It must be deliciously bewildering to be recognized at what you do by same people who inspired you in the first place. This feeling is no stranger to French House Music DJ - producer Franck Roger. When not travelling the world to honor club invitations, this devoted crate digger (don’t ask him about Serato) spends time in his Parisian studio messing with beats and loops. Never not working, Franck Roger is about to take things to another level as a talent searcher (via his Real Tone Records label), a beatmaker and the DJ you want to dance to. More beats, more gigs, more love. In the beginning was… the Beat. Was little Franck Roger hit by a disco ball when his parents weren’t watching? The story doesn’t say, but there were definitely a lot of signs in his early years that screamed for a future vocation. As a kid, Franck remembers playing around with his audiotape recorder, editing radio hosts voices out and making sure the beat matched when taping the next song…  Quite a symptomatic D.Y.I. approach to music that soon translated into a mission. It was already all about instinct. The very same intuition underneath the House Movement from the beginning: a need for beats and loops.  And some sounds interfering. “I don’t think I was made to do anything else than making music.”  From raw-edged, simple and stripped-down tracks – the ubiquitous “M” word, to steamier, deeper and more sophisticated tunes , Franck Roger has managed, in less than ten years, to create a distinctive musical signature that earned him ongoing praises and respect from the likes of Kerri Chandler, Louie Vega, Osunlade, XXX, XXX, etc. Although he may have earned attention with vocal classic productions (No More Believe, etc.) first, his work soon gave way to a sound that finds home in venues as varied as Berlin afterhours club Panorama Bar and Parisian cosy and intimate Djoon Club. An instinctive approach. In the last few years he developed and redefined his musical landscape, through travelling, experimenting and more importantly beatmaking. Beat is the word. It comes as no surprise if today, club promoters from Japan to South Africa – places where House stands in the center of the music scene, invite him regularly.  With a studio as his best friend, Franck Roger fears nothing: “Most of the time I use my studio as a sanctuary, a shelter from the city mayhem or life complications... I search for a beat and build the tracks from here”. This is what you would call the Beat approach to production. “You never know where it’s gonna take you”, he warns. “Sometimes it doesn’t go far at all, simply because it just doesn’t have to.”  Luckily for us, this ability to create severe club bangers comes with an insatiable need to rock the crowd. Making you dance, and getting a kick out of it. Music and dancing have always been intimately bonded for Franck Roger, ever since that day he first entered a club in the mid 90’s: “I started going out in the mid-90 when I wasn’t even legal - I was one of these club kids. That is when it all became clear to me what I was going to do with my life”, he recalls. At the time, the loudest place to hear House music was the legendary Rex Club in Paris. Folks such as DJ Deep and Laurent Garnier would play there all the time.  Flash forward to 2008: the Rex Club is now home to Franck’s successful Real Tone Records party “The 5 Beats” showing clubkids du jour how it should be done, alongside prestigious guest dj’s he can also call friends. The more Franck Roger is playing club gigs, the more comfortable he stands in the great dynasty of DJ’s that matter.
