GS_Offline_MLK_square

The first #Offline party of the year was a huge success! And when we say special guests come out, we meant it: last night the inimitable Erykah Badu DJ’ed back to back with Q-Tip until the club closed for the night. Yep. You can stop hitting yourself now.

Next week, we invite you out for a very special #Offline in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr.‘s legacy. Start the holiday weekend early with The Abstract as he spins an eclectic mix of funk and boogie, and be part of what people are calling “the best party in New York.”

Past guests have included Busta Rhymes, Dave Chappelle, Mark Ronson, and Nile Rodgers, to name a few, and you never know who’s going to show up next! Don’t miss out.

Event Recap: The Village Voice on The Annual MLK Tribute with Questlove & MC Yameen Allworld

Big thanks to Puja at The Village Voice for covering our Annual MLK event, DJed this year by Questlove and MC Yameen Allworld.

Party anthems and silly humor aside, at its best, the night made us remember exactly what we were celebrating. The most touching moment for us came at the onset of Aly-Us’ house anthem “Follow Me”: Basked in flecks of gold light from the disco balls above, the entire club sang along to a chorus of “Why don’t you follow me/To a place where we can be free,” prompting even those headed for the door to linger. “Can we stay through the end of this song?” we heard the girl next to us ask her friend. “I feel like we need to be here for this.”
