With over 20 years of D.J. experience Frank Williams encompasses everything that is soul. From house music to funk, disco to electro, Frank’s sets are generally a collage of different types of electronic genre. His residencies at System Sound Bar, NASA and Charlie’s (Government), along with playing at events such as Garage 416, Solid Garage, Milk and Poundhouse, have allowed him to play along side such artists as Little Louie Vega, Alton Miller, Roy Davis Jr., Mark Farina, Glenn Underground and Mike Clark to name a few. Moreover, his extraordinary skills have seen him headline numerous events through out Europe including; Hungary, France, Spain and most recently Gibraltar.
When asked where he draws his inspiration Frank is quick to point out his Spanish roots. Originally form Marbella in the southern coast of Spain; Frank was predominantly exposed to music heavily influenced by Flamenco, Salsa and the Balearic melodies that were filtering out of Ibiza. His exposure to funk, disco and electro came years later when Toronto, Canada became his new home in 1979.
His cousin, a former Canadian national roller-skating champion exposed Frank to the infectious sounds of SOS Band, Parliament, George Clinton, Chaka Khan and Maze. These hip-churning grooves eventually inspired Frank to begin his collection of roller jams and old school funk. Its no wonder the progression into house music was a logical one. House music draws much of its inspiration from the early warehouse days, a sanctuary for everything that wasn’t mainstream and a reflection of what you might expect in a Frank Williams DJ set.
