In case you didn't know, Martin Luther King Jr. Day is one of our favorite holidays. We celebrated in true Giant Step style by donating some of our proceeds to Doctors Without Borders for their relief work in Haiti. DJ Spinna, and DJ Rich Medina were there to set the perfect groove. Thank you to all who came out and had a grand old time with us.
Underground photographer Jaecyne Howell has teamed up with NYC veterans Jay Locke (DanceTracks/ Lion1Music/ Soul People Music) and MKL (Lion1Music) to showcase a new, interactive work inspired by the life and work of artist Ernie Barnes (the artist of the painting featured on the television show, Good Times), on Monday, January 18th, at Littlefield. This installation will sport stunning visuals set to hypnotic sounds along with the debut of a new choreographic work by Desiree Godsell and Lia McPherson, entitled "Drum Major Instinct", set to the MLK, Jr. speech mix by DJ Marshallito. A one of a kind interactive performance where your inspiration as an audience member is the axis of the party, so come ready to see, hear and move.
To wrap up our final Hudson event of 2009 we asked our friend Danny Krivit to come through and work his magic. He kindly obliged us. The dancing was frenzied to say the least, and the crowd was as hot as ever. We hope you all had a phenomenal end of year and wish you plenty more dancing to come.
The holiday season is meant to be filled with joyous rapture, and Monday night at Hudson with Turntables on the Hudson & Melting Pot Global was exemplary of this. The celebration continues with Danny Krivit taking over on Monday, December 28th for the final Hudson party of 2009!
From the first second to the last downbeat, the band played nonstop. There were no pauses, there was no break. Raphael Saadiq was flying a fully packed time machine to the ’60s, and it was a smooth ride. If you missed it here are a few pictures that captured the feeling.
