Kode 9 and Benji B Deviation NYC July 4 2012

First Ever DEVIATION NYC Session on July 4th 2012

Kode 9 and Benji B Deviation NYC July 4 2012

Last fall I had the pleasure of attending London’s annual Notting Hill Carnival, Europe’s largest two-day street festival. That same week I attended my first Deviation sessions. Living in NYC, it’s been a while since I’ve felt any semblance of a scene, but in London the music culture is thriving as if the scene had never left, and perhaps that’s because it hasn’t. For nearly 5 years (the anniversary is coming up this October) and 53 editions thus far, BBC Radio 1 DJ Benji-B and Deviation have been shining light on both local and international legends (or soon-to-be) with their down and dirty basement style sessions. Now for the first time the party is coming to NYC.

The same day America celebrates it’s Independence, Deviation and Red Bull Music Academy present a proper British invasion when DJ Benji B (his first NYC date in almost 3 years), host MC Judah, very special guest (not to mention one of our favorite DJ’s) and boss of Hyperdub Records Kode 9, plus one other guest to be announced shortly, all the way from London for this exclusive one off session this July 4th.

So mark your calendars, pace yourself this holiday, and plan to head on over to Le Poison Rouge after the fireworks as this five years in the making event comes to life.
