Give It A Name

Editorial Review

The Loft has been a great outlet for stripping parties down to the essence: DJs going full tilt for serious heads. It's been a good space for Washington's DJs to come together in ways they wouldn't be able to at conventional venues. The lineup of Double o7's Give It A Name jam unifies the hip-hop and house worlds tonight. Orbit 122 brings the true school hip-hop energy from his runs at Chief Ike's and Blue Room, and he teams up with John Bowen, whose VJ skills were most recently on display at Laced. Curt Clay and Double o7 will handle the four to the floor house rhythms.
