Francois K - Live at Electric Zoo Festival
Wed 22nd Dec, 2010 ITM-FM 740 viewsin
This New Years Eve, New York City titan Francois K returns at long last to Australia to warmly welcome 2011.
A true original of dance music, his boundless passion for creating dancefloor moments has carried him over three decades. It’s clear he’s as inspired now as when he first moved to New York from France at 21 with hopes of landing a job as a jazz drummer.
While the drum-kit taught him well, it was with a pair of turntables that Kevorkian grew to be a titan in his adopted city. Having made his name at seminal clubs like Paradise Garage and The Loft, at the height of the halcyon days he joined Danny Krivit and Joe Claussell as Body & Soul. As much now as then, he sees DJing as an exchange – if you trust his instincts, he’ll elevate your mind.
This set recorded live at the 2009 Electric Zoo Festival in New York should get you buzzed.
