Willwork4funk music promotion agency specialized in funk/soul/jazz/afro/breaks/soulful house was founded in 2012 in Milan, Italy by Jada Parolini aka DJ Calamity Jade.

Having spent her teenage years in New York City, surrounded by black culture and music, it didn’t take long for the vinyl bug to bite her and Jada has been an avid collector of all that is funk since 1998. After moving to Milan, Italy in 2002 Calamity Jade starts making a name for herself and has since been constantly active producing mixes that have appeared on radioshows worldwide, DJing at clubnights in Italy and abroad and hosting weekly radio show “Funk Shui” on Italian stations Radio Popolare and Contro Radio.

In 2009 Jade starts collaborating with much-respected independent label Record Kicks, taking care of promotion and marketing, as well as opening as DJ for RK bands. In 2012 she leaves the label to open Willwork4funk through which she handles promotion in select countries including USA, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain for labels like Légère, Wah Wah 45s, HopeStreetMocambo, Jalapeno, Agogo, BuyuBreakin Bread and more.

With a growing number of projects and clients Willwork4funk is rapidly building a reputation as one of the most solid promotion agencies specialized in black music. Over 1500 radio/magazine/website contacts and regular coverage of her projects in the specialized media make Jada a reference point for the funk scene worldwide and a force to be reckoned with.
