain a legacy, then study the greats that came before you. Learn what made them stand out, and be 100% original. Never fake the funk!

What do you enjoy most about working in your industry?

I love music, it’s insane to think I have made a career out of following my passion. Music is life, music makes me happy. I love Ibiza because there are many like-minded people there who live & breathe music as much as I do.
