M.U.M & FLOW:MNGMNT Proudly Presents "Miami Sessions with F.Sonik-M.U.M Episode 122

Rod B. & Alvaro Garfunk bring you the Miami Underground Movement

F.SONIK   The name of F.Sonik continuously pops up on the wish lists of electronic music aficionados in the region. Launching career with the Ghettotek live-act, later joining SDJF initiative and Flow Management, he already established himself as an unique deejay who is not afraid of such challenges as combining Slovenia's landmark techno heritage with some progressive spices. He already transferred some of this who-dares-wins spirit in his own productions, Something New (ft. Tomy DeClerque) being the most successful so far. This track, which immediately gained support of Umek and was already played on BBC Radio 1, predicts the series of fresh releases in 2008. So you better watch out for this guy! Aleš Furlan alias F.Sonik became involved in electronic dance culture on account of one very innocent occurrence in his youth. And it’s a sole fault of his brother that he ended taming the decks, mixers and effects night after night. “It all started when he brought home some studio mixer and Akai sampler,” remembers F.Sonik “Just a few days later I knew I wanted to produce electronic and become a deejay and I was hooked ever since. I started gathering information about the scene, artists, clubs, music and the whole electronic movement. Living on the Slovenian Riviera it was natural to be influenced by Ambasada Gavioli club as I started attending Valentino Kanzyani’s matinees and performances of leading electronic artists on the regular basis.” It was his friend Alessio who helped him with the first steps: "He was caught by this bug well before me, so he already learned to mix and could thought me a thing or two. I still remember how I use to hang out at his parents house everyday struggling to beat-match the records. And after I started performing he even lent me his records." Shortly after that they teamed up for the live performances. "We've named ourselves Ghettotek. Alessio was mixing the records and I was in charge of putting in some effects. This way I got to perform in most of the hip Slovenian clubs even before my solo career really took off."

Thriving on a strong and globally accomplished techno heritage Slovenian electronic scene is still heavily directed by techno. But being influenced by the Global Underground music philosophy F.Sonik dared to go where only a few artists in the region dared before him – he decided he will combine the techno heritage with melodic progressive sounds: "Even Umek was there somewhere, but as he was pure techno deejay back then and I was more into progressive stuff, it were the likes of Sasha, Deep Dish and Steve Lawler that have inspired me the most," admits the young artist.

F.Sonik successfully transferred his unique vision of dance music, built on techno and blended with some emotionally rich proggy landscapes, into his own tunes. As a producer he gained the most attention with the track titled Something New, which he produced in collaboration with his musical guru Tomy DeClerque. “We’ve connected really good in the studio, so it was a really good feeling when Umek supported our first track including it in his Essential Mix even before it was officially released. That really inspired us and we already work on a bunch of new tracks,” announces F.Sonik...F.SONIK
