FRESH KICKS: YOUNG FRANCO | Skip to main content



The Brisbane DJ cooks up an exclusive mix & answers some tough questions. 

It's been a big year for Young Franco. He's just wrapped a recent UK Summer Tour, played an at-capacity Splendour in the Grass set, released his wildly successful 'Franco & Friends' EP and done a B2B with Brit boys Bondax. Casual. 

His next single 'Don't U Want Me' (ft. Blair De Milo) is out today via Of Leisure, and he's announced a full Australian tour alongside the release. He's hitting up Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane in the coming months — nab your tickets here.

Inbetween all that, he's also managed to whip up a Fresh Kicks mix for DJ Mag as part of our new series that shines a light on our favourite up-and-comers from around the globe. Stream the mix and check out Young Franco's Fresh Kicks quiz below.
