“Why should I go clubbing? I was born in a club!” As a teenager, that’s what Frenchy B would often say as someone who was literally born into the Parisian party scene. Growing up between Paris and London, he was exposed to music at an early age. His parents organized some of the most notorious underground parties of the 90’s which hosted DJ’s such as Armand van Helden, Robert Owens, and CeCe Rogers. Notables in the crowd included artists from Daft Punk to David Guetta who took “F..ck Me I’m Famous” to Ibiza after attending.
Familiar with wide range of music, Frenchy B fell in love with hip-hop at the age of 8. By age 16, his life was changed after battling the American rapper DC21 in New York which made him realize that hip-hop was going to be his future.
Due to his background and proficiency in music, he was sent to Westminster Kingsway Performing Arts school in London, which has produced notable alumni including Sid Vicious of The Sex Pistols, Jah Wobble, and Eliza Doolittle. Shortly after his studies, he started recording his own music in different studios around France, eventually meeting his homies Greg and Danny, with whom he made his first EP.
His EP received additional production in London and was mixed in NYC by Ryan West who had worked with variety of successful artists from Jay Z, Eminem, to Maroon 5 and Nat King Cole. The EP En Route is due for release on Brilliant Tunes records in November 2016.
