When DJ/Producer Franklin Reeves (1983) got notice of housemusic in 1993, he was immediately caught by the virus. Inspired by the early days of house and the famous Roxy club Franklin decided it was time to control the decks himself.  After his first gig in front of a big crowd (RedBull Full Moon Party) it all went upwards for him.

Soon he played at parties like Dance Valley, Exrema, Mysterland and later at This is..(Sander Kleinenberg), Festival Lief and in clubs like Paradiso, Escape, Studio 80, Hotel Arena and Now&Wow. He also flew to Sweden (Jonkoping) and Turkey (Bodrum) to do more gigs.

Franklin developed his style from funky house back then to a unique style of rolling deep/techhouse nowadays, as long as the groove is there! Always ready to please the crowd with the finest tunes. Nowadays he is also producing his own music. And with success. Several tracks of him were played on national and international radio (Dance Department, BBC 1).

A few years ago he met Jeroen van Meeteren and Bart Heideman from 90Watts Records and soon he developed his own techy style which fitted perfectly on this Amsterdam based label.

Always inspired by the early clubscene from the 90’s he’s making deep-house and tech-house which receive many good respones from DJ´s like Paul Hamill, Chris Boshell, Mr. Jones, Tim Andresen, Nick K, Dennis Ruyer, James Nidecker, Lin, Marcella and Angelo D’Onorio.
