Giant Step: DJ Lefto

The funk fanatics at Giant Step host a night with Brussels hotshot DJ Lefto, who's making his U.S. debut with this Brooklyn gig. The funk, hip-hop, soul and jazz maven, one of the men behind the B9000 label, is an unknown quantity to most New Yorkers—but he's a fave of Gilles Peterson, and that's good enough of a recommendation for us.
