DJ Jazzy Jeff recently hosted the second annual PlayList Retreat, a private networking event that boasts a who’s who of influential DJs, artists, producers and more.
Like last year’s inaugural retreat, the 2016 event took place at Jeff’s sprawling estate in Delaware and featured a diverse group of attendees. They included legends such as Z-Trip, Shortkut, Lord Finesse, and Ali Shaheed Muhammad, along with new school figures like Aloe Blacc, Grandtheft, Skratch Bastid, and Four Color Zack. Also in attendance were two of hip-hop’s most respected engineers, Bob Power and Young Guru.
“[The PlayList Retreat] is basically a collection of people who put creativity before anything,” Jeff said in his opening address. “Being in a music space [where] that’s not always the case, that’s what makes gatherings like this very special.”
“This is an incredible, life-changing experience,” Teeko commented. “The inspiration will resonate with me for the rest of my life.”
Aloe Blacc added, “This has been the best event in my music career. I haven’t met so many great friends and got a chance to work with so many talented artists [before].”
