Francis Inferno Orchestra is the conductor of a new type of ensemble – made up of rich samples from disco’s back catalogue and an array of raw drum machine rhythms. Coming at house music from down under, his productions join the dots between soul, disco and the sample based music that inspired him as a teenager.
The Melbourne native DJ/Producer made the breakthrough to the international scene with ease – and has kept heads spinning with a stream of seriously danceable releases since 2010.
Presenting house and techno classics alongside rare oddities from beyond his years, FIOs DJ sets are a low-brow history lesson – respecting the past without being a slave to it. He has grown to become a key figure of Melbourne’s always growing underground dance scene, being invited across the country and further abroad. 2014 saw the release of FIO’s debut album A New Way of Living which was met with great reception and proved just how much talent this unique young artist holds. The same year saw FIO launch Superconscious Records with old friend Fantastic Man, this sits alongside FIO’s other label BBW which has become a sought after series for the functional music supporters.
