Franksen & Tom Wax

Franksen & Tom Wax I Plastic City
This dynamic duo works at the forefront of cool German club music and its media since ages.

Tom Wax celebrated his career as a solo techno artist as early as the rise of Frankfurt to being a German techno-city known worldwide. As a producer in the 90s he released and worked as A&R for the well-known label Harthouse. He established himself a cornerstone in every sensible techno-history, with still legendary projects such as Arpeggiators or AWeX. As resident DJ at Frankfurt’s very own “Dorian Gray” he belongs to the heritage of the Frankfurt sound.

Since five years Tom is hosting the weekly radio show YOU FM SOUNDS at Frankfurt’s public radio YOU FM, broadcasting for the Rhein-Main area’s terrestrial listeners as well as the whole globe via stream. Tom is hosting guests from John Acquaviva and Oliver Huntemann to Sis and Reboot, in other words from Techno to House. As a radio-host Tom’s playlist boasts cool contemporary clubsounds between trend und tradition. In fact, it was by means of tradition that Tom Wax hooked up with Franksen in the studio.

Franksen is „On Air“ since 8 years, hosting Germany’s longest-running DJ-Radioshow. Today’s YOU FM CLUBNIGHT is a real radio-gem and Franksen cares passionately about booking, hosting and DJing. All the flavours of house- and techno are represented with groovy tracks, a vibrant presentation and well-chosen guests. From Jamie Jones to Loco Dice or from John Dahlbäck to Johnny D, just to give you a few from last year’s list at Franksen’s studio. Meanwhile, Franksen works as a club DJ and writes for Germany’s dance-magazines „Groove“ and „Raveline“.

While Tom took his way via techno und electro, Franksen emphasizes house und deephouse- structures and vibes in their colab. Their personal approach of „need to dance to it“ fuses their ideas. Driving beats, organic percussions, electronic funk or global vibes, it’s all in there. While their radio meetings ended in constant discussions about the pros and cons of the latest tracks observed on each other’s decks, it was never arguments remote from open ears. Now that they know even more about their vitae vice versa, they put all their expertise together to make some fine tracks. The interest was more than spurred as soon as they sat down together to find how they could refix and merge their histories. Now the strict goes with the playful, the rhythmic with the melodic and the organic with the electronic. Every session is intoxicating for themselves. And the results are versatile, groovy housetracks with a distinct drive.
