KNIT and BASS...a Stitch Therapy party!

WEDNESDAY, JULY 4 Deep Space: Mission #1 lands at Dekalb Market, 3 pm  to 9 pm.
Featuring dj's: Francois K., King Britt, FaltyDL, Ilhan Ersahin (live on the sax), and dub poet Infinity. All Ages! Kids under 10 free. Discount advance tickets (which also get you in express entry) at

Welcome to Deep Space, an adventure into future dub, spacey vibes, and abstract grooves featuring resident DJ François K. For nine years Deep Space has thrown down a weekly Monday night party at club Cielo in Manhattan. For July 4th be prepared to celebrate your freedom to love all music. At Deep Space we take great liberty to explore a galaxy of music and mixing styles that have even the most remote connection to our almighty star of inspiration: planet dub. And while Deep Space is far from a dub party, we always pay our respect.


François K. tours worldwide for not only his soulful house dj sets, but also for his techno and dub mixes. He is revered as the co-creator of New York City’s legendary dance party Body&SOUL. Over the years he performed regularly at Paradise Garage, The Loft, Studio 54, Ministry of Sound, Sound Factory Bar, Twilo, Roxy, Fabric, Berghain, and Tresor, to name a few. In great demand, François has gone into the studio to produce/remix recordings by Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Jimmy Cliff, Underworld, Eurythmics, Bunny Wailer, U2, Ashford & Simpson with Maya Angelou, the Smiths, Dido, Finley Quaye, Diana Ross, Cure, Mick Jagger, Fishbone, Talvin Singh, D Train, Erasure, Yazoo, Black Uhuru, Thomas Dolby, and Jah Wobble. In 2005 François was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame.

For July 4th Francois will live mix and dub out the live sax performance of ILHAN ERSAHIN, the creator and artistic guide for all things dubby, Middle Eastern, jazzy, sublime and truly crate-digging at the mecca we love called Nublu.

Based in Philadelphia, King Britt  has always found a way to escape the strictures of any single category of music by working across genres such as deep house, hip-hop, broken beat, nu-jazz, funk and afro-tech. King toured worldwide with Digable Planets – the Grammy award winning hip-hop fusion band.  He has remixed for a diverse range of artists from Miles Davis, The OʼJays and Curtis Mayfield through to Macy Gray, Solange, Femi Kuti and Everything But The Girl and recently for Preservation Hall Jazz Ensemble feat. Mos Def, Glitch Mobb, Jay Haze and Dilouya. immersed in the possibilities of the dubstep, underground Brooklyn-based  unlocks a natural sense of the interconnectedness of electronic funk styles, back into NYC’s original garage and further back still towards disco. His the ‘Love Is A Liability’ album and ‘Bravery’ EP came just as the post-dubstep underground was becoming far more fluid, and his easy stylistic shifts provided the perfect bridge between the new garage of artists like Brackles and Geiom, the cosmic hip hop of LA and Glasgow, and those people who were falling in love with house music all over again.
