Franky Wah Recaps A Massive 2019
 
We’re thrilled to be celebrating today with one of the rising stars in the UK progressive scene. Franky Wah has enjoyed a massive 2019 including highlight festival performances at Creamfields, Glastonbury, and Hideout Festival, as well as widely acclaimed releases like “Get Me High” and “Hide,” which have received heavy support across radio and in the sets of renowned tastemakers like Sasha, Tiësto, Annie Mac, and Pete Tong.
 
Hi Franky, good to have you with us today! How was your 2019?
Thanks for having me, 2019 was a game-changer for me! I have literally achieved more in 2019 than I have in the last 5 years, let’s hope 2020 is the same. 
 
For someone who hasn’t heard your music or is unfamiliar with your background, how would you describe your music?
I’d like to think my music hits you in all the right places. Some of my records are head down, stomping vibes, but others are really deep and nostalgic.
 
 
Your latest single “Time After Time” with Jessie Ware is out now and we have so many great things to say about it! How did you and Jessie first get acquainted and what was the process behind the song?
The vocals were actually sent to me by my label — Jessie is such an incredible talent so when the opportunity came to work with her I jumped at it. It took a day to write the music and half a day in the studio with Jessie tweaking the lyrics and recording them. 
 
You’ve also recently launched your own label Shèn Recordings, so can you tell us more about the creative process behind it and some of your goals with the imprint?
Shèn is a platform for the music I’m making that doesn’t really fit with any other labels. I want these records to be accessible as I see the crowd reactions when I play them. One of the main goals with the label is to turn it into an event that will eventually tour the world.
 
This summer was a big highlight for you, with a massive gigs at Creamfields, Glastonbury, and Hideout Festival. What was your experience playing your music out in front of these massive crowds?
Words can’t really describe the feeling — I will remember and cherish these gigs for the rest of my life. The craziest thing about it was that I didn’t have any nerves whatsoever, I felt so comfortable up there!
 
 
Finally, what’s next for Franky Wah in terms of music? Any exciting plans for 2020?
There is so much happening and a lot in the pipeline. I have an American tour coming up which has always been a dream and I’m also working on an album which should lead to a UK album tour, so keep your eyes peeled!
