When one of the DJs that you looked up to your whole career calls you to sub for him at his party, you should show up. Francois K. is a pioneer, and one of the leaders in dance music culture. You may know him from Body & Soul and his productions, but Deep Space is his baby, and I’m thankful that he asked me to come participate.
