Some Call It House… We Call it Heaven!

“We were inspired by the concept of six degrees of separation; the idea that everyone in the world is connected by at most six different people. But it is our belief that like-minded individuals are actually separated by only three.” []

I first heard about 3Degrees when Passean visited us on The So Very Show in 2004. That was before I had met FLX and before I had ever visited Chicago. I knew that I loved music and I knew that I loved to dance. I liked the people that I met when I went dancing, and I liked sharing music with my friends – and having them share it with me. It felt like discovery.

Nearly 3 years later, the 3Degrees crew is coming to Hawaii. They are bringing 3 djs: FLX, Monna, and Julius the Mad Thinker. We met Julius this past March in Miami at the Winter Music Conference.

We’ll be interviewing Julius on the show tonight. We’ll be discussing 3Degrees’ unique concept, their sound, their success, and what the 3Degrees crew is up to now, including their upcoming show in at Lotus Soundbar in Waikiki this Saturday:

“Saturday May 19th, 2007, Chicago based DJ/promotion collective 3° Global (Three Degrees Global), and Lotus present the 6th annual, and Hawaii debut of the “3Degrees Some Call It House…We Call It Home tour” @ Lotus Soundbar. The tour will feature a live performance by New Jersey’s Kenny Bobien, along with international DJ’s and Chicago residents, Julius the Mad Thinker, Monna, DJ FLX, & host Priti Gandhi of 3Degrees Global. 3Degrees Global promotions specialize in bringing like-minded, yet culturally diverse groups together while providing mind-blowing entertainment. This event will be no exception!”[Source: 3Degrees Press Release]

3Degrees at Lotus 5.19.07Many house fans will recognize New Jersey-based house vocalist Kenny Bobien – if not his name, his unique voice and singing style. He’s worked with Dennis Ferrer and Frankie Feliciano, and put out releases on Records of Interest, King Street, and Night Grooves. Kenny is a Grammy-award winning artist who will be performing some of his songs live at Lotus Soundbar. This is his first trip to Hawaii, and I got a chance to catch his performance for myself this past March in Miami. To sum it up in a word: inspirational. We’ll be playing some of his songs, as well as an original by Julius and a mix by Julius – just to give you a teaser for this Saturday. You know how we do!

Add to that, a live mix, possibly some giveaways, and some (long overdue) pick-of-the-week tracks, plus some new stuff I’ve got that I’m aching to play – it’s gonna be a great show!

Oh! And did I mention Kenny’s married to another one of my favorite artists – Stephanie Cooke!

Love and hugs,

PS – pssst. Check the sidebar for some freebies… you know you want ‘em. Thanks to Ioda Promonet for the hookup. Songs listed in the “Downloads” category have all been featured on our show.
