Pam the Funkstress Biography & Music






PAM THE FUNKSTRESS BIOGRAPHY

When you think about “Heat”, the San Francisco Bay Area is a not the first place that comes to mind. But when you think “DJ heat” the “Yay Area” is exactly where to find it. And it lays claim as home to one of the nations most recognized female DJs, Pam the Funkstress. As one of the true pioneers of all female DJs, the Hip Hop community has embraced the Funkstress for more than a decade not only as a club DJ but as a performing artist. She busted out on the recording scene as a member of The Coup in 1993 with their debut album “Kill My Landlord”. Filling a political underground void, the East Oakland based Coup, earned critical acclaim by following up with “Genocide and Juice” (1994), and “Steal this Album” (1998). But it has been her commitment to the underground, DJs, and the music they embrace that has kept her fans scouring record stores and trade publications to get the latest cuts and dirt on their favorite DJ. To call Pam the Funkstress a DJ/Recording Artist would be negligent. She is an advocate for female independence and the pursuit of civil rights. College campuses frequently invited her to speak at symposiums and on panels to spread her message of success by self-reliance to the next generation. The Funkstress has been featured in music publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine, 4080, Rap Pages, Ms., Fader and Wired just to name a few. As well as news feeds toped by a CNN story concerning a controversial album cover for the 2001 release of “Party Music”. Known for cuttin’ the wax with more than just her hands, she has been asked to grace the opening stage for the elite in Rap music. From KRS-One to Grandmaster Flash to Sean “Puffy” Combs in Europe, Pam the Funkstress has answered the call of duty to get the crowd fired up. And corporate America also got fired up when Sony Entertainment brought P Dub into the studio to lay down some cuts on soundtracks for upcoming PS 2 games. Not to be out done SoBe Beverages featured the Funkstress and the Coup among others at the 2002 SoBe Adrenaline Tour, blasting off a nation wide marketing Champaign for their new energy drink Adrenaline. From East to West, from studio to stage, Pam the Funkstress lights up the tables and always leaves the party smokin’. And where there’s smoke, there’s fire. And where there’s fire, there’s…HEAT!!!

IPN - "Now It's Over"

Even though the track has characteristically sad and dark sounds inspired by Linkin Park, Mike Shinoda and Blackbear, it refers to a message of hope.
