DESCRIPTION

Vice is Nice takes its first step in bringing a little bit of New York to Birmingham! Lending heavily from the infamous Studio 54 & Paradise Garage era, we will be transforming venues, opening minds and ensuring the hedonistic, carefree vibes of the early 1980’s are replicated right here in modern day Digbeth!

Who better to headline this celebration of all things New York House & Disco than a French of Armenian origin that started his career in New York City clubs Studio 54 & Paradise Garage and is widely regarded as one of the forefathers of modern day House Music. In 2005, following 3 decades at the forefront of the dance music industry, François Kevorkian was inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame.

He has won countless awards for Best Resident DJ for his exceptional sets & is revered as the co-creator of New York City’s legendary dance parties Body&SOUL and Deep Space. He has achieved notoriety for not only soulful house DJ sets, but also for his techno and dub mixes. Over the years he performed regularly at Studio 54, Paradise Garage, The Loft, Ministry of Sound, Sound Factory Bar, Twilo, Roxy and Club Yellow in Japan, to name a few. In 1992 he toured with the great Larry Levan before his death in the same year.

Additionally, 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.
