dFonk was born and raised on the Belgian Coast near the city of Ostend, which incidentally is the birthplace of Marvin Gayes’ mega hit “Sexual Healing”. Dfonk saw the light of day on the 18th of July 1979.
He was a well known DJ in the late 90’s in the local clubs at the Belgian Beach and started producing his own original music at the age 15. He then worked with several Belgian artists enjoying some success in the Flemish hip hop scene, producing, writing and performing at live gigs and has one Belgian top ten plaque on his wall.
In his productions you can hear various influences ranging from East Coast nineties golden era Hip Hop to contemporary music. From westside/southside hip-hop beats to alternative rock. The influences are there. It is clear that dFonK is a man who can generate and work comfortably within many styles. In 2018 dFonK started working with artists outside his country. He teamed up with Tek and Steele from the legendary duo Smif-N-Wessun; Student meets teacher! While dFonk could have been absolutely star struck, the three teamed up in November to cook up their first song dropping in July 2019… Seasons. dFonK loves to make remixes too and one of his latest tracks caught the attention of one member of the band Mayday: rapper Wrekonize. dF’s remix of the song Moonlight Freestyle is one of Wrek’s favorite. The ongoing saga of dFonk continues.
