Fonkynson released a first EP in 2008, on the American label Super HiFi. The funky, vinyl-only release would end up selling over 2000 copies. In 2013, Fonkynson strikes again with a French house EP, this time released by the British imprint Heavy Disco. After signing to the Montreal-based label Lisbon Lux Records, Fonkynson releases the highly awaited Horny EP, which obtains a lot of attention on digital platforms, helping him reach a wider audience.
In 2016, Fonkynson released #followme, a full-length album preceded by the success of two singles, Never and Keep It Cool. The track Aquarelle quickly reached the top of Hype Machine’s chart and gained over a hundred thousand plays in a few days. Likewise, Carresse reached the top of Spotify’s viral charts.
Often appearing as a DJ next to high profile artists such as The Magician and Birdy Nam Nam, Fonkynson received attention from influential media organizations such as EDM.COM and FunkyPanda.
