DJsounds in New York – Pt. 2, The DJs: François K

Sun 13.07.2008

A hugely influential and passionate electronic pioneer François Kevorkian has been into music and the New York scene for longer than some of you guys will have been alive! Yes, the gracious and giving Mr K’s seen an awful lot of culture-shaking clubs (Paradise Garage, Studio 54, The Loft, Better Days) and DJs come and stay/go, in the city that never sleeps. Born in France but living in NYC since the mid-70s, François has collaborated with myriad artists such as Eurythmics, Diana Ross, U2 and Depeche Mode (and the (A) list goes on... and on...). These days François continues to spin eclectically around the world, also running an independent label, Wave Music, and his own night, Deep Space, at Cielo in NYC. Deep Space is five years young this year, a year that also sees François unleash ‘Masterpiece’, a triple mix journey for Ministry of Sound. Words: LRC
