There was serious SPIRIT in the room last night!!! Endless thanks to our guest deejay AL JACKSON for the deep and solid set of uptempo bangers that kept the room pumped! My man JEREMY SOLE also brought his A-game, layering disparate rhythms and vocals in his trademark ‘musaics’ collage style that has made huge fans out of so many of us deejays and clubgoers alike. Mad love to our man FUZZBEE MORSE for dropping by and dropping some funky flute riffin’ in the 1am hour, as well as to the two African percussionists who came up and jammed with the deejays.
Next week, stayed tuned for another night of uptempo madness as DJ MANDO FEVER puts it down four on the floor style!
