When: Sun., Aug. 4, 9 p.m. 2013
If you fondly recall the days when boomboxes blasted old school hip-hop, R&B, and soul, the new party Stereo Sundays is for you. On the first and fourth Sundays of every month at SomaR (1727 Telegraph Ave., Oakland), local DJs Henroc and Mpenzi play vintage summer jams. Both DJs are local nightlife veterans known for their funky, world-beat sound: Henroc has been a resident DJ at Reggae Gold and Smoove, specializing in soul, hip-hop, dancehall, and Soca; Mpenzi was one of the founders of the longrunning MÄJOR SUNDAYS, a soul/roots party at SomaR that ended in 2011. Expect the duo to dust off their eclectic record (and maybe even cassette) collections and showcase party music by international artists.
