This page is dedicated
to the honorable Frankie Robo, a legendary DJ based in Brooklyn, NY who was active from 1993 to 2001. Frankie Robo started
DJing with his cousin Fabrizio in the early ‘90s. His main genres of music were Techno, Rave, Hard House and some Hip-Hop
doing parties from Brooklyn to Manhattan all the way to the foreign lands of Long Island.
In the mid ‘90s, under
the name Frankie Roboe, this DJ was on a tear making mix tapes with M.C. Too Tall (then known as John A. Krantz) and another
legendary DJ by the name of Spoke (Richard Boos). The trio became famous for these mix tapes and performed at random parties
in both public and private venues. They called themselves Puttin’ Headz Out. They never made a full-blown album, never
did a show at a traditional venue, never made it past the concept level but there have been two songs released under the name
P.H.O. featuring John A. Krantz on cassette and CD… “Live From Steeplechase Park” was released in the summer
of 1996 and just slightly more than two years later, “Bring The Drama” was released. Dropping the “e”
and becoming Robo again, Frankie again started making mix tapes, his most known late ‘90s mix tape was titled “RoBotz”
and if you own a copy, you got yourself a piece of history and great music, not to mention, a valuable collector’s piece.
Robo retired shortly after 9/11 for reasons relating in no way at all to the tragedy but the rumors always fly that
he can make an appearance at any moment. A hardcore vinyl user, Robo is no stranger to digital medium either. He is legendary,
he is great, he is Frankie Robo. Believe it.
