To celebrate Giant Step’s 25th anniversary we’ve asked DJs we have worked with over the years to share some of their favorite Giant Step tunes and memories. For the first edition, we asked Rich Medina who recently played at our Le Bain Summer Series on Monday, July 20th.
“Giant Step is one of the many NYC staple events that helped mold my perspective on open minded music presentation during the early 90s. I spent countless nights standing on line waiting to get into MK’s & other various Giant Step events, attained a mountain of their promotional 12″s in The Premium Record Pool, and saw many of my favorite Giant Step artists perform live thanks to this fantastic organization.
Giant Step represents a window of growth and progressive programming that I will always remember as key to helping me become a true club kid and working class DJ. For me, the brand and what they represent is paramount to the club world and music programming outside of FM radio as we know it. Long live Giant Step. Thanks for all the music, experiences, and opportunity to collaborate over the past 25 years. Salute.”
Rich focused strictly on the Giant Step Records catalogue for his playlist.
