Seeing Fabio ripping it up at Rage in 1992 I set my heart on becoming a DJ. Two years later I played my first gig outside my bedroom, warming up the main room at Nation (home of Cream). After becoming bored of clubland politics, big guest DJ’s and guestlists, I returned to my native London to promote legendary party night Throb which ran in Brixton to great acclaim for 10 years. Squeezing in a residency at for Nightshift at The Rhythm Factory, gigs in Norway and Poland and a float at Notting Hill Carnival before hooking up with London legend Jnr J to promote Jnr's Jamm.
Over the years his love of groove, melody and slow subtle building sets made him a warm up maestro. Whether in Liverpool, setting the scene for Tony De Vit, Jon Pleased Wimmin or Rocky + Deisel, or at The Rhythm Factory warming up for Marshall Jefferson and Farley Jackmaster Funk, or at Jnr's Jamm buildng the vibe for Mike Monday and Sebastian Leger, Francisco's instinctive understanding of how to program a set and drag people onto the dancefloor are second to none.
Whilst he built a career playing house music, Francisco's London childhood left him with an abiding love of soul, funk, disco, reggae and hip hop.
Inspired by trips to see Norman Jay and Giles Peterson at The Bass Clef / Blue Note and a trip to The Delicious Donut Club in Berlin he has collected and collating all manner of funky, soulful tunes over the years. This style found its first outlet in a Groove Lounge 3, released on EMI in 2004 mixed alongside Heath and Tam from the Throb Tag Team
