A PLAYLIST BY FRAN-KEY, DAYZ Compilation vol.12
We have created a playlist of music from the DAYZ MIYASHITA PARK STORE that you can listen to anytime, anywhere.
Dayz brings you music you can enjoy at home, on your way to work, or on your way to school. Vol.12 features an exclusive playlist with special guest Fran-key(Crue-L) on Mixcloud.
With an omnichord in one hand and an MPC in the other, Fran-Key is a DJ/sound and mood-maker from Shonan. His debut was in 2004 with the release of the 12”single "Tetrapod Love" on Crue-L Records. He participated in the SPUTNIK Beach House event that opened on Tsujido Beach, and in THE BUS, a project to traverse Japan on a double-decker bus..
After releasing the mini album "Ecstacy Romance" in 2005, and the mix CD "Ocean Pacific Peace" in 2007, he formed the band FRAN-KEY, CRYSTAL & ROGER with three contemporary DJs. Their 2009 album, "Last Night A DJ...Dreamed To Be A Band," was praised by domestic and international artists such as Cornelius, Rub N Tug, and James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem. After performing with DJ Harvey at the Enoshima OPPA-LA, where he is a resident DJ, he moved to Okinawa and released his second mix CD "Summer134" in 2011, and the 12" single "Franbrain" featuring remixes by Luger E-Go a.k.a Kenji Takimi and Foolish Felix. He also participated in GRACE, a doll-making event held in Taiwan and Hong Kong run by Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER. He is currently developing his chill and imaginative attitude by keeping his life unpredictable.
