TOUR ESSENTIALS: Young Franco
Considering the kind of love YOUNG FRANCO has been receiving in 2015, it’s pretty crazy that he’s only just about to head out on his very first headline national tour. But hey, that’s world we live in.
The tour is in support of the HUGE new single, ‘Don’t U Want Me’ (featuring the lovely Blair De Milo) which has already been smashed across the J’s and picked up all over the blogging/radio world. It shows a developed style, dripping in sophistication and silky songwriting – a refined yet energetic sound that Franco is maturing towards rapidly.
Considering that it’s his largest tour to date, it’s going to be interesting to see how he deals with the long nights, early mornings and sweaty shows. Aside from these huge headline shows, the producer’s also set to play at Lost Paradise festival at the end of December – so we caught up with Young Franco to see what essentials he’ll be bringing along to survive it all.

“I think I’m starting to get really bad vision, these bad boys get me through the day. If I forget them, the airport is not very fun.”
“Okay so this is cheating a bit, but this is my DJ bag (it counts as 1 item right??). Always bring Ethernet chords, USBs, hard drive, portable charger, earplugs and spare headphone jack. I’ve pretty much had to use all of these a few times.”
“This is a new one, although I haven’t used it yet. I’m going to start bringing it to DJ sets just to bring in some cool vibes. Very happy with this purchase!”

“I’ve had this watch for a while and really like it! Pretty simplistic design and really easy to wear.”
“Probably the best DJ headphones that ever existed. Take these EVERYWHERE. Very good sound and extremely reliable.”
