NYC: ?uestlove + Special Guests At CHURCH 1-Year Anniversary [12/7]

Questlove DJs CHURCH 1-year Anniversary

This Friday DJ ?uestlove touches the set at Mark de Clive Lowe‘s Church residency, which is already a New York nightlife institution of sorts, at least where progressive music is concerned. For this special 1-year anniversary edition, ?uesto and MdCL will be joined by Casey Benjamin of Robert Glasper Experiment. Revivalist has the story:

CHURCH is a whirlwind mix of live jazz, sampling and a DJ set. Fast becoming the discerning
music-lovers’ and musicians’ event of choice, don’t be surprised if you spot the likes of Master
at Work Louie Vega or soul legend Leon Ware in the audience; Chris “Daddy” Dave, Marcus
Strickland, James Genus, MC John Robinson or Miguel Atwood-Ferguson on the stage and the
likes of The Gaslamp Killer or DJ Spinna on the decks. The first live set showcases the jazz
side of MdCL, blending the jazz history, groove explorations and classic trio interplay with
resampling, electronics and live remixing. As the first set draws to a close, the guest DJ takes
over the soundtrack while the tables and chairs are cleared away for MdCL to flip the script with
the second set – a unique blend of live electronica and live remixing – the jazz club colliding head
to head with the dance floor. This month, be prepared for sparks to fly as MdCL goes head-to-
head with the incomparible DJ, Questlove
