Yo! This event is going to be madness! Our two camps haven’t done an event together since the summer of 2016 when Grand Park brought us in to rock the entire 4th of July Block Party on the main stage for all of Los Angeles. If you were there, you’ll remember what an incredible crowd we had, shaking their bodies all afternoon into the evening, line dancing, zumba dancing and even propelling themselves into the air cheerleader style!!
Save the date! THURSDAY MAY 31st 🙂
P.S. On the flier above, as on the turntables on Afro Funké, it’s a Glenn Red x Jeremy Sole collabo.
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!
