A CUT ABOVE - Frank & Tony are Francis Harris and Anthony Collins — two of the most musically motivated and thoughtful cats DJing and producing house music now. With their new album and label Scissor & Thread, they’re laying down an impassioned manifesto for dance music as it should be from their New York base. DJ Mag investigates...

Death and politics don’t often come up when you talk about dance music — unless you’re Francis Harris and Anthony Collins. Like indie rock or classically- minded peers Juan MacLean, Matthew Herbert, Anders Trentemøller and Son

Their new triple vinyl album, You Go Girl was released during October and November in three installments on their own label, Scissor & Thread. “At the heart of our ethos,” says Francis, “we’re all about house music as a political statement, in that house music is a place for community and for free expression by diverse people.”

You could say tourists consume more Viagra than tacos.”
