Nectar for Isis by DJ Frane

"Like a bird you're always flyin' away."

Artwork - Journey to the Planet of Birds by DJ Frane

This man is the master of marijuana music. With three full albums on beats to blaze to, a stoner will never go hungry for a good tune to tune out to (that’s fun to say). I’ve featured Frane’s music countless times, and I still can’t get enough of it. Although, each album contains a wondrous story composed of an eclectic set of beats, his final album, Journey to the Planet of Birds, left me awestruck. How this man can pull together such varying beats to create a stunning soundscape is beyond me, but I like it!

I wanted to show off “Nectar for Isis” not because it’s my favorite track, but I think it’s an overall good display of Frane’s talent. The hypnotic vocals slapped on top of a downtempo, trip-hop beat is an eargasm in its own right, but Frane slides in, ever so delicately, a classic piano solo, which tops it off nicely. One thing Frane loves to do is change up the beat in the middle of the piece. The second half of this track was featured in a post I did on Some Cool Ass Ringtones. There’s a few different ringtones to choose from, so if your in need check it out (I’m actually using one myself).

DJ Frane is one of the main reasons we started this site up. Anything he comes out with amazes us each time. If ya wanna here more about him subscribe to our Facebook Page, so you’ll get the updates sent right to ya (and so we know you like us). Enjoy!

    I have to say two things about this article the first is that the sounds are mesmerizing. I played listening intently at first and as I went on to do other things it was still in the back of my head it was very relaxing for some reason, which brings me to second thing I have to say is for those reading it give it a chance because it takes a second to let it settle don’t turn it off right away!

  2. Yea, you definitely need to get use to Frane’s sound, but once you do you’ll be hooked. He’s really something I’ve never heard before.
