about

WHETHER AS A DJ, PRODUCER OR LABEL MANAGER, FRANCOIS X EXCELLED IN CRAFTING HIS PATRIMONY, GATHERING ALL HIS MUSICAL INFLUENCES TO FORM A UNIQUE HYBRID SOUND.

GENUINE FORERUNNER, HIS MULTIPLE EXPERIENCES AND PROJECTS OFFERED HIM A LEADING ROLE IN THE CURRENT ERA OF MUSIC.

BUILDING HIS RIPENESS FROM BEING A STRONG AND EARLY PASSIONATE OF AMERICAN HOUSE AND TECHNO, FRANCOIS X’S GENESIS IS A STORY TO BE HEARD. A RAW EDUCATION THAT HAS QUICKLY TRANSFORMED INTO AN OBSESSION FOR A YOUNG PERSONA THAT FORGED HIS IDEALISM OF MUSIC IN THE GREATNESS OF DETROIT, CHICAGO AND NYC SCENES. 

FROM HIS ROOTS (90’S CLUB CULTURE) TO THE HIGH DJING LEVEL HE REACHED (BERGHAIN, FABRIC, CONCRETE), THERE ALWAYS WERE A RICH MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE AND A COMPLETE EASE IN THE PATH HE PUT HIMSELF IN.

THROUGH IMPRESSIVE DJS SETS, FRANCOIS X SUCCESSFULLY CREATES A SYNERGY BETWEEN MUSIC GENRES WHERE SOUNDS PERFECTLY KNOCK EACH OTHER..

HIS STRONG SKILLS EARLY CONVINCED HIS FRIEND DJ DEEP TO PRODUCE HIS FIRST THREE RECORDS ON HIS LABEL DEEPLY ROOTED A PUBLICLY ACCLAIMED PRODUCING MOVE THAT OPENED THE WAY TO GET ONE OF HIS WORKS REVISITED BY MARCEL DETTMANN.

FRANCOIS X ALSO CO-FOUNDED WITH HEARTBEAT ONE OF THE MOST RENOWNED FRENCH RECORDING LABEL: DEMENT3D. A VIVID PLATFORM PROVIDING THE WATCHWORD TO AVANT-GARDE TECHNO, WHERE HE CAN NOT ONLY GIVE LIGHT TO ESTABLISHED ARTISTS (POLAR INERTIA), TO NEW BUDDING TALENTS (DSCRD), BUT ALSO TO HIS OWN SOLO AND DUAL (HISS W/ OPUSWERK) WORKS.

MARCEL DETTMANN GAVE ONCE AGAIN CREDIT TO THIS INCREASING NOTORIETY BY PUTTING “RISING” FROM FRANCOIS X ON HIS OWN FABRIC 77 MIX RELEASING THE SONG ON HIS LABEL MDR. THIS MARKS FRANCOIS X’S PRODUCING TALENT REACHING A NEW LEVEL, PROVIDING SINCE SOLID PROJECTS SUCH AS WE MOVE AS ONE WITH ANTIGONE AND REWORKS FOR PRESTIGIOUS LABELS SUCH AS POLEGROUP AND SOMA.

AS A MATURE AND INSPIRING CHARACTER WITH VARIOUS PLAYGROUNDS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS, FRANCOIS X REACHES THE TOP SPOTS IN WHAT HAS IMPACTED TECHNO OVER THE YEARS.

HIS EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANT ROLE ARE NOWADAYS A PROOF OF HIS INTIMATE VISION OF DANCE MUSIC WITH NO BOUNDARIES. TAKING CLUB’S CULTURE AS A FANTASY SINCE HIS BEGINNING: HIS PROJECTS, WORKS AND MORE GLOBALLY, HIS LEGACY ARE ALL ANCHORED WITH THE SAME GOAL: TO GIVE LIGHT TO A GOLDEN ERA AND SPREAD THE CORE OF A MOVEMENT, THAT MADE HIM DREAM YOUNGER.
