Francois X has steadily established himself as a key character in the burgeoning techno movement in Paris. DJ and producer, his unique musical style, whether alone or as Hiss : 1292 (his collaborative project with Opuswerk) puts the listener into a hypnotic trance by its cinematic and vivid atmosphere.
Following ten years of relentless djing, Dj Deep, a friend and mentor of long date produced his first three records on Deeply Rooted. These releases not only gave his production the strongest public introduction possible but also allowed for one of his works to be revisited by Marcel Dettmann.
Francois X is also co-founder with Heartbeat of Dement3d, a record label hosting the first appearance of musicians such as Sandwell District in Paris and today entirely focused on recording budding talents besides established artists such as his colleagues Polar Inertia, his dual with Hiss : 1292 as well as his own solo projects.
Francois X’s music charmed and captivated an important character in his life, Marcel Dettmann, equally a friend and musical inspiration. “Rising” appears in Marcel Dettmann’s Fabric 77 who releases the track on his label, MDR and launches him as a great international musician of increasing notoriety. His consistently exceptional DJ sets secured Francois X a residence at Concrete, the world-famous parisian party, as well as regular slots at some of Europe’s leading clubs and festivals including Berghain and Fabric.
