IMOM: (In memory of Marvin) by Smif-N-Wessun x dFonK
In memory of Marvin… The late Marvin Gaye an inspiration to many and also to dFonK and Smif-N-Wessun. After recording the EP ‘SEASONS’ at dFonK’s studio located at the Belgian coast, dFonK and Smif-N-Wessun visited some sites where the Great Marvin used to live, sleep, eat, work out,… but more importantly did some “soul-searching”. dFonK lives just 5 minutes away from where Marvin used to live near Ostend, known as the ‘birthplace’ of Sexual Healing…
This single IMOM (In memory of Marvin) is the second song that Brooklyn based rappers Tek and Steele have recorded with Belgium’s own dFonK. The groovy beat with dope flows flow from OG’s Tek and Steele alongside a bass guitar makes you want to boogie makes this a soulful joint!
Can I get a soul clap?

dFonk was born and raised at the Belgian Coast on the 18th of July 1979. He was a well known DJ in the late 90’s in the local clubs and started producing his own original music at the age of 15. He then worked with several Belgian artists enjoying some success in the Flemish hip hop scene, producing, writing and performing at live gigs and has one Belgian top ten plaque on his wall.
In his productions you can hear various influences ranging from East Coast nineties golden era Hip Hop to contemporary music. From westside/southside hip-hop beats to alternative rock. The influences are there. It is clear that dFonK is a man who can generate and work comfortably within many styles. In 2018 dFonK started working with artists outside his country. He teamed up with Tek and Steele from the legendary duo Smif-N-Wessun – Student meets teacher! While dFonK could have been absolutely star struck, the three teamed up in November to cook up their first song ‘Seasons’, that dropped in July 2019. dFonK loves to make remixes too and one of his latest tracks caught the attention of one member of the band Mayday: rapper Wrekonize. dF’s remix of the song Moonlight Freestyle is one of Wrek’s favorite… and now IMOM, the second joint with the legends of S&W and soon… stay tuned!
