Ziggy literally can’t be awake and not be around music. Born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, but Ziggy have had a variety of musical and cultural influences & inspirations after traveling around the globe from most parts of Europe to the US, to Africa and the Middle East. These experiences & travels, have inspired his musical roots and journey and is all reflected in his DJ sets & productions.
He clearly stands out from today’s crowd of typical DJs who narrowly specialize on one and only genre and sound – he is a cratedigger and takes the road less travelled and plays everythings good for the soul, within Disco, Funk, Lounge and House Music with elements of Afro, Latin & Jazz to The Far East.
The name Ziggy Phunk is familiar and respected within the Nu Deep Disco- & Disco Edits-phere, because of his continiously feel-good, dancefloor oriented productions of both original work, remixes and quality edits & reworks of late 70s & early 80s disco, funk & soul, which is all made to sound fat on modern club systems.
Ziggy is also known for his love and burning passion for the soulful side of US house music, in the sound of Soulful House & Afro Deep. House Music don't have a big scene in Copenhagen where his from, but Ziggy is determined and inspired to share top quality house music with people and to take them on a journey with his dj sets and let the people feel that real heartfelt uplifting vibe that house music brings. He have played various bars, lounges & clubs around Europe, USA and The Middle east over the past years.
His diverse sets, professionalism, dedication, love- and energy-filled dj sets, will make sure you are in for a time of serious dancing with him behind the decks.
Because of his diversity as a dj & musical artist, he is as well a sought after lounge DJ who regulary plays on hotellounges, restaurants & cocktail bars, where he creates the perfect vibe for a night out with friends or colleagues after work.

Ziggy's own words:
"I have a seriously deep rooted connection and love for this music I make and play,
it gives me such a good feeling, I have no choice but to share it.
My main aim is to bring that good feeling to others.
I love to express myself through- and aiming to touch your
soul through the music I play".
