Premiere: Fran Zaragoza Tigers Of Wood (Moliner Remix) on Pulse Radio

febrero 24, 2016

Spanish producer Fran Zaragoza returns to familiar ground on Depaart, with three captivating deep house grooves, featuring a huge remix from Moliner with the Tigers Of Wood EP, due for release later this month.

Having made his mark on the scene in his hometown of Madrid with the Blackout Club, Zaragoza and partners Guillermo Marraco from Easy Kid and Federico Sainz de Robles now look to begin carving their own path far beyond Spain with their finely crafted deep house and techno.

Featuring both the lush, vocal laden title track, the powerful Moliner remix and “Mindscape” with Easy Kid, it’s fair to say this is a crew on to something big.

Fran Zaragoza on Big Shot Magazine 5 thoughts about 5 tracks inside his record box

Last September Fran Zaragoza unleashed his The King Stay The King EP on Depaart, a scorching tech-house affair overflowing with infectious melodies and deep basslines. The Madrid phenom returns to Depaart on February 29 with the Tigers of Wood EP. Full of tense and techy productions, he gets by on the EP with a little help from his friends: Daniel Moncloa, who plays bass in Spanish indie-rock band Bultur, delivers a striking vocal performance on the title track; Easy Kid lends his majestic touch on “Mindscape” and good friend Moliner contributes a simmering remix of “Tigers of Wood.” Before the release of his new EP we checked in with the Madrid mixer and asked him to share some of his current favorite tracks.

The King Stay The King review on Ibiza Voice

octubre 2, 2015

Fran Zaragoza’s debut EP has been recently reviewed on Ibiza-Voice.

This new EP from Fran Zaragoza is the latest in a long line of hits for the Madrid man. It comes on theDepaart label and features two great cuts with one dub, all of which draw upon his years of experience in the booth, studio and as a promoter of his own events. It offers three cuts that all showcase the Spaniard’s passion for and ability to make great melodic tracks.

Up first, the title track is a spiritual bit of melodic tech house with rich melodies and driving beats. As it unfolds you truly get swept up in the majesty of it all and stay locked in the groove throughout.

Then comes Smeed, a more deep and downbeat cut that is late night and romantic with its gentle chords, one finger piano notes and groaning bass.  Lastly, a Dub Diamond mix of this one goes even deeper into the night and is a truly spine tingling affair.  With tracks like this in his arsenal it is hard to work out why Zaragoza isn’t a more household name in underground circles.

The King Stay The King review on DMC World Magazine

septiembre 18, 2015

Fran Zaragoza’s The King Stay The King has been included on DMC World Magazine House reviews

Madrid’s Fran Zaragoza gets the nod for the latest release on the Depaart label and boy does he come up with the goods. After years of running his own parties, holding down various residencies and relaxing on lots of top labels, he has a fine collection of tools and an even better collection of ideas, as this EP proves. This release opens up with the grandly titled The King Stay The King, and is a spiritual bit of house music with lots of patient build up, some spacey atmospheres and carefully crafted melodies and synths that are truly artful and musical. The track really transports you somewhere and keeps your attention locked. Smeed is then even more stripped back, deeper and more patient. It has chilly chords and depth charged sonar sounds that really sooth mind, body and soul. It’s a fine track to drop right at the high point of your set and the dub diamond mix ups the spiritual, melodic ante by layering in even more rippling, spine tingling melodies. Overall this EP proves Zaragoza has a rare knack for melody and serve groove making that makes him a classy producer indeed.

Fran Zaragoza's forthcoming EP The King Stay The King on Waatshake

agosto 28, 2015

Fran Zaragoza’s forthcoming EP “The King Stay The King” has been reported by Wattshake Spanish media blog.

The King Stay The King’, referencia 028 de Depaart, es el debut del productor madrileño Fran Zaragoza con el sello madrileño/berlinés. El creador de Sundaze y Blackout nos presenta dos ‘tracks’ originales, ‘The King Stay The King’ y ‘Smeed’, y un ‘Dub Diamond Mix’ de este último.

‘The King Stay The King’, corte que da título al EP,  se compone de grandes atmósferas y líneas melódicas como grandes elementos protagonistas. El tema, apto tanto para una escucha tranquila como la pista de baile, destaca por su ‘drop’ central con una progresión totalmente absorbente.

‘Smeed’, segunda pista del EP, aporta armonía y frescura gracias en buena parte a las guitarras de Gaspar Simón, guitarrista del grupo madrileño Bultur. Además, ‘Smeed’ cuenta con una versión más adaptada al sonido ‘club’ gracias a su ‘Dub Diamond Mix’.
