Every March hip-hop heads and music fans everywhere remember the loss of the greatest rapper of all time, Brooklyn’s own, the Notorious BIG. On Friday, March 7th 2014 at Littlefield, the popular Brooklyn monthly party known as Revival, which takes place every second Saturday, invites long-time Biggie Smalls collaborator, DJ Clark Kent, and mixtape king, J.Period, to join residents Rich Medina and PQ in dedicating a whole night of music, breaks and dancing to the memory of our notorious fallen hero.
As we welcome the legendary DJs Clark Kent and J.Period into our mix, you can rest assured the dancefloor will be packed, and we will “SPREAD LOVE…THE BROOKLYN WAY”.
Revival regularly takes place every second Saturday with resident DJs RICH MEDINA and PQ at the helm, Revival attracts an ecclectic crowd with a penchant for dance moves. Each month features a different special guest DJ set, adding a slightly different music flavor to the mix. The guest DJs, who have included such venerable names as Tony Touch, Cosmo Baker, Stretch Armstrong, DJ Soul, Sake 1, and more, are given the reigns to take the crowd on the musical journey of their choice, with only one guiding principal: people should be dancing.
