This is the opening party for Rhythm, a new night which will take you on an exploration into the sounds of the African diaspora.
We are pleased to welcome Grammy-nominated vocalist/producer/writer and DJ Vikter Duplaix to start us on this musical journey. A Philadelphia native, Vikter began his career early studying music and singing in touring choirs with legendary artists such as Teddy Pendergrass and Luciano Pavarotti. His DJ skills were honed with Philly legends Jazzy Jeff and King Britt.
His production work continues to defy genre as he creates soundscapes for artists as diverse as Earth, Wind and Fire, Jazzanova, Raphael Saddiq, Eric Benet, 4Hero, Faith Evans, Roni Size, Norman Brown, Nitin Sawhney, King Britt, N'dea Davevenport (Brand New Heavies), Ladybug Mecca (Digable Planets), Spacek, and house music pioneer Louie Vega. He is even reworking Radiohead's "Tree Fingers" from their massively acclaimed LP "Amnesiac" for the BBE Records tribute to the London-based phenoms. Vikter Duplaix is a musical alchemist weaving beautiful people, fine arts and progressive music into a purely golden lifestyle.
Also gracing the decks we have Cecil. If you haven't made it out to The People in Oakland, this is a great opportunity to see one of the Bay's finest!
