This past week, the Magnificent one…Dj Jazzy Jeff threw a special private seminar retreat with some of the best & brightest Djs/Producers/Tastemakers at his own crib (talking about having a house like Uncle Phil). The Playlist Retreat 2015 is an intimate gathering of progressive artists for the purpose of inspiration, motivation and collaboration. It is an organic exchange between people who believe in the greater purpose of expression through music.
Our very own Shortkut was asked to participate in the seminar (& we’re pretty jealous that we’re not invited…haha). Congratulations to Jeff for pulling this incredible private event. Peep out the video to see what it’s all about and catch who was in the retreat.
