Elektrana / Zondag, 15 juli 2012
When you learn how to party hard, it comes to mind that the relaxation process must be harder. But when you are Franz + Shape, an Italian duo, you realize that heavy relaxation includes sea water, sun, and lowering your bottom in a warm sand. This is just a proven method that works – science, or something else?
Hailing from Rimini, Italy, Franz + Shape were noticed in 2005 with their song "Countach". Since then, this dynamic duo has released their work through many labels, including Bang 12 Inches, Relish Recordings and Turbo. Soon, their name found its way on compilations, from 2 Many DJs, through 50,000 Soulwax Fans Can`t Be Wrong, to Misch Masch. Between 2006 and 2007, they released their first EP, "Destination/Location", which proved to be a score, opening an epic chapter in this duo’s melodious journey.
Their recognizable sound, putting Acid Wave and Electro together, became a popular choice with producers all around the world, only naming some of them - Erol Alkan, Brodinski, Soulwax, Boris Dlugosch, Congrock, Punk Jump Up, Autokartz, One Man Party...
You will find everything you need at their live performances: a great Electro sound combined with synths, drums and samplers, and the most important, their natural habitat – the crowded dancefloor!
They have published only one album so far, in 2007, but they have been managing to make it all up to us, remixing popular songs up until today. We have heard some whispers about a new material, but let’s wait for July 15, when we get to host them at our very own Elektrana stage, and hear it from them personally!
