It’s back! That’s right folks, the Giant Step Hudson Series is back in action and we are doing it bigger and badder than ever. We have relocated to a bigger space, downstairs at the brand new Good Units at Hudson. We are doing this once a month now so you know it will be legendary in style. Kicking off the series this year is none other than our friend Danny Krivit, on Monday, September 27th. Doors open at 8pm and as always entrance is free but strictly RSVP only.

Listen to the New York legend talk about the art of the edit below. His latest release Edits By Mr. K Vol. 2 is out on Strut Records today, so make sure you snag yourself a copy.

This is a trailer for the soon-to-be-released movie, Souled Out (aka Soulboy), and it’s about UK’s Northern Soul scene and the famous Wigan Casino dance club. After the jump, check out a vintage video of the real thing: dancing at the Wigan Casino crica 1975.

We are very excited to welcome back our old friend Peter Kruder (Kruder & Dorfmeister, Voom:Voom, Peace Orchestra) for an exclusive DJ set on Saturday, March 20 at Littlefield in Brooklyn.
