Just Blaze, Pete Rock, DJ Soul, DJ Gravy, Micro Don and Max Glazer (Federation Sound)
Guests Red Fox and Screechy Dan
Dubbed "Best DJ Night" at Paper Magazine's 4th Annual Nightlife Awards, reOPENed has earned the reputation for being the most important Friday night in the Five Boroughs for the masses to get down. From movie stars to breakdancers to workplace warriors of every collar, the crowd is a beautiful representation of New York City's soul, and the music is engineered accordingly. Upstairs is JUST BLAZE, the multi-platinum producer and remixer who has laid tracks for Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Beastie Boys, Mariah Carey, MF DOOM, Janet Jackson, Jay Electronica, Kanye West and many more. While his sets do feature plenty of classic hip-hop, less obviously he makes liberal use of house music, soul classics, electronic disco, and just about anything with a serious beat. DJ SOUL is at his side, stepping it up with some ecclectic selections adored by his crowd of music moguls and celebrites. Meanwhile, DJ Gravy, Max Glazer and Micro Don establish the Friday night headquarters of Caribbean grooves in our downstairs level, spinning dancehall, soca, as well as classic reggae and reggaetronica.
