Music is a second passion of mine. I can listen to music all day and night. When I listen to music I feel connected to the human spirit. We are all connected and I believe music is one thing that proves that. Music is the universal language that has the power to unite friends, strangers, cities and even countries. I am fortunate enough to have created a circle of friends who also love music as much as I do. Last night I attended a new Wednesday night party at G2 in the meat-packing district. If you’re not from New York, the meat-packing district is the trendy part of town made famous when Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha Jones moved into the neighborhood on “Sex and the City.”
My friend DJ Uri Dalal was the host DJ for the night. Boy did I have a great time. The first night of any event is questionable especially in the middle of the week. However, this spot will definitely be my summer hang out on a Wednesday night. Plus, you can never go wrong when you are surrounded by good people, a drink in hand, a stylish atmosphere and great beats in the background.
In my opinion, music defines the human spirit because it invokes emotion and defines your state of mind. It’s the one thing that doesn’t care how much money you make or what you look like. Music can make you cry, laugh, smile and make you want to get up and dance.
Honestly, that’s what happened to me last night, I wanted to get up and dance because DJ Uri Dalal was throwing down some slamming beats. It’s always nice to have a friend who is a DJ because you are introduced to some amazing music; music that you would never know about because DJs are plugged into the matrix of sound. Until yesterday, I knew nothing about a group called “Die Antwoord.” DIE ANTWOORD is a futuristic rap-rave crew from South Africa who represent a fresh new style called ZEF. I am in love with them. The sound is different but was an instant favorite of mine.
