In Hour 2 it’s François X, a key protagonist within Paris’ underground scene for nearly a decade, François X has firmly cemented himself as one of France’s finest exports within the realms of House and Techno. Since making his production debut in 2009, the Parisian has gone on to establish his inimitable blend of genre bridging Techno, most notably via Dj Deep’s renowned Deeply Rooted imprint as well as his own label DEMENT3D. With his versatility fuelled by a rich knowledge and understanding of his musical heritage, his rapid rise has seen the DJ establish himself as a key resident at Concrete Paris, not to mention regular appearances at the likes of Berghain (Berlin), fabric (London) and Robert Johnson (Frankfurt). His debut album ‘Irregular Passion’ came out at the end of last year and he told us;
“The idea behind the mix wasn’t very clear at the beginning. Experimental? Danceable? Trippy?… So I decided to let loose and selects tracks I was enjoying at that moment to create a patchwork of vibes. I’m known for playing straight 4/4 techno but around a year or so ago I began to reinvent myself slightly by playing tracks I wouldn’t usually include in my in sets. Taking more risks. Surprising both my audience and, first and foremost, myself. Music is the answer!” – François X
