Franz & Shape are the Italian deejay/producer Francesco Spazzoli and the sound engineer Chris Shape, releasing on Headman/Manhead's label Relish Records. Their musical influences come mainly from the new wave and electronic scene of the 80's. Their live performance is characterised by their unique slamming electro touch with synths and samplers. The first track of Franz & Shape "Countach" was released in February 2005, in the lucky "Italian EP" (Relish). It is also featured in some very interesting CD mixes, such as 2 Many Dj's' "50,000,000 Soulwax Fans Can't Be Wrong", "Misch Masch" by Freeform Five on Fine and Mixmag 2006 mixed by Soulwax. Their "Destination/Location EP" is out in February 2006 on Relish with two special guests: Chelonis R. Jones (Get Physical) and GD Luxxe (Tigerbeat6). The vinyl include 3 tracks: "God Lost My Address", "This Is The Way" and "Take Off".
Their first album will be out in January 2007 and it will be rich of collaborations: David Carretta (Space Factory/Gigolo), Chelonis R. Jones, GD Luxxe, Mount Sims (Gigolo), Dirk Da Davo (The Neon Judgement), Ian Clark (Perspects) and Tomas Barfod (Who Made Who).
