Being into club music since it’s tender age, Shonky graced the decks of a club for the first time in 1998 inspired by djs like Dan Ghenacia or Ivan Smagghe as a time when serious parisian clubbers revolved around the Kwality parties at the Batofar. Since then he’s been regular in key parisian clubs like La Scene, Le Rex ou Le Nouveau Casino. His international pedigree includes Fabric in London, Panorama Bar in Berlin, Fuse in Belgium, Weetamix in Geneva. Since his first production through FreaK ‘n Chic in 2005, he has now released through Mobilee, Sub Static and Resopal. Shonky has also developed a production partnership with Jennifer Cardini including ep’s on Mobilee and his “Tuesday Paranoïa’” ep on Crosstown Rebels.

Freshly arrived at Cocoon Booking, DJ W!LD is also a Circo Loco and DC10 resident. He’s been playing at festivals such as Burning Man or Fusion (Berlin countryside), alongside the biggest names of the techno scene. You may think that Guillaume Duchastel de Montrouge, aka DJ W!LD, has arrived like a storm on the electronic music scene in 2010, but in fact, he’s already a renowned Dj and producer who made a strong come back behind the decks in the past two years. Elusive, unpredictable, underground, these adjectives could easily describe DJ W!LD. Born in 1975, his journey into music has started at the end of the 80’s in his french hometown- Dijon, where he was already immersed in a disco-funk black music environment. Guillaume was also involved in the hip-hop/graffiti street culture. He soon became popular under the name of DJ W!LD, a tribute to the motion picture “Wild style”, which draws the portrait of graffiti pioneers and includes a soundtrack of late 70’s NY Hip Hop. In the early 90’s, when techno was still considered in France as a marginal genre only promoted by a few Parisian clubs. Dj Laurent Garnier appears on the local scene in Dijon, with his regular gigs at L’Enfer spreading the first blends of electronic music in France. W!LD is immediately caught by this revolutionary trend initiated by Detroit and Chicago house and techno Godfathers, this encounter will be crucial regarding W!LD’s future musical route. W!LD settles in Paris in 1996 and gets behind the decks. He’s soon DJing in Paris’s trendiest clubs: Palace, Queen, Rex etc. and meets DJ & producer Peter Rauhofer with whom he releases the international hit “Magic Orgasm” under the name “House Heroes”- this track becomes a hit in several countries. DJ W!LD soon appears behind the decks of the famous Twilo club (Danny Tenaglia’s NYC ). His numerous trips to in NYC still influence his current sets. In 2005, he creates “Catwash”, a duet with Dj-producer Chris Carrier. The two musicians’s tracks are released on labels such as Detour, Visitor, Crack & Speed, Adult Only or Get Physical and quickly find their way into the record bags of artists like Andrew Weatherall, Ricardo Villalobos, Ritchie Hawtin or Josh Wink, to name only a few. He also launches Catwash Records, his first record label, in order to promote the duet and other artists.
