NYC: Giant Step presents Onra (DJ Set) at Le Bain – 5/20

Spring is finally back, and so are our legendary monthly Monday parties at Le Bain. We are excited to be kicking off the season with a very special appearance by Parisian beatmaker and globetrotter producer Onra aka Arnaud Bernard. Come party from 8pm and enjoy Le Bain’s breathtaking rooftop.

Onra’s electrifying live MPC performances around the world – everywhere from the Red Bull Music Academy in Bucharest and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival to LA’s down-and-dirty bass sanctuary the Low End Theory – add new dimensions to the cosmic grooves he puts on tape. So, get ready to dance on a high-energy soul, hip hop, electronic, jazz, RnB, dub, and world set!

Free with RSVP

Le Bain at The Standard, 444 W. 13th St.

Video: Montreal’s A K U A Premieres “Gravity”

 

If you love the ethereal, downtempo sounds of Rhye or the soul meets electronic combo of Jessie Ware, then you must check out Montreal based artist A K U A (pronounced a-koo-ah). Today, she premieres the beautiful video for “Gravity” directed by Kofi Carson and set in the Florida Keys. That’s her as the mermaid. An impressive debut, and we look forward to hearing more when she drops her EP, One’s Company, on June 4th.
