Franky Wah launches his own Shen


UK talent, Franky Wah launches his own Shen imprint with two slices of underground gold.

Following on from this year’s huge singles ‘Get Me High‘ & ’Hide’ ft. Robinson. Franky has a clear passion for emotive trance chords and big house drums with his efforts have picked up key radio support from Annie Mac & Pete Tong. All this comes after the classically trained pianist has left a trail of dance floor destruction in his wake. He played notable gigs everywhere from Glastonbury to Hideout, Abode Festival. And also laid down a famous after-hours set at Tobacco Dock. Now he takes the next logical step with the launch of his own label, Shen. What better way to kick of proceedings than with a killer release from the man himself. Once again shows off his limitless creativity and unique grasp of musical sensitivity.

Superb opener ‘Next Life’ is an emotional roller coaster of the highest order. The slick synths shimmer and shine up top like a heavenly vision, with rolling drums getting you deep into the groove. It’s the sort of hugely atmospheric track that will form the high point of any set and have crowds in raptures.

On the flip, Wah exhibits a totally different sound with ‘Nightfall’, offering dusty breakbeats and a rugged groove that is overlaid with tender chords and twinkling cosmic keys. Deft vocal murmurs are stitched into the mix and once again this one will sweep clubbers off their feet and carry them away on a blissed-out wave of emotion.

Grab the whole EP from Beatport.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
