On Friday, April 29th, Giant Step presents Dirty Vegas Soundsystem in a very rare Brooklyn appearance at Public Assembly. This unique set up will feature Dirty Vegas in a full DJ set with live electronic percussion. After the group parted ways in 2005 to pursue solo careers, we were all ecstatic to hear news of their regrouping and to get a peek at the new album with a fresh sound ready to captivate the international dance scene once again. This party will bring the trio back to their roots with an exclusive soundsystem show as they continue to celebrate the release of their new album Electric Love. Reduced advance tickets are available now.

On Saturday, March 12th, Giant Step heads south to the sunny beaches of Miami, FL for an exclusive Winter Music Conference DJ set at The Florida Room at Delano by Questlove with MC Yameen Allworld. We knew this party would be hot from the jump, but we didn't know quite how hot it would be until we checked our lists this morning and realized - WE ARE SOLD OUT! yes folks, the RSVP list is now closed.
For those of you who did not RSVP yet, don't fret - 2 lucky winners still have a chance to get a spot on the list. Just answer this very easy question and enter for your chance to win. For those of you who already RSVPed...well done. Please arrive early as space is very limited and admittance is granted on a 'first come first served' basis.
