Wednesday July 21, 2010

Strictly Social takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at

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
