Franky Boissy

Profile:
Franky Boissy always knew he wanted to be a DJ. He grew up in France, where he made his first mix tape at the age of 12, and he got his first set of tables in 1989 when he moved to the place he now calls home, San Francisco. A pioneer of the San Francisco deep house scene Franky was moved the first time he heard the music in France and began playing house when he rediscovered the music on the B-Sides of the acid jazz labels that were dominating the scene upon his arrival.

He began playing at small parties and French cafes and made a name for himself in the mid-1990s by masterminding the now legendary Bastille Day and WET parties. As his DJ career flourished and house music grew in popularity, Franky's passion drove him to production where he made his first track in 1996 and he has been hooked ever since.

"As a DJ I always had ideas of how I would like to hear the music I was playing. House is not only a style of music it enhances music of all kinds. I love jazz, gospel, disco, funk, Motown, Latin and Brazillian beats and being a producer allows me to work with all of them."

In addition to his many productions Franky still loves being a DJ and after packing clubs across Europe and the U.S. he now has a residency at Mist SF.

Having his own business and production company, Metrojazz, has also allowed Franky to express himself more creatively through his music. "Having this place and not worrying about when my next gig is going to be has given me the freedom to focus on my passion allowing me to bring people together for this music, through music, preaching peace, love and happiness."
