World of Echoes: François K

World of Echoes is a monthly four hour show from the French-born DJ, producer, remixer and and label owner François K. His career began at the Paradise Garage, Studio 54 and Loft in 70’s. He soon went on to become a significant studio hand for artists likes of Arthur Russell to Kraftwerk and a notable producer, working with and remixing artists from Diana Ross to Adam Ant. He has indisputably become one of the most influential artists in modern dance music. This month's program is entitled 'World of Echoes Meets Funky Sensation' as François takes a stroll through many of his favourite funk tracks from seminal artists such as Prince, The JB's, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, as well as more obscure pieces deserving to be heard. The show also features a sprinkling of fresh new music that complements this spirit. Artwork by: @tomozonyc_art
