FRANKLIN DE COSTA is a high quality player in the international scene and a regular one at the Suicide Circus. So it was obvious he had to contribute a mix to our series.
Check it our and let him declare his definition of house music, recorded live on the open air area of our club.
Franklin De Costa's first releases were way back in 1996 on his own label Fusion Records (w/ 303 Nation Member, Patrick Vauillaume). Under his Tichy moniker Franklin released various EPs on Frankfurt techno labels until the end of the 90s. His search for inspiration brought him to a very experimental production phase without the "4 to the floor“ preset. From this he developed his distinctive trademark sound with straight grooves and frisky sound design.
2012 will bring us a lot new music by Franklin De Costa. For the Tokyo based label Mule Musiq is an EP billed for spring 2012 feat 3 original De Costa tracks. His second EP for the infamous New York Pomoter ReSolute will mark their 4h Release. There will be a track featured on the various artists 12" on Argumento. A great upcoming quality label from Macedonia. Fellow artists on this ep will be Ryo Murakami who´s also a label mate from Curle Belgium and mighty Bearweasel from UK.
Also finished is a 2 Track ep for the fresh Berlin label Nsyde run by Richard Zepezauer. The label has earned a lot praise so far with releases by Daso and Kevin Reynolds.
For the ever growing Greta Cottage Workshop comes another vinyl release as follow up to his highly acclaimed limited 10" under the Mudkid moniker. Also an ep on the Vitalik Gold Series with an Anonym remix is planned for June / July 2012
