Franz “The Hybrid” One (Franz Ramon Ates), was born in Tyler, TX, December 8, and is affectionately called “Sincere” by his family and friends.He is The Executive for global independent label Metal 2 Music/Lust Cove3nant/SMG Records, based in Arlington, TX and the Director of Operations for Erecnis Entertainment Enterprise. (www.metal2music.com) (www.erecnis.com).
Franz a God-fearing father is an innovative producer, musician, songwriter, a host, international voice-over artist, video game character, a Nerve DJ, and an MTV.com artist. He is the owner of Ates Advertising Agency (www.atesadvertisingagency.weebly.com ), Hybrid Fashions online jewelry store (www.HybridFashions.com) and the Co-Owner of Shoez~N~Motion, online women’s shoe boutique. (www.ShoezNMotion.com).
Franz has composed jingles for major brands and has had the opportunity to produce for, manage, and work with artists of varied musical backgrounds, signed and independent, both in the United States and internationally. His business and executive experience defines the creative venue of “independent world music.”
If the publicity garnered for releases is indicative of an artist’s relevance and success, then Franz “The Hybrid” One will soon become a household name, and “Is It True (feat. Black Earl)” will be huge. Evidently it is not only his most accessible track so far, but also a compelling crossover song. Sonically, it is a bigger departure from his older work. Franz “The Hybrid” One, seems to now be in a better place, is true to himself and consistent; the material is still raw and honest, the production is on point in its particular execution, the delivery mesmerizing and haunting as ever.
Real artists are supposed not to ever sit stagnant. No legendary artist made music that sounded the same. With so many references to his previous work, this is hardly the watered-down generic pop music you’ve come to expect from this day and age of internet.
Franz “The Hybrid” One is experimenting, expanding, opening himself to a new demographic, trying to become monumental. It is all about progress. In fact, with this very record he gives traditional sounds a foundational makeover. The sound is radically different; but the message of creativity has not changed, only the way it is delivered.
The music on “Is It True (feat. Black Earl)”, is dark and sometimes harrowing-sounding, like viewing ones visage in a fractured mirror, yet incredibly beautiful, once you get past the initial surprise of the sounds – Very original music for a select set of connoisseurs!
