Deep Space is honored to celebrate its 11th anniversary of Mondays at Cielo with Hotflush mastermind SCUBA and resident DJ Francois K.
In a rare and intimate night, SCUBA and Francois will explore the depths of their music minds and give us their perspectives of the "Deep Space" set in this night of live mixed sets.
Even though he no longer lives in the country, it's hard to imagine what London's musical landscape would look like without the influence of Paul Rose aka Scuba. The Hotflush label head, producer, DJ, and promoter cut his teeth with jungle and techno equally in London, eventually becoming involved with garage and pirate radio and cementing a reputation as one of the city's leading musical innovators. Relocating to Berlin in 2007, he has since released three acclaimed albums and embarked on a long-standing relationship with the behemoth that is Berghain; its influences, his own and Hotflush's becoming ever more intertwined and symbiotic.

Deep Space, is an adventure into future dub, spacey vibes, and abstract grooves featuring resident DJ François K. live on the mixing board with special guests.
Since the party’s launch in 2003, Deep Space has featured a who’s who of well known and then emerging artists from around the world representing a stunning array of musical styles that Deep Space is known for integrating into its open minded aesthetic. While the mission of Deep Space remains committed to sharing a love of dub, a vast, under-appreciated musical direction, the party has invited a great range of guest artists to share their creative dub mixing approaches to all things spacey, psychedelic and mind-bending.
From dubstep pioneers such as Mala, Goth-Trad, and Digital Mystikz, to house, techno & disco icons such as Giorgio Moroder, Dimitri from Paris, Theo Parrish, Rhythm & Sound, Ron Trent, Carl Craig, Joe Claussell, Derrick May, to cutting edge producers and tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson, Mary Anne Hobbs, Mr. Scruff, DJ Spooky and dub legends such as Adrian Sherwood with Pinch, Mutabaruka and U-Roy, and Brazilian icons Otto with Carlinhos Brown and plenty of live musical and dance performers, Deep Space continues to be a magnet for attracting many of electronic dance music’s most innovative artists. Almost all of the guest artists who play at Deep Space create truly one-of-kind, crate-digging "Deep Space sets."
