"A vinyl purist, playing a slick blend of Funk, Soul, Disco and House...
RockSteady" Freddie Franklin is a DJ and music enthusiast. Having been brought up on a diet of northern soul bangers and sweet motown grooves, Freddie aquired a taste for funk and soul from a young age. His early favourites included artists such as Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Smokey Robinson and The Temptations.He purchased his first record player at the age of 17 and this is where his love for vinyl and crate digging began.
At the age of 24 He picked up a pair of Technics turntables and discovered Londons vibrant house and disco scene, enjoying producers and DJ's such as The Revenge, Greg Wilson, 6th Borough Project, and Jacques Renault. From this he developed an eclectic DJing style. There are no bounderies when RockSteady Freddie is behind the decks. Expect deep disco and house, delicately weaved into rare funk bangers and simple soul delights.
Currently a resident DJ for London's "unwanted Family", you can see him DJing at several venues all over London, with residencies at the Horse and Groom, Shoreditch and The Star, Bethnal Green. The "unwanted." ethos is all about good tunes and smiling faces,so if you haven't checked out one of their nights yet then it's about time you did!
