dFonk + Smif-N-Wessun on Spotify:
dFonk was born and raised at the Belgian Coast on the 18th of July 1979. He was a well-known DJ in the late ’90s in the local clubs and started producing his own original music at the age of 15. He then worked with several Belgian artists enjoying some success in the Flemish hip hop scene, producing, writing and performing at live gigs and has one Belgian top ten plaque on his wall.
In his productions, you can hear various influences ranging from East Coast nineties golden era Hip Hop to contemporary music. From westside/southside hip-hop beats to alternative rock. The influences are there. It is clear that dFonK is a man who can generate and work comfortably within many styles. In 2018 dFonK started working with artists outside his country. He teamed up with Tek and Steele from the legendary duo Smif-N-Wessun – Student meets teacher! While dFonK could have been absolutely star-struck, the three teamed up in November to cook up their first song ‘Seasons’, that dropped in July 2019. dFonK loves to make remixes too and one of his latest tracks caught the attention of one member of the band Mayday: rapper Wrekonize. dF’s remix of the song Moonlight Freestyle is one of Wrek’s favorite… and now IMOM, the second joint with the legends of S&W and soon… stay tuned!

The dynamic duo of Tek and Steele known as, Smif N Wessun, are survivors of the game of hip-hop. Their street slick rhymes, personal chemistry, and ability to trade the mic smoother than a Hennie and Coke are a testament to teamwork. With a fast break into success, legal trouble that forced a brief name change, and moving into the drive’s seat, from emcees to entrepreneurs, Tek and Steele have stood tall in the face of adversity as an impenetrable force.
Smif N Wessun also comprise one-quarter of the Brownsville, Brooklyn supergroup Boot Camp Clik, with Buckshot, Heltah Skeltah and O.G.C.
