It's a party babe...

And a party it was last night at Capitol Club for the regularly scheduled Monday night party, Jet Set. In case you've had your head in the sand, Jet Set is a weekly party put on by Members Only that features resident DJ's 100Proof and Swervewon and usually a performance by some local artists or guest DJ. In my experience these parties are usually live...and this Monday was no different. Last night was the album release party for Hi-Life Soundsystem (@HilifeSound). The HLS trio is made up of rappers Khingz, B-Flat, and producer Crispy. HLS have released a couple tracks (Death Of The Party, Bounce) but other than that the remainder has been kept well under wraps until last night. The party got started as usual with DJ 100proof starting things off and then giving way to Swervewon. Shortly after that Khingzand B-Flat took the "stage" as people crowded around. As ironic as it sounds, the party really got started when the duo let loose with Death Of The Party...and continued throughout the night. They invited guests Helladope, Mikey Nice, and State Of The Artist to the "stage" to perform their feature tracks. Hi-Life bowed out gracefully after a few songs as DJ Vitamin D took over on the wheels for his J Dilla inspired set. It's safe to say that Hi-Life turned the party out. The best part for those of you who are monetarily challenged...the album is FREE. I couldn't believe it either...I even brought cash to buy it, but who am I to argue with the dude Khingz giving away free albums during his birthweek. Hit the link below to download the album, and check out Jet Set every Monday at Capitol Club.
