Championed as one of the UK’s most exciting talents in dance music today, Franky Wah signals a run of new music with Find Out Who We Are. A collaborative single with rising UK vocalist Lusaint, Find Out Who We Are is out now via Franky’s label, SHÈN Recordings.
Continuing to showcase his ability to glide between electronic genres, Find Out Who We Are sees Franky Wah conjure another meticulously crafted dancefloor production. Influenced by sounds from deep afro tech, tribal house and the melodic elements which have become his trademark, Find Out Who We Are features the hypnotic vocals of Luisant – the multi-talented artist who burst onto the scene in 2019 when her cover of More Than Friends was featured on Love Island and soon became the most Shazam’d track in a single day with over 45k+ streams. More recently, Lusaint has racked up over 20 million streams globally with her music, releasing acoustic covers which have seen support on BBC Radio 6, Radio X and BBC Introducing.
This track is influenced by so many different genres and personal passions in music. I’ve been playing a lot of deep afro tech and tribal house in my sets recently, so I really wanted to explore making that kind of record. The drum pattern definitely sits in the afro tech world, but it also leans on the more melodic and progress elements that are present in a lot of my music. For me, this record really embodies SHÈN, and is a sound that I’d like to eventually become a trademark for the label. – Franky Wah
