deep space residency launch w/ francois k

Deep Space returns to earth to launch their residency in the Public Records Sound Room. The lauded, multi-award winning party which was at home at Cielo and Output (RIP) for 15 years, 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.

“I am so excited to share the news that we’ve decided to start a new Deep Space monthly residency at Public Records in Brooklyn. Ever since Deep Space started in 2003, the party has always felt like the most natural vehicle for me to be able to express my deep love of the dub aesthetic in music, new and old, no matter what form it took. This can only be accomplished in a proper setting, with the right sound system and requires a comfortable and immersive atmosphere which allows our guests to fully become one with the music. We believe that Public Records will be the perfect new home for the continuation of our exploration of the ever-expanding musical cosmos as Deep Space takes place in their Sound Room on Sunday evenings. Hope you can join us!” – DJ François K.

Start time: 7pm

deep space residency launch w/ francois k

Deep Space returns to earth to launch their residency in the Public Records Sound Room. The lauded, multi-award winning party which was at home at Cielo and Output (RIP) for 15 years, 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.

“I am so excited to share the news that we’ve decided to start a new Deep Space monthly residency at Public Records in Brooklyn. Ever since Deep Space started in 2003, the party has always felt like the most natural vehicle for me to be able to express my deep love of the dub aesthetic in music, new and old, no matter what form it took. This can only be accomplished in a proper setting, with the right sound system and requires a comfortable and immersive atmosphere which allows our guests to fully become one with the music. We believe that Public Records will be the perfect new home for the continuation of our exploration of the ever-expanding musical cosmos as Deep Space takes place in their Sound Room on Sunday evenings. Hope you can join us!” – DJ François K.

Start time: 7pm

tygapaw

Tygapaw brings her self-described “sultry club” stylings to the Sound Room as she celebrates her birthday with a few special guest DJs. She describes her standout 2019 EP “Handle With Care”, self-released on her Fake Accent label, as “coming to terms with unsettling truths about the emotional abusive nature of her Jamaican upbringing and the normalization of domestic violence as it transfers generation to generation without being challenged”. Tygapaw is always pushing boundaries in her music and you can expect this night to be no different as she continues her residency at Public Records.

Free before midnight with RSVP. RSVP does not guarantee entry.

Start time: 10pm

sarah davachi + nadia khan

As an artist who is known to explore the psychoacoustics of intimate aural spaces through the harmonics of multiple instruments, Public Records is proud to present an inimitable performance by Sarah Davachi in the Sound Room . With albums on labels such as Student of Decay, Recital, Ba Da Bing!, and most recently W. 25th for her 2019 release “Pale Bloom”, expect to be overtaken by Davachi’s passion for droney sonic explorations. Opening the room will be Scissor & Thread artist Nadia Khan, whose own take on ambient feels plucked out of a cosmic tree.

Start time: 7pm

kingdoms: sophia saze [live] + anthony linell + francis harris

We present a special fifth edition of Francis Harris’s Kingdoms series as we celebrate the debut NYC live performance of Sophia Saze. Her two part debut album “Self” released on Kingdoms this year tells the story of “the many different places [Saze has] lived during her journey” as the daughter of political refugees, incorporating samples of sounds from her childhood into an extremely intimate record. She will be joined by minimalist techno craftsman Anthony Linell and Kingdoms owner + Public Records partner Francis Harris for a night to remember.

Start: 11pm

charotte dos santos + melanie charles

Co-presented by AdHoc

Whilst Dos Santos spent her life in four different countries over three years, her debut project ‘Cleo’ EP took shape ending up functioning as a diary for the Brazilian-Norwegian composer, producer and vocalist. The metamorphosis of womanhood, falling in and out of love, betrayal, self realization and the passion for uplifting female musicians of color are all ideologies behind the restless musician’s 10 track EP.

She’s received recognition from Outkast’s Big Boi, Gilles Peterson, Pitchfork and Bandcamp. NyMag and The Cut, and was a nominee of the Norwegian Grammy Awards “Spellemannsprisen” in 2018.

Based between London and Oslo, Dos Santos is releasing her debut LP in 2020.

Start time: 7pm
