Mark and I haven’t presented JNF in Chi-town in quite some time. Ready to seriously bring it to their annual Felabration, and show Chicagoans what the longest standing Afrobeat party in North America is all about!

It seems like every time I play in Bed-Stuy, sparks fly and asses shake. I couldn’t resist starting a monthly when my man Alex proposed it to me. This is the first ever edition of our new Revival party. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s the North American debut of a dope, dope singer, Nai Palm, from the band Hiatus Kaiyote (Melbourne, Australia). You’ll be hearing a lot from her band in the years to come. Hear me now, believe me later.

The seventh annual L.A. Jump N Funk should be nothing less than spectacular, especially with how well AfroBeatles was received at MacArthur Park a few weeks ago. Salute Asad, Cognito and Ryan for their loyalty and effort on behalf of JNF.
