Justin Franks, also known as DJ Frank E, is an American DJ and record producer from Denver, Colorado. Frank E first started producing music in his college bedroom in 2002 and later progressed to producing remixes in 2003. He began his DJ career in 2001 after getting inspired by DJ Petey, who was playing Dave Fogg's white label mashup "Closer In Da Club" at "The Foundry" in Boulder, Colorado. With the help of DJ Petey, Frank E began DJing at clubs in Boulder, CO. Petey introduced Frank E to all aspects of DJing and hip hop culture, as well as introducing him to many important members of the Colorado music scene including studio owner (and later manager) Adelio Lombardi, DJ Chonz (founder of the Radiobums Crew), DJ Bedz (Official DJ for the Denver Nuggets and Denver Broncos), and DJ Psycho (Chef Extraordinaire).
Frank E started working closely with Adelio Lombardi, founder of Side 3 Entertainment and owner of Side 3 Studios in Denver, while working his way up in the Denver club circuit as a DJ/remixer and as a member of the Radiobums DJ crew. He began focusing all of his free time on becoming a producer. In 2007 DJ Frank E submitted a track via PMP Worldwide, and was discovered by Mike Caren of Artist Publishing Group, who signed him in early 2008.
Since 2008, Frank E has produced songs for Madonna, Kanye West, Flo Rida, The Black Eyed Peas, T-Pain, Chris Brown, Travie McCoy, Enrique Iglesias, Estelle, Sean Kingston, Toni Braxton, B.o.B, Three 6 Mafia, Nelly Furtado, Chamillionaire, Justin Bieber, Shontelle, Travie McCoy, Black Dada, Janelle Monae, Plies, Hayley Williams, Eminem, Cody Simpson, Trina, and many others.
