GUSHI & RAFFUNK
Music Production & Live Performances
In 2005, GUSHI & RAFFUNK started their own project producing original music for “Amnesia Ibiza Chillout Sessions” and “Fashion TV” compilations.

LIVE PERFORMANCES / DJ SET
Their repertoire at Live Performances offers original tracks combined with revisited versions arranged by Gushi & Raffunk in downtempo-chill, midtempo and deep house style. Their exhibitions are adaptable to multiple situations such as live shows, fashion events, product launches, private parties, receptions, chilling spaces and every other situation where style and pro ciency are required. They’re ideal for fresh, intimate and comfortable ambiances.
Their Live DJ Set is mainly based on Midtempo and Deep House atmospheres combined with live vocal intervention, also adaptable to a more up-tempo club format.
Both of the situations can be proposed separately or in a whole format, including DJ Set + Live Performance. This “package” may vary depending on the needs of the venue.
