French II

French II aka Frank Klick is a Dutch DJ and producer based in Tilburg. Drawing from a wide range of influences, his functional and murky, breaks- and percussion-heavy sound especially depicts Frank's deep-rooted ties to UK bass music. As a former member of BANGANAGANGBANGERS collective, he has been releasing monstrous beats with signature grimey vocals and performed on stages of festivals such as We Are Electric and Mysteryland, weaving together eclectic mixes of anything from dubstep to drum and bass to footwork.

With the familiar genre-disobedience, his solo works under French II moniker seem to vent his more introspective side and provide the freedom for experimentation, giving room for melancholic atmospheres and brooding basslines to step in. Read our interview with French II to delve into the producer's background and the studio process.

New Control EP came out on Intercept on December 4.
