Big party this Friday!
Come join us for the second round of our new monthly party where we celebrate the distinct regional cultures of hip hop! Each month we will be featuring different guest DJs who will be selecting a different city or region and exploring the artists and music that have made that city's hip hop unique: from The A to Da Bay, Houstatlantavegas, NYC, The Chi, East Coast, West Coast, you get the picture.
February we honored the birthplace of hip hop, New York and it WENT OFF! This month we bring it home with a night of ALL Bay Area hip hop brought to you by two of The Bay's finest DJs.
First, the internationally renowned DJ Platurn -- voted "Oakland's Best DJ" by The East Bay Express and winner of Scion's mix competition with fellow Oakland Fader DJ Spair. Dj Platurn has been holding it down in The Bay for years with residencies at Luka's Tap Room's "Flashback Fridays" and "The 45 Sessions" at The Layover.
