Francois K goes back to his disco roots on Monday 19th as his weekly party Deep Space welcomes cult New York DJ Timmy Richardson (aka TOT) on January 19th. Inspired by the likes of Ted Currier, Tee Scott and Frankie Crocker on WBLS in the late-‘70s Richardson, like his mentors, is from the old school of spinning: “I play more classics than anything else, so I guess you could say I’m a classics DJ first. My style emphasizes trying to flow records into one another to make one long song. I try to program the music so that we have the true classics along with recurrent songs and then mix in some new songs. A lot of people have a style of playing all new music all night. But in my opinion this is hurting house music because at the end of the night you can barely remember any of these new records, because you didn’t have the familiar records to break it up. I like to play with a lot of energy.” Larry Levan would be proud!
