Local Bands: Ferenc

Fra Soler and Maxi Ruiz are the masterminds behind Ferenc, an impressive techno project that was born in 2003 with the hit ‘Yes Sir I Can Hardcore’. This success was followed by the excellent ‘Fraximal’ and ‘Zambomba’ (Kompakt,2008) before the duo then put the partnership on temporary hold. Fra is known for his longstanding residence at Nitsa and for performances in across the world, and Maxi has been part of the artistic cast for the Apollo group for several decades.
Finally breaking the silence after several years, the duo have  presented their new material at MIRA 2017 at the 3D Sound Room by SON Estrella Galicia, with a live performance in which the expert use of sophisticated arrangements, subtle sound selection and the elegant trademark references of both artists promise a world-class techno experience.
