Frank Valat [ Live/ Dj Set @ The Wood 06.03.11 ]

Franck Valat’s productions reflect the large variety of his musical roots. His aim is to discover and explore different colours and ambiances. That’s the reason why he works alone, in a duet (2Buddies) and for the new label « Schoene Musik ». His first contact with turntables was during the early 90’s thanks to the hip-hop culture he was living in.

Around 1997, he added a string to his bow thanks to House and Techno clubs. At this moment, he began spinning electronic stuff in bars and clubs in Paris and doing his own program on House radios in Brazil. 1 year later, he was composing his first tracks.

In 2008, considering the joy that composition inspired him, he decided to send his first demos to labels. Polar Noise, La Boucle, Anozer, Inminimax and Der Hut, were the first ones to give him his chance to share his music with people.

From this moment, his releases have been supported and charted by famous dj’s like Popof, Josh Wink, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Tim Green, Stephan Bodzin , Thomas Schumacher, Chloé, Brothers Vibe … He played live or as a dj next to Guido Schneider, Popof , Adam Beyer, D.O.P., Ryan Crosson, Manu-le-malin, Riley Reinhold, Butane, Seuil, and many more.
