Shaun Frank, an electronic music producer residing in Toronto, quickly made a name for himself in the electronic music industry. After collaborating with the Dutch superstar, Oliver Heldens, on the summer hit "Shades of Grey" featuring Delaney Jane, Shaun Frank embarked on a non-stop tour, performing shows around the globe over the past few months.
This fall is not slowing down for the young, music mogul - touring alongside Oliver Heldens, Adventure Club and The Chainsmokers up until the near end of 2015 - but Shaun Frank isn't complaining. To preview his show with Oliver Heldens next weekend at Echostage in DC (enter HERE for a chance to win tickets to the show), we sat down with the man behind chart-topping hits and discussed trips around the globe, upcoming releases and more. Read further and get a taste for what life on the road for Shaun Frank is really like.
No problem...happy to! Wow, I haven't even stopped to think about what my favourite stop was this summer. I have to say it was pretty dope playing on the main stage in Ottawa at Escapade Festival this year...and going B2B with Steve Aoki in Ibiza was also an absolute highlight.
It's crazy right!? There's even another tour to add to that, it's about to be announced. I've become friends with all these guys that I'm touring with in the past year so I'm really looking forward to these tours. I'm also hoping that we might be able to make some music on the road while we're out there!
Absolutely! I'm playing all my new stuff, and especially enjoying dropping my new official Duke Dumont remix that I just finished!
I haven't really done enough international tours to be sure, but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna love it all the same. I will say its pretty dope when you're like 5000 miles from home and people are singing along to your songs!
The last couple years I've mad neglected it...but I was born in the mountains, and my parents had me on skis at 2 years old. I'm dying to get up to Whistler Mountain where i grew up and ride at least a few days this year.
Radiohead because they always found such an awesome balance between innovation and beauty in their music. Deadmau5 because his chords were always just the dopest, and probably Mat Zo because I really love how he brought musicality to the genre.
Hmm.. probably that new Calvin Harris song with Disciples, "How Deep is Your Love".
I mean I cruise Soundcloud pretty hard, and a lot of my homies send me their new tunes when they're done so that's kinda how it comes in. But I also listen to a bunch of podcasts and radio shows.
I've got a new track that I'm dropping in a few weeks with KSHMR and Delaney Jane that I'm really excited about!
