Their first releases proved the duo were destined for future success.
Since 2010, Frankey & Sandrino have continued to release a multitude of records such as SAVE in 2014 on Dixon and Âme’s Innervisions label.

Their most notable record Acamar/Lukida was released in the summer of the same year also on Innervisions and showed to be an anthem for electronic music lovers and festival goers on an international scale.

It hints at the fact they acquire the ability not to forget where they emerged from, yet more importantly, where they’re going. Ranging from a synth style release from Etienne Jaumet to Romanian ‘Doina’ music which is extremely nostalgic to Sandrino.
