The PAN Party Heats Up NYC Once Again!


DJ Sirak and DJ Xpect are back at it with another PAN party Friday June 29 with special guest DJ Ronny from Ghana. Pay attention because the party has transferred spots to Harlem's Cafe Addis on W 125th st. PAN is a global pan-African experience that brings the best “young, fresh, and creative sounds coming out of the African diaspora at large.” To say that this party is a hype sweat parlor of body bouncing for NYC's beautiful diasporic community (super model Ger Duany was spotted at the last joint) is NOT an overstatement. Peep full details below and "like" their new Facebook page here.
