Doing it with love, doing it for the world wide music lovers and club scene – this is Francesco Parla.
The italian stallion, living near Zurich/Switzerland, is an extremely talented music producer & dj. He is the one who doesn‘t copy anything from the others – he just does his own and authentic style. He tries to be different in the music market, even if he is always updated with news in the scene and running trends. Francesco is a great entertainer as a dj, too – playing longer sets without beeing lazy for the crowd on the floor. When Francesco is doing music, what he is doing since more than 13 years, he just feels what the people need to enter into the dance music and party atmosphere – a lot of experience and a great know-how is what he has for sure. To name a few venues he already played as a dj: Bora Bora (Ibiza/ES), Hive Club (Zurich/CH), Supermarket (Zurich/CH), Blok (Zurich/CH), Club Station/Toolroom Knights (Zurich/CH) and more. He already played alongside Josh Wink, Butch, David Herrero, Joyce Muniz, Francesca Lombardo and more. He also plays for the official Toolroom Knights in Zurich, supported by Shikki Mikki Records.
After many hours at the studio and beeing ready with a lot of new tracks coming out in the near future, he is ready again for some interesting and thankful dj sets. Hyping the crowd – playing with the crowd, motivating everyone on the dance floor. This is what he absolutely loves about his job.
Francesco Parla is a real specialst – just to keep his music as versatile as possible! Words off, music on! Join in!
My Favourite Freaks Interview
Hey mate! How Are You? What do you have scheduled for today?
Hello my friend. Thank you I’m fine.
Today I am working on new tracks as always
also checking out some new releases & promos to play this weekend in my sets.
Please tell us a bit about your latest releases!
My latest release is a remix for a cool dude from Bangkok, called DOTT – Dogs On The Turns.
It was en EP called “Escape” on Zurich based Shikki Mikki Records. It’s a really groovy dark tech package and I had much fun to do this remix.
I also have 2 tracks released on 3 different compilations from the Italian well-known imprint “Natura Viva” (Various Artists “Sole” and “Luna” and “Viva 2015.4” – the best of 2015)
Tell us a bit about your upcoming releases! Is there anything special planned?
Yes! In February I have a catchy EP – release on Indiana Tones (Mothership EP) and one more on Natura Viva with a nice remix from my buddy Pazkal. I am also working on EP’s for 2 different big labels. I can’t communicate more details at the moment, because everything is still in planning phase
What was your funniest or craziest experience while touring?
it is a long time ago, when I was young (haha!!)
First I was celebrating a friends birthday in a bar, while I was drinking just a few drinks too much, at the end – that was really bad, because I had to play a 2h – set later on in a club. Not a nice feeling, seeing everything twice The light show was fantastic, but did the things a lot worse to me – at the end, my set was quiet ok but I learned at the same time, to do these drinks after my sets and not before playing (haha)
