reade truth + walrus + taylor shockley

We are pleased to have the NY legend and pioneer, Reade Truth, share some records in the Sound Room at Public Records on December 13th. Rocking the decks since 1990, Reade has been refining his taste for nearly 30 years in the international techno and house scene with early releases on legendary labels such as Sonic Groove, Planet E, Strictly Rhythm, Direct Drive, Path Recordings, and more. Lately, he’s been releasing new music on labels such as Cartulis Music, Blkmarket Music, Warm Fiction, Mode of Expression, Nsyde, and his own imprint – Path Recordings; where he’s also reissued some earlier releases.

Walrus is a quixotic DJ and producer hailing from Brussels that revels in idiosyncratic club Music. His DJ-sets are carefully crafted assaults on what club music is often perceived to be. His record label Basic Moves is an adventurous journey through the outer limits of house, techno and electro. Fresh or old tracks, current or unreleased gems, the Basic Moves imprint rephrases sounds and influences spanning multiple generations while keeping an outsider’s spirit at heart. Walrus spends his time away from the stage putting in hours of studio work, he used to help out the legendary Brussels record shop Dr. Vinyl and now takes care of the second hand section at Crevette Records, adhering to a relentless routine of searching for new, exciting music.

deep space reunion w/ françois k

Deep Space returns to earth after a year in orbit. The lauded, multi-award winning party which was at home at Cielo and Output (RIP) for 15 year, brought trippy vibes and dub-drenched mixes to open-minded dance floor fanatics. Known for its creatively inspired and open-minded inclusion of all music forms that were distantly or directly inspired by dub, the party saw a veritable who’s who’s in guests ranging from disco icons, bass music founders, dub developers and post-modern instigators. Techno, house and Afrobeat had as much of a place on the dancefloor as jazz, Brazilian and the words of great poets. The guests of the party often opted to perform crate-digging, signature “Deep Space” sets that often allowed artists to explore a side of their artistry they typically didn’t get to share.

Behind the party is the vision of founder François K. who is bringing to Public Records a rare 6-hour, extended Deep Space set.

“We feel it’s important for all of us Deep Space heads to resume our adventurous journey together. I’m so very much looking forward to playing an extended six-hour Deep Space set all night long on Sunday, December 15. We’ve been missing our music family, and can’t wait to reconnect dancing through those dubby sounds.” – François K.

The party returns for one night to reconnect with its NYC family and fellow earthlings.

This event is free before 9pm with RSVP. RSVP does not guarantee entry.
