WEFUNK’s Got the Funk

In 1995 DJ Static and Professor Groove were McGill University students in Montreal, volunteering at the college radio station CKUT when, in what can now be interpreted as a blessing from the musical gods, they were paired up to fill in 15 minutes on the air. The following year Static (née Michael Lai) and Professor Groove (née Nick Foster), a self-described funk head for life, would turn hip-hop radio on its head with their genre mashing show Wefunk.
