The Freedom Party® NYC returns to its favorite home on Bleecker Street on Sunday, Feb 14, no work/school the next day. Freedom held its longest residency at LPR–over four long years of rocking hundreds of people each Friday. They returned on Jan 17 last month and brought the house down once again, filling two rooms with party people from around the world. They can’t wait to have at it again!!!!!

Featuring

Herbert Holler, Marc Smooth and DJ Cosi
Freedom Party DJs

The Freedom Party® is the longest running Friday-night dance party in NYC history! Created in 2003 by Herbert Holler, DJ Cosi and Marc Smooth, Freedom’s mission is to preserve the genuine, classic NYC nightlife vibe by putting music first and providing a place for people from all walks of life to dance and be free, regardless of whom they know or how much money they make. Playing a tight mix of danceable, soulful hits from the 60s through today, including hip-hop, house, disco, R&B classics, rock, reggae, classic pop and more, the Freedom Party® continues to fill its dance floor each week with positive, fun, beautiful people from all over the globe looking to have an unforgettable NYC party experience.

In 2010, Freedom won Papermag‘s award for “Best Party (Peoples Choice),” and received an honorable mention in URB Magazine‘s “Best Party” nationwide. In 2015, Freedom won Village Voice’s highly coveted award for “Best Dance Party.”

In the summer of 2011, Freedom flew Midwest to begin a new journey. Now in its fifth year, Freedom Party® CHI has quickly become the Second City’s #1 party destination. Each month, Freedom brings hundreds of discerning partygoers to its dance floor (now at Beauty Bar, 1444 West Chicago Ave), spreading that NYC love to new listeners and growing the Freedom family.

In the summer of 2013, Freedom celebrated its 10-year anniversary with a huge dance party at Summerstage in Central Park, one of the most legendary outdoor venues in the world. Featuring a live performance by Cameo, one of the highest grossing funk bands of all time, the event saw thousands of people in attendance and completed its excitement with a two-hour dance party. It was such a successful production, Summerstage made Freedom their annual dance party, and they’ve been there every summer since, playing to a capacity crowd!

Now in its 12th year, the Freedom Party® NYC continues to pack its dance floor at highly sought-after events throughout the month and add the most legendary dance destinations in town to its resume, including “One Step Beyond” at the American Museum of Natural History, Midsummer Night Swing at Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden Spring Gala, Central Park Summerstage, First Saturdays at the Brooklyn Museum, Celebrate Brooklyn at Brooklyn Bridge Park and more, not-to-mention a number of sold-out nights abroad in Philadelphia, Atlanta and DC.

Thousands of people are in attendance at these events. Thousands of people dancing to the sounds of FREEDOM!

On September 10th 1968, Bed Stuy,Brooklyn gave birth to one of hip-hop’s most lyrical, diverse, innovative, trendsetting M.C.’s known by many attributes such as Dark Gable, Black Caesar and King Asiatic Nobody’s Equal but, known to the world as Big Daddy Kane.

This baritone voiced, stylish dressing M.C. was the one to first bring the “playa” element to hip-hop, and along with Bobby Brown and Michael Jordan put dark skin back on the map. Big Daddy Kane was the first rapper to ever hold not one but two sold out shows at the world famous Apollo Theater for women only. Appearing in magazines from Right On up to Source and let’s not forget the infamous Madonna Sex book which features Kane in half nude photos with Madonna and Naomi Campbell. However, in the words of the late Big Pun, Kane is not only a playa, he just crush a lot. Referring to his rapid fire, metaphoric battle rap style.

Kane’s influences are Muhammad Ali, Marvin Gaye, and his rap hero Grand Master Caz of the Cold Crush Brothers, but once joined on stage with dancers Scoob Lover and Scrap Lover you can clearly see the James Brown and the Famous Flames influence as well. With several Gold albums Kane has endured a long career giving us a catalogue of music such as “Long Live The Kane” that features hit songs “Ain’t No Half Steppin’” and “Raw”. “It’s A Big Daddy Thing” which features “Smooth Operator,” “Warm It Up” and the Teddy Riley produced hit “I Get The Job Done.” “Taste Of Chocolate” which features “Hard Being The Kane” and “All Of Me” a duet with the late legendary Barry White. Additional albums were “Prince Of Darkness,” “Looks Like A Job For…” and “Daddy’s Home.” Big Daddy Kane has also recorded on soundtracks with “Lean On Me (Rap Summary)” from the film “Lean On Me”. “Nuff Respect” from the film “Juice”. The Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis produced “A Job Ain’t Nothin’ But Work” from “Mo’ Money”, and of course “Raw” from the film “Colors.”

