Born and raised in Venezuela, Frankox aka Francisco Soto has been building his creative path into music since an early age. Under the influence of his brother and producer Hector E, Frankox began listening to trance during its peak years in the mid-late 90’s. Aged just 14 and hooked on this fascinating new music, he soon found himself experimenting with melodies and sounds in the studio under the watchful guide of his brother. His education listening to those early trance releases equipped him with knowledge about melodies and arrangement, yet his own direction in the studio leaned more towards a sound akin with the grooves commonly found in house music. Combining the two, Frankox quickly established a mature confidence in the studio and belief in his own technique as a producer.
At 17, Frankox unveiled an EP package on South American label ‘Penta Records’ which was to be his first official release – a bold move by the young Venezuelan DJ/Producer but one that seemed to be the perfect impetus to kick starting his career. Before long Frankox found himself collaborating with Giancarlo Grattaro on his hugely successful ‘Gaia’ track for Robbie Rivera’s Juicy Music and remixing Promonova’s ‘Bingo’ single which featured the vocals of Jesty Beats. Whilst solo release such as ‘Epicca’, ‘Mortal’ and ‘On Fire’ have all contributed to his upward trajectory has an emerging producer amongst his peers.
More recently he completed a sterling re-edit of Francesco Diaz’s ‘Where Do You Go’. However, it has been the success of his 2012 release schedule which have given rise to Frankox’s name spiking in the consciousness of global heavyweight artists. These 2012 tracks like ‘Sotto’ and ‘Thor’ opened the floodgates to a world of new opportunities most notably his rework of the worldwide smash record ‘Somebody that I used to know’ by Gotye, which saw him line up against remixer Tiësto and for the record, and launch him as one of South America’s promising young electronic stars of tomorrow...
