Known for many memorable exploits in techno, Metamorphic Recordings boss Dan Curtin is revisiting his roots in house music by rekindling his Purveyors of Fine Funk nom de plume. Curtin, who was involved in the Midwest rave scene in the ’90s and currently lives in Berlin, launched the POFF alias during that halcyon era, releasing vinyl-only EPs on Peacefrog and an a full-length album on Nepenta in 2001. “Purveyors of Fine Funk is my house alter ego, sometimes it’s a collaboration, sometimes not, but it’s always about that funk, house with an edge and intense soul, definitely jacking, sometimes acid and always looking to the future,” says Curtin, “but now it’s time for Purveyors to finally hit the decks and bring this signature house sound to the club as a DJ set.”
In addition to gigs Curtin will release POFF’s Soul Message EP on December 12 via Metamorphic. According to a missive, the four-track EP finds him channeling tough Chicago grooves. Until then, have a listen to Curtin’s old-school jam “Summer Funk” that could still set any dance floor ablaze.
