Giant Step Presents Hudson 9 with Vikter Duplaix

hudsonflyer9b

Giant Step’s biweekly series at Hudson Hotel presents Vikter Duplaix, the heavyweight DJ who closed out our final Hudson of 2008.

Vikter Duplaix, a Philadelphia native, honed his DJ skills with Philly legends Jazzy Jeff and King Britt. His introduction to the global music scene came in 2000 with his installment of K7!’s DJ Kicks series, which showcased his vocal stylings and musical taste. In 2002, Vikter released his first full-length artist project titled “International Affairs” on Hollywood Records. Vikter formed a joint venture with BBE Records, which led to the “Stimulation” EP and 2006′s full-length “Bold and Beautiful” with appearances and collaborative production work by James Poyser, Esthero, Tye Tribbett & GA , Rapheal Saadiq, Karsh Kale, Suphala and house music pioneer Louie Vega. His production work continues to defy genre as he creates soundscapes for artists as diverse as Earth, Wind and Fire, Jazzanova, Nitin Sawhney, King Britt, N’Dea Davevenport (Brand New Heavies), Ladybug Mecca (Digable Planets) and Spacek.
