FRANZ SCALA aka...
Franz Underwear’s sets are as diverse as the music he curates as label head of Slow Motion. Weaving smoothly between Italian Dance, Cosmic, Psychedelic and Dirty Disco, Franz quickly turns the dance floor into a vignette-tainted retro nostalgia rave fueled only by his music and liters of Cuba Libre he likes to consume whilst behind the decks.
Born in Pescara, Italy and now a resident of Berlin for nearly a decade Franz has his roots in noise and industrial rock but was led by the record collectors passion into acquiring a taste for modern and not so modern dance floor music. He frequently inspires dancers in clubs all over Europe with his eclectic blend of spacey Electro, New Wave and Acid speckled with hints of Detroit and Chicago House.
Away from the decks Franz has been busy in the studio releasing tracks on cult labels such as World Unknown, Bordello a Parigi or Discodromo’s Cocktail d’Amore label. Some of his works are of course banned to vinyl on his own imprint Slow Motion.
If he is not in the studio or the club you can find him behind the bar of his Berlin restaurant Cafe Futuro where he serves italian wines accompanied by an excellent selection of music and Italian cinematic masterpieces.
In 2013 he joined Dimitri SoEmotional in the “Studio Luce” project
