Our good friend Marques Wyatt is celebrating his birthday this Sunday in LA. DEEP, hands down the best party in LA, if not the States, is also celebrating an anniversary with 12 years of dance music. The line-up for their party looks like a typical Giant Step DJ event – Rich Medina, DJ Spinna, Osunlade, Joe Claussell and of course Marques Wyatt. So if you’re on the west coast this President’s Day weekend, don’t miss this event Sunday night! “Special Hours” means this party goes til 4am, which for LA, is crazytime.

All Hail Badu: Live at El Rey Theater

We were very lucky to have Erykah Badu celebrating the release of New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh in LA and NY this past week. Giant Step co-founder Jonathan Rudnick was on hand to experience Erykah’s record release show in LA. Here’s what he thought:

“Naked or (preferably not !) when Badu rolls into town you know you’re in for something extra special and that’s exactly what we all got at LA’s El Rey Tuesday night at the album release party event. Badu’s on fire and for all the right reasons, and don’t get me wrong the all abuzz vid for instant classic “Window Seat” is a must see, but clearly her Badu-ness live is the way ! A 2 hour journey with full 11 piece live band and Badu with her own ‘toys’ tearing through the hits, plus treats like Sun Ra’s ‘Nuclear War’, and tunes from ‘right side of the brain’ steeped New Amerykah Part Two and it felt like a right on baptism!

A Part Two Badu, soul searching and in love, yet still clearly socially active and defiant, came across as part cheeky little girl, feisty teenager, empowering Queen rolled into one mesmerizing 21st century Goddess – All hail Badu – now get some clothes on girl !”

Nneka Gives a Firey Debut Taking LA By Storm

The much anticipated Los Angeles debut of Singer/Songwriter Nneka last Wednesday Nov. 18 at the SkyBar as part of the Svedka Vodka Sessions series, was everything hoped for and then some. The Sultry vocals of the Nigerian born singer was only enhanced by the strong message she communicated to the dazzled crowds. Helping warm up the crowd on that windy night was the masterful spinning of LA’s own DJ Vikter Duplaix.

It was a high profile night covered by many, including Blogger Yaz Jenkins. For more photos and info you can check out her blog Pop!A-Razzi
