Mastering the divide between meticulously measured beats and feeling out a live crowd, Franchise (fka “Francis Chiser”) has served the DJ scene incredibly well, providing many a memorable night. His passion for purely good music, particularly hip-hop and soul, has led him to become a tastemaker amongst both fans and peers, being readily called upon on any night from the Bay Area to Brooklyn to LA or wherever else good music is needed.
He's had the honor to spin alongside Shepard Fairey, Keys N Krates, Ali Shaheed Muhammed, Tony Touch, Matthew Africa, Shortkut, DJ Fuze, Platurn, Babu, Apollo, D-Sharp, Easy Mo Bee, Eleven, Just Blaze, Theory, Cutso, Goldenchyld, Dstrukt & more.
As his discipline and dedication to the art of DJing continue to shape his reputation, Franchise is just enjoying the ride, hoping to expand the minds of all who want to listen in. He currently holds residencies in the Bay Area for “Dance YourSF Clean”, "NAPPY BEES", "the BEATDOWN", & “the GENERATIONS party”.
