Hi Frankie and welcome to DMC World, where are we speaking to you from today?
Hello DMC World. I’m very pleased and thank you very much for having me. Today I’m sitting in the studio and currently writing a new song.
Congratulations on your new single No Stress with Raul Perez. How did this one come about? How was it reworking Laurent Wolf’s influential record?
Previously, I heard the song and very often played it as a DJ in the club, because the song for me brings a great energy and a positive vibe. Last year my wife came to me after hearing the song from Laurent Wolf – No Stress on the radio and she had the idea that I should record a new version. So I locked myself in my studio and worked all night. That’s how the project “No Stress” was born.
How did you get into music production?
As a child, I was already very enthusiastic about music and I had tried a lot at that time. In my teenage years I also played in a band as a drummer.
When I turned 18, I discovered a passion for DJing, but in the years that followed I became more and more interested in my own music production.
What is the music scene like in your hometown?
My city is currently dominated by the techno and deep house scene with many cool underground clubs with great international acts. In recent years, more and more EDM parties and festivals take place with the most famous DJs, which makes me very happy and among other things to see my colleagues again.
What are the best venues you have played?
Well, unfortunately it’s difficult to mention the best gig, but in my DJ career I could experience a lot of great and unforgettable gigs and I’m looking forward to the further time to come.
Your releases have been supported by the likes of Tiësto, Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell and Dannic. How does it feel getting support from some of the world’s most celebrated artists?
To be supported by the legends like Tiësto, Fedde Le Grand, Hardwell, Dannic ect, was and is an indescribable feeling. At the beginning I could never have imagined and dreamed of it.
It was very special when I saw the big acts at parties or festivals and suddenly they play your own tracks. It was for me the confirmation that I am on the right track.
What other releases or shows do you have coming up?
Currently I am until the end of the year on my tour and am currently working on various and exciting projects.
There will be a lot more to come. Check out my social platforms, there you are always up to date.
If you could collaborate with any other producer or artist, who would it be and why?
There are many great artists, such as Tiësto, Matroda and Alesso, with whom I would like to work together to learn from their skills and experience. Let’s see where my journey leads and what will happen in the future.
Any venues you haven’t played that you would like to play next year?
At the moment I have received some requests for the new year 2023. For the coming season, I am still planning with my team and we hope that I can perform at most events.
Any last words for our readers?
Thank you again for this interview, it has pleased me very much. I also thank you for this great support that I receive daily from all sides and look forward to meeting you in person at a gig.
Stay tuned! Frankie
Thanks for speaking to us today, Frankie! All the best with the release.
