Shaun Frank details upcoming tour and unleashes ‘New Order’ mix [Exclusive]
Shaun Frank‘s stunning 2015 was comprised of two major releases: one alongside Oliver Heldens on “Shades of Grey” and another with KSHMR entitled “Heaven.” The Toronto-bred producer also recently teamed up with LA’s SNBRN and Dr. Fresch for a throbbing house cut, “New Order,” which served as the inspiration for his new tour.
Frank is currently on a tear across the US hitting both coasts and everywhere in between including a show in DC, which is a part of our Soundcheck showcase series. To celebrate his upcoming performance, Shaun Frank hatched an exclusive mix full of club-geared cuts from CID, HI-LO, Gorgon City, and Drezo. We also gained some personal insights into what the New Order tour entails.
Since your new track with SNBRN and Dr. Fresch is called “The New Order” and your upcoming tour claims the same, what is the meaning behind the name and how did it come about?
SNBRN, Dr Fresch, and I, have been really good friends for a while now. We’ve always been exchanging tunes and playing random B2B sets together. I think the reason we all vibe so well together is because we are all really passionate ushering a new chapter into Dance Music, and that’s where the concept of The New Order came from. We are all very excited to be apart of the future of House, and Dance music.
During the first part of your tour, you played a couple of shows in India. What was your impression of the dance music scene there?
It was so amazing to hear the crowd singing along to my songs like “Shades Of Grey” and “Heaven.” I sometimes forget how far reaching putting a song on the Internet can go. The people, the food, and the dance music culture was amazing, and I can’t wait to go back. I think we’re already planning more Asia dates in the later part of this year.
What makes the New Order tour different than other shows you have played in the past?
I’m definitely digging a little deeper for obscure and underground tracks for The New Order tour. We want the nights to be a non-stop feels & groove, and also introduce the crowds to some stuff they maybe haven’t heard yet, as well as some underrated classics. The B2B2B at the end of the night only gets weirder :)
