DJ Phonique

Michael Vater a.k.a Phonique moved to Berlin in the mid 90’s and was a resident DJ at King's Club in Prague, as well as in Hamburg and Berlin.

Starting out as a party organizer, where his successful parties and club nights earned him much love, paving the way for him to become one of the "nice guys" in Berlin’s nightlife scene, after a while he started to DJ himself and "DJ Phonqiue" was born.

Since January ‘98, Phonique continued to bring previously lesser known DJs and producers to Berlin for his club nights and parties, presenting many strong nights with DJs like Glen Gunner (Street Corner Symphony/Block 16), Lil Tony (Nu Spirit Helsinki/Guidance), Alexkid (F-Com/Ovum), Llorca (F-Com/Brique Rouge), Joakim (Tigersushi) or Ivan Smagghe (Blackstrobe/Volga Select).

In the meantime, PHONIQUE continued to develop his "freestyle" profile. His guests were treated to a splendid mix from Hip-Hop via Breakbeats to Old School and Drum‘n’Bass. Just about anything was possible in between, as long as the tracks had the necessary "type of groove".

Think had a chance to meet up with him in Prague and got his take on the scene here and life back home and on the road.

THINK: You were resident DJ at King's Club in Prague back in the day, as well as in Berlin. What & where else are you playing?

PHONIQUE: When I'm here in Prague, I like to play electro/breakbeat influenced house music, but I've also deejayed French disco house at parties or in clubs in Paris and Brussels.

I also play regularly all over the world, mostly hip-hop influenced freestyle house, playing clubs in Sao Paulo, Helsinki, Paris, London, Marseille, Vienna, Brussels, San Francisco, Prague, Tel Aviv, just to name a few destinations. But I've never forgot my Berlin base! (You can catch his schedule at ResidentAdvisor).

THINK: How did it happen, that Kingsclub took place here in Prague at Radost FX?

PHONIQUE: On my first trip to Prague in 1993, one of my nights ended at Radost FX and I really loved the club. Then in '98, I met Phonique, who organized the King's Club here, at a party in Paris, and the idea was born.

THINK: How is the nightlife in Berlin?

PHONIQUE: Berlin is really great. There are some really good clubs like the The 305, Cookies, or the K-Star for hip hop and freestyle.

You can go out every night and choose between so many styles like house, drum and bass, electro, jazzbeats, hip hop, big beats, dub sounds or reggae.

By the way, the whole nightlife takes place in the East Side of Berlin.

THINK: What are your future plans?

PHONIQUE: I only want to do those things I like. I'm writing for some magazines and I'm trying to get some good artists to Berlin and maybe to Prague. I started producing my own tracks. And I stopped playing for big commercial, stupid parties.

I prefer to play a few times a month, but at really good parties, like in Prague. Because here in Prague the people are going out to dance and not for showing off. And Prague is such a romantic city.
