I'm soo darn excited about DJ Spinna playing @ the Hudson Hotel!!!!

*DJ Spinna rocked the hot MJ remixes @ this summer's HUGE "Spike Lee celebrates Micheal Jackson" party in Prospect Park!

*His weekly Santo Funhouse parties in Soho (spinnin' old school hip hop -Wu Tang, Nas, Mos Def, Talib Kweli) along w/ soul classics "re-mixed")

*His annual world famous Stevie Wonder "remix" parties(now in Atlanta and LA)

*His annual 4th of July parties @ his backyard in Fort Greene....I'll just stop right there. :-)

Umm yeah...I'm a big fan!:) I can definitely co-sign on this event! And... if you never experience dancin' up a storm inside The Hudson Hotel's midtown luxurious "white room" w/ the [i]glowing dance floors (think MJ's "Billy Jean's" video) You're truly missing something special!

I advise you to rsvp fast - It will be sold out!

A cornerstone of Hip-Hop's late 90's indie-uprise, DJ Spinna made much of his first impression on listeners as the musical background of his group The Jigmastas (having released an impressive slew of 12" singles on his then self-run label Beyond Real during this time) as well as providing the canvas for an array of that era’s lyrical giants. As an emcee in New York City, if you didn’t have a Spinna production under your belt, well, you just hadn’t accomplished all there was to accomplish. Everyone from Mos Def, Talib Kweli to Pharaohe Monch boasted Spinna beats to prove their worth to the scene. At the height of indie-kingpin Rawkus Records heyday, Spinna was in demand, also churning out timeless classics of the era from the likes of J-Live, Mr. Complex and The Polyrhythm Addicts (his all-too-brief collabo-group with Apani B., Shaabam Sadeeq and Complex).

As New York City's premier Monday night event for the last two years, the Hudson has consistently seen a curated roster of DJ legends and pioneering artists as wide-ranging as Louie Vega, Afrika Bambaataa, Jazzanova, Bobbito and Danny Krivit, playing styles from soulful house, Latin, hip hop, jazz, funk and more. Mark your calendars for quality music and dancing at Hudson.
