In his 17-year career as DJ and producer, Phil Fuldner has made himself a
name as an international house act. With his fascinating and innovative DJ
sets, he has gained a special reputation among clubbers and DJ colleagues.
The style of his DJ sessions, which frequently take several hours, covers
all kinds of house music, progressive techhouse up to funk, hip hop or rare
eightie sounds. More often than not, his DJ sets are topped by spontaneous
live vocals by the fully trained singer Phil Fuldner!
Its his all-round talent that makes him a much sought-after artist at
special events such as the MTV Fashion Awards, Formula 1 Party for Becks in
Monaco, numerous aftershow parties (MTV, Viva, etc.).
Nor is he a stranger in front of the camera, first as a model for Levis,
Caterpillar etc. and later as a presenter of programmes such as MTV-Select
Above all, however, Phil Fuldner sees himself as a house or club DJ (The
atmosphere in a really good club can hardly be compared to anything
else...). Hes followed this through with appearances at countless
international discotheques (Space / Amnesia / Pacha / el Divino, Ibiza /
Stars & Bars, Monaco / Kaufleuten, Zurich / Eden, Bangkok / Sage Club,
Berlin / Flamingo, Essen ...) and raves (Love Parade / Nature One / Time
Warp / Energy Street Parade, Zurich / Electric Workshop, Johannesburg /
WMC, Miami ...).
This passion and belief in music brought Phil Fuldner together with Moguai
back in 1995. Their first success was the real breakthrough of the producer
team Fuldner & Moguai: In 1998, they landed their first Top Ten hit with
Phil Fuldners The Final The Captain Future Theme (Single Charts No. 7!).
Further productions (for Virgin / Ministry of Sound / Kosmo / Eastwest /
Positiva / Additive, among others) strengthened the duos international
reputation. Initially intended as club tracks, the releases under Dial M
for Moguai (e.g. Beatbox) entered the singles charts Top 40 or became club
classics (Bang the Drum / Phil Fuldner Works You cant fight what you feel.
Fuldner & Moguai quickly became much sought-after remixers of acts and
artists such as Santos Timo Maas (Orinoko-Island) Luzon (Yoshi Toshie)
Harry Choo Choo Romero (Bambossa / Subliminal) Artfull Doger / Melanie
Blatt (All Saints) BBE Cosmic Baby Giorgio Moroder / Freddy Mercury, etc.
Pete Tong (Radio One, UK) chose Moguais remix of Timo Maas production
Island as Essential Tune of the Month. Particularly in England, productions
by Fuldner & Moguai can be found on all major compilations (e.g. The Annual
/ Headliners / World Famous DJs / Clubbers Guide to Ibiza ...).
The PUNX label is the most recent baby of the multi talented team. With its
first release Moguai pres. PUNX The Rock, the PUNX label set a milestone
for innovative sounds. Even prior to the vinyl record being released, The
Rock, including mixes by Corvin Dalek and Jan Driver, was licensed on to
Eastwest Records. The second release u Know Y (with a Si Begg remix) sold
over 10000 copies in Germany alone, making it club hit of the year.
Licensed to Hope Recordings in the UK, the track took just 3 weeks to reach
the number one spot in the prestigious Cool Cuts chart.
Since May 2001, Phil Fuldners latest release Phil Fuldner Works 2 Miami
Pop, a mixture of house and miami bass elements, has been a great success
in international clubs and has already entered the TOP 40 of the German
Media Control Charts.
Hot on the heels of the PUNX label success story comes POLO REC., Phils own
progressive house label. Release Nr.1: ` Blagger`s World - ..1` was
released in April 2002 with remixes by Ian Pooley, Vincenzo, Gianni Bini
and Phil Fuldner himself.
Like its elder brother PUNX, POLO REC. was conceived as a platform for
artists and tracks which go beyond the conventional and ordinary.
Phil Fuldners last single `Phil Fuldner Works 2 - Miami Pop`, a mixture ofs
House and Miami Bass sounds, hit the international club scene from May 2001
onwards, as well as bursting into the Top 30 singles charts in Germany.
The GDA (German Dance Award) crew liked `Miami Pop so much, they invited
Phil to perform at the GDA Gala (along with Matthias Schaffhäuser, Kosheen,
Tok Tok vs. Sophie O), sharing the vocal and rap duties with `Loco Dice.
Since November 2002, Phil has become part of the Eins Live Radio family,
presenting a monthly `Eins Live Clubbing` session on a Friday night. Guests
to date include: Turntablerocker, Tiefschwarz, Joni Rewind
The Moguai single, `U know Y, co-written & produced by Phil, was the
biggest track at Mayday 2002. Over 10,000 copies were sold on vinyl,
earning Moguai & Phil the Discomania Sales Award 2002. U Know Y spent 7
weeks at the top of the DDC charts and was licensed to Kosmo (Germany) and
Hope Recordings (UK, USA).
In Germany it was the best selling vinyl dance track of the year, reaching
.. 35 in the charts.
For the past three years, Fuldner and Moguais music production has gone
under the name M.S.I., mad support international. The name suits their
musical vision, launching the sound of their Ruhr area into the world
Phil is a fully trained singer, hence it is his voice you can hear on his
new single(he wrote the lyrics too), breaking down the barrier between club
and pop music, as `Miami Pop` did a couple of years ago. Moguai has
similarly managed to combine club culture and mass appeal with tracks like
`U know Y` and `get:on`. Productions for the Sugababes (as Moguai) and
Vanessa (as Fuldner) show how comfortable they are in treading the line
between both worlds. More than a few international labels and artists have
recognized Phil and Moguais talent in this respect, leading to remix and
production work for international club / pop projects.
