TRUE HOUSE STORIES W/ PHIL FULDNER
Phil Fuldner interview podcast hosted by Lenny Fontana # 118 - True House Stories®
One of Germany’s longest-serving DJs and producers, Phil Fuldner is a Kosmonaut. In other words, he belongs to that elite group of performers — such as Tom Novy, Eniac, and DJ Moguai — who’ve signed on with Germany’s ultra hip Kosmo Records label. Fuldner first hit the big time in 1997 thanks to the single “The Final” — a remake of the old “Captain Future Hymn.”
A massive success on dance charts all over Europe, the release was a tandem effort with DJ Moguai, with whom Fuldner has had a long association dating back to the pre-Kosmo times.
In 1998, he had a go at covering the retro-classic “S-Express” — the theme to the S-Express TV show — and the result was yet another dance chart topper in Germany. During the next couple of years, Fuldner was busy in the studio producing and remixing a host of popular compilation albums, working with such big names as Timo Maas, Judge Jules, and Yves Deruyter.
Biography Phil Fuldner
DJ legend, hit producer, acclaimed singer and 360° creative: Phil Fuldner – internationally renowned star DJs since two decades now – is tirelessly travelling from gig to gig all year round. As a producer and songwriter for big time pop acts he has been awarded several gold and platinum records and his early hits like “The Final – Captain Future Theme” or “Miami Pop” are already classics in the Hall of Fame of electronic club and dance music.
Phil has been in front of the camera as a model for brands such as Adidas, Levi’s or Caterpillar as well as a presenter for MTV Select or MTV Alarm, and although the trained singer has been accompanied by the 50-strong Philharmonie NRW orchestra as a soloist, this man’s versatility can hardly be outdone:
With amazing ease and flair Ibiza Dance Award winner Phil Fuldner plays club gigs in Berlin’s Watergate, Pacha or Amnesia on Ibiza, Space Miami, Dubai or London’s Printworks from his two home locations Berlin and Düsseldorf, as well as the most dazzling corporate events and aftershow parties: MTV Awards, Formel1 Monaco, Berlinale Firmpreis, Anton Corbijn Vernissage, Red Bull Air Race, Vogue Paris, Dom Perignon Luminous Nights – LVMH, Hugo Boss @ Fashion Week, Porsche, OMR Hamburg, Cine Prix in Zurich or the Deutsche Digital Award to name just a few.
His unique blend of House, Tech and Disco has made him one of Germany’s most sought-after DJs, and his instinct for the right sound at the right moment – the “Fuldner Faktor” – is almost legendary. Since summer 2018 Phil is also a member of the worldwide acclaimed Glitterbox (Defected) Ibiza family. Together with his colleague and buddy Mousse T. he is the official German ambassador of the internationally high-flying party brand.
Phil’s activities are clearly crowned by his own party series “Phil’s Licks”. From its roots at the notorious Hotel Shanghai in Essen, “Phil’s Licks” has already passed an exuberant baptism of fire at some of Europe’s largest electronic music festivals.
According to his motto – combining electro headliners with crossover artists – Phil as host of his own stage invited colleagues and stars such as Palina Rojinski, Claptone, The Blessed Madonna or Giorgio Moroder for a DJ set. More and more artists from all genres are following his call as a party-impressario, and so in the last years he’s been able to enlist artists like Loco Dice, Clueso, Mousse T, Jan Delay, Beth Ditto, Boy George, Sven Väth, Butch, Heidi, PurpleDiscoMachine, Andhim, Dj Koze or Star Cook Nelson Müller for a show or a DJ set at his events. Phil is currently working on new song material that will feature many national and international guest artists.
He also regularly and successfully releases his own productions on hand-picked labels such as, Snatch!, Armada Subject, Ultra, Defected, Mother Recordings, Big Beat, Club Sweat or Get Physical Music. His music is played on countless international radio stations and streamed millions of times on Spotify.
In June 2019, Phil Fuldner’s hit single “Take Me” made it onto the official BBC Radio One playlist and remained one of the only dance tracks there for weeks, along with Peggy Gou and Avici. “Take Me” was also one of the most shazamed songs in the UK in summer 2019 and was supported by countless international top acts such as
Diplo, Purple Disco Machine, Duke Dumont, Claptone, Dombresky, Sonny Fodera, Joel Corry, Jamie Jones and many others, followed by top positions on Beatport, iTunes etc. The song was one of the title tracks of the movie “Nightlife” (German Cinema Charts No.1 – starring Frederick Lau, Palina Rojinski and Elyas M’Barek).
