Different Language welcomes Parisian techno and house producer Olivier Ducreux aka Shonky.

In music, one hit record is lucky. Two? That's talent. And the talent everyone is talking about at the moment is fresh faced Frenchman Shonky. But with over 50,000 tracks in the Beatport database, how does a modern electronic music artist distinguish himself? For Parisian techno and house producer, DJ and remixer, Shonky the answer is simple. He took his profound passion for making music and created a signature sound, delivered a few solid EPs, topped the charts, landed a nice place with a "few" big labels, moved to Berlin, & spun in the hottest euro Tech clubs and voila!

"In music, one hit record is lucky. Two? That's talent. And the talent everyone is talking about at the moment is fresh faced Frenchman Shonky..."

Indeed his natural aptitude for producing was immediately evident with releases like Let Me Ask U and his remix of Mlle Caro & Franck Garcia's Far Away. Back in 2007 every underground club was echoing to the sounds of Olympia - a slab of panoramic techno that seemed to have been custom-engineered at the bottom of the sea; Or dancing to his massive remix of Danton Eeprom's All I Can Say, and he was piling up serious air miles with his increasingly hectic DJ schedule. In 2008, Shonky took another bold leap forward by releasing his first full-length album Time Zero. More than a haphazard assortment of tracks, Time Zero is blended together with a common theme: getting your groove on at a party and the art of celebrating life.

We may never know what Shonky's moniker means, but we certainly know the sound and among those clamoring for his services, are clubs like DC10, Space, Zoo Project in Ibiza; Goa Madrid, Mac arena Beach Barcelona; Techno parade, Rex Club, Paris; mulletover, Fabric London, Bar27 Amsterdam, Berliner clubs Panoramabar, Der visionnaer & Watergate, Pollerwiesen Dusseldorf, Harry Klein Munchen; Arma 17 Moscow; Kazantip Festival; Australian Ambar; La huaka Peru; Playa Del Carmen's festival in Mexico & Hollywood's famous Avalon Club to name but a few.
