Being cooped up at home can be stressful and even more so when social interactions are taken away from you. Thankfully, we have music collectives that are bringing virtual parties to your home screens for you to enjoy a night in.
So lock the doors, close the windows and get jiggy with these parties.
Zouk Digital is back at it again to bring home viewers another installment of SESSIONS. The online party programming features pre-recordings of live DJ sets from some of its signature nights.
In tonight’s session, local DJs Nash D, Rattle & rapper THELIONCITYBOY will take you on a ride of hip-hop’s finest selects and the hottest R&B jams. The party starts on Facebook or YouTube from 10:30pm.
Lock the doors and turn up the volume to the tunes of the club you miss!