Kane has also made a few movie appearances in “Posse,” “Meteor Man” and most recently “Dead Heist,” “Love 4 Sale” and “Just Another Day.”
Kane’s baritone voice has also been heard as the narrator of the documentary film “Notorious” and a couple of cameo appearances in “Brown Sugar” and “Gunmen”. As a powerful figure in the rap game Kane has collaborated with many artist such as Kool G Rap, Masta Ace and Craig G on the Marley Marl produced “Symphany”. He has worked with Public Enemy and Ice Cube on the single “Burn, Hollywood Burn,” with Heavy D on the single “Don’t Curse”, with UGK on “Next Up”, with Busta Rhymes on the remix of “Don’t Touch Me”, with Patti LaBelle on the certified gold single “Feels Like Another One” and `the Quincy Jones multi-platinum masterpiece “Tribute To Birdland” and the title cut “Back On The Block” from the album of the same name. All of that along with one Grammy, does that make Big Daddy Kane a hip-hop legend? Well, the 2005 VH1 Hip Hop Honors seems to think so, and so do millions of fans worldwide. LONG LIVE THE KANE!!!

Fronted by MC’s Rodstarz, and MC/Producer G1, Rebel Diaz shows us the true global power of Hip-Hop. After first performing at an immigrant rights march in New York City in 2006 in front of a half million people, the bilingual crew has taken the international community by storm with their explosive live shows. With influences ranging from Chicago house to South American folk, Rebel Diaz combines classic boom bap tradition with Hip-Hop’s global impact. The group’s versatility has allowed for them to share the stage with the likes of Common, Mos Def, and Public Enemy, while feeling right at home with acts like Rage Against the Machine and Calle 13.

DJ Herbert Holler (Freedom Party)

“When I was little, I had problems sleeping. I wasn’t putting myself to bed ever, really. My parents tried everything in the book to get me out, but nothing worked. One night, my dad was at the bar doing his funny dance to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” and I asked him to pick me up. Less than five minutes later, I was out. Every night thereafter, he slung me over his shoulder just before bedtime and danced me to sleep—to Queen, Styx, Chicago, Meatloaf and lots and lots of Electric Light Orchestra.

ELO was our personal favorite. I ended up memorizing every word to every song off “Out of the Blue.” Anytime we were in his Honda Accord ’87, that 8-track went in. My mom had her input, too. Mostly Billy Joel, Tom Jones, maybe some Diana Ross. She tried singing me to sleep some nights, but “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” doesn’t really set the mood for deep slumber. She gave me my very first piece of vinyl—1966’s “The Best of the Beach Boys.” After the needle gave up trying to stick to that record, she handed me the soundtrack to “Hair.” When the day finally came for me to start learning the value of a dollar and buy my own music, the first tape I went out and purchased was…Run DMC’s “Raising Hell.”

How I got from 70s operatic rock, surf ditties, and Broadway musicals to hip-hop, I’ll never know. But that diversity has stuck with me through this day. Just when I pledge allegiance to some new rap artist, I’m a bloodthirsty digger searching for a new, synthetic electronic sound I heard on satellite radio or on somebody’s blog. And then I’m back frantically Googling a soul or disco sample I recognized from an old tune, or putting the finishing touches on a Dubstep mix I took way too much time obsessing over, or re-organizing my playlists so I know the difference between bounce, trap and an old dirty-South anthem.

The question of how I ended up spending half my waking hours in a nightclub is easy: I practically grew up in one. Again, my father’s to blame. He used to be the Food & Beverage Manager at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ, my hometown. I clocked in more hours at that place than some of the people on payroll. And this was the 80s, mind you, when the casino strip was as glamorous as ever: fur coats, pearl necklaces, big Cadillacs and Liberace (who I saw live…many times). The lights, the sounds, the electricity in the air, even the smells…these things never left.

Nor has my penchant for making people smile. In grade school I brought class clown to a new level. It cost me my grades, and also led to a few suspensions. But there was nothing I enjoyed more than leaving my classmates in stitches. Sometimes, even the teacher had to take a second to regain composure. I thought maybe I’d make a good Psychologist, helping people smile, so I went Premed at NYU, till I realized the night before classes started that I’d have to sit still and study a lot. (Hence the B.A..) Naturally, I tried my hand at comedy, but I couldn’t afford to be broke, and I was already getting gigs and discovering my knack for making dance floors pop. So, it was settled. I was to be a professional DJ.

Today, my career is in its 11 about every lounge, bar and dance club from Wall Street to 125 with a growing list of high-profile clients and world-renown artists, have held residences and guest spots across the globe, and claim ownership of the longest running weekly Friday-night party in NYC history: The Freedom Dance Party. After years of hard work, dedication and professionalism, my name and reputation as a DJ in the music and entertainment industry precedes itself. And though I don’t get to play nearly as much ELO at the gigs as I’d like to, and 8-track tapes (and Liberace) are long gone, my love for the music, the night, and for making people smile are still here.” – Herbert Holler
