Kid Fonque

Johannesburg, South Africa

Kid Fonque has become a vital part of South African electronic music
and club culture over the last 20 years. Uniquely accomplished in
both influence and scope, he is an over-achiever in every one of his
roles; DJ, Producer Label Owner, Promoter and more recently, Radio
Host.
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.
