On Friday June 25th, Giant Step presents a very special Nikki & Rich showcase at Harlot as they make their San Francisco debut. If you don't know who this duo is yet, this is your chance to find out live and in person. Specialty cocktails will be provided by SVEDKA Vodka, and San Francisco's own DJs Phleck and Gordo Cabeza will be on the 1 and 2s so come early and bring a friend.
M.I.A.'s "XXXO" has been remixed with a feature from none other than Jay-Z! Check out the Ben Allen version below, and stream more versions by Fulton Yard here. Stay posted for the hotly-anticipated album /\/\/\Y/\, coming soon.
"XXXO" feat. Jay-Z (Main Mix):
Check out Gil Scott-Heron's video for the title track to his album, I'm New Here. It's a deliberately simple take on a sparse acoustic song, capturing him live in the studio with subtle background projections of his Harlem neighborhood. Heron's first album in more than a decade, I'm New Here is out now through XL Recordings.
