Brooklyn’s finest, NICKODEMUS, is back in Los Angeles this week for AFRO FUNKÉ’s Springtime Celebration! He recently announced that his new full length album A Long Engagement hits music outlets on May 4th, so we’re thrilled that we’ll be among the first to hear him drop a few of its gems! Pre-order a copy now via Wonderwheel Recordings Bandcamp Page.
Of course, if you’re in LA this week, don’t miss NICKODEMUS alongside JEREMY SOLE and yours truly at AFRO FUNKÉ, going down at the TOWNHOUSE & DEL MONTE SPEAKEASY in Venice. Afro Funké 2018 Spring Celebration facebook event page

ANNOUNCEMENT!!! We’re already bouncing with excitement as we prepare for La Junta’s sixth summer season! We’ll be back up on the rooftop on these upcoming Sundays beginning on Sunday April 29th!!! Please save the dates and make plans to dance with us under the sun and moon all summer long! Stay tuned on social media and on our refreshed website (lajuntala.com) as we’ll be announcing the lineup for the 2018 Kickoff Party in the coming days.
See you in the sunshine!
Thursday March 29 marks AFRO FUNKÉ’s first event of 2018, certain to be a colossal one as Brooklyn’s NICKODEMUS–Wonderwheel Recordings chief and creator of the legendary NYC to worldwide ‘Turntables on the Hudson’ events–makes his return to our deejay booth!! Longtime fans of Afro Funké will remember that Nickodemus was part of two of the most memorable nights on our dance floor at the old Zanzibar venue, especially as headliner of 2011’s 8-Year Anniversary celebration. His fluency in a broad spectrum of genres and his rhythmic, uptempo repertoire of beats and melodies from all over the world have made him one of the most sought-after and well traveled deejays since the 90s. I’m completely honored to serve as the opening deejay for both Nickodemus and my longtime AF partner in sublime, JEREMY SOLE on what will be an incredible night of music, dance and togetherness.
The main deets are on the flier above (which I happily collaborated on with J.Sole–or perhaps I should say–that he completely rocked up a few levels!), but here is the complete lineup of performers on both floors:
JEREMY SOLE, turntables
GLENN RED, turntables
DJ JAHNEKO, turntables–upstairs lounge
DJ ELIXIR, turntables–upstairs lounge
KAHLIL CUMMINGS, live percussion
JAHANNA BLUNT, featured dancer
DAUNTE FYALL, featured dancer
NATIVE SOL, featured vendor
ROCKY DAWUNI, host
CARY SULLIVAN, producer
Make plans to be there, lace up your boogie shoes, and as always…wear attire to perspire!
9PM – 2AM
