Giant Step Presents DJ Spinna and Electric Wire Hustle at Le Bain 8/19
Monday, August 19
Le Bain at The Standard, New York NY
After hosting an astounding set of DJs from Onra to FaltyDL, and Rich Medina, Giant Step's monthly Monday night at Le Bain returns to the 18th floor of the Standard Hotel with the world-class DJ Spinna and a very special DJ set by Electric Wire Hustle.
Vincent "DJ Spinna" Williams is something of an anomaly in music, a cornerstone of Hip-Hop's Golden era who became a go-to producer and key remixer for numerous high profile artists. A humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. A steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursue the full extents of his roots (Funk, Soul and Jazz), foundation (Hip-Hop) and future (Electronic/Dance music) with no restraints. DJ Spinna made much of his first impression on listeners as the musical background of his group The Jigmastas (having released an impressive slew of 12" singles on his then self-run label Beyond Real during this time) as well as providing the canvas for an array of that era's lyrical giants. As an emcee in New York City, if you didn't have a Spinna production under your belt, well, you just hadn't accomplished all there was to accomplish. Everyone from Mos Def, Talib Kweli to Pharaohe Monch boasted Spinna beats to prove their worth to the scene.
