Future Old School

Future Old School

www.FutureOldSchool.Com

Future Old School is an all-rap dance party that takes place on the last Saturday of every month at Friends and Lovers in Crown Heights.  Started by Brooklyn-based DJs Dash Speaks, NSR, Friends w Benefits, and Will Buck as a forum to play the old-school rap music on which they grew up for themselves and their friends, FOS has since become one of the best monthly parties in New York City.  It's a fresh take on an old-school party - grounded in the music that pulls at the heart-strings of millennial hip hop heads at a venue that captures the energy of a quickly vanishing New York.  In the past few months alone, guests have included Pete Rock, Maseo, J. Period, Pharoahe Monch, DMC Champion DJ Esquire, Statik Selektah and Grand Wizard Theodore.
