Fanateek One is a French-Spanish guy based in Madrid, Spain who ‘s collecting 80′s funk gems since 2000 and produce Electro-Funk / 80′s synth-pop / 80′s Movies scores.
Since his very early age, he was interested in music, which led me to practice keyboard/synth with an old school CASIOTonebank CT-395 (with a terrific 80’s sound) and later an midi arranger keyboard (Yamaha PSR-320) much more versatile.
In high school, I started collecting 80′s Funk vinyls, which helped me to build my musical universe.
At university, under the pseudonym of “smithsmith”, I started to digg rare funky records from all over the world and diffuse them on a French student radio during a weekly show entitled “Boogie Nights“.
The head-drenched melodies, funky rhythms and accompagned by my friend Nickee B, I began composing music and learning bass.
Favorite music styles: 80′s Funk, 80′s Pop, 80′s Italo funk, 80′s Synths, Japanese pop-funk (Toshiki Kadomatsu, Miho Fujiwara, Anri, Tatsuro Yamashita, Hitomi & Keiko Tohyama…).
