Strictly Social w/ Havana, Russell Taylor, Michelle Shaprow - Wed July 21, 2010

Nu-Soul Magazine & Soul Union present


An evening of Eclectic Soul Fusion

Wednesday July 21, 2010

Strictly Social takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at
LA’s charming Little Temple, continuing the legacy of the renowned
Temple Bar, by featuring a carefully selected showcase of artists and
DJs that reflect the Nu-Soul sound. This monthly event always features
the hottest artists pushing the boundaries of soul and a vibe that is
truly unique.

Featuring Live Performances By:

HAVANA Entervention Promo Tour

Southern California’s soulful singer-songwriter Havana has a lot in
common with the flava-filled Caribbean island’s fresh liberation. On
her 2005 debut she worked with an assortment of talented producers such
as Nicolay, Symbolic One and Waajeed selling an impressive 18,000
units (physical & digital) to date. Her upcoming new album Entervention,
which features production by producers like Trackademicks, GB (Sound
in Color), Brook D’Leau (J*Davey) and Beat$treets, celebrates the
coming to grips of Havana’s hard upbringing with her life, using music
to express her experiences and family issues, but never forgetting to
have fun along the way. Havana wraps up her run on the Entervention and
Strictly Social promo tours with her LA album celebration.


On his sophomore album, Confessional, Russell Taylor has
revived the true meaning of sacrifice, “to make sacred,” and given us
sensuously starved listeners an intimate view of romantic relationships
draped in musical decadence as in times past. A truly dynamic performer,
Russell is set to blaze the Strictly Social stage for the first time
with his own brand of grown and sexy.


A Yale graduate, Michelle Shaprow has made her presence felt in the
music world by producing and performing on tracks for Om Records, Warner
Brothers, and King Britt's FiveSix label while charting on Giles
Peterson's Top 20 List and major tastemaking stations such as Los
Angeles' famed KCRW. Currently Michelle is working with brilliant
producers and musicians Alex Elena (Grammy nominated producer of Alice
Smith) and Joshua Valleau (John Legend, Imani Coppola, The Future) to
complete the upcoming album Purple Skies.

Our residents DJ Destroyer & DJ Myxzlplix will be spinning a
selection of future soul, organic hip-hop, and electronic beats all

My review of Afta-1's FORM

Afta-1 is one of my favorite artists right now! I have been digging his music for a couple of years and this year I finally got to work with him. I booked him to perform at Strictly Social in January and brought him out to San Diego last month. I also have a show this weekend with him. So needless to say I have Afta-1 on the brain! But here is my review of his second album, FORM.

Presenting my newest event ART + SOUL - Saturday June 19, 2010

Nu-Soul Magazine + The Mezz



Saturday June 19, 2010

Nu-Soul joins the Downtown Los Angeles Renaissance transforming a 100
year old speakeasy in the Alexandria Hotel into a unique experience in
sight + sound.

This special night will feature live performances from cutting edge
talent, art exhibitions from a diverse set of local artists, mood
enchancing visual projections, and LIVE ART all within the one-of-a-kind
setting of The Mezz.

Performances by:


Nikko Gray will astonish you with her sultry and powerful voice and a
sound that owes as much to classic artists like Sade as it does to
future soul champions like Little Dragon and J*Davey. With the recent
release of her debut album Love Seen, Nikko has been building a
steady buzz and a growing fanbase. See her perform over the
intergalactic beats of Afta-1.
