Can you say smooth? France's Francois K serves up silky, supple, and deep house rhythms that will raise your body temperature while keeping you laid back and cool. Deep and Sexy is a 12-track mix of fantasy and intrigue, courtesy of the sly yet always funky K, featuring a mixture of jazzy house, groovy soul, luscious tribal beats, plush Afro-Cuban arrangements, and Latin rhythms. All the tracks, including the infectious club hit, "Earth Is the Place," are from his New York-based label, Wave Music. The 47-year-old is a longtime veteran of the NYC club scene. He got his start DJing around New York in the late '70s and early '80s at such seminal clubs as Studio 54, the Loft, and Paradise Garage, filling in for garage and house legend Larry Levan. By the mid-'80s, K was a popular remixer and producer, working with such acts as U2, Kraftwerk, the Cure, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Eurythmics, and Diana Ross. Obviously, this guy has been around long enough to understand the art of the groove. K blends just the right amount of gooey disco with tingly funk and bumping R&B to create a pleasurable vibe that culminates in a state of pelvis-pumping hedonistic fervor. No point in keeping your hands to yourself while listening to this upbeat release. Keep the Viagra handy.
