Franz Matthews

Franz Matthews is a franco-german music producer & DJ based in Berlin.

After growing up in St Brieuc, (Brittany, France) - where he learns the guitar & the piano at a young age, spending some time in Wyoming and studying in Angers, he settles in Paris, where he forms the Indie Dance Pop band PARLEZ-VOUS ANGLAIS ?.

With his band and as a DJ, he played many shows across Europe, and released a few EPs on several different labels, including his own imprint HIFI/LOFI.

Now living in Berlin for the 4 last years, Matthews kept busy developing his music production studio, MOWD, writing, producing and mixing music for many artists and commercial projects.

He also formed the chilled psychedelic electronica duo LANGUAGES, of which the acclaimed debut EP came out at the end of last year on Days of Being Wild, featuring a chart topping remix from the master Ewan Pearson.

These last couple of years and in between his other projects, Matthews has also been concentrating on his solo project as Franz Matthews, focusing on a more futuristic sound based around his love for spacey analog synths and electronic disco grooves, oscillating between the past and the future in his very own way. After releasing a remarked first track together with Atelier Francesco on Timo Maas’ imprint Rockets & Ponies (remixed by Swayzak and played by no other than the techno king Laurent Garnier), Franz Matthews released his debut EP ‘Ostkreuz’ at the beginning of the year on Days of Being Wild, featuring a deep remix from Rodion & Moscoman aka The Claydermans.
