Interview with Fonkynson


What does Montreal inspire you?

Fonkynson : Montreal is for me the perfect city, where there is a pleasant balance between chill and effervescence. Give me 10 months of summer and I’ll be even happier.


How would you describe your music?

Fonkynson : Being French, the French touch rocked my adolescence, my original sensitivity is there. But when I came to live in Montreal, it greatly influenced my sound, and today I would say that it has become a French house that would have gotten in tune with Beat Makers’ urban styles.


Your ritual before you go on stage?

Fonkynson : I’m gonna get myself a couple of drinks, cause then I’m stuck


What music do you listen to motivate yourself?

Fonkynson : Gonna fly now by Bill Conti.

… and to chill during summer?

Fonkynson : Kali Uchis


Memories of your musical career?

Fonkynson : I was playing at night for Bassbus night and they picked me up at the Calgary airport in a buffalo horned limousine, like in the Dallas series.


2 artists you would advise us to follow?

Fonkynson : Tregs and Pat Lok


Any word for your MEG 2018 audience?

Fonkynson : A big love for your support and we will do everything to spoil your ears as necessary.
