There are some parties where the lineup of DJ's is so incredibly thorough that all you can do is marvel in awe at the talent assemble and make up your mind to attend so that you can say that you can say, "Yo I was there!!". One such party will be this Thursday, August 29th starting at 10pm (but it won't get cracking till midnight) at Santos Party House labeled "The Originals".
The DJ's will all be legendary with name such as D-Nice of Boogie Down Productions fame; Stretch Armstrong from his legendary hip hop show Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Show; Tony Touch who has several giant compilation albums to his name, Rich Medina who is not just a local legend I've heard about legendary parties he's thrown in Brazil (!!!!) and Clark Kent a well known Hip Hop Producer and they are all rocking the turntables.
The cover is free for women until midnight and $10 after midnight. For men its $15 until midnight and $20 afterward midnight.
Let's make this short and sweet. These celebrity dj's who aren't real purveyors of the DJ craft, you can keep them personally. Give me guys who became legends due to the music they created or sound they're known for creating at parties like these guys are. Tony Touch was a great break dancer and DJ. This is one of those must do events if you really like Hip Hop and Soul/R&B/ Funk. These guys really take you into the classics, new stuff, rare stuff, bridge sounds you didn't think could go together, you name it.
Santos Party House is located in Tribeca on 96 Lafayette St just below Canal St. You can take the N,Q,R, J,M, Z and 6 train to Canal St.
