My monthly music excursion known as LATITUDE returns this Friday night April 20th to General Lee’s Cocktail House in Chinatown Los Angeles! Alongside the jazz, rare groove, hip hop and groove heavy pan-African tunes that I’ve been mixing, this 420 edition will find me leaning into some extra reggae and dub tunes for the occasion. So roll (in however many ways that means to you)!
10pm – 2am | FREE

Heyyyy! It’s a PIÑA week!! Big thanks to everyone who came through last month for YUKICITO’s amazing birthday celebration. We’re back at EL DORATO DTLA this coming Friday April 13th, laying down the voodoo extra heavy on the dance floor for the occasion. Come on down under the ground and let’s see if we can make some magic once again!
Huge thanks to all who were part of last Thursday’s AFRO FUNKÉ 2018 Springtime Celebration, performers and eventgoers alike! What a beautiful night!! Special thanks to the homie Eric Parsons aka DJ Elixir who came down from Ojai to deejay the upstairs Townhouse lounge in Venice CA, not just because he put down a solid set behind the turntables and mixer, but he’s also a top notch photographer who shot the great pix in the gallery below. Check out a few of the random photos he took downstairs and outside while he wasn’t droppin’ the jams upstairs. Unfortunately, he had to miss most of Nickodemus’ set since they were slotted to play the same hours, but Nico managed to slip into one pic during the end-of-night sidewalk talk 🙂 Enjoy, and stay tuned for the announcement of the next Afro Funké getdown!
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
