a.k.a. Tom Dekkers got interested in music at an early age already. As his parents were running their own pub, music always played an important role in his life, as he was growing up in a town called Beverwijk in the North of Holland. Being a teenager he started to experiment with the cd players in the family pub, to entertain the guests. At a later stage, he would do so as well, in the other local bars and clubs in the area.
In 2006 Funkastarz merged with his cousin MC Richie and created an on and of creative DJ and MC team. As they were teaching themselves the works in the studio, the productions gained quality in time.
Since then, Funkastarz has created some dancefloor bangers like … Rock This - Make Some Noize - Things Started - Going To London - Real High - Hit The Deck - 100% Dutch, Air! and offcourse his latest hit single in collaboration with LEGEND DJ JEAN! Jean vs Funkastarz - DubFlavourz!

J&M (Drachten), Millennium (Castricum), De Rede (Dronten), Club CREAM - Eindelijk Weer (Almere), Bob’s Saloon (Uitgeest), Madhouse - Panama (Amsterdam), Xenon (Wijk aan Zee), Club Lua (Beverwijk), Palladio (Helden), Ministry Of Sound (Egypt), Hed Kandi (Egypt), Beach Festival (Bloemendaal), Powerzone (Amsterdam), MINX Exclusive - Escape (Amsterdam) - Beachclub vreoger etc etc…
