JUMP N FUNK created by Rich Medina:
Dedicated to the music of late Nigerian band leader and the undisputed king of Afrobeat Fela Anikulapo Kuti and his far-reaching influence on Afrobeat, funk, soul, disco, and house music.

Rich Medina has raised global awareness for Afrobeat. He has presented Jump N Funk around the world in Tokyo, Brussels, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Miami, NYC, LA and now Raleigh, NC. For the past two decades, Medina has cemented his reputation as a DJ capable of taking audiences on a sonic journey through hip-hop, house, soul, afro-beat, funk, breaks and dance classics. 

"Rich Medina may be the finest DJ in the New York-Philadelphia axis, with deep crates and a fine touch, Mr. Medina floats easily across categories, spinning hip-hop, old soul, new soul, house music, Afrobeat and beyond." - The New York Times
