Album Notes
DJ Frane's instrumental concept albums sound like nothing youve ever heard. His first solo album, Frane's Fantastic Boatride (or beats to blaze to volume 1), was released on Goodvibe Recordings and became a college radio favorite. Used for the joint-smoking scene in the film Romeo Must Die, it also became the soundtrack for real-life herb smoking sessions around the world and was named Best Record to Freestyle Over by Vice Magazine. The album cover was created by Mike Shinoda, rapper for Linkin Park.

Frane's second album, Electric Garden Of Delights (or beats to blaze to volume 2), features a more evolved sound and provocative cover art by graffiti legend Mear One. It was named in the Top 10 albums of 2004 by the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Frane's music has been heard in films, MTV shows, and skateboard videos. His unique and highly emotive style combines thoughtful, impossibly intricate sample arrangements with live instruments to form dreamy, compellingly funky grooves which flow seamlessly from one to the next, more as movements in a story than as individual songs. This fusion of genuine hip hop sensibility with stony, experimental techniques led Alternative Press to declare Frane "a less pretentious, yet just as progressive, DJ Shadow." Here's some more of what the press has to say about DJ Frane...

"DJ Frane marinates in simmering herbal funk erotica" -HIGH TIMES
"A full blown instrumental hip hop symphony!" -ALTERNATIVE PRESS
"Intoxicatingly raw!" -URB
"Some of the most inventive examples of mind-expanding hip-hop production of the past decade" -OC Weekly
"Laces THC vividness into every sonic element" -PORTLAND MERCURY
"Blissful aural intoxication" -LISTEN.COM
"That old hold ya nose type of funk!" -ELEMENTAL
"Eminently listenable, consistently funky" -INK BLOT
"Frane puts the THC into Technics" -THE STRANGER
"The most refreshing album of the year!" -UCSB DAILY NEXUS
"Damn! This record has it all!" -GAVIN
"Excellent music for hot tub chilling" -XLR8R
"An underground hip hop classic" -EARPLUG
"A damn fine instrumental album!" -EXCLAIM!
"LP of the Year" -VICE
