DJ, producer, and label boss Franky Rizardo has cemented himself as one of The Netherlands' most recognizable dance music exports. On August 11, he brings his iconic event brand, FLOW, to the city that never sleeps for an American debut. Get ready for an unforgettable night at Manhattan's premier club, Musica, as Franky and friends lead us on a mesmerizing six-hour journey of uplifting house music.
After rocking the stages of ANTS at Ushuaïa, elrow at Amnesia Ibiza, a three-hour mainstage set at Tomorrowland, and dropping releases across esteemed imprints like Defected, Rejected, New York's legendary Strictly Rhythm, and his latest remix for BLOND:ISH & Madonna "Sorry" on Insomniac Records, Rizardo is struck out to stamp his mark in our community with his multi-platform brand FLOW.
He points towards the sanctity of the dancefloor and the community formed upon it as his primary source of inspiration for FLOW. Created in 2015 alongside his partner Jasper Fioole, they intended to enlighten fans and create brilliant and artful gatherings that immerse, connect, and create peak dancefloor moments.
FLOW has found its way to curated stages at Mysterland, Colorado Charlie, ADE, unique event spaces like Amsterdam's classical music venue Musis Arnhem, its annual open-air FLOW Freedom Festival, and now Manhattan's Musica for its American debut.
Rizardo's FLOW brand transcends its portfolio with the launch of its record label, LTF (Listen To Flow) Records. His latest track, "Love Me Right," released under his label, has already reached heights by entering Beatport's Top 10. With deep roots in the philosophical idea that dancing can be both a spiritual awakening and a mindful practice, his label allows him to release distinctive music whose intentions are in sync with FLOW events.
Joining Rizardo for the US debut of FLOW is Secondcity. Drawing inspiration from his city of birth, London, and the one he grew up in, Chicago, Secondcity's global grooves have sparked joy on dancefloors for the last decade.
