We did it again. The January 2008 edition of Strictly Social was just plain incredible! This monthly event is quickly becoming one of the coolest nights in the LA soul scene. The evening started off with a listening party for HEAVy’s amazing album JazzMoney$$. This next level album set the tone for the rest of the night and the early birds were able to cop a free copy of this excellent album

The venue was adorned with the photography of Kawai Matthews or Air Philosophy. She has shot the likes of J*Davey, Vikter Duplaix, Jazzy, and more!

DJ Moonbaby took control of the decks at 10:30 dropping some hot beats on the swelling crowd. Then at 11pm Amber Ojeda and her band took to the stage for their soul/hip-hop/jazz blend. The heads were nodding in approval throughout her set!

Then Jimi James took the stage with her incredible showmanship and skills on the mic. She was carried onto the stage like a mannequin before unleashing her high energy performance that spanned hip-hop, soul, and progressive electro soul. This is what Nu-Soul and Strictly Social is all about! Eclectic soul fusion at its finest!!!
