Any time major-league beat manipulator DJ Seduce is a featured MC, you know its gotta be one hot, blowing-up-the-spot shindig. The musical-mélange master who spins a pleasing mixture of Afro funk, soul música, Cubana, and more is a wizard at flooding dance floors with positive energy. Now imagine said scene when its dudes birthday, a CD-release celebration for The Neoprimitive 10-piece world-music band, and an ASU after-graduation get-together. Hot damn! Marinate your ears and shake your booty to all of this and more when Afro:Baile takes over The Loft. And just in case the aforementioned lineup doesnt sound hip enough -- can you hear the sarcasm in our voice? -- Seduce booked NYC DJ Speek Greene of the raw-mic-meets-organic-beats project The Great Soul Parade.
