World of Echoes: François K – Dawn of Disco08.01.21
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 François K retraces the steps that led up to disco music and the start of DJ culture in NYC. This segment focuses on its early beginnings until right before the advent of the 12″ single. Its rapid evolution during these seminal days is often overlooked, and many of the most iconic tracks from that time period are featured here, including a couple of unreleased versions as well as some lesser-known but very influential material.
