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.”
An insanely busy DJing schedule already sees him playing up to 70 gigs in the space of two months, covering a huge range of parties and venues. Frequent gigs in Ibiza (Hardwell asked Franky to play his nights at Ushuaia in recognition of house coming back into the spotlight) and closing the Defected stage at WEAREFSTVL are cited amongst his highlights. This bustling diary is testament to the passion and commitment he pours into his sets. For years he’s been re-editing other artists’ tracks to give himself a slew of exclusive material, and his love for his craft when he’s behind the decks is clear for all to see.
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.
Long associated with the legendary Defected Records, Sam Divine has come a long way since being a record shop employee having spent the last seven years being a key component to the White Isle’s party scene. Her travels have seen her tour throughout Europe as well as Brazil, Chile, Japan and Dominican Republic, with festival highlights including We Are FSTVL (UK) and Pacha Festival (The Netherlands) as well as securing a three year residency at Ushuaia, Ibiza. Without doubt one of the most popular and passionate DJs on the circuit, Sam Divine is a guaranteed floor-filler and party starter.
In an industry where many artists are praised for their efforts and determination Sam Divine shines brightly as a true example of diligence. She is the personification of someone who genuinely possesses such traits and this is evident in her countless achievements in such a short time span.
