Born in Buenos Aires,  Franco Bianco grew up having a lot of contact with the music, making mix tapes  for the breaks in the school and sharing a lot of young experiences.  Playing vinyls since 1998, he  participates in many events in the biggest clubs and radios stations.  In 2004, he presents himself in one of the most important festivals of  Argentina: the “Personal Fest”, sharing line ups with artists like: Pet Shop Boys, Morrisey, Death in Vegas and Gustavo Ceratti among others 

Actually  he is producing releases, remixes and collaborates with labels such as  Unfoundsound, Multivitamins, Hypercolour, Meerestief and LessIzmore.  One of the latest Fabric compilations, (the fabric 38, mixed by M.A.N.D.Y) includes Franco’s track: “Noches de Superacion” as intro.

The last three years have been very strong, giving him a new start in his career, with  successful releases which were remixed by artists such as Sarah  Goldfarb, Federico Molinari, Seuil and Someone Else. In 2007 he had a huge  tour which began in Australia, passed by Egypt, and went through 13 countries. With a total of 32 presentations “Live!” over 4 months, he shared line ups with Steve Bug, Tiefschwarz, Matthew Johnson, Dominik Eulberg, Marco Carola, and many many more.

A new tour was scheduled for 2008 in Europe and Central America, to support the Mola vinyl and Origenes EP.  This last and bigger tour was a huge experience that lasted longer then  the 2007 tour. He also played in new places where he never was before,  such as Lithuania, Poland, Colombia, Dominican Republic and last but  not least, the Argentinean edition of the "Creamfields Buenos Aires", one of the biggest festivals around the globe.

His latest 12", Mola (with remixes of Tony Rohr & Bloody Mary), was a total success and  is still played by Laurent Garnier, Anderson Noise, Ivan Smagghe,  Frankie, Andre Crom, Nathan Coles, Tim Xavier, Brothers Vibe, Loco Dice  and many many others.

Actually he finds himself having many confirmed gigs (like the ones in  Denmark, Spain, Cyprus, Russia, Switzerland, Sweden  and Germany), and he works a lot in  his vinyl label Dilek Records, where we can find artists like Alexi Delano and  Mathias Schaffauser amongst other artists of his digital sub label Darek  Recordings.  Franco is definitely an artist to keep an eye on for sure!
