Franky Rizardo, born June 1st in the magical year of 1988, became interested in dance music at a young age. When he was just 14 years old his growing addiction to the beats had intensified to such a level that he felt compelled to begin experimenting with playing and producing music. Not long afterwards he took up a DJ residency at well-known Dutch club Manhattan and his hobby blossomed into his profession. With his blend of energetic and uplifting sounds he began gigging across the Netherlands and beyond. Countries like the USA, France, Switzerland, Spain and South Africa picked up his popular sound and welcomed this new talent with open arms.
Franky went on to collaborate with `Dutch House Heroes´ Bart B More and Hardwell. His tracks received full support from major players in the scene such as Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Fedde le Grand. This newfound notoriety resulted in remix requests from Erick E, Eddie Thoneick and Ian Carey.
But there’s more to tell about this talented whizzkid. His amazing track "Funky Noise", released by Fame Recordings, reached a dazzling # 2 spot in the Belgium Dance Charts. The tune has also been on full rotation at some of the biggest radio stations in the world and ranked highly in the International Dance Charts. It was also picked up by Samsung, who used it for one of their commercials.
Today the young and talented DJ/producer Franky Rizardo is a well-known name in the international dance music industry. Thanks to his startling DJ skills and his strong, fresh and original productions Franky’s career is quickly gathering pace.
2009 has already been a very successful year for this artist. Together with Skitzofrenix he compiled and mixed the compilation CD "Sneakerz In De Stad". His track with Youri Donatz “I Like This Sound”, released by Blackbird (a sublabel of Fedde le Grand and Funkerman’s Flamingo Recordings), was very well received and resulted in another remix for this respectable label. Fedde le Grand has also asked the duo to remix his track “Back and Forth” which will be released by Flamingo Recordings. Read more
