François Kevorkian sits down with Classic Album Sundays founder and radio host/DJ Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy for an in-depth discussion of his musical inspirations.
François is one of the most influential names in dance and electronic music, and a key figure in the transition from disco to house, techno and beyond.
After moving from France to New York City in 1975 he found a career DJing in clubs such as the Paradise Garage and Studio 54, while mixing classic disco tracks ‘In The Bush’ by Musique, ‘Keep On’ by D-Train, ‘Beat The Street’ by Sharon Redd, and ‘Go Bang’ by Dinosaur L. Having produced remixes for artists including Kraftwerk, Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Diana Ross, Gloria Estefan and U2, he returned to DJing globally in the Nineties and at his Body&SOUL events, while developing his own music, such as eternal tracks “Hypnodelic” and “Time & Space”, in ever deeper ways.
Amidst the chat, François will play records by some of his favourite artists along with some of his own work. The evening concludes with a Q&A with the audience.
Classic Album Sundays, founded by Colleen Murphy, is a long-running series of events (not always on Sundays!) and a rich website that tells the stories behind the albums that have shaped our culture and our lives.
