Frankie Rizardo / Guest Dj
Franky Rizardo – DJ, producer, label boss. The young artist continues to prove himself as one of Holland’s finest exports in House music, demonstrating a solid production career with releases spanning a collection of top labels, including a long term relationship with Defected Records, whilst 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 recognisable 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 own works, alongside supporting emerging artists from Holland’s underground house scene. The label has already hosted a string of quality releases since it’s inception and continues to push the FLOW sound throughout 2017.
Not one to shy away from the studio, Franky has continued to develop his trademark sound, with his hard work having paid off in the past year with successful releases on Defected Records, Nic Fanciulli’s seminal Saved Records and Yousef’s Circus recordings, as well stepping up to mix the prestigous Defected In The House mix series at the start of 2017, which included exclusive originals, remixes and edits from the young producer.
There are no signs of stopping the Dutch-man, with a gig diary nearly hitting triple digits this year his versatility and refreshing sound has toured him across the planet. His commitment and passion to the music he plays has 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.
It is this determination and respect for his craft that has propelled Franky to steadily become one of house music’s most dynamic individuals.
