Shaun Frank started collaborating in the electronic dance community as a vocalist, working on releases with artists such as Arty, Nicky Romero, Dyro, Glenn Morrison, Carl Nuñes and Marien Baker. In just a short period of time these collaborations skyrocketed into the charts, leading to more requests for Shaun to participate in projects for Armin Van Buuren’s Armada imprint, EMI Music, Universal, Parlophone and many more. Several of his tracks have already reached top 40 positions on Beatport. Shaun’s biggest track is still going strong: the single “Unbreakable” which he recorded with Spanish DJ/producer Marien Baker is still trending on Electronic and radio charts around the world. The track shot to number 20 in the Mainstream Top 40 in Spain, reached number 6 in the U.K. Club Charts, hit the number 1 position on World Dance Music (Spain and Latin Americas main dance chart) and even broke an airplay record when it entered directly into the top 15 of most played tracks on Spanish radio. Having already toured all over the world as a frontman for the band, The ENVY, discovered and signed by Gene Simmons, he is able to perform unique live sets as a DJ delivering a cool mix of Electro and Progressive house. Incorporating a new and exciting twist to regular live DJ performances, Shaun has been known to feature live vocals to his mixing. Shaun Frank’s international experience, having toured all four corners of the globe, has given him the charisma of a skilled performer – a fact that’s already been confirmed by the big crowds and fellow DJ’s.

Good day sir. How are you these day?
Progressively worse as the snow nears and progressively better as the sun begins to shine. How are you?

What is / was your Halloween costume this year?
After good thought i’ve decided to go as someone who is indecisive.

You gigging for the rest of the spooky season?
I play every saturday so i’m not sure if that counts as the spooky season? If it counts then yes! If it doesn’t then no :(

Is Boston a good place for parties and music?
Not only is Boston the home of the best professional sports, but we also know how to party! Every night of the week there is generally a show you can go see! Thanks to companies like Crush!, MassEDMC, The Brain Trust, Khross, and MMMMAVEN the electronic scene in Boston is growing and helping to change the culture quickly!

Boston is home Moduloktopus. How’d you link with him to form The Blunt Sinatras?
In 2012 I was selected to play Kahbang Music Festival in Bangor, Maine. While there I spent most of my time with a live electronic duo known as Brite Lite Brite. We hit it off and started working together and doing shows together. Both members graduated from Berklee in Boston which is where Moduloktopus also graduated from. We all played a show together and after vibing out we decided to form something that would make an impact on bass music forever.

If you can, describe The Blunt Sinatras in five words or less.
Evolving, Futuristic, Unique, Diverse, Ready.

What are yours and Moduloks goal(s) w. The Blunt Sinatras? If you had to put it in words?
Not to be cliche but I think all artists should want to make a difference in the world. Our goal together is to be heard. With that said we each have our own beliefs on topics and although sometimes they might be different we respect each others opinions and passions. I think this is an important message to everyone in itself.

How many years spinning do you have under your belt?
If you count the 4 years I spun as a hobby in my parents basement then 5. I have only been playing live shows for just over a year.

How often do your ‘Homewrecked!’ episodes come out? What should be people marking on their calendars?
I will be trying to release at least one episode per month. I also have a mixtape series featured on Clubtapes.com called “Neon Combs”
People should mark August 10th on their calendars, its my birthday.

Any spookie / eerie or dark tracks in the included mix?
No, they scare me.

Where was the mix recorded?
In my brain first, then in Serato.

Future Classics Mix vol 5 | Mixed by Brian Folk

artworks-000049322379-u2w1sm-original
Brian Folk has been a prominent name on our site since it’s conception, a welcome name. A love child name if you will (we wanted him here). Regular readers of our are all knowing of the tight FC listening relationship to 808 hit Hip Hop music. Therefore, this mix volume should come as little no surprise in sound. We don’t fuck around, do what we got to.

Familiarity aside, the mix provided is a such a deliciously smooth eargasm of bedtime beats. Brian Folk don’t fuck around on the regular, even more so when it comes to mixes. AAA game certainly brought so that all listeners would indeed feel something. FC is exremely proud of how this mix turned out, and again, from whom it came.
