Legendary New York collective Body & SOUL join us at E1 London for an NYC Disco special 8 hour set on Saturday 31st March 2018.
Body&SOUL was founded in 1996 by François K. and John Davis. The Sunday afternoon party, which took place at Club Vinyl in New York’s Tribeca area, soon became one of New York’s most revered weekly parties. The three DJs, Danny Krivit, Joaquin ‘Joe’ Claussell and François K. delivered a unique soulful mix of very organic and spiritual dance music grooves, and became standard-bearers for New York house. On any given Sunday at Body&SOUL, people from all walks of life, all ages, all races, raised their hands in the air and gave thanks for the unifying force that brought them back week after week: the music.
Danny Krivit’s DJ career began at the Loft in NY, a mecca for DJs starting in the 70’s. There, he began a long-term collaboration with Larry Levan and François K. DJing for over 40 years. Danny has an impressive knowledge in rare disco, funk, soul and jazz and known as the “King of the Re-edit”, a technique that he pioneered in the early 80’s.
Joaquin ‘Joe’ Claussell is one of New York’s most highly respected dance figures, for his work as a DJ, producer, and remixer, as well as for his label Spiritual Life Music, all of which reflect his deep love for and his eclectic and multicultural taste in dance music. Much of the global dance movement can be traced back to Claussell’s highly percussive style that incorporates Latin, African, Brazilian and other world rhythms with elements of jazz, rock, disco, and live instrumentation.
François K’s career in dance and electronic music goes back to the late 70’s in the New York clubs and at the disco label Prelude. He mixed loads of records on the European electro/new wave scene in the 80’s and started his Wave Music label in the 90’s. He has worked his mixing magic on about 1000 records to date and as a DJ and a producer is now exploring the dub and techno sides of electronic music.
