HONOLULU / HOLLYWOOD
Miko Franconi aka SoundSex, has been living up to his name the moment he stepped up to the decks, and into the studio. Having been involved with electronic dance music since the early 90s, his pre-teens, he was bred to do this. Miko started as an opening DJ act for his oldest brother in 1999, and has since been under close watch of aficionados everywhere, surpassing expectations worldwide. Being a classically trained pianist, and more than comfortable with any multitude of instruments, including his native (Hawaiian) Ukulele, he has been more than welcomed into top-notch studios around the globe. Miko Franconi has been twisting hips since his first release, "Tension", on Decoding Jesus’ "Let's Beat Milo Records" (LA) in 2010. Side project with wondering electronic guru Josh Wetherington (together known as "Wet::Sex") has received support from chart-toppers Claude Vonstroke (Nov 2012 "Stepp Harder" Beatport Chart) and DJ-MAG staples and Dirtybird co-founders, Justin & Christian Martin.
“I can always count on SoundSex to deliver those WTF sonic moments, can’t wait to hear what else is in store!” – Christian Martin aka Leroy Peppers (Dirtybird)
The studio is not the only place this young star has been shaking it up, in 2012 he was named Hawaii's SPINZONE DJ OF THE YEAR. Holding residencies at Ultra Music Festival (Miami), Artisan Afterhours (Las Vegas), Asylum Afterhours Honolulu (#77 DJ-Mag Top 100 Clubs), and having just finished a staggering 21 shows in 19 cities, covering 9 states and 4 festivals in only two months (Lick My Soul Tour 2013), this block-rocker is no stranger to the DJ booth. With his sound increasingly getting support from legends like David Christophere of Rabbit in the Moon, Melleefresh (Play Digital, freshmau5) and many others, his rise to the top is inevitable… it appears the Franconi Legacy has much more in store for us all.
