Franky Boissy began playing at small parties and French cafes and made a name for him self in the mid-1990’s by masterminding the now legendary Bastille Day and WET parties. As his DJ career flourished and house music grew in popularity, Franky’s passion drove him to production where he made his first track in 1996 and he has been hooked ever since. Franky has produced music for OM Records, Transport Records, Look At You, Chez Music and Purple Music.
“As a DJ I always had ideas of how I would like to hear the music I was playing. House is not only a style of music it enhances music of all kinds. I love jazz, gospel, disco, funk, Motown, Latin and Brazillian beats and being a producer allows me to work with all of them.”
In addition to his many productions Franky still loves being a DJ and after packing clubs across Europe and the U.S. began a residency at his own club, Pink. “Pink came about because my partner and I wanted to create an environment that is conducive to the beauty of house music. Sexy, beautiful, international and pure Pink represents everything and everyone. There isn’t a dress code but there is a vibe code, for if you can create this vibe, you can have it all, all of the elements that make the music what it is.”
The opening of Pink in San Francisco was the beginning of Franky’s career as a club owner. Franky wanted to create an environment that brought all lovers of house music together under one roof with the love and compassion that the music he plays possesses. Franky created a state of the art DJ booth that made admirers of well respected DJs from all over the world.
Franky’s musical creativity was expressed in unimaginable ways such as bringing the entire Glide Memorial Church Choir to sing at Pink. After four years of building a life long dream Franky decided to move on to other ventures leaving behind a legendary mark on San Francisco nightlife.
Franky has continued his residencies with WET LA, Winter Music Conference, Coachella and annual tours in Europe and Mexico. Through his travels Franky has found inspiration to create new sounds and promote new parties like Scuba. Scuba started out as a Naked Music party with resident DJs Miguel Migs, Mauricio Aviles and other world renowned DJs. Scuba was created by bringing together technical and complex beats with the natural beauty of instrumentals. This ensemble found a home with the well-respected label and thus took on a life of it’s own as a weekly party.
Franky’s music can be described as octophonic, a blend of funky beats with a deepness to it. The music has a beautiful melody and most importantly a sexy sound that touches and speaks to the soul.
Franky’s vision has always been to blend all genres and eras of music into a musical voyage to dance and get down to. From salsa, disco, soul, gospel and sometimes rock to jazz, and French hip hop from the 90’s. Franky’s goal is to engage people into the music with familiarity of the rhythm like a memory waiting to be released.
“I believe (in fact I know) that the deeper you go the higher you get. Once you connect with this sound it will definitely speak to you. I feel it’s a San Francisco sound that reflects in our everyday life here in this amazing city, but also the vibe of all San Francisco residents and especially local music lovers.
House music is translated through our love for each other, through the human interest in all of us from different places on this planet. We all have this “special vibe” in common and house music brings it out of us.”
