Dannic Launches Fonk Radio
Yesterday Dannic launched his new radio show, Fonk Radio! Every week he will continue to showcase his label Fonk Recordings and the best groovy, funky, big room house music. The show features some new sections compared to his old Front Of House Radio shows – a Fonk mashup of the week, a Fonk demo of the week, and a Fonk fan selection! Dannic joined us to explain the new show and the growth of the Fonk brand.
Why did you change the name of the show from Front Of House Radio to Fonk Radio?
I just wanted to have everything uniform. Otherwise, it’s too complicated for people that Dannic is Fonk Recordings, but also Front Of House. It’s going to be more logical for the people - everything unified under Fonk.
Where does the name Fonk come from?
It’s just a slang word for funky or groovy. Actually it was the name of an original song I put out on Revealed too. When you think of Dannic, people have to think about funky, groovy house and Fonk is a slang way of representing it.
Is there going to be any difference in the content of your radio show?
No, that’s actually something I’ve already changed in the past couple of months. There’s not as much progressive house anymore, just the funky, groovy stuff. The show is now really just music that I like. I think that’s really important as well so people know what to expect from the show; it has something else to offer different from other shows around.
With the change in music content, how has your music selection changed?
There are a lot of promos and a lot of demos that I get for Fonk Recordings as well as for Dannic. Sometimes the demos are just not there yet in terms of being polished enough for a release, but I really like the tracks and I want people to hear them so at times I’ll put those tracks in the show anyways. That way I have a super exclusive song and can help the producer get his name out there.
The celebration of Fonk Recordings continues next month during ADE as Dannic hosts the first ever Fonk Recordings label night. Tickets can be found here.
