NYC: King Britt @ Le Bain – October 15

 

Joining the stable of legendary DJs that have already graced our Monday nights at Le Bain (Questlove, Dennis Ferrer, Danny Krivit, Rich Medina, DJ Spinna, Louie Vega and Bobbito Garcia), the incomparable King Britt will be laying down some serious danceable delights for us in about a week and a half!

The multitalented globetrotting DJ known for getting any party live is also a composer and a producer. Britt has remixed and produced an array of artists as well as scored commercials for Rolex and L’oreal Paris.

It should go without saying, but have no doubt – this night will not disappoint.
