This being our 15th year at Winter Music Conference, and our third with this man, we know that no one does it quite like Questlove. Giant Step is very excited to announce an exclusive one night appearance at WMC with DJ Questlove and MC Yameen Allworld on Saturday, March 12th, at The Florida Room at Delano in Miami. Entrance is free but strictly rsvp only and you must be 21+ w/ID.
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."
