Growing up with Deep House music from a young age, DJ and producer Prunk, was destined for a future behind the decks. His most memorable encounter with this sound is receiving an Ian Pooley record from his older brother on his 11th birthday. From that moment on he knew this was what he was going to be, a DJ.
A few years later Prunk started to mix records and dropped his first set on the Internet. Soon after this, he started to do some producing himself. His first remix was of the The Stafford Brother’s track, ‘I Can See’ caught the ear of Belgian Hed Kandi DJ, Tom De Neef, who subsequently played the track in his own Hed Kandi radio show, broadcast live on the net.
Triggered by this success, Prunk decided to focus more on his production work, with his tracks being picked up by Djs such as Johnny White (Art Department) and Kerri Chandler, to name a few. Gig-wise this success has also meant a move to the big clubs and festivals within the Dutch house scene.
This year he will be playing at Awakenings Fest on stage with Martin Buttrich, Fritz Kalkbrenner, John Digweed, Joris Voorn, Matthias Tanzmann and more! Also he will be playing at Sonar, the absolutely amazing festival in Barcelona every year!
His production work is steaming ahead too – after releases on Soulman Records, summer 2011 sees the highly anticipated release of his new track ‘Do It Like Us’ on Bla Bla. With such a bright and busy future ahead of him, Prunk continues to embrace the music and source his inspiration from everyday life… even the rhythm of the office air conditioner!
He also started throwing parties and the 4th of May, the first edition of BakeFish will take place at Amstelhaven!
