Anybody care to give us a bit of info on Pole Folder...
Where he's from? residency? recent sets?
Familiar with his tracks, but don't know much about him
Benoit Franquet started out his musical career at the age of 5, starting out by learning to play the trumpet and guitar before later learning the art of composition that lead him to perform within a symphony orchestra, also playing in brass ensembles on regular occasion. As Benoit grew, so did his musical diversity and at the age of 15 he discovered rock music, channelling his musical energies into rock bands and by the age of 18 he had formed his first band, 'Dirty Slip' where he added song writing and to his fast growing repertoire, further band ventures seeing him play live and tour around his home country of Belgium.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Benoit soon became influenced by the thriving techno scene being developed between clubs like Le Bocaccio and La Rocca, becoming influenced by the electronic sounds made famous at these venues, which pushed him into a direction utilising electronic sequencers. Ever curious, Benoit wanted to push this curiosity further and with long time friend Alain Bultot, they set up a professional studio where their group Ragged Life was formed.
Several tracks were created, the most notable of which, 'I'll Be Right Here' becoming a massive anthem in the Belgium club scene and grabbing the attention of Sony Records Benelux, who realising the untapped potential that Benoit had, signed not only the track, but Benoit himself to a publishing deal, which quickly developed into a production role for many artists that Sony were dealing with. One of his first production jobs for Sony was in co-operation with an artist called Petra on the track 'Angel' which became an underground club anthem once more.
Benoit was also in tune with the fast rising global dance scene and after discovering the sounds of DJs Sasha and John Digweed soon moved into a deeper direction under the name of Pole Folder. His first release, Apollo Vibes, was quickly signed to John Digweed's record label, Bedrock and since then two further singles have been released, in addition to the 'Moon In A Blue Sky EP' on Sunkissed Records. John Digweed, researching all of Benoit's work over the years soon signed Benoit up to an album deal, one of few artists to be offered a deal on the Bedrock imprint, and now the next chapter in the career of Benoit Franquet is about to unfold as he works towards creating an artist album, a venture that within the sometimes restrictive world of dance music looks set to rewrite the rules, and he will also further his career via production work on the debut album of fast rising NYC based artist Harland, set to be released in 2003 also
In addition to this, 2003 also sees Benoit take up residency on the Belgian based net radio station U4EA FM, with an international dj schedule growing just as much as the demand for his work as a remixer. No doubt this year will mark the next chapter in the story of Pole Folder.
