Info o umelcovi Mr. Fonk
Mr. Fonk was born in Nuremberg / Germany in 1979 and soon came in touch with the music of the 80s: Wave, new romantic, Italo disco but also genuine radio pop began inspiring him. His love for music started to strengthen through the house and techno movement during the 1990s. This special subculture was exactly what he always had been looking for. Regularly visiting clubs like mach 1 in Nuremberg, Ultraschall in Munich, U60311 in Frankfurt or Stammheim in Kassel, this pleasure grew deeper. By the year of 2000 he made his first steps behind the turntables.
Between 2001 and 2005 he was playing gigs throughout Germany – for example at Harry Klein in Munich, ARM in Kassel, Hirsch and Zoom Club in Nuremberg, Orange in Stuttgart or Kunstwerk in Cologne, just to name a few. In 2005 he decided to make a new beginning in Frankfurt. There, he played at almost all the small and big clubs such as U60311, MTW, Tanzhaus West, Silbergold, Rockmarket, Ruderclub, LIDO, etc.
Still living in Frankfurt Mr. Fonk started the Smile for a while party series in 2011 together with his partner in crime, D.Soul. Their parties at well-known clubs, illegal open airs and off-location raves saw gigs of innovative international acts like I:Cube, Vakula, Move D, Iron Curtis, Anonym, and many more. The next step was to establish an own label, releasing music of long term friends but also young newcomers from Frankfurt. Since the start of the label Smile for a while in 2013, remixes and tracks of acts like Johannes Albert, Monosoul, Iron Curtis, Borrowed Identity and Janis have been released.
Mr. Fonk’s versatile, genre-crossing sound reflects his passion for music. For him, DJing is not about playing hits en masse or copying the latest musical trends. It is about providing a challenging, timeless listening and dancing experience for the audience. His sets are taking the crowd on a journey, into sound, time and space, featuring pumping house music, straight techno, funky disco and more likely, everything in between.
in August 2015, Mr. Fonk moved to Berlin.
