Franck Roger Headlines Forward Disco Tonight!

There’s no denying that the French have dominated global dance music since the ‘90s, and Paris is home to a rich vein of both underground house music artists and crossover superstars of the statue of Daft Punk and David Guetta. With one foot firmly in both camps, Franck Roger bridges the French underground and mainstream divide. Inspired by the enduring Chicago house legacy, the prolific DJ-producer and Real Tone Records boss has put out some of the finest international deep house cuts of the past 15years. “I grew up with a massive American culture background: movies, books, art and music. Coming back to New York is always like being home,” he says ahead of headlining Forward Disco on Saturday 27th. “I don’t feel like a stranger to this city and I don’t see much difference between Paris and NYC. They really match together on many points and I’m comfortable every time I play there.”
