WHERE: Santos Party House, NYC
WHEN: September 3, 2011
I don't even know how to begin this entry aside from saying that this was most definitely one of my most validating nights as a DJ in 2011. Fela, James Brown, DJ Spinna, and I held court in Santos for 5+ hours worth of uncompromisingly black funk and Afrobeat music from two of the zen masters of the game. A swift kick in the nuts to anyone who believes that you gotta play current radio hits to control a room of more that 750 people in Manhattan. What The Funk!? 2011 was phenomenal, and well worth flying home from Miami to be a part of, before flying back to Orlando the next morning.
