Free Download: Frankmusik "Done Done"


Frankmusik the brainchild of 22 year British hipster Vincent Frank. Growing up in New Addington, an area in the London Borough of Croydon, he immersed himself in music, listening to late night house shows on Kiss FM, putting together mixtapes and creating music with his bedroom recording equipment. He was particularly inspired by electronic and hip hop artists like Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx and Busta Rhymes who redefined the genre by extending its boundaries.

But Frank's goal is different. He wants to make great pop music with self-imposed limits. "I’ve found that the most important thing about creativity is limiting myself. Setting myself a brief," he says in a press release. "That’s the difference between pop and jazz, and I make pop music."

That's such a refreshing way to look at it. Even when the sonics are endlessly inventive and completely original, the basic of pop music remain unchanged and emphasize simple song structures and melodic hooks.

Frank has been keeping himself busy hanging with soundboard heavy-hitters like Stuart Price and Richard X, while remixing other artists and DJing at London clubs. Frank also started his own label to release an EP of tracks last year (that you can hear on his MySpace page). He’s also taken his bedroom stems into the studio with Mr. Price, the man that ofcourse co-produced Madonna’s "Confessions On A Dancefloor." Expect more from Frankmusik very soon.

Check out a guilt-free download of his B-side track "Done Done," a sweeping electro-ballad with a crispy string section that would make ELO jealous. If you just broke up with somebody (I hope not!), this song will tear you up.
