Growing up in France, Fonkynson was greatly influenced by his father’s music – the iconic sound of artists such as Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones. His interest started shifting as he developed a taste for electronic music styles such as house, drum ‘n’ bass and techno, a passion which would bring him to produce his own material. Fonkynson released a first EP in 2008, on the American label Super HiFi and in 2013, he strikes again with a French house EP, this time released by the British imprint Heavy Disco. After signing to the Montreal-based label Lisbon Lux Records, Fonkynson releases the highly awaited Horny EP, which obtains a lot of attention on digital platforms, helping him reach a wider audience. In 2016, Fonkynson released #followme, a full-length album preceded by the success of two singles, ‘Never’ and ‘Keep It Cool’. The track ‘Aquarelle’ quickly reached the top of Hype Machine’s chart and gained over a hundred thousand plays in a few days.
