Fast-rising dance star Franky Wah has been wowing clubland with his illuminating and sweeping productions on labels like Ministry Of Sound, Club Sweat, Anjunadeep, and more since first emerging on the scene in 2018. As legions of fans continue to rally behind his sound and sets worldwide, the artist broke out in 2022 with SHÈN Recordings — a record label and luxury brand that “pushes the boundaries of progressive club culture.” The imprint first hit the airwaves with the arrival of his two-track EP in April last year, “More Than You’ll Ever Know/Surrender (ft. Clementine Douglas).” The producer then rounded off 2022 with the widely received mixtape This Is SHÈN. This beautifully curated 27-track journey features a collaboration with Sasha while simultaneously introducing the label’s dedication to Chinese philosophy, religion, and mythology.

Since then, SHÈN Recordings has been hard at work, dropping dreamy, driving, and cinematic records from Vintage Culture, Cristoph, Jem Cooke, Shadow Child, Korolova, Marsh, Giorgia Angiuli, and more. In addition to building up a roster of releases from some of clubland’s finest, the label launched its debut Ibiza residency this summer at Club Chinois. To celebrate this burgeoning imprint’s shining achievements, we caught up with Franky Wah to learn what he believes are three of SHÈN Recordings’ most essential tracks and his plans for his label’s future.
