Shonky demonstrates his supreme talents with one of his strongest releases to date, this time for one of his base labels, Contexterrior, delivering four luscious house gems on ‘Les Shonkettes’. ‘Les Shonkettes’ is typical of Shonky… A heavy dose of hypnotic groove, sharp beats and a pinch of cheekiness give his productions unique character and style. The title track is a fast paced house cut harking back to early days with stark piano stabs and echoes of soprano melodies, brought up to date with high standard production techniques. Still using a vintage sound, ‘Crapulerie’ is hypnotic and seductive in its approach, taking a darker and slower angle with its central rumbling bassline. In much the same way the loops of ‘Obelix’ entangle the listener in a swaying rhythm of vocal cries and spellbinding sounds. ‘Conquistador’ is the last sibling to this package, the final curtain glistening with charm and alight with pleasure. This is Shonky at his best, twisting and turning to eternally surprise with his technique. The young Frenchmen Shonky has been producing house music for the last few years to great acclaim especially through his debut album on Freak n’Chic ‘Time Zero’, as well as countless productions on pioneering labels such as Spectral Sound, Crosstown Rebels and Mobilee. Incredibly, music was a second-choice career for the 26-year-old who studied mathematics and statistics for five years. “I was supposed to get a job in a bank,” he grins. But the lure of electronic music and culture proved too strong. He picked up many of his tips at Dan Ghenacia’s infamous Batofar after-parties, where he struck up a friendship with Dan, Dyed Soundorom, and the rest of the Freak n’ Chic crew. Inspired by pioneering deep house figures such as Gemini and Kerri Chandler, Shonky has dubbed his own innovative style of mixing, writing and producing, a new sound that reveals sonically groovier house dimensions infused with stronger vocal representation.
