Argentina-born Franco Cinelli’s rise as one of the most exciting Latin America DJs has seen him going from his hometown of Rosario to taking the stage at some of the world’s leading clubs and venues like Watergate and Weekend in Berlin, Harry Klein in Munich, Privilege and Ushuaïa in Ibiza and Cityfox in Zurich, along as starring in the lineup of acclaimed events such as MUTEK, Creamfields and SAMC.
Inspired by the sounds of Detroit and by his love for drums, he started producing his first tracks early on until his commercial breakthrough in 2005 thanks to his collaboration with Bruno Pronsato on the Picaro EP (ranking at n°7 on Groove magazine’s Top50 chart). A string of remixes of his track Sense followed shortly after, and an artistic friendship with the Spanish label Esperanza Records was the next step. Solo works and projects were released on famed imprints such as Hello.Repeat?, Adjunct, Weave, Sunset, Produkt, Claque Musique and International Freak Show. Together with Munich based DJ and Producer Dario Zenker, the duo Maria Fresca was born, resulting in a spectacular transcontinental music partnership for Ilian Tape and Harry Klein Networks.
More EPs were released on labels like Traut Muzik, AirDrop, Bass Culture, Harry Klein Records and Aux-Rec, and a bunch of his tracks were picked in some of the most relevant compilations in the industry, notably Marco Carola’s Time Warp Mix, D’Julz Rexperience Mix for Rex Club Paris and Dorian Paic’s Cocoon Heroes Mix for Cocoon Amnesia Ibiza. His epic remix of Cassius’ “Sound Of Violence” is his latest big hit, officially putting Franco Cinelli on the list of the international top names in the DJ business.
