Justin is no new jack!! 30 years deep in the game. His eclectic mix of Funky Breaks blended with House Music has made him a favorite at countless raves, clubs, radio shows, and special events. His influences come from all aspects of music, and he always brings the funk with him.
After several years of sharpening his mixing and crowd-rocking skills at full moon parties, one-offs, and house parties, he decided it was time to break out, and so he made a move to New York City to see if he could conquer the Big Apple. Within a year of being in the north east, his shoulder was tapped by Scotty Marz, the founding father of Kingsize USA promotions, to become part of the crew and a resident DJ at the weekly Bounce parties as well as at their one-off events.
One year later he had built up such a solid reputation that he was recruited by Scott Richmond and Jonathan Kadish (aka Mr. Kleen) to work at the world famous Satellite Records in New York City. Justin quickly made a massive impact in the store and became the Breaks buyer and the stock manager for all three stores (Boston, NYC, Atlanta). Satellite offered the opporutunity to not only be on the cutting edge of new sounds and producers, but also to be able to help cultivate the sounds of other DJs like Danny Tenaglia, Roger Sanchez, Erick Morillo, DJ Icey, Adam Freeland, DJ Dan, Dave Dresden, Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk), Todd Terry, John Creamer and Stephane K, Christian Smith, Deep Dish, Freq Nasty, Tommie Sunshine, and just about any other taste maker in the industry. After years of consistently rocking the north east in renowned venues like The Limelight, The Tunnel, The Roxy, Roseland Ballroom, and Irving Plaza, he became known as the “King of Breaks” in NYC, and an appearance at a massive NYC festival (6th Element) was so impressive that it even caught the ears of The New York Times.
In 1999 he started up his own Breakbeat label called Barely Legal Records and the first release featured the A-side track “All the Ho’s” by Scotty Marz, while the B-side had a collaboration of Justin Johnson and KMH called “Dai-Lo”. This would be the first in a series of ongoing Breakbeat hits that continues today.
Though his musical career is firmly rooted in a deep love and appreciation for hip hop and soul, the demand for Francis Chiser’s ability to mix music on the spot at venues across the nation has led him to hone a seemingly innate ability to play the widest variety of music genres, spanning from indie to funk to chillwave. His versatility makes him a difficult DJ to overlook.
As his discipline and dedication to the art of DJing continue to shape his reputation, Franchise is just enjoying the ride, hoping to expand the minds of all who want to listen in. He currently holds residencies in the Bay Area for “Dance YourSF Clean” & “the GENERATIONS party”.
