December 14: Dimitri From Paris & Francois K. Super Disco Experience
Deep Space welcomes back SUPER DISCO EXPERIENCE, a rare, all-night collaboration featuring Dimitri from Paris with Francois K. live behind the mixing board.
As the French Ambassador of stylish club sounds, Dimitri from Paris is everything his nation could be proud of: a DJ, producer, and remixer of the highest standard, and a stylish snake-hipped pin-up with French reserve. In a nutshell, there are two distinct sides to Dimitri: a undeniable elegant and, a devoted dance music fanatic.
In February 2005 the French government awarded him the very official rank of Knight of the Arts and Letters. Along with Air and Cassius he was the first artist from the Electronica field to be given such a distinction.
His musical influences are deeply rooted in 70s Funk and Disco sounds that spawned todays House music but also original soundtracks from 50's and 60's cult movies.
His radio show in the 80’s came to pioneer house music all over France, making him a cult figure with dance music connoisseurs.
Dimitri remixed hundreds of artistd as diverse BjÖrk, the Cardigans, James Brown, New Order, Quincy Jones, Teddy Pendergrass, Nile Rogers’ Chic, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and Donny Hathaway. In 1997 he became world famous with the release of his first album "Sacrebleu" on Bob Sinclar's Yellow Productions label. In the late 90's Dimitri followed the album's success with several compilations including the cult "Deluxe House of Funk" and the infamous "A Night At The Playboy Mansion" (Virgin) lately charted again in Mixmag's top 100 of best compilations ever. A second artist album, "Cruising Attitude" was released in 2004 to be closely followed by his first outing on UK's premier dance music label Defected: "Dimitri from Paris In the House".
2005 saw Dimitri go back to his Funk and Disco roots, with fellow super collector Joey Negro for "Kings of Disco" (BBE). In 2006 he offered his "In the House of Love" outing to Valentine Day's lovers. Later on he produced Los Amigos Invisibles "Super Pop Venezuela" album which grabbed a nomination for a grammy award ! 2007 saw the release of the "Cocktail Disco” (BBE), 2008 marked the frenchman's "Return to the Playboy Mansion" (Defected) with a lush double CD of sex tinged grooves, and in 2009, Dimitri returned to his early DJ days with "NightDubbin'" (BBE) a fresh collection of 80's dubbed out dance classics with help from old mates The Idjut Boys. Dimitri then partnered with DJ Bob Sinclar on the "Knights Of The Playboy Mansion" compilation project with Defected, and then created "Back In The House" again with the ever growing Defected imprit. Over the course of his 15 year spanning discography our man from Paris has sold well over a million copies of his eclectic outings.

The pair’s debut, Skin, was released on Buddah Bar, At the same time, the duo began releasing remixes and MKL’s first contribution to Wave Music – the celebrated label founded by the legendary Francois K – was remixing Calm’s “People From The Earth & The Sun” with Soy Sos, which was released on a single alongside a remix from Dixon. Shortly after that, the 3 Generations team worked on “Slavery Days" out Spiritual Life Music, a label that combined world music and soulful house. “Slavery Days” got over ten licensing agreements and was included on the highly influential “ Body & Soul Vol. 4"
“Seven Times” – Lion1Music’s first release in 2004 – was a 12” that blended future jazz and deep house and utilized the production chemistry that had developed between Michael Lopez and Herman Pearl.
"The goal is to bring different musical communities together under one banner and, in the process, increase the global awareness of Lion1Music,” explains MKL. “We’re a progressive label for progressive music of all genres.” Tastemakers at major record labels soon became of MKL’s abilities which in turn have led to remixes for John Legend (“Green Light&rdquo.
