With regards to her other recent releases, I was most intrigued by her collaboration with Hannes Bieger for their release on Bedrock. "The collaboration with Hannes Bieger was quite straight forward. Me and Hannes have worked together on some material before, he is a great producer and I was really happy to receive a text from him asking me to put my vocals on a track he was working on. I was in my studio in that moment so I asked him to send me the track and one hour later I sent him the vocals back. He loved it and the track was done. It was the quickest collaboration of my life but also a lot of love and passion was put into the project and I think people can sense it when the track comes out."
Francesca runs two labels and there's a distinct difference between them. "Echolette and Echoe are both electronic music labels. I call Echolette, the female energy and the more slow, downtempo and musical label where Echoe, the male energy is strictly dance floor."
Crosstown Rebels, Damian Lazarus' esteemed label, helped catapult Francesca Lombardo to the level she is today, and she's still playing his parties these days. How big of a mentor and inspiration is Damian in her development as an artist? The answer is straightforward – "I love Damian, he is a friend and a very important figure in my life. I can't wait to work more with him. He has always believed in my music and loved it since day one, he is a big influence for me and I love what he does." With influences and believers like that, clearly she's on the right path.
