Filsonik

Filsonik

Filsonik is the latest DJ / producer to have grown out of the hugely lively NYC house community. Hailing from the Lower East Side, he grew up on hip hop, latin disco, and reggae music.

He was schooled from age seven as a classical pianist and as such his influences are both street and formal. His childhood neighbors were John Mateo and Eddie Matos and his first experience of house music was with them in the early 90s when they asked him to play sessions keys on one of their early tracks. Filsonik is a true renaissance man and brings many different artistic influences into his craft.

Since’ 06 he joined the Objektivity crew and has been working with his mentor the ‘King Of The Underground’, Dennis Ferrer, and label mates The Martinez Brothers. In ‘09 Filsonik teamed up with fellow musician DJ /producer Patrick Grooves to design a digital music label called Gran Manzana records. Since then they have been collecting a unique selection of releases from different producers around the world. Here’s a few familiar names of artists who will be developing the “GM” sound: The Martinez Brothers, Argy and Sascha Dive.
