Deep Space finally lands in BROOKLYN!
Welcome to Deep Space, an adventure into future dub, spacey vibes, and abstract grooves featuring resident DJ François K. For nine years Deep Space has thrown down a weekly Monday night party at club Cielo. For July 4th be prepared to celebrate your freedom to love all music. At Deep Space we take great liberty to explore a galaxy of music and mixing styles that have even the most remote connection to our almighty star of inspiration: planet dub. And while Deep Space is far from a dub party, we always pay our respect.
Please join us, and yes, for those of you who can't kick yourselves to get out on a Monday (after all these years, for shame)....it's your turn to show up. And yes, it's an all ages Deep Space!
RAIN or SHINE. Dekalb Market is setting up picnic tents around the dance floor to keep you happy, cool and dry.
Dekalb Market is a multi-purpose cultural destination featuring a new outdoor event space with a full season of curated music, art, food, film and eclectic experiences in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn. Situated over an entire square block – voted best New York Architecture of 2011 by New York Observer – Dekalb Market is built from recycled shipping containers converted into over 60 food & retail shops which frame a distinct space for this year’s outdoor events and programs.
François K. tours worldwide for not only his soulful house dj sets, but also for his techno and dub mixes. He is revered as the co-creator of New York City’s legendary dance party Body&SOUL. Over the years he performed regularly at Paradise Garage, The Loft, Studio 54, Ministry of Sound, Sound Factory Bar, Twilo, Roxy, Fabric, Berghain, and Tresor, to name a few. In great demand, François has gone into the studio to produce/remix recordings by Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Jimmy Cliff, Underworld, Eurythmics, Bunny Wailer, U2, Ashford & Simpson with Maya Angelou, the Smiths, Dido, Finley Quaye, Diana Ross, Cure, Mick Jagger, Fishbone, Talvin Singh, D Train, Erasure, Yazoo, Black Uhuru, Thomas Dolby, and Jah Wobble. In 2005 François was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame.
For July 4th Francois will live mix and dub out the live sax performance of ILHAN ERSAHIN, the creator and artistic guide for all things dubby, Middle Eastern, jazzy, sublime and truly crate-digging at the mecca we love called Nublu.
Based in Philadelphia, King Britt has been breaking the traditional boundaries and forging a unique path as a producer, musician, DJ, label boss and media revolutionary for over 20 years. King has always found a way to escape the strictures of any single category of music by working across genres such as deep house, hip-hop, broken beat, nu-jazz, funk and afro-tech. King toured worldwide with Digable Planets – the Grammy award winning hip-hop fusion band. He produced Sylk130’s first album (ʻWhen The Funk Hits The Fanʼ) which sold half a million units through his own Ovum label. He has remixed for a diverse range of artists from Miles Davis, The OʼJays and Curtis Mayfield through to Macy Gray, Solange, Femi Kuti and Everything But The Girl and recently for Preservation Hall Jazz Ensemble feat. Mos Def, Glitch Mobb, Jay Haze and Dilouya. http://kingbritt.com
The breakthrough with Brooklyn-based Drew Lustman aka FaltyDL’s tracks came when he dropped the tempo and allowed his beats to breathe, which found him a natural home on the British label Planet Mu, immersed in the possibilities of the dubstep underground. Centering on the rhythms of UK garage provided the key which unlocked Drew’s natural sense of the interconnectedness of electronic funk styles, the limber beat patterns allowing him to forward from UKG into dubstep space, back into NYC’s original garage and further back still towards disco. His the ‘Love Is A Liability’ album and ‘Bravery’ EP came just as the post-dubstep underground was becoming far more fluid, and his easy stylistic shifts provided the perfect bridge between the new garage of artists like Brackles and Geiom, the cosmic hip hop of LA and Glasgow, and those people who were falling in love with house music all over again. http://faltydl.tumblr.com/
