Getting to know Young Franco

Australian producer Young Franco recently released his new single, ahead of his Wonderland Scarehouse Project dates in November/December. We asked him to tell us about himself:

I am Joey, an artist from Brisbane whose favourite things are travelling, eating and music. I write electronic music and it gives me lots of joy. I released a single in October called About This Thing ft. Scrufizzer. It’s out everywhere right now.

About This Thing is a song I wrote a year ago and released into the world last month. I’m very close to this track as it took a while to finish and went through a lot of changes, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. Working as an artist is tough but very satisfying.

My Wonderland Scarehouse Project shows will be amazing! Have you seen the lineup?! Can’t wait for A$AP Ferg and Lunice especially. So excited. Hopefully we’ll be friends by the end.

Home is Brisbane! A lovely city that sometimes get too hot but otherwise is great. No beaches sometime sucks but its always sunny.

I spend too much time watching Gordon Ramsay highlights. Probably the most addictive Youtube binge you can experience.

I’ve never understood why people don’t like coriander. What is it that is so polarising! Have you ever heard of Banh Mi or PHO???

It might surprise people to learn that I love listening to classical music. Debussy is ALL TIME my favourite.
