DBF

Posted on 24/08/2017

Anyone interested in music produced in France over the past 50 years should have a deep look into the work of producer / engineer / mixer / musician Dominique Blanc-Francard, nicknamed DBF. Getting an early start in the business in 1970 in the legendary Chateau de Herouville studios, recording the likes of Pink Floyd, Elton John, David Bowie, Cat Stevens and T.Rex, he quickly established himself as a succesful freelance engineer, and went on to work on much of the most classic and iconic music of the past 5 decades. I’ve been lucky enough to work with Dominique on several projects in his state of the art Labomatic Studios, and each time has been a precious learning experience. I’m currently thoroughly enjoying reading his memoirs “It’s a Teenager Dream”, and I would recommend it to anyone. I hope it will be translated into English someday, the content here is definitely of interest to many people way beyond the French language sphere. You can get it here.
