The Inspiration Series with François K

This Inspirations feature is put together by one of the most influential and iconic names in the world of Electronic Music in François K.

One of the pioneers of House music as a DJ, a producer and a remixer there is not a dance floor across the globe worth talking about that this man has not graced, nor an artist with which he has not worked with… So it was high fives all round the office when he agreed to do an Inspirations selection and he did not disappoint, choosing to give us an insight into some Soulful classics that inspire him to do what he does.

From Motown to Michael Jackson to Gregory Isaacs it is a wonderful selection of incredible music from a genre that is often overlooked in its purest form by electronic music fans and we are confident if you love your House music you are going to LOVE this selection.

Michael Jackson - Break Of Dawn
One of Michael's more recent and lesser-known works, it combines a top-shelf production and backing vocals dripping with sensuality to make this a truly irresistible love song.

Ashford & Simpson - Bourgie, Bourgie
Timeless instrumental beauty, gorgeous romantic strings inviting you to dance make this a winner from award-winning songwriting and performing duo Ashford&Simpson.

Gregory Isaacs - Cool Down The Pace (10" Mix)
Keeping it mellow and sensuous, it it'll be hard to forget this sweet and catchy melody after you've heard it once. Builds as a smooth instrumental in the first half, then switches to the patented lovers vocal by the man nicknamed 'Cool Ruler' by his adoring fans, so get the 10" version.

Sebastien Tellier - La Ritournelle
Weaves magic on any dance floor I've played it for, the subtle and endearing mood grabs you and doesn't let go. That piano theme is pure magic, and the strings only add to it.

Brothers Johnson - Tomorrow
Top-shelf Quincy Jones production, and a killer but delicate melody make this an absolute scorcher for any intimate moments.

The System - Don't Disturb This Groove
Magical songwriting, inspired vocal performance and powerful electronic production make for a truly winning combo, full of lushness and emotion guaranteed to stick with you long after the song has stopped.

Lionel Richie - Love Will Find A Way
Slick, ultra-clean and polished production with a remarkably effective vocal performance. Often overlooked, it's aged rather well and still has that satin sound lovers never get tired of.

Merci Monseiur for this truly wonderful selection!
