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.
Check out this clip of Chico Mann making their Miami debut at our 14th annual Sunset Soiree, co-presented by Levi's in association with Windows 7, in March during the Winter Music Conference. They are performing "Ya Yo Sé" from their latest album Analog Drift: Muy...Esniqui soon to be released on Wax Poetics.
In case you were not able to flock south to Miami in March for the annual Winter Music Conference (where precious little conferencing actually happens), there was a great deal of amazing music showcased non-stop throughout the week. Watch some highlights from Giant Step’s 14th Annual Sunset Soiree, co-presented by Levi's and Windows 7, featuring Estelle, Rye Rye, Questlove, Gilles Peterson and many more.

On March 27th, we had the historical double bill of Questlove and Gilles Peterson to finish off our Sunset Soiree in The Florida Room at WMC. After Gilles' 3-hour set, Questlove took over. And before Questlove started his own momentous DJ set, he took the mic: here's what he had to say.
Stay tuned for pics and video of all three days...
