DJ Tonka (2007)

DJ Tonka (* 24. Juni 1973 in Mainz), mit bürgerlichem Namen Thomas-René Gerlach, ist ein House-DJ, Musikproduzent und Komponist. Bekannt wurde er 1998 durch seinen Sommerhit She Knows You, der Platz 14 in den Charts erreichte.

Werk[Bearbeiten]

Die ersten Veröffentlichungen Gerlachs erschienen im Jahre 1991, damals zusammen mit Ian Pooley unter den Projektnamen T’N’I, Space Cube und Outrage oder auch solo unter dem Pseudonym Thomastic.

Diese ersten Produktionen (ab 1991) erschienen auf dem Frankfurter Underground Label Force Inc. Music Works und Intense Records.

Von 1997 bis 2000 betrieb er das Label Uplifting Records, von 2000 bis 2002 Chip Tunes und von 2000 bis 2004 Vivienne Records, vorwiegend mit eigenen Releases. Neben seinen Eigenproduktionen kann DJ Tonka auch eine beachtliche Zahl von Remixen vorweisen.

Im Jahre 2008 verlegte DJ Tonka seinen Wohnsitz nach München.
