EDMclassics | 1 December, 2021

Franchino , pseudonym of Francesco Principato, is an Italian disc jockey , active as a vocalist in the electronic music sector , and also known as DJ FG or Liquid Sky or Mr. Frank or Frankino .

In 1970 he made his debut as a DJ and disco-music speaker on the Seven Eleven console in Montelupo Fiorentino . After opening a hairdressing boutique on the Island of Elba , he works at the same time as a DJ in Marciana Marina , in the Capo Nord nightclub . Until 1987 he spends the summer on the Island of Elba and the winter in Brazil where he sings in a blues group from Arraial d’Ajuda , a town in the south of Bahia .

In important years for the history of electronic music, in particular of Italian progressive trance , Franchino added the production of records in addition to live performances. His first (12 “) is” Total Escandalo “, a collaboration between the DJ Andrea Giuditta and the brothers Franco and Riccardo Falsini, owners of the” Interactive Test records “label in Florence. His second (12”) comes out in 1994, with the title “A Night in Tirrenia” on Holy Moly Music label . He is undoubtedly one of the protagonists of that season.
