German native’s Frankey & Sandrino have quite the musical pedigree. With Sandrino’s undying love for house paired with Frankey’s skilled musical background, the duo were always destined to work together perfectly (you might know Frankey as Frank Beckers who is from D-Nox and Beckers fame). In 2010 they first released their self-titled project and since then they have never looked back: 2014 saw the duo make their first signing to Innervisions with ‘Save’; 2015 they released what was to become their biggest EP to date ‘Acamar/Lukida’ on Innervisions, and last year they achieved a milestone event as their remix of ‘The Idea’ by Hyenah became the most charted track on Resident Advisor in 2016.
As we begin to draw to a close for 2017, the duo continued to impress with the release of ‘Visitors’ on their own imprint Sum Over Histories, ‘Wega’ on Innervisions and more recently ‘Virgo’, which was also on Sum Over Histories.
Keeping busy on the touring front, Frankey & Sandrino had a stellar September with dates in Ibiza, Dubai, Paris, Zürich, Glasgow and New York as well as further dates in Berlin, Venice and Moscow earlier this month.
Sandrino will be representing the duo for their debut dates In Australia…

Frankey & Sandrino’s productions, dj & live sets, are made of the right stern to snowball dance floors worldwide and fill them with epic moments!
Both Frankey and Sandrino have individually been active with electronic music well over a decade now. On the one hand, there’s Sandrino whose passion for life is driven by longtime love for house music in all its forms and shapes. On the other hand, there is Frankey, a schooled musician who already has a string of full-length albums and single releases out under different disguises. After their encounter the guys were drawn to each other by their mutual thirst for deep & melodic music, resulting in the self-named project by 2010. It didn’t behold much time before their first creations were released by Four:Twenty Records and Mood Music.
In 2014, Frankey & Sandrino sign ‘SAVE’ to Innervisions. By the end of 2013, the tittle track was one of the most sought after records. The next step has been taken! Early 2015, the guys sign ‘Starchild/ Lost’ to the Zurich based Drumpoet Community. Once more, Frankey & Sandrino take you to the deepest shades of house. On this specific EP, they work together with the UK based vocalist Jinadu (The Beauty Room). By April ‘Cephei’ is released on MoodMusic, and is described as inter-galactic starlight house music. June sees their biggest release to date: ‘Acamar/Lukida’ on Innervisions. The duo receives the award ‘Track of the season’ during the Ibiza DJ Awards. Frankey & Sandrino close the year the same way they started it, with an EP on Drumpoet Community: ‘Ways of the sun / Formax’ . 2016 proves to be a big year for the German duo. ‘Leap’ gets released on the Japanese Mule Musiq and they release ‘Hydrae’ on the Cologne based institute Kompakt Records. Their remix of ‘The Idea’ (by Hyenah) on Freerange Records is the most charted track on Resident Advisor. But also outside the studio Frankey & Sandrino go strong. Aside from a busy European dj diary, they make their debut tours in Asia, S-America and N-America. As if this wasn’t sufficient they also started their own label ‘Sum Over Histories’ to support new artists they believe in.
In 2017 Frankey & Sandrino return to Dixon & Ame’s Innervisions with ‘Wega/Pollux’ . On ‘Wega’ it’s a deep and spacey tech house affair, with exotic choral chants used sparingly over a tunnelling and entrancing groove. ‘Pollux’ is a darkly minimal house experiment building gradually into chill and glitchy house with sparse rhythm arrangements and buzzy melodies. It’s safe to say the duo is shaping up for even more exciting times.
