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.
