The last two times we invited Franky Wah to New York, he played an extended five-hour set to a completely sold-out crowd. Franky’s blend of euphoric house, techno, and breakbeat make for eclectic shows that keep fans coming back for more. Now, he’s making his highly-anticipated return to New York with a showcase of his newly founded label SHÈN at the Knockdown Center on April 28. You won’t want to miss an evening in this cutting-edge art space, especially with a soundtrack like Franky’s.

Franky Wah - This Is SHÈN - Full Live Mix #livestream

Franky Wah–the genre-defying producer from an 800-person village in Yorkshire–has seen phenomenal success over the last few years. He's achieved significant chart success several times over. His 2019 release, “Get Me High,” reached #2 on the Beatport chart and #3 on the Radio 1 Dance chart. In 2021 he debuted on Pryda Presents with "The World You See," the transcendent melodic house anthem was a collaboration with Christoph and Artche and dominated dancefloors as the world began to emerge from the pandemic. Spending six months in the Beatport Top 10 it picked up plays from Tiesto, Vintage Culture, Armin van Buuren, Gorgon City, and countless others, and remains in the Beatport top 100 to this day. With a consistent stream of electrifying, chart-topping hits he has also earned the backing of influential tastemakers such as Pete Tong, Annie Mac, and Danny Howard along the way. Collaborations with Carl Cox, Cristoph, and Sasha only solidified Franky’s spot at the top.

In 2022, Franky began surfacing his imprint, SHÈN Recordings. In November of the same year, he released his magnum opus, boldly announcing its arrival. This is SHÈN is a sprawling three-hour, 27-track album. This remarkable collection seamlessly incorporates Chinese influences and maintains admirable consistency throughout the album. Rather than banging out flashy, club-ready hits, Franky oscillates between introspective sound design and brooding, progressive bangers. For his upcoming set, Franky Wah will bring this inspired music of SHÈN to life.

For such an inspired set, an equally inspired venue is required. Knockdown Center is a 50,000-square-foot art and performance space in Queens. Built on collaboration and cross-pollination, this century-old venue focuses on innovative, experimental programming. With undeniable warehouse vibes and a rich history of creativity embedded in the brick walls, this will be the perfect backdrop for a night of euphoric, explorative dancing. We’re so honored to welcome Franky Wah back to New York, and we hope you will join us in the celebration.
