Fonia Session 60 – Daniel W. Best

Welcome to the 60th instalment of the Fonia Radio Show.
We looked for this special number for a special guest and were happy and thrilled to meet with DJ, selector, collector, artist, traveller and teddy bear doctor Daniel W. Best (bestworks) right in the center of Berlin. As this (second weird in a row) year turns slowly to an end it was our special pleasure to talk with Daniel about all those exciting, hilarious and annoying things past, present and future. As with a mix set in which you always find new things, you have not heard before and which push new doors open for you – we took a ton of insights, references and tracks from this session. So sit down, relax and enjoy two hours of crate digging filled with conversation and sounds. Again for me this all showed “Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.”

Thank you all for listening, have a great, peaceful holiday season ahead and we hope to meet all of you again in 2022!

Fonia Session 59 – Timson

We present in our show: TIMSON from Jena City alias Timson Crime. As a kid he listened to so many styles of music, his mother gave him compact discs but instead he bought a lot of vinyl. We are proud to give him two hours of space in our radio show, so enjoy various styles of beats from the guy who grew up in the Kassablanca Jena.

Big thanks to Stachy for saving this file with his professional mastering.


Fonia Session 58 – ESO!

We welcomed in our radio show: ESO! from Berlin. The artist name stands for „Das Elektronische Schwingkreis Orchester“. It is the project of composer, music producer, bass player, disc jockey and journalist Joerg Henning and sound engineer, vinyl cutter and mastering specialist Frederic Stader.


Fonia Session 57 – Zambon (The Very Polish Cut Outs)

We present in our show: ZAMBON from The Very Polish Cut-Outs. The Idea behind this label: presentation and promotion of polish 70s and 80s music all over the world through releasing different compilations, mixes and by putting it in a new context trough editing.


Fonia Session 56 – Ian Simmonds

On one of those beautiful sunny days were pigeons make out and families of foxes stroll to the next beach, we had a long-distance call with Ian Simmonds, straight out of Brighton/UK.


Fonia Session 55 – Spindyrella

In our first session after the lockdown, we welcomed IN THE STUDIO (again) Spindyrella from Leipzig! Friendly weather, friendly guests, friendly drinks and so we enjoyed a friendly chat all around mysterious record collectors, early days in zoos and many many other things!


Fonia Session 54 – kAUBL

From a small village in the Thuringian forest he conqueres the world with a taste of dub and afro beats.


Fonia Session 53 – Costa

In the last session in the year 2019, we welcomed Costa from Halle in the studio. Born in Königsee he discovered the world of music and all their styles with his first Technics HiFi System.


Fonia Session 52 – Jazz Around The World with Foolong & Inannia

The days get shorter and all around us turn a little chillier as it seems these days … Our answer: a live vinyl set in the radio studio.
