Firmly established as a tastemaker in South Africa, Kid Fonque’s influence can be felt and heard in the music of the many artists he has
helped nurture with his role as label manager of Africa’s seminal dance label Soul Candi Records and now his new label Stay True Sounds.
Kid Fonque’s talent is the type that refuses to acknowledge boundaries of any kind – be they genres or borders.
The respect he is paid by the industry is a result of his no compromise attitude to playing and making music. Rather than following trends, Kid Fonque has always done things his own way. Importantly, every record he reaches for bares all the hallmarks of the Kid Fonque sound - a golden thread that ties all his sets together somehow.
Like a painter dabbing his brush into different hues, Fonque’s palette embraces everything from Bass and Broken Beats to Bossa Nova, Hip Hop and every shade of House - and with this open-minded approach, he’s been deconstructing dance floors at home and abroad for well over a decade.
