    Soulgasm feat. Special Guest DJ Cecil + residents Matt Kee, Yuji, & HughB this Friday at 39Hotel 


    For years now, Soulgasm has held the standard for dance filled parties in Hawaii. The monthly event, held every 3rd Friday, features house, soul, and funk and the good vibes of thirtyninehotel. Resident DJs Matt Kee, Yuji, and HughB hold down the spot every month and make sure that Chinatown keeps dancing.

    For Soulgasm’s June event, they are kicking off the summer with special guest all the way from the Bay, Oakland’s own DJ Cecil of the legendary SF parties, thePeople and Bembe.

    Cecil bio –

    Raised on old jazz and gospel records and fine-tuned by classical teachings on piano, DJ Cecil already held a deep understanding for music when he was led to hip hop in his tender teenage years. However, his arrival to the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 90‘s set the stage for his true unfolding; a path that would soon position him as an integral part of a burgeoning and beautiful underground house music & dance scene.

    His passion for music is contagious; as he cleverly fuses house with the beautiful nuances of jazz, the heart of soul music and the boom-baps of hip hop. The result is a refreshing and colorful dance floor experience, that keeps the body at attention and the heart tenderly in tune.

    DJ, musician & producer, DJ Cecil has a unique sound that delights listeners from all over the world – but perhaps his best personal accomplishments lie in the the monthly event he co-founded, “thePeople”. A signature of style, freedom and love that becomes unleashed on the dance floor, “thePeople” is now enjoying it’s fifth year as a monthly event that takes place in Oakland, California. Having hosted the likes of Rich Medina, DJ Spinna, Osunlade, Boddhisatva, Amp Fiddler & so much more, “thePeople” invigorates Bay Area nightlife with their unique offering of music, culture & art. Simply, it is a great reflection of a city full of immigrants, transplants, leftists, same-gender-loving, artists and people of color that Oakland is known to be. Expect soulful sounds from across a spectrum of genres; cutting edge bass driven broken rhythms folded into Afrobeat or Brazilian flavored tracks, and of course a little hip hop. Pulling from the influential rather than the derivative commercial end of the record crate, “thePeople” continues to be an important gathering space unlike no other.

    This all goes down from 9pm-2am this Friday night at thirtyninehotel (39 N. Hotel St.) It’s a 21+ event & $10 gets you through the door. For more info, check out:
