Love Rescue! Zernell, Ben Manzone, Love On The Run Thank You's and Playlists from 3/12/10!

Whoah, what a crowded party that night! Lots of people came out, and there were great sets spun by all! Mega special thanks to Zernell for trooping out with a heavy bag of records for this party. This is an all vinyl set up, and he flew out from Chicago carrying a heavy bag of treats for us all! Thx to guest DJs Zernell and Ben Manzone for all the great tunes, and thanks to all of the great Secret Rendezvous party people that came out for the night like Afro King Osita and his crew of beautiful people, Xerxes and the fantastic Orchard crew, power couple Johnny Paycheck & Em the fashion Queen from Good Records, Doc Delay, The ever fashionable Seize sur Vingt Soho crew, The sexy Kiki De Montparnasse girls, Steve "Shakewell", James, Frantz, sweet Julia of Javybz, The Downtown Affair Djs and their crew keeping real radio alive on WNYU FM, Dirty Diana, the very talented posse of Mr & Mrs Guido and Joe & Leonora, Basie-Boogie from Soulstrut, Zernell's fantastic fam and friends, Ben's beauties, Mikie Lixx, everyone I forgot to name, and all the dancers as well as all the beautiful women that were getting their boogie on that night! I also love to thank the 4am crew that keeps it real as fuck and wants to hear every damn record played until the lights come on! Zernell took many to school that evening!

You can watch a couple of dark videos, or at least listen to some of them here:
