François,originating from France but growing up in the New York underground club scene has played at the world’s best clubs guesting at The Paradise Garage, The Loft and Studio 54. His Wave Music label, Body & Soul parties and his latest venture, Deep Space NYC all reflect François' eclectic and futuristic style of DJ'ing and music.
