World of Echoes: Francois K

First broadcast date: 20 March 2018

World of Echoes is a monthly four hour show from house legend François K.

Taking a soulful and eclectic approach, François blends together an array of musical genres and adding his own commentary.

This month’s show explores remix legend and DJ extraordinaire Walter Gibbons. I will feature a 90 minute segment excerpted from one of his last DJ sets ever recorded, at Yellow Space Lab in Tokyo circa 1992. The show also includes an interview with one of his closest DJ friends, Tony Smith.
