3Degrees of So Very: Saturday, September 22

3Degrees 22 Sept: with FLX and DajaeThis Saturday, September 22nd at Lotus Soundbar will be the second installment of 3Degrees in Hawaii. The first was the fabulous show in May with FLX, Monna, and Julius the Mad Thinker on the decks and Kenny Bobien on the microphone. This time, it’s FLX, Haboh, and Ms.Angel on the decks and legendary house vocalist Dajae on the microphone.

Known for major club anthems like “Brighter Days”, and a more recent favorite on The So Very Show, “Say You Will” (with Cajmere), Dajae knows how to use her powerful voice to get the dancefloor moving. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to see her in person, and dance the night away the way it should be done – with house music.

The So Very Show is honored and proud to be a part of this event, and to support FLX and the cool cats at 3Degrees, who are quite busy spreading the love and house vibes all over the country. To get in on the action, check out 3degreesglobal.com. We’ll be doing our thing early, and Randy Wheeler will be on sax as well. Check out Randy on YouTube at Lotus for Louie Vega:

In case you missed it, here’s Kenny Bobien at the last 3Degrees party at Lotus. I know you can feel that vibe!

Show Some Love, Get Some Therapy

SV 4-19-07 w/guest DJ Mr. Nick

Our guest dj on The So Very Show this week is Next Door Honolulu’s newest resident, DJ Mr. Nick. Mr. Nick has been holding it down in the upstairs lounge on some of Next Door’s most popular nights, and he’ll be there on Friday with his eclectic blend of “feel good” music. What’s that you ask? Well, we’ll drill him on that, and maybe some of his other adventures. Stay tuned for some silky smooth house!

Coming up this Friday is a visit to Honolulu from our favorite Montreal native, Jojo Flores as he brings his internationally reknown party, Therapy to Next Door. Jojo visited us on the show in September of last year and the very next night, he played an amazing set at Next Door. We also had the privilege of seeing him once again at the Therapy/gotsoul party at in South Beach, Miami at the Winter Music Conference last month. The 3Degrees resident played along side of Osunlade (Yoruba Records) and Danny Krivit. The excellent music and colorful vibe of the crowd that night made it one of our favorites of the conference, and we’ve been looking forward to seeing him again ever since. In honor of Jojo’s return, we’ll be playing a bit of his Therapy mix cd. The folks at Next Door have also asked us to give away some passes to see Jojo tomorrow night. Tune in to win!

Paolo, Jun Jo, and a BBQ!

We’ve got a very special guest dj this week. Lotus Soundbar in Waikiki and the Aya boys are bringing out Paolo Mojo (UK – Balance 009/Pryda) to spin at Lotus on Friday night. And lucky us, we get to interview him on the show this week!

Paolo Mojo at Lotus Soundbar

Paolo Mojo’s sound might be difficult to pin down, but this broad, innovative approach to his craft is making him a name on everyone’s lips in 2004. His style incorporates elements of house, funk, techno, breaks, electro, disco and acid. “I’ve never understood this ‘genre’ bollocks” he says. “To me the best DJs always select the best bits from a wide range of sounds and put them together in a way that just makes sense to people.”

Paolo’s been touring all over Europe supporting his Balance release. He tore it up at the Living Room on Halloween, 2005. His return to Hawaii looks to be very exciting! We can’t wait to hear what he plays!

Jun Jo’s back in town! Jun Jo (aka Jimmy James) has been a So Very show guest on several occasions and we’re always stoked to see him in Hawaii. He’ll be supporting his boys (Aya) at Lotus. Speaking of Aya boys, Akio and Ramyt (Archangel) will be opening for Paolo on Friday. This is Ramyt’s first set at Lotus, and first set out in a long time! Welcome back! We know he’ll do awesome. (For his latest set on the So Very show, visit 8.31.06 mix by Ramyt.)
