DT750 – Fouk
For Daniel Leseman & Junktion (Hans Peeman) aka Fouk, successful producers on their own merits and friends since childhood, a collaboration was inevitable. Their house sound infused with disco and a lot of funk has been proven to be very infectious.
After the infamous Detroit Swindle signed them to their Heist imprint and released the booming Kill Frenzy EP their name was established firmly to a broad and quickly growing audience. The result was requested for DJ sets across Europe, the America’s & Australia with personal highlights including Glastonbury, LoveBox, Concrete Paris, Output New York, Club Space Miami, Claire and De Marktkantine in Amsterdam.
Their first vinyl release as Fouk, on their own Outplay Records, was met with great enthusiasm, the brilliant reactions to ‘Stuff Your Dad Liked’ and ‘Cat Lady’ propelled Fouk and Outplay firmly into the scene as the ‘one to watch’. Since then they’ve released EP’s on Room With A View, The House of Disco and Razor-n-Tape and made a string of strong remixes for the likes of Kraak & Smaak, Groove Armada, The Brand New Heavies, Luke Million, Joey Negro and Mayer Hawthorne.
After ‘With Lasers EP’ on Heist in 2017 and two EP’s on Outplay Records they returned again on Heist in 2019 with Truffles EP and on The House of Disco with Release The Kraken EP featuring Thumpasaurus. The refreshed sound has been very well received and marked a new impulse of creativity in their music, which is also reflected in their DJ sets.
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Summery favourites that we can’t wait to play out again!
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
Westcoast Goddess – Home Slice, just love the fat synth vibes on this. The whole EP is amazing!
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
Our new remix for our Australian friends, Close Counters!
Tell us about your next EP?
After releasing Blue Steel EP on Heist earlier this year, with our collab with Rebiere and a fantastic Girls Of The Internet remix, we’ve just finished a 5 track EP for another super cool label. We’ve been working pretty hard on perfecting the tracks during last year up until now, and it’s the culmination of our own take on the different sides of the house spectrum we’re making music in. We’re pretty happy with the result (as it should be haha) and we can’t wait until we can share it with the world!
What have you got coming up?
Multiple remixes are coming up and the EP we mentioned above. And new original tracks are always coming up, haha. We’ve made a couple of new demo’s that we’re now tweaking and perfecting
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
That we’re so happy with people really enjoying our music, it’s what kept (and keeps) us going during the lockdowns and the whole music scene shutting down.
So we want to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks for your support ! <3
