NYC DJ Francois K has just confirmed a private party in London for 400 people taking place on Friday 8th April. This is an exclusive event with a full spec bespoke sound system in an intimate East London studio space.
We bring you a perfect evening with the French adopted New Yorker - Mr Francois Kevorkian - Friday April 8th. In a private East London space, bespoke & top spec sound system, with numbers limited to 400 people.
This is no car park rave.
We're not giving him any musical genre to stick to and he'll be playing all night long.
Dance music legend Francois K has been manning the decks on-and-off for over 30 years. Three decades: a span of time that signifies a longevity seldom seen in the industry. And when you look at the course of his career, it becomes even more impressive. Kevorkian started out playing drums alongside Walter Gibbons, the man often credited with being the main inspiration to Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles, and soon became a regular guest at Studio 54, The Paradise Garage, and The Loft. After a short layoff to concentrate on small projects such as remixing now-classic tracks like Yazoo's "Situation," Dinosaur L's "Go Bang," and Musique's "In the Bush", mixing Depeche Mode's epochal Violator and Kraftwerk's Electric Café, Kevorkian returned to the heights of the DJ profession alongside Danny Krivit and Joe Claussell as a member of the Body & Soul trio. The group's Sunday parties at Club Vinyl are still reminisced over in glowing terms.
Kevorkian's current party, Deep Space, has been tipped as the heir to B&S's legacy. Held each Monday at Cielo in New York's Meatpacking District, the soiree drafts in an eclectic array of guests (Quiet Village, King Britt, DJ Spooky, to name but a few) and asks them to deliver sets that reflect Kevorkian's passion for deepness. The six-years-and-counting party's tagline says it all: "No dress code-just an open mind."

Francois K's life-affirming Minitek headlining set is a burner. Be on the lookout for a snippet of a Barack Obama speech, replacing the usual Martin Luther King sample.
