Turntables on the Hudson and Giant Step are teaming up again, to ring in the spirit of Spring. This Friday, April 30th at Littlefield, we present a night of dancing reminiscent of all the good times by the waterfront, but this time on the Gowanus. DJs Nickodemus and Erik The Red will be spinning the hottest music from around the globe with Nappy G and Amon on percussion bringing the dancing to a feverish frenzy. Head to Ticketfly and be sure to pick up a copy of the Turntables On The Hudson – 10 Year Anniversary double CD or Nickodemus’s Sun People Remixed album with your advance ticket.
Giant Step returns to Littlefield on Friday, April 30 with our good friends Turntables On The Hudson. Expect a wide-range of funk sounds, from house and Latin to Afrobeat and reggae, with Nickodemus behind the decks and live percussion by Nappy G & Amon. Save some cash and get your tickets in advance, with your choice of Turntables On The Hudson – 10 Year Anniversary 2xCD or Nickodemus’ Sun People Remixed CD.
The holiday season is meant to be filled with joyous rapture, and Monday night at Hudson with Turntables on the Hudson & Melting Pot Global was exemplary of this. The celebration continues with Danny Krivit taking over on Monday, December 28th for the final Hudson party of 2009!
The Spy From Cairo is secretly Moreno Visini, the artist formerly known as Zeb, who’s reimerged with a new album, Secretly Famous. An effort by The Spy From Cairo to consolidate as much Middle Eastern music as possible, every track focuses on a particular style of music from the Arab countries – all with his signature Afro, Dub and electronic stylings – from the fierce sounds of the Mizmar and Nay in “Nayphony” (which is an adaptation of traditional Jordanian music) to “Ana Arabi,” a song about being an Arab (not a terrorist) with beautifully sung lyrics by Ghalia Benali.
