Mo’funk lives up to his name and drops an infectious, funk heavy, Disco inspired cut on Refuge Recordings.

‘I Can’t Wait’ is a perfect pool side jam, that’s sure to heat up the rooftop and terrace parties all summer long in the Southern Hemisphere.

Originally from Sydney, Mo made his name from an early age as one of the most reliable and unique DJs in the city, Mo chose to move on from Australia back in 2008 and try his hand at the Ibiza life. Heading into his 10th season, Mo’s been holding down residencies at the islands biggest venues Pacha, Cafe Del Mar, Cafe Mambo & Space since the day he arrived, along with guest spots at Defected’s weekly throwdown Glitterbox at Hi, Mo’funk is now a name synonymous with Ibizan summers. Add to that an endorsement deal with Pioneer and you have yourself a story that dreams are made of.

‘I Can’t Wait’ is out on November 15th via Refuge Recordings.

We caught up with Mo for a few words on his release, and what’s going on with him at the moment. Check it out below!
