France is become a heavy hitter in the global techno movement and one of the key players in this burgeoning scene is FRANCOIS X.
Francois has earned a formidable reputation as the leading resident of Concrete in Paris, the country’s top techno club. He also regularly makes appearances at Europe's leading clubs such as Berghain in Berlin and Fabric in London, as well as flying the techno flag at festivals including the Weather Festival in France and the Exit Festival in Serbia
After DJing around Paris for 15 years, Francois started to gain recognition outside the city when his debut EP was released in 2009 on the Deeply Rooted label, run by his friend and mentor DJ Deep. His releases on Deeply Rooted not only gave his production the strongest public introduction possible but also allowed for one of his works to be revisited by Berghain legend Marcel Dettmann.
Francois’ track “Rising” was included in Dettmann’s Fabric 77 compilation and also released on his MDR label, introducing the French artist to an international audience.
Dement3d Records, the label François co-founded in 2011, is also a vital cog in the French techno renaissance. It’s fostered the careers of artists such as Antigone, DSCRD and Polar Inertia, and has been the home of François’s collaborative work with Opuswerk as Hiss:1292.
Now, this leading light of French techno is making his Hong Kong debut at PUSH, where he’ll be supported by residents Frankie Lam and Lukas.
