Francesco, thank you very much for answering a few questions for our Pumpkin-magazine! You’ve already played at Pumpkin the last two years. How would you describe the event for new visitors?

Pumpkin is the German halloween party for excellence, the atmosphere is different from any other parties and I love to play in from of thousands of people dressed in the most crazy ways. The soundsystem is lovely, and so i can only advice to all the new visitors to come and enjoy every single moment of it!


Your social media tells us that you like to play retro-games – which games do you play most of all and what do you like about them?

Damn! You findout my little hobbie!! Well I'm an 80s kid, grow up on turntables/computers and obviously videogames, I have most of the amazing memories of my childhood connected to certain games, like Mario, Donkey Kong or Street Fighter or Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid, I could spend hours and hours talking about music and videogames and sometimes they are strictly connected.


Why do you make your F.Noize performance with wearing a mask? How does it affect you?

I wear the Mask because I recive it long time ago, during a gig, and i thought was cool to use it in the act since was a Fan Present, the point is that it wasn't designed on my face, is not really easy for me to see what i have in front of me or around me, I can only see a limit space of the deck, but now I'm so used to it that i don't mind it anymore....


Your project “Scarphase” together with Partyraiser is very successful – did you expect that and what do you think makes it special?

The whole project came like a thunder, nobody was expecting it, not even me and when Wesley had this brilliant idea I could only be enthusiast of it! What makes it special is the feeling between the whole Team, we love what we do and we try to communicate it with the music and the Show, every time is unique and every time we had great reactions from the crowd so all this mixed together make it SPECIAL!


What can people expect from the brand new Scarphase album?

Beside our new solo tracks together with 2 great Dutch voices "Skits Vicious" and "Nick Nicolai", the brand new Scarphase album will include many collabs and remixes from some of the greatest artists of the Hardcore Scene, I don't want to spoiler too much but i can tell you that it’s going to be influenced by different styles and BPMs, so let's say it won't be the typical uptempo album!

Many thanks for having me and remember always F. Noize, no choice!!
