California was awesome! In addition to San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, I managed to snag another gig the night before heading back to NYC in Oakland! So many dancefloors! I hope you managed to check my Instagram feed for many shots of my trip- the sights, the food, and of course, the sounds . The photo above is one of me rockin Motown on Mondays in LA .
Many thanks to Beatnick, Mamabear, Adriana, Monalisa, Phatrick, Jedi, my Makossa fam Wonway, Soul Profess and everyone else who helped make the trip so awesome. I promise not to be a stranger, California!
As far as the past few months go, I’ve been involved with some pretty amazing events. In addition to holding it down at my favorite hideaway, Alice’s Arbor, I had the opportunity to represent at TheVS, which is becoming one of the most anticipated parties at Santos Play House! Every month 2 DJs represent different genres or musicians/label crews in a friendly spar. Who wins? The crowd!
In October, I held it down for 90s Hip Hop while Strictly Business Sound System represented for 90s Dancehall and it was GREAT! I held my own considering I was up against a crew! Check the video recap!
This past Halloween, I got to spin the return of one of my favorite movie nights, Shouting at the Screen! Comedian Wyatt Cenac and your rapper’s favorite MC Donwill have finally returned their night of drinks and blaxploitation films and brought it to a new home in Williamsburg- IndieScreen!
Shouting at the Screen will be every First Thursday of the month so check us out December 5th!
In addition to Shouting at the Screen, my next gigs include Juke Bar this Saturday night (11/30), Motown on Mondays 12/2 at Brooklyn Bowl with Amir of 180 Proof Records, and Friday, December 6th at Alice’s Arbor.
Happy Thanksgiving and I’ll see you on the dancefloor!
