IGOR GONYA

Igor Gonya was born in 1986 in the village of Troitskoye, which is a dozen kilometers from Elista, the capital of the Republic of Kalmykia. From a very early age he developed a passion for British electronic music culture, in particular, the work of such groups as The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack, and Fatboy Slim. In 2014 Igor moved to the Moscow region where he commenced his career as a sound producer and began to create music in earnest. During the same year, Igor became a resident and guest mix manager for the Belarusian radio show Time 2 House, which was broadcasted on the FM radio station ONT in Minsk and Novopolotsk.
In the process of creating his own music and exploring the global electronic scene, Igor considered launching his own label. In 2015 this dream became a reality and Lisztomania Records was born, with its roster dominated by Deep House and House music. That same year, the label launched the hour-long Lisztomania Records radio show on ibizaliveradio.com radio, which was broadcasted in eight cities across Spain: quite an accomplishment for what was then a fledgling label. After a year of hard work and determination, the label started to receive support from the American online music store Traxsource, and slowly but surely Lisztomania began to feature on many of the Traxsource feature pages, as well as in user and official charts alike. Furthermore, Lisztomania tracks regularly made it into the top Traxsource sales positions, receiving support from such luminaries of the house music arena as Steve Bug, Spiritchaser, Low Steppa, Shur-I-Kan and Homero Espinosa.
Over time, Igor’s musical horizons expanded, and he developed the idea of creating a new imprint aimed at releasing more old-school sounds infused with disco and funk motifs. As a result, the Sundries label was born. After nine digital releases, the first vinyl release from the Austrian musician gutinstinct was printed with a circulation of two hundred copies, receiving noteworthy praise and support from the Russian edition of Mixmag. Sundries tracks regularly fall into the rotation of notable Moscow radio station Megapolis FM and find a place in the mixes of many musicians of the Russian house music scene: Cream Soda, Street Choice, Quadrakey. At the time of writing, there are currently four vinyl releases in the Sundries piggy bank, as well as two on Lisztomania Records and roughly five more awaiting release.
Remaining passionate about creating new house music while also working extensively on himself, Igor has released a number of digital releases on more than fifty labels worldwide, including (but not limited to) Fogbank (USA), i! Records, (USA) Moulton Music (USA), Plastik People (USA), Soulgrab Records (USA), Sub_Urban (Spain), Gents & Dandy's (Belgium), and Fade To Funk (United Kingdom).
In July 2019, Igor released two more vinyl records within close succession: the first was "Summer Sample 2019" on Canadian imprint Gemini Wax Records with the song "Mellifluous", a track born from a collaboration with renowned American producer Jesusdapnk and Serbian producer Frikardo. The second vinyl release, entitled "Funk Purpose Vol. 2/1," is a track from Raw Slavs (Igor Gonya & Frikardo). The disc was released with a circulation of four hundred copies on the Italian label Samosa Records and was premiered on Mixmag Russia to considerable praise. This year, he released vinyl on Tropical Disco. Two more records are expected from Igor: one other on Iner’s label - Dobro and the other on Mexican imprint Super Spicy Records.
