about

ACCELERATION the debut album by Italian’s Franz & Shape is re-released for your listening pleasures in 2020!

Franz & Shape are Francesco Spazzoli and Chris Shape who released their debut Album on Relish in 2007.
Their sound is best described as slamming electro w/ vintage synths and samples. Like an updated Italo, EBM, New Wave, Old School Electro for the modern dance floors.
In 2005 their first track, Countach was included on the Italian EP.
The track was featured on DJ Mixes, such as 2 Many DJ’s - 50,000,000 Soulwax Fans Can’t Be Wrong - Mixmag Cover CD MIX - BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and Misch Masch by Freeform Five.
The next releases were Destination/Location EP and Maximum Joy singles.

The Album followed shortly after w/ various collaborations amongst: Ian Clark (Perspects), Chelonis R. Jones, Gerhard Potuznik (GD Luxxe), Tomas Barfod (Who Made Who), Mount Sims, David Carretta and Dirk Da Davo (The Neon Judgement).

Album follow up releases were Eyes like knives/ Forgotten Days featuring american band Kill Memory Crash and remixes by the likes of Memory Boy a.k.a. multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ John Selway and Motor.

One could say that these 2 italian producers anticipated the return of the Italo, Dark Wave and Synth Wave revival by many years. Artists like Helena Hauff, Trevor Jackson or The Hacker supported some of their remixes and productions in their DJ Sets.
