Born Francesco Scala in Pescara, central Italy, and currently based in Berlin, Franz Underwear started his musical career in his teens. During this time he travelled around Italy playing gigs with his noise-rock band and also began collecting records of a wide variety of genres and styles in electronic music.
His career as a DJ and promoter, however, began in 2005 with the birth of Slow Motion, a collective of Italian artists responsible for events involving electronic music parties and disco dancing, namely East Coast Disco, Teenage from Mars, Wrong Era and Retro Futuro.
In 2007 Franz Underwear left Italy to Berlin and gave continuity to his work by showcasing his DJ skills and promoting parties all over the German capital. He is the resident DJ of Slow Motion parties which currently hold residencies at Loftus Hall (Wrong Era), Tipografia (Retro Futuro, East Coast Disco) and all releases from Slow Motion Records take place at the Salon – Zur Wilden Renate Club. He frequently appears in clubs all over Europe and his DJ sets are a mix of obscure Italian dance, disco house, new wave, space beats, cosmic grooves, electro, acid and some hints of Detroit and Chicago.
Having established a strong presence both in Italy and Berlin, Franz Underwear was ready to take a step forward and in 2009 he founded Slow Motion Records, showcasing the best of new Italian electronic music with releases produced by Italian artists only.
