SZA this past weekend premiered "Child's Play" at the Fader Fort in NYC. Looks like we have another woozy soultronic gem on our hands!
This week, the party continues with another edition of #Offline with Q-Tip. Joining him on the decks is DJ Rockin Rob, DJ Kamala and Natasha Diggs. Last week, was another great edition of #Offline with Q-Tip and Natasha Diggs. Also, while the weather is still nice we will have the roof open too.
This party isn't your average shindig, either. Q-Tip shares, "The concept of Offline is a party that brings all elements of New York club culture together with great music, diverse people and no bottle service.”
Giant Step President/CEO Maurice Bernstein adds, “This is the first weekly we have done since the original Giant Step parties over a decade ago, and only Q-Tip could have persuaded me to do it. I'm really excited to see it grow and flourish.”
Pretty epic, if we say so ourselves!

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, Giant Step President/CEO Maurice Bernstein shares with us about our May 1991 show with the Ohio Players. We did five shows with the guys - were you at one of them? Tell us what you remember!
Growing up in England, I had a fascination with the Ohio Players for a couple of reasons: the song “Love Rollercoaster” was a favorite when I was a kid, and as I got a little older, I also became intrigued by their album covers – they were risqué to say the least. [laughs]
When we started doing the Groove Academy shows, the Ohio Players were obviously on the top of our list to bring out to New York. The group no longer had all the original members, but it still had Diamond on drums and Sugarfoot Bonner on guitar.
Sugarfoot was definitely a precursor to Prince and Larry Blackmon. They both pretty much stole from Sugarfoot – he was a huge influence for them.
