#dasoforever - 'Every second full of burning passion'
Connaisseur is releasing an album, the producer continued to produce during the months prior to his death.
Daso Franke was born in Poona, India, but made his mark in the electronic music world after relocating to Germany - first in Cologne, then Berlin. His earliest releases came out in the mid-2000s.
On Easter Monday, April the 2nd, 2018 Daso passed away after a long bout with cancer. Connaisseur Recordings lost one of their most important artists and some of his best music was released with them.
Connaisseur head Alex Flitsch was approached by Franke's father at the funeral, asking if Flitsch would release an album Daso finalised in the months before his death. 'We didn't decide on doing so lightly, knowing that the release of a post-mortem album can bring up certain issues', Flitsch says. 'However, in the end, we agreed to do it, as we sincerely strive to create a final memento for Daso's musical legacy.'
The self-titled album 'Daso' will be out April 5th, three days after the first anniversary of Daso's obit.
