It's been too long since Gilles Peterson's last trip to NYC's clubland (January 2010 to be exact), so we're pretty damn excited to pause last week's show and head out to Cielo, tonight, to catch his rare New York set. Forgot to buy tickets in advance? No worries, we set some aside for purchase at the door, tonight, starting at 10 p.m.
Giant Step is proud to present Gilles Peterson in his first NYC appearance in 18 months. Advance tickets are still available to catch the world renowned DJ on the FUNKTION-ONE soundsystem at Cielo, in NYC.

We at Giant Step are so excited about this release. Red Hot + Rio 2 is a musical compilation aimed at raising money for HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Succeeding the original Bossa Nova inspired 1996 tribute, Red Hot + Rio, this release pays homage to the late 60’s Brazilian Tropicália movement and sheds "new light on the songs of this influential, politically charged era, which changed the culture of the country forever."
Featuring over 33 original collaborations between legendary Brazilian musicians and other international talents, Red Hot + Rio 2 will leave you overwhelmingly content with its audible treats; this roster showcases many beloved musicians, including Madlib, Bebel Gilberto, Quadron, José Gonzalez, Alice Smith, Beck, Seu Jorge, and John Legend, amongst countless others.
