These are just some of the musical facts about this 25 year plus veteran from Chicago, IL (U.S.A.). Raymond "RayDilla" Funnye (pronounced fun-nay) a.k.a. Strong Souls, has also held residencies at some of the hottest clubs in Chicago. He’s made numerous guest deejay appearances at many clubs, and venues, has over 100 mix CD's to his credit, continues to produce music, and for a decade, was a member of WKKC's Friday Night Audio (Chicago). So it goes to show you that House Music is not dead, and because you don't hear about a deejay or an artist for awhile doesn't mean they’ve fell off; they may just be under the radar. That’s why we call it UNDERGROUND.
