Dr. Dfunkt is the creation of Kamran Abdi. Abdi uses funk music as a vehicle to incorporate his diverse influences into a solid and coherent pop sound. In late 2004, Kamran independently produced and released a full-length album to a very receptive audience. His talent and resourcefulness were complimented further when he formed his live band in April 2005. With band-mates, Chuk Warren, Jason Burns, Craig Mercer, and Aaron Collier, Kamran Abdi has created a strong presence for himself in a short amount of time. Through smart touring, Dr. Dfunkt has amassed a strong following throughout Atlantic Canada. They leave a buzz in every town or city they visit. From hippie to pop festivals, Dr. Dfunkt can't help but keep winning fans from all walks of life and backgrounds. Dr. Dfunkt is a high-energy dance-driven sound that is very concise on arrangement and feel. Their superb musicianship, tough rhythms, and high-octane riffs appeal to guys and girls. The new Dr. Dfunkt album (Running Hot) was officially released on Tuesday September 12. This is Abdi's first time engineering and producing a live band. The challenge has turned out to be a blessing. The record is hot with a very 'live off the floor' sound.
