Diligence, tenacity, and creative vision are what set DJ and IHEARTCOMIX Records owner Franki Chan apart from the rest. In a decade of revivals and reimagination, Franki Chan holds close the ideals and vision that has brought him to the forefront of his craft, seamlessly merging music and art by way of live performances and comics; all of which contribute to creating a pop-renegade aesthetic that defines the energy and unpredictability of the man himself. This post-digital renaissance artist has created an empire of all the things he loves and is.
Franki Chan has proven to be an iconic fixture amongst the eccentric background of an industry that is ever changing. His signature fedora and thick rimmed glasses have become a regular presence worldwide, with notable appearances at festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza, clubs like the legendary Fabric in London, and everywhere in between. His mixing craft and ability to forecast what’s next have turned this digital punk version of Clark Kent into an artist that will continue to provide dance floors with the salvation they’ve been looking for. Franki’s endless touring schedule has led him to share the stage with a barrage of talented artists such as Justice, Diplo, Boys Noize, A-Trak, and Drop The Lime to name a few. Beginning with only a single turntable and a cassette deck, Franki’s continued dedication to music and its ability to bring people together has certainly breathed new life into shaping the way we listen to and enjoy our nights on the town, especially when it comes to throwing some of the best parties and events in the LA area and beyond. Even if you’ve never been to a Franki Chan party, the energy and essence of his events have surely impacted the ideology of what it means to throw a memorable event.
In 2009, Franki Chan added producer to his already impressive résumé of cultural and artistic achievements. Franki is currently working on original tracks (debut single out Spring 2010) that will no doubt brings us the best in what we have come to know of his production skill through the several projects he has remixed for other high caliber artists such as Acid Girls, The Toxic Avenger, and The Very Best. Just like his DJ sets, we can expect an onslaught of dynamic, high-energy arrangements, deeply rooted in techno with a more rhythmic and percussive edge. In the meantime, with the success of his contribution to the Scion A/V Mixtape series (IHEARTCOMIX #21), Franki will release a series of new mixtapes that will surely encapsulate the spirit of his live performances.
