Born Francesco Scala in Pescara, central Italy, and currently based in Berlin, Franz started his musical career in his teens with his noise/rock band he came off giving many concert and also began collecting records from a wide variety of genres and styles.
His career as a DJ however began in 2005 with the birth of Slow Motion, a collective of Italian artists responsible for events happening between Berlin and Pescara involving electronic music parties and disco-dancing.
In 2007 Franz left Italy to live in Berlin and continued his work by showcasing his DJ skills and plugging parties all over the German capital, including legendary affairs at Sameheads, Tape, Scala, Wilde Renate, Kleine Reise, Loftus Hall, and many others. He is currently the resident DJ of two of the best regular parties in Berlin – Wrong Era and Magic Waves – which take place every month, along with Slow Motion label parties that happen at the internationally famous club Wilde Renate. He frequently appears in clubs all over Europe and his DJ sets are a mix of obscure Italian dance, New Wave, spaced-out House, Electro, Acid and some hints of Detroit and Chicago.
Having established a strong presence both in Italy and Berlin Franz was ready to take a step forward and in 2009 he founded Slow Motion Records, showcasing the best of a new generation of Italian music producers and featuring such names as Fabrizio Mammarella, Discodromo, N.O.I.A. and Francicsco from Pigna People amongst others. Also in late 2012 Franz started up yet another venture, Cafe Futuro, a bar in Berlin playing Italian and cosmic psychedelic sounds while serving Italian wein and even showcasing obscure Italian cinematic masterpieces.
His own productions have been released on cult labels such as World Unknown, Bordello A Parigi and Tusk Wax, and his side-project Studio Luce have been released on Cocktails d´Amore Music. Soon will come a new label in addition to all this, based on his long-running club-night Wrong Era, showcasing a more international sound in contrast to the Italian feel of Slow Motion.
