MICHAEL DI FRANCESCO

Name: Michael Di Francesco

Aka: Touch Sensitive, Van She / Van She Tech,  Arithmatix!

Labels: Modular, Future Classic

Producer, DJ, amazing bassist, keyboardist with the band Van She, and all-round synthesizer fiend, Michael Di Francesco has as many projects as he does talents.

As a producer, in 2012 alone he has released a hugely successful album with Van She, a Beatport #1 single as Touch Sensitive with Anna Lunoe under the guise Real Talk, performed the mixdown for another Beatport chart topper for Flume, and completed countless remixes – the Beastie Boys being just one of them, filmed a music video in Jamaica, and squeezing in a world tour before christmas.

As a notable Australian musician Michael has worked with Jamie Lidell, Snoop Dogg, Sneaky Sound System, Ladyhawke, Cassette Kids, Utah Saints, PNAU… and opened for Daft Punk on their now-legendary pyramid tour.

Despite such rockstar achievements, Michael is such an all-round nice guy that you forget all of this when talking to him. He is one of our favourite music nerds of all time and it’s an honour when he’s available to teach classes at Liveschool and share his passion and his knowledge.
