NYC: Giant Step Presents DJ Spinna at Le Bain
Le Bain @ The Standard
444 West 13th St
Free w/ RSVP
Giant Step’s monthly night at Le Bain returns to the 18th floor of the Standard Hotel. Our first three parties at Le Bain saw legendary DJs Dennis Ferrer, Danny Krivit, and Rich Medina play some amazing sets. This time, get ready for a special night with world-class DJ Spinna. He has spun for numerous Giant Step parties over the years and for this one, he will put his own indelible mark by flooding the dancefloor with soulful and deep house music.
Vincent “DJ Spinna” Williams is something of an anomaly in music, a cornerstone of Hip-Hop’s Golden era who became a go-to producer and key remixer for numerous high profile artists. A humbling example of what it takes to truly succeed within the framework of multiple fields. A steadfast work ethic, an obsessively extensive vinyl library and the willingness to pursue the full extents of his roots (Funk, Soul and Jazz), foundation (Hip-Hop) and future (Electronic/Dance music) with no restraints. 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.
