Asha Franco

If variety is the spice of life then Asha Franco’s reputation is a well-stocked spice aisle.

Drawing on her diverse cultural roots and musical foundations in jazz, Asha showcases, curates, and sets a musical standard that is equal parts diverse as it is vibrant. 

When it comes to racking up good thymes and big dills, the list is as long as it is deep. The Melbourne based musician, curator, and DJ has brought her magic to many of the city’s iconic dancefloors, airwaves, digital ethers, and swamps. A true icon of the scene, you’ve probably bore witness to her signature touch, whether through her hotpot curations in the club — by way of Lil Stank Ass Witches events or via the airwaves —in her show Earth Tones on Skylab Radio. ...And who are we to say no to a golden hour sound bath courtesy of her ongoing residency at Runner Up? (Hint: we’re not! It’s been 1.5 years of ‘yes chef’ from us).

The short end of the long is that Asha’s a trusted selector and an amazing person, and we’re so honoured to be ascending the 2023 swamp in inimitable style with Asha leading the charge.
