"The Official GIANT STEP SummerStage After Party"
@ The Old American Can Factory
On Saturday, July 18, Carmina Soul returns outdoors in the courtyard @ The Old American Can Factory, for part 4 of this 7 part series. This will be Afrokinetic's premier outdoor event of Summer 2009 and "The Official GIANT STEP SummerStage After Party."
Residents DJ Chris Annibell and percussionist Amon, along with legendary music and lifestyle marketing agency Giant Step, welcome NZ-Japanese musician/producer Mark De Clive-Lowe to the stage. Known around the world as a devastating live performer, De Clive-Lowe creates in real-time, studio productions and remixes on stage from scratch, using drum machines, keyboards and effects. Accompanied by surprise singers and musicians, his show is nothing less than inspirational. As well as performances at clubs, festivals and parties worldwide, he’s recorded on over 200 releases for Masters At Work, Verve and Impulse Records; collaborating with as diverse a range of artists as Jody Watley, Omar, Bugz in the Attic, Dego (4Hero), percussionist Sammy Figueroa (Miles Davis), bass player Pino Palladino (D’Angelo/John Mayer), DJ Spinna, Leon Ware, Dame Shirley Bassey and the list goes on. MdCL is one of the most innovative producers and live performers you'll find anywhere.
Rounding out the bill is Brooklyn's own DJ OP!. Known in NYC and around the globe as a purveyor of all things soulful, this talented DJ and tastemaker can hang on just about any dance floor; from hip hop, house, classics to future soul, OP! can finesse them all, adopting musical diversity and focusing it into a beautifully cohesive vibe. Through his work with Cornerstone Promotions, Suite903.com and RawFusion NYC, OP! has helped shine a light on underground, global soul and continues to push for its relevance on the world stage.
Together, they will infuse Brooklyn's dance community with West London Broken Beats, Latin Grooves, Global House, Philly Soul, Jazz and African Polyrhythms; a night geared towards honoring the cultural landscape of Gowanus, Brooklyn and to transcend the confines of traditional clubs.
Help us celebrate the return of sun filled days and honey moon nights at our first ever Sunset Soiree. Doors open at 9pm.
