After what seems like an impossibly long absence we are finally blessed with another mix from the brothers FranDisco just in time to soundtrack the tail end of your summer. We love the whole spectrum of the underground, scanning all of it to find the good shit. The FranDiscos (real life brothers Andrew and Jonathan) also like the good shit, that’s why we always rate them so highly. They are the byproduct of everything that makes the sonic melting pot of growing up in Toronto unique. The DJing embodiment of the I Pod shuffle generation, each foot firmly planted simultaneously in the music of the immediate past and the ever changing future. Teenage Junglists, immersed in Rap and House, ear’s always on the cusp of what’s around the corner as the lines between dance music blur together.
Just a quick glance of the track list gives you an immediate idea of the duos wide reaching ability to draw together seemingly disparate selections from across the electronic panorama and deftly mix them into one cohesive story for the dance floor. They effortlessly blend from Ryan Hemsworth to Machinedrum, Disclosure to Flume, Run The Jewels to Rick Ross with adventurous sprinklings of Dillinja and Daft Punk for good measure. All of this casual genre bending is nothing new for the FranDiscos, it’s been their signature from the very start of their career, from dingy booze cans to the now legendary Bassmentality nights and currently via their weekly radio show on Dubplate.FM, Andrew and John have been seamlessly rifling through the contents of their hard drive for enough years now that the status of “veteran” is hovering over their heads.
Never complacent, catch them all over town at their own parties, playing their own never to be released specials and keep your eyes on them as the new year approaches. In the meantime though, roll up and ride out with the FranDiscos because summer is no were near done yet and there is still plenty of times to be had, besides, the Jays might actually win something eh so you need that party music on the quick pull up.
