Costantino Padovano better know as D.J. Mixmaster or Funky Junction started his career in Brooklyn with a diversity of psychedelic styles, thus laying the foundation for the New York underground. Since 1979 he was involved with music, combining his knowledge of cutting edge New York dance club music with his own fresh style, Costantino became well known in New York clubs such as Plato’s, Limelight, Danceteria, and the Tunnel. He since than became one of the originators of the House music movement. Throughout the years his musical style has often changed, and he has gone from being one of the first hard house DJ of New York to one of the few people that have taught the World club scene true soul.

Matured though his many experiences in and outside New York, Costantino now spins with global glitz, mixing kicking back and Latin grooves with uplifting garage, hard house and the deepest of deep house. Since 1980 Costantino has gained international recognition and his guest appearances have taken him to Spain (Ibiza – Palma de Majorca), Portugal, (Lisbon) Mexico, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany and Belgium.

By 1990 his release of "In the Mix" on DJ international records established him as an artist and producer in his own right with; Platinum record “Gloria Gaynor and the Tramps - Mighty High”, Gold Record for best remixer “740 Boyz -Shimmy Shake”, Simple Minds “Biba Rom featuring JIM KERR (Simple Minds lead Singer) One Step Closer.

Altogether Costantino has more than 700 records on his credit and 22 years of experience as DJ, Producer and Remixer. He also was a member for 5 years of the Def Mix crew, and Billboard reporter. His production work with the Voice of the Underground can be heard around the world.

Known for his innovative style and progressive sounds as well as a foresight for industry trends, he is in great demand as a producer and Remixer. Costantino sound is featured on releases by 740 Boyz, KC Flightt, 2 Unlimited, Diva Convention, Afromedusa, and many others.
