There is an emerging Palm Beach collective of talented MC’s that have been running musical mayhem. Dj Fono is the eye of this storm. His company Roundabout Records has been behind the production of many of our local talents including Dino Ferrari, J Saavy, Cat Shell and many more.
But Fono is not a just a DJ; he is a musical entrepreneur and has been blessed by a keen sense of the hustle. He makes his rounds down the east contour of our gun shaped state, lighting life on the dance floors of many of our favorite local venues. One may say it’s in his blood, and one may be right. Fono’s father was a DJ who passed down the finger cutting genes to his two sons. Early on in his childhood Fono was groomed for music. While most 16 year olds were scrubbing toilets at McDonald’s, Fono was already getting his DJ career started working for an audio-mixing company in Boca Raton known as R&R Dj’s. A lover of beats and sound, DJ Fono brilliantly pounds away silence with his repertoire of Hip-Hop, Dancehall Reggae, Drum & Bass, Electro-House, Dubstep, Funk and Soul.
CSKA, one of Fono’s latest progenies has now hit the streets with a new single “Drop Down” which has the astute producer’s electro funk grooves all over it like fingerprints in a crime scene.
