I SEE YOU BABY!
Introduction

“I SEE YOU BABY”-SHAKIN' DAT ASS!”

OF COURSE YOU'VE HEARD IT. WHETHER YOU WERE WALKING ALONG THE COAST OF CAPRI, OR MAYBE YOU WERE BLOWING KISSES FROM THE PRIVATE LOUNGE WITH DAVID MORALES AT MINISTRY OF SOUNDS OR GETTING DOWN AT ERIC MORILLO’S WEEKLY SET SUBLIMINAL AT NYC’S CENTRO FLY. EITHER WAY, WHERE AND WHEN YOU HEARD IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER, BUT REMEMBERING WHO GAVE IT TO YOU IS ESSENTIAL! 

FROM EVERY CORNER OF THE GLOBE GRAMMA FUNK----“THE FUNK HOSTESS WIT DA MOSTESS,” HAS STARTED A CRAZE THAT HAS REVIVED THE IDEA OF UNRESTRICTED FUN.

GRAMMA FUNK—THEN TOI SOJER, GOT HER FIRST BREAK IN ENTERTAINMENT AFTER A STINT IN THE U.S. ARMY, BY WORKING AT STEVIE WONDER’S RADIO STATION "KJLH". 

IDENTIFIABLY A MOVER-AND SHAKER, TOI WAS CONVINCED TO TAKE A POSITION AT NEXT PLATEAU RECORDS IN NEW YORK CITY WHERE SHE BEGAN WORK WITH SUCH NOTABLES AS SALT-N-PEPA AND THE ULTRA MAGNETIC MC’S.

AFTER A STINT RUNNING HER MERCHANDISING COMPANY CALLED “READY FOR DUTY” DESIGNING LOGOS AND MERCHANDISE FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY, GRAMMA FUNK BEGAN PROMOTING PARTIES CALLED “THE FUNK HUT” WHICH BECAME FAMOUS THROUGHOUT NEW YORK CITY. 

IT WAS HERE THAT GRAMMA FUNK WAS TRULY BORN. “THE FUNK HUT” DREW IN PERFORMANCES FROM ANYONE WHO WAS ANYONE ON THE NEW YORK SOUL, HIP HOP AND FUNK SCENE---- P. DIDDY, DIGIABLE PLANETS, WU-TANG CLAN, BUSTA RHYMES, DOUG E. FRESH, QUEEN LATIFAH AND THE FUGEES TO NAME ONLY A FEW.

GRAMMA FUNK DECIDED TO TAKE HER FUNK GLOBAL AND FOUND HERSELF MAKING PLANS WITH LONDON’S TREVOR NELSON TO FINE TUNE THE VIBE THAT WOULD EVENTUALLY ENTRANCE THOUSANDS.

SINCE HER LANDING IN EUROPE, THOSE THAT PAY HOMAGE TO THE CULT OF FABULOUSNESS HAVEN’T BEEN THE SAME. 

AFTER INTOXICATING THE LONDON SET PRESENT AT CLUB EVENTS, ON TV DOCUMENTARIES, AND RADIO ONE'S VOICE OVER’S-SHE FOUND HERSELF ON THE ISLAND OF IBIZA, SPAIN MC-ING AND PARTING WITH YET ANOTHER CROWD.

DUBBED THE ISLAND FOR SEX, SAND, SEA, SIN, AND SUNSHINE, GRAMMA FUNK HAS PLAYED HOSTESS TO EVERYONE FROM THE IDLE AND TAWDRY RICH TO THE LIKES OF GRACE JONES, KATE MOSS, MADONNA, MICK JAGGER, AND SULTANS.

IT WAS THERE ON THE DECADENT ISLAND OF IBIZA THAT GRAMMA FUNK BEGAN SPONTANEOUSLY MC-ING OVER THE MUSIC IN HER OWN INIMITABLE STYLE. 

AFTER BEING SPOTTED BY MIKE MANUMISSION, SHE WAS SOON OFFERED A REGULAR HOSTING AND MC-ING POSITION AT HIS UNDERGROUND EXPERIENCE MANUMISSION MOTEL. IT WAS AT THE MANUMISSION MOTEL THAT SHE MET GROOVE ARMADA’S TOM AND ANDY.

GRAMMA FUNK TRAVELED TO LONDON TO WRITE AND RECORD HER VOCALS FOR “IN MY BONES” AND “I SEE YOU BABY” ONE OF THE STAND OUT TRACKS FROM GROOVE ARMADA’S ACCLAIMED “VERTIGO” ALBUM ON SONY RECORDS. 

WITH THE RELEASE OF THE REMIXED VERSION OF “I SEE YOU BABY” BY BEATMEISTER DU JOUR FATBOY SLIM IN EUROPE & THE U.S., ITS POPULARITY HAS PROMPTED THIS SINGLE TO BE LICENSED OUT TO A HOST OF FILMS, TELEVISION PROGRAMS, DANCE COMPILATIONS AND COMMERCIALS AROUND THE WORLD. 

SINCE THEN GRAMMA FUNK HAS BEEN RE-WRITING HER OWN HISTORY.

IN 2011 GRAMMA FUNK & ANDY CALDWELL'S SINGLE "FUNK NASTY" WAS NOMINATED FOR THE 53RD ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS - BEST REMIXED RECORDING, NON-CLASSICAL. 

IN 2012 GRAMMA FUNK'S SINGLE WITH GROOVE ARMADA "I SEE YOU BABY" CAN BE HEARD IN THE NEW NIKE FUELBAND-COUNT JAM COMMERCIAL.

PERHAPS IT WAS THE FAST-PACE OF NEW YORK CITY, OR THE INSTANT CELEBRITY SHE RECEIVED ONCE SHE OPENED THE REVERED FUNK HUT, BUT IT CAUSED GRAMMA FUNK TO LEAVE HER MARK WHEREVER SHE GOES! 

SO THE NEXT TIME YOU’RE PARTYING AND YOU HEAR “I SEE YOU BABY” REMEMBER WHO GAVE IT TO YOU

“THE FUNK HOSTESS WIT´ DA MOSTESS”- GRAMMA FUNK!

Bragging rights
I SURVIVED 6 YEARS LIVING IN IBIZA, SPAIN. THE ISLAND OF SEX, SAND, SEA, SIN & SUNSHINE!
