From the start Phonic Funk was inspired by the Funk. The Motown sound from mom & dad’s music collection appeared to be determining for Phonic Funk’s musical preferences. While collecting music his preferences got more specific and around his 14th Phonic Funk started his own small drive-inn show. Friends, family and strangers could now meet the driven artist.
After the period of ‘DAP’ turntables and Discmans the time was born to handle things more serious. Two Pioneer CD-players were bought so that it became possible to test own material. After the generally known ‘Bedroom period’ the most satisfying mixes were spread to get clubs and organizers interested.
The Phonic Funk debut followed quickly at an illegal party organized by a friends organization. Step by step the Phonic Funk career and style evolved. Automatically the decision followed to give full dedication to house music.
In the meanwhile Phonic Funk had the honor to perform with the likes of John Acquaviva, Roog, Laidback Luke and Fedde Le Grand. This at recognized venues such as ‘De Winkel van Sinkel and ‘De Lichtfabriek’.
To develop himself Phonic Funk has also devoted himself to the producing side of Music. Relatively quick this resulted in winning The Netherlands’ largest producer contest ‘Vinylized’. Phonic Funk can already be found in track lists from producers like Laidback Luke, Hardsoul and Jon Julius Knight to name a few.. Today Phonic Funk represents a warm sound filled with soul. Armed with CD players and a bag of enthusiasm Phonic Funk turns every dance floor into a sunny destination!
