Funki Porcini is musician and DJ, James Braddell, from England.His music is a combination of Downtempo, Breakbeat and Jazz, with elements of Hip hop, Drum and bass, sampling and time-stretched vocals.

He spent ten years in Italy making music for film and television. Thereafter, he returned to England. In 1994 he signed to independent record label Ninja Tune and set up his own studio, "The Uterus Goldmine". He has released four albums to date.

For his forth album, "Fast Asleep", Braddell worked with Team Alcohol (aka Rupert Small) to produce visual interpretations of eight tracks, which are included on the album's accompanying DVD disc.

He has also recorded as a member of 9 Lazy 9 (aka 8 Lazy Bastards), under the pseudonym Giacomo Braddellini; and released the EP "Float On" (1995), as a member of short-lived band Purr, along with DJ N4Eric (aka Toona) and Stuart Warren-Hill of Hexstatic.
