Easy Star Sound System & Friends To Make NYC Debut Alongside Francois K April 6
“Deep Space’s mission is to explore how dub has influenced so many forms of music,” says the night’s produer Erica Newell. “Not only as an aesthetic, but as an approach to producing and mixing music both in the recording studio and on the dance floor.” A Monday-night fixture at Cielo nightclub in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District for the past twelve years, Deep Space makes excellent use of Cielo’s award-winning Funkion One sound system (oft cited as the best in NYC) as it explores earthshaking frequencies of subsonic bass vibrations. Deep Space’s resident DJ Francois K was recently named “Resident Dj of the Year” by the 2015 Nightclub Awards. To mark their 12-year anniversary, Deep Space will welcome Easy Star Sound System with foundation artists Carlton Livingston, Lady Anne, and Ranking Joe pon the microphone center. Details After The Jump…Over the years, Deep Space’s stellar guest roster has including disco icon Giorgio Moroder‘s first US DJ set, to the NY debut of Germany’s minimal dub producers Rhythm & Sound, to UK dubstep pioneers Digital Mystikz, to Haitian house master Joaquin “Joe” Claussell, to dub poet Mutabaruka to Me’shell Ndegeocello with jazz saxophone icon Oliver Lake, to Ariwa sound architect Mad Professor and Adrian Sherwood. Easy Star is the crew responsible for the best-selling Dub Side of the Moon, which deconstructs Pink Floyd’s classic album inna rub-a-dub style. NYC-based Easy Star has emerged as one of the most influential indie labels in the roots reggae business. Selector Michael G will be digging deep in the crates for the sound’s New York debut.
