Deep Space is the legendary party in NYC. Awarded many times as the “best party in New York City,” with “best resident dj” François K., Deep Space is evolving into a monthly party, Wednesdays at club Output in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. For 13 years Deep Space ran as a weekly party at Cielo. After a hiatus in Oct-November, 2016, we will launch our new residency at Output on Dec. 21, 2016.
Known as an adventure into future dub, spacey vibes, and abstract grooves, Deep Space features dj’s, musicians, dancers and poets who represent a breathtaking range of styles celebrating dub’s impact on so many forms of art. The party encourages the creative use of technology in the mixing booth and on stage. Dj’s are invited to play signature “Deep Space sets” which are notably eclectic, spacey, and imaginative, while drawing dancers onto the club’s floor.
François K. is revered as the co-creator of New York City’s legendary dance party Body&SOUL. He tours worldwide for not only his soulful house dj sets, but also for his techno and dub mixes. Over the years he performed at Studio 54, Paradise Garage, The Loft, Ministry of Sound, Sound Factory Bar, Twilo, Roxy and Club Yellow in Japan, 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, The 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. In 2016 Mixmag recognized François K. as one of the inventors of the remix as we know it.

Jon Martin grew up with deep roots in the Civil Rights movement and New York’s bohemian counterculture. Working at Twilo, he established lifelong friendships with notable nightlife figures including Godfather of House Frankie Knuckles, who introduced him to a cadre of legendary nightlife figures including Nicky Siano, Tedd Patterson and Eric Kupper, and taught him the basics of mixing, controlling a system and working a dancefloor. Knuckles was also a tremendous musical influence, schooling Jon inside the DJ booth of his Sound Factory Bar residency, as well as in the recording studio.
As Digital Content Director at King Street Sounds, Jon produced a number of underground house events in NYC, and contributed to the success of artists and projects including Ananda Project, Dennis Ferrer, Steal Vybe and Underground Artists United for Life. In the early 2000’s Jon worked closely with the legendary Dave Mancuso to produce quarterly Loft events in New York City.
Jon created the sub:culture brand to funnel all of these disparate energies into one direction, and has made numerous appearances on terrestrial, internet and satellite radio both in the United States and internationally. Today, he continues on his mission to deliver “the medicine in the music” with his sub:culture events, as a co-owner of KID Recordings, with his weekly mixshow sub:culture selections on InDaMixWorldwide, and as a staff contributor to Starvue Loft in Bushwick.
Liza Jessie Peterson is a renowned actress, poet, playwright, educator and activist who has been steadfast in her commitment to incarcerated populations both professionally and artistically, but specifically with adolescent boys and girls detained at Rikers Island for eighteen years. She has worked as a program counselor for the Department of Corrections, a reentry specialist, a teaching artist (with poetry and theater), GED instructor for the Board of Education at Rikers Island, and a life skills workshop facilitator. She was recently featured in Ava DuVernay’s documentary The 13th (Netflicks) and was a consultant on Bill Moyers documentary RIKERS (PBS).
She has written several plays, including, The Peculiar Patriot, where she performed excerpts of it in over 35 penitentiaries across the country and opened for Angela Davis at Columbia University’s conference on mass incarceration.
Also known for her exceptional poetic skills, Liza began her poetry career at the Nuyorican Poets Café and was a vital member of the enclave of notable poets who were part of the “underground slam poetry” movement. It was this electric group of artists that inspired Russell Simmons to bring “spoken word” to HBO where Liza appeared on two episodes of Def Poetry.
As an actress Liza appeared in several feature films: Love the Hard Way (costarring with Pam Grier and Adrien Brody), Spike Lee’s, Bamboozled, K. Shalini’s, A Drop of Life, and Jamie Catto’s, What About Me.
