(READ) DJ’S & PRODUCERS COLUMN / Gege Vibes introduces the young producer Frank Filograna from Salento, Italy (Germaica Digital)

Frank Filograna is an Italian reggae DJ & producer based in Salento (South Italy). He is 31 years old but has already been active for about sixteen years.

In the beginning, he was a component of ​”Selection Master​,”​ a very musically prolific crew​ from his area. Secondly, he founded ​his label “Filomuzik​”​ and soon after it became part of the independent “Unemployment Records,” with which he realizes many international collaborations publishing roots and dub vinyls.

​Actually, he is a member of ​”​Veebrazion​”​, a historic local sound system​ from Salento, and​ also responsible for programming and promoting musical events in his peninsula.

His style is a roots/dub with a touch of hip-hop and soul, influenced by the Jamaican and Uk scene.

Among his productions, we can often find also remixes. In this field, when Frank is attracted by some specific world success, he tries to reinterpret them in a very personal reggae-hip-hop key.

This is also the case with “Rockstar”, whose melody of the refrain and the Post Malone flow have captured Frank so much to take him, together with Adriano Sure, to give life to a captivating version of this worldwide hit. Then, Frank Filograna started the collaboration with Fabi Benz, a popular DJ’s and producer from Germany. This link-up allowed Frank to meet the boss of Germaica Digital (the prestigious German label well known for the production of Riddims as Doctor Darling Riddim) that decided to produce it.
