Funkerman (born 1975 in Breda, The Netherlands) is a Dutch House DJ and producer, who together with DJ/Producer Fedde Le Grand and producer Raf runs the record company Flamingo Recordings.[1][2] In 2005 he topped the Dutch club charts with "Rule the Night" and "The One" and in 2007 he made the Dutch Top 40, the Mega Single Top 100 and the Mega Top 50 thanks to his collaboration with Fedde Le Grand under their "F to the F" alias with "Wheels In Motion". In that same year he made the international charts with the track "Speed up", that eventually was signed by UK based label Defected Records. In 2008 he delivered several remixes — including one very famous for appearing on the Boots advertisement — and released "3 Minutes To Explain", again a collaboration with Fedde Le Grand.

The song "Speed Up" is available as a downloadable track on the Xbox 360 karaoke game, Lips.
