---FRANK BOOKER (WONERFUL NOISE)---
-launching his new ep on Wonderful Noise Recordings-
Emerging from the shadows at the beginning of 2009, Frank Booker has seemingly come from nowehere to unleash a barrage of Disco fueled bombs on unsuspecting dancefloors worldwide.
First signed to boutique London record label, Untracked Recordings, Frank released the 'Brothers EP', featuring 3 choice cuts, swiftly marked him out as an emerging artist to watch, gathering record of the week at Piccadily Records UK, and also rocketing to the top of the sales charts on Juno Records.
The follow up, 'Paper Cuts' b/w 'Get On' cemented his growing reputation and lead to remixes alongside Recloose for Latin Grammy winners Los Amigos Invisbles (Lovemonk Records, Spain), and Based on Kyoto. As well as a solo Frank Booker remix for Marius Vaareid for Maxi Discs out of Scotland, and a forthcoming Japan only remix for Max Essa (Bear Funk).
Frank's records have been supported by scene heavyweights such as Ashley Beedle, Todd Terje, Mark E, Tim Sweeney (Beats in Space / DFA), The Revenge, and DJ Day amongst others.
All of this brought the elusive Frank to the attention of one Kenji Sakajiri, the A&R man for esteemed Japanese Record label, Wonderful Noise. Kenji instantly signed Frank for a special limited edition Mix CD (Out May, 2010), and an EP to follow in July, 2010. The EP will feature a special Remix by the one and only beatdown legend, Mark E.
Frank is also the co-host of the highly acclaimed ‘Hit It & Quit It’ radio show alongside Recloose. Hosted every Monday night on George FM (Auckland, New Zealand), and consistently leading in ratings for the station, the show has become one of the station’s most popular, and has since been signed for syndication on legendary Japanese radio station, Shibuya FM.
The two also co-host a regular clubnight based on the radio show. Thus far, 'The Hit It & Quit It Revue' has featured guest performances from the likes of Julien Dyne (BBE), Trus'me (Fat City), as well as many local legends.
The revue also had the privilege of performing at the closing party of the 2010 Sydney Arts Festival.
As a DJ, Frank's music spans a wide array of quality Black dance music: From deepest Disco, to 80's boogie and quality modern house, as well as some super special re-edits (Shhhh!) all put together with a focus firmly on the dancers. Keep on!
