Franceso Del Garda

Saturday - The Loading Bay

Those who know, know Francesco Del Garda. They know how much love this Italian DJ puts into countless hours spent digging and preparing, and they know how deep his record bag runs as a result. Having learned the ropes as a club DJ on Italy’s Riviera Romagnola, he can now be found playing across Europe with like-minded musical spirits including Craig Richards and Ricardo Villalobos.

With a passion for unearthing the forgotten and obscure, Francesco has developed his own signature style of smooth analog house. His sets are rich with chunky tribal drums and warmly atmospheric Rhodes piano chords; records that wouldn’t sound out of place from Detroit’s most lauded house selectors. It’s deeply sensual music, music to groove to in the warm embrace of Boston Manor Park’s weekend of endless summer.
