Last Friday, Team Epiphany and Complex Media continued #SUMMERFRIDAYS – an annual event series that brings together NYC’s most influential tastemakers – with the second activation of the summer, The Sleepover.
Aptly named, ‘The Sleepover’ was a pajama party for adults that brought back all the nostalgia of the classic 90’s house-party. Held in Brooklyn at the cornerstone nightlife venue Kinfolk, partygoers enjoyed custom-themed cocktails provided by Avion as guests took pictures with The Sleepover’s mascot, a life-sized teddy bear. #SUMMERFRIDAYS resident DJ, DJ Wonder provided the mix for the evening – which will be available every week here, powered by JBL Audio.
Midway through the event, Team Epiphany Founder and Managing Partner Coltrane Curtis introduced two of today’s hottest up-and-coming hip-hop artist –as GoldLink and Masego took the stage to perform.
One of the most talented emerging artist today, Masego brought his live instrumentation (saxophone) and unique TrapHouse Jazz melodies to the stage with an upbeat performance of his stand out singles “Seniorita”, “Girls That Dance” and “Bounce”.
Following Masego’s set, Soulection recording artist and 2015 XXL Freshman GoldLink performed his hits “Spectrum”, “Dance On Me” and “Late Night” featuring Masego!
This finale of this year’s #SUMMERFRIDAYS events series will take place this Friday at a Williamsburg hotspot where 10 of NYC’s most influential brands, restaurants and companies will compete to have the highest average score in a charity bowling competition. The winning team will have money donated to the Harold Hunter Foundation in their name. Teams will include: Pintrill, Jason Mark, Mighty Healthy, Sweetchick, Greats, Married to the Mob and more. The event will also include a special guest DJ and amazing eats provided by Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken.
Originally launched in 2009, the series was rebranded in June 2012 as #SUMMERFRIDAYS, and has since become the go-to event for New Yorkers in-the-know.
