Giant Step and Le Poisson Rouge are proud to present a very special night celebrating the 20th year anniversary of Mecca And The Soul Brother, the critically acclaimed Hip Hop Album by Classic New York Producer and Hip Hop legends Pete Rock and CL Smooth. Pete Rock has revolutionized rap production through groundbreaking studio wizardry. You don't want to miss this night where he will return with some of hip hop's best moments, spinning beats ranging from jazz into hip hop. Pete Rock will also be joined by DJ Meka (2DopeBoyz) and special guests.
Pete Rock made remixes matter more than the original songs. He established ad-libs as a standard recording asset. He introduced dramatic, forceful horns to rap's sonic discussion. Pete Rock has notched these achievements during his impeccable recording, producing and remixing career, one of the most distinguished in rap history and one that includes collaborations with Nas, Common, Mary J. Blige, Ghostface Killa, Busta Rhymes, Public Enemy and Run-DMC, among many others. Showing that he remains sharp as ever, the Mount Vernon, New York rapper-producer returns with NY's Finest, his best moment as an artist. "I called it that because I feel like that's me," Pete Rock explains. "I'm one of New York's finest producers."
