There are no upcoming gigs for Franky Rizardo.
With such a strong work ethic and a desire to broaden his scope across the world, you get the feeling that his aims for global domination are very much within his grasp. As is clear from his decision to veer away from the more hyperbolic sounds of his contemporaries though, he won’t be compromising his ethos to do so.
Franky Rizardo’s hugely refreshing approach to house music has been paying dividends in a big way.
Having established himself as one of the biggest draws in Holland’s house music circuit with a style that works as well on big stages as it does in sweaty clubs, he’s now rapidly expanding his horizons across the world. Releases on OFF, Defected and Spinnin’ demonstrate an increasingly strong production career, while his Flow radio show and events are fast becoming a major part of the house music landscape across the world.
“I think that playing a lot of different stages has taught me how to work with a large diversity of crowd, rather than doing one trick every show. I don’t want to be a one-trick pony. I just want to arrive and do my set specifically for that night.” It speaks volumes about his appeal and ambition that he’s as at home playing with long-time friend Hardwell as he is playing alongside house music legends like MK and Dennis Ferrer.
