HIAH Partners with LilSoSo & Smirnoff: Event Recap

23 Nov

I’ve said before that I’m very blessed to be in the company of some great event producers, such as LilSoSo Productions out of the Metropolitan area.¬† I’ve praised Kat and her team for concepts that far exceed the regular party scene. If you haven’t been to a LilSoSo event, well, it’s not because I haven’t told you. #DoBetter

So, this past Wednesday, Hell In A Handbag partnered with LilSoSo Productions in it’s Party Rockers, Master of the Mix campaign for Smirnoff. In a new reality show concept, 7 DJs began a quest to be named Master of the Mix. Hosted by Just Blaze and Kid Capri, watch world-renown DJs compete weekly in innovative challenges that test their skill and diversity of sound.

I had a chance for more on-air camera time as a community partner, talking about HIAH as a lifestyle and entertainment blog for metropolitan Soulcialites. I also had a chance to partner with BlackSnob.com {Danielle is a blog inspiration} and Jessica Solomon of SparkCreativity.info Here’s a picture of all three of us.

This event was rhythmic. We danced to a mix of soul infused, Afro Brazilian, salsa beats over hip hop and MJ tracks. It’s difficult to comprehend, and harder to explain, but I want to thank DJ Asho and DJ Meistro for their mixes. On tap again was The Vibe Conductor DJ Stylus. Together the three DJs seamlessly mixed their styles and kept the crowd energized.

Also on the mic was the combo of Nea Posey {singer/host extraordinare} and the UK Sensation. Nea and I have shared a few laughs over the last year. She’s a GEM.

The music faded to the back as the crowd watched the third episode of the series. Again, the tasks were challenging and unique, but this episode lacked some drama – no one was sent home.

For more event coverage, check CandaceNicole In the City’s blog here. I’m sure LilSoSo and Eddie B {of http://www.heyed.com} will have video up shortly.

The next installment of Master of the Mix is tonight at Tabaq on U Street. RSVP at http://www.lilsoso.com

    Your dismay and challenge to the show for the next episode were both quite adorable. The camera likes you.
