House / Breakbeat

Frankfurt a.M., Hessen


Franksen plays as a house DJ weekly. He loves his Deephouse and Techhouse, making sure it stays groovy in the mix. Driving beats, organic percussions, electronic funk or global vibes, it’s all in there. The strict goes with the playful, the rhythmic with the melodic and the organic with the electronic. In house- and club music, Franksen keeps it versatile. His long-lasting flirt with drum-n-bass only adds more flavor to his extraordinary house mixing skills and vice versa.

Franksen writes for German dance-magazine „Raveline“ ( and rounds up his journalistic and artistic interest and passion for club music as radio Dj. Franksen has been „On Air“ for 8 years, hosting Germany’s longest-running DJ-radio show YOU FM CLUBNIGHT ( caring passionately about booking, hosting and DJing in person. Just like in his sets, all the flavors of House and Techno are alive: with groovy tracks, a vibrant presentation and well-chosen guests. From Jamie Jones to Loco Dice or from Mark Knight to Johnny D., just to name a few from last year’s live guests at Franksen’s studio. Franksen teams up with Tom Wax to collaborate on modern, groovy house and techhouse tunes with a distinct funky yet soulful drive. They release on Plastic City, BCB Tec, Salted Music, Dieb. Audio and Katchuli Records.
