Last night, Giant Step’s weekly party with DJ Spinna at Santos, Journey, was more than just a fantastic party with special guest DJs Rich Medina, Eli Escobar, Cosmo, Scratch and Amir on the decks. It was a benefit for the great NY DJ and record digger, Kon, whose health has recently been bombarded with blood clots, on top of myriad more serious maladies requiring surgery.
A big thank you to everyone who came through to help Kon out. Together, we raised $3,500 for him. If you would like to make a separate donation, please paypal money to DJMSTHANG@GMAIL.COM.
From all of us at Giant Step: keep fighting Kon!
Finally, here are a few of Kon’s mixes for you to enjoy:

On Saturday, August 29th – what would have been Michael Jackson’s 51st birthday – fans of the King of Pop gathered at New York City’s NOKIA Theatre Times Square for Q-Tip Presents: “Long Live the King! A Birthday Celebration for Michael Jackson.”
The crowd danced the night away to never-before-heard remixes of Michael Jackson’s hits, as well as rare video footage from the Motown and Sony vaults. Joining Q-Tip onstage to DJ were special guests DJ Spinna and Mark Ronson. At one point, Quincy Jones called in to say a few words to the audience.
