Music Labels

I've been running Music labels issuing House Music and Disco on Vinyl and digital since 2013.

Disco Bizarre - new main label from 2020, releasing Disco Edits and new productions leaning towards the 70s and 80s,


Smile for a while - main label 2013...19, releasing stuff of young & talented producers, remixed by well-known artists like Move D, Borrowed Identity, Tuff City Kids, Soulphiction, etc.

All That Jelly - mainly a reissue label for clubby, upbeat House Music, inspired by Chicago and NY.



Disco Bizarre

Disco Bizarre happens every week at KitKat's "Carneball Bizarre" parties. Every Saturday our hosts DJ Himself, Billy Idle, HOVR & Mr. Fonk are inviting local and international guest DJs for some 70s and 80s-flavoured Dance action.

The parties have started in 2018 and have gained a cult following ever since.

Guest acts included Conchita Wurst, Daniel Wang, Alexander Robotnick, Ramon Zenker, Tyler Pope and many more.



Short Bio English:

Mr. Fonk made his ferst steps behind the wheels of steel 20 years ago in his hometown Nuremberg. He played at a lot of venues like "Der Hirsch", "ZOOM", or "Club nano." In 2001 he teamed up with some locals to form a soundsystem, doing legal & illegal parties in clubs, offlocations and in the open air. In 2005 he moved on to Frankfurt. There he played in almost every club, like U60311, MTW, Lido, Cantina or Tanzhaus West. After years of DJing he teamed up with D.Soul in 2011 to form a party collective called "Smile for a while." After countless parties with guests like Move D, I:Cube and Borrowed Identity the guys decided to form a label releasing vinyl records of their friends' productions. In 2015 Mr. Fonk made the move to Berlin, playing and hosting parties in clubs like Loftus Hall, Renate, about blank, Chalet Farbfernseher and Paloma Bar. 2018/19 he then made his way into the notorious KitKat Club, quickly becoming a resident DJ at "Disco Bizarre" and "Revolver."

 

Mr. Fonk is an oldschool DJ, living on his excessive record collection, playing out positive emotions by blurring the lines between House, Disco and Techno.  Dance Music as a subculture, as a modern Hippie utopia - that's where his DJ sets are taking us.


Short Bio German:

Mr. Fonk hat seine ersten DJ-Schritte vor knapp 20 Jahren in Nürnberg gemacht. Neben gigs in Hirsch, Zoom oder dem Club nano war er Teil des "Groundlift Soundsystem", einer freischaffenden Partycrew aus dem Raum Ansbach. 2005 ging er nach Frankfurt wo er in allen wichtigen Clubs gespielt und veranstaltet hat wie z.B. U60, MTW, Lido, Tanzhaus West. 2011 hat er dort mit D.Soul das Partykollektiv "smile for a while" gegründet, das 2013 auch als Vinyl label, für aufstrebende House Produzenten aus FFM, an den Start ging. 2015 kam schließlich der Wechsel nach Berlin wo er die Loftus Hall, Renate, Chalet, Paloma und andere Clubs bespielt hat, bevor er resident DJ im berüchtigten "kitkat Club" wurde, bei "Disco Bizarre" und "Revolver."

Mr. Fonk ist ein DJ der alten Schule der von seiner exzessiven Plattensammlung lebt, positive Emotionen liebt und die Grenzen zwischen House, Disco und Techno immer wieder verschwimmen lässt. Tanzmusik als Subkultur, als moderne Hippieutopie - seine DJ-sets führen uns auf eine Reise dorthin...
