Phuq is an English producer of wonky - an experimental blend of breakcore, gabber, IDM and various other styles of electronic music.

Born in 1983 in Essex, England, he is currently based in London.

Phuq started to produce improvised industrial music and noise music under the moniker Destroy All Girls (and various anagrams of this name) in around 1995. From 2000–2004, he produced more melodic/traditionally structured, experimental electronic music (amongst many other pseudonyms) as Kesaraporn Duangsawan. In 2004, he started producing harder, more breakcore/squat party-influenced tracks under the name Phuq and has also occasionally collaborated with lo-fi musician and audio-visual artist Shortfacedbear, as Meme.

Phuq has founded several independent record labels – Next Step (2000–2004), Bad Sekta (2005–present) and Elfkore (2006) and has also released music under various pseudonyms for the labels Bad Sekta, Bit Crusher, Elfkore, Love Love, Munchkin, Next Step and Sociopath. He also initiated a small publishing imprint, Twenty Third in 2009, covering "matters of subcultural interest", as well as writing for various independent publications.

Phuq has long held close ties to the UK Free Party scene, irregularly performing on several, mainly London & Essex-based, rigs. He often appears on the London based Internet radio stations Ill FM and Pitchless Radio.
