RBMA NYC: LAST NIGHT A DJ SAVED MY SOUL
THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO FLOORPLAN, DJ PIERRE, ANN NESBY OF SOUNDS OF BLACKNESS, JOUBERT SINGERS, TERRENCE PARKER, KENNY BOBIEN, PAUL NICKERSON (SLOW TO SPEAK) AND BUDGIE
Inspired by the RBMA Daily article of the same name, Last Night A DJ Saved My Soul brings together artists saving souls on and off the dancefloor through a unique synthesis of transcendent music and transportive messages. We explore the deep connection between house music and gospel with legendary group Joubert Singers, whose “Stand On the Word” became a Paradise Garage classic, and New Jersey’s own “King of Gospel House” Kenny Bobien. They are joined by Detroit pioneers Terrence Parker and Robert Hood (aka Floorplan), himself a minister, as well as DJ Pierre of acid house pioneers Phuture. Rounding out the lineup are Ann Nesby, lead singer of Sounds of Blackness, as well as Budgie and Slow To Speak’s Paul Nickerson, who have both emphasized the continued emotional impact of disco, house and gospel throughout their respective DJ careers.
