Franky Rizardo – DJ, producer, label boss. The young artist continues to prove himself as one of Holland’s finest exports in dance music, demonstrating a solid production career with releases spanning a collection of top labels, including a long-term relationship with Defected Records, while continuing to push himself as a DJ with a distinctive style that works across the big stages as well as packed out clubs.
Establishing a brand is no easy feat, yet Franky’s FLOW concept continues to develop into a recognizable icon in the house music landscape. From humble beginnings as a weekly radio show on Holland’s national SLAM!FM, to international club nights and the hosting and curation of stages at the Netherlands’ hottest festivals, his work ethic knows no bounds. 2015 saw the start of his very own LTF Records - a platform intended to release his works alongside supporting emerging artists from Holland’s underground house scene. The label has hosted a string of quality releases since its inception and continues pushing the FLOW sound throughout 2016.
Not one to shy away from the studio, Franky has continued to develop his trademark sound, with his hard work already paying off this year as successful releases on both Defected Records and Simma Black, following up with a single on Defected later this year and well as originals on Nic Fanciulli’s seminal Saved Records and his very own LTF Records, while executing an array of quality remixes, including one for house legend Roger Sanchez.
There are no signs of stopping the Dutch-man; with a gig diary nearly hitting triple digits this year, his versatility and refreshing sound have toured him across the planet. His commitment and passion to the music he plays have amounted to a packed out summer diary, which sees him play across Europe at the likes of We Are FSTVL, Defected Croatia, Tomorrowland, and Mysteryland, as well as returning to Ibiza to play a summer-long residency at Sankeys’ Redlight parties.
This determination and respect for his craft have steadily propelled Franky to become one of house music’s most dynamic individuals.
