In music, one hit record is lucky. Two? That's talent. And the talent everyone is talking about at the moment is fresh faced Frenchman Shonky. But with over 50,000 tracks in the Beatport database, how does a modern electronic music artist distinguish himself? For Parisian techno and house producer, DJ and remixer, Shonky the answer is simple. He took his profound passion for making music and created a signature sound, delivered a few solid EPs, topped the charts, landed a nice place with a 'few' big labels, moved to Berlin, & spun in the hottest euro Tech clubs and . . . Voila !
Incredibly, music was a second-choice career for the 30-year-old. Originally studying mathematics and statistics for five years. "I was supposed to get a job in a bank" -- he grins. But as a dedicated club-goer since his teens, the lure of electronic music and culture proved too strong. Shonky bought a pair of decks though he admits he had no idea what to do with them at first. He picked up many of his tips at Dan Ghenacia's infamous Batofar after parties, where he struck up a friendship with Dan, Dyed, and the rest of the Freak n' Chic crew and the rest is history.
