Goldfish and Paul Strange presents Musik Matters featuring Francois K (NYC) plus local supporting DJ’s: Gary Todd, Matt Cahill, Ben Ashton, Alan Thomas and Phil Toke.
Born and raised in France, Kevorkian’s passion for music led to playing the drums during his teen years. He moved to the United States in 1975, where he hoped to find more challenging situations than those back home. Due to the heavy competition for any gig as a drummer in those days, he instead tried his hand at becoming a DJ in underground New York City clubs, around 1976. His career then skyrocketed, and he quickly made this his full-time occupation. He taught himself tape editing and started making disco medleys, some of which are still popular to this day, such as Rare Earth’s “Happy Song”. His first remix, of a Patrick Adams production, “In The Bush” by Musique became a wild success both in clubs and on the radio.
