reOPENed crew blows up some more; party nominated by Paper Magazine with Que Bajo?!, new Just Blaze video and Max Glazer and Vybz Kartel track

As you already know, our Friday night reOPENed party has been tearing it up since 2008 when Q-Tip held the reigns, and with the creative visionary Just Blaze as the current headlining DJ it remains the premier party in the city. Once again the diverse, cross-genre gathering has been nominated by Paper Magazine as the "Best Party" for the Sixth Annual Nightlife Awards, alongside our Wednesday party Que Bajo?!.

Don't forget to vote Roxy Cottontail for "Best DJ" and James Coppola for "Best Promoter!"

This news comes alongside two exciting new releases. The top selling hip-hop album, which monopolized the #1 spot for months hip-hop, is Eminem's Recovery album. As of a few days ago it was supplanted by Lil Wayne's I Am Not A Human Being. That helps to explain the success of the newest single off of Recovery, "No Love" by Eminem featuring Lil' Wayne produced by Santos resident Just Blaze. Just can be seen prominently in the video putting in work behind the boards and sangin' the chorus. See below:

You might know Vybz Kartel as one of the most important vocailsts in dancehall and modern reggae, or for his notable collaborations with Mavado, Beenie Man, The Alliance, and the recent Major Lazer project for which he lent his vocals to the international smash hit "Pon De Floor." He has received numerous Caribbean music awards, including EME's "Songwriter/Lyricist of the Year" award in 2009 and 2010. His most recent offering "White Wine" features production by the reOPENed party's Max Glazer of the Federation Sound crew.

reOPENed goes down every Friday at 10pm. Upstairs it's Just Blaze and DJ Soul, downstairs it's DJ Gravy, Micro Don and Max Glazer. Special guest for 10/05/2010 is DJ Iron Lyon!
