Growing tired of the typical club scene of strict door policies, bottle sparklers, promoter politics, and the same music, Brooklyn Took It is an environment dedicated to sharing quality music and good vibes. Taking it back to when the music truly mattered, each month will also feature a guest DJ that will showcase their creativity and talents while keeping the party going.
"We're just bringing a dope party vibe back to Brooklyn. There's something really special going on out here and we wanted to contribute in our own way. We have a lot to offer in creativity and we feel at home doing it here in Brooklyn. It's nothing against any other borough or DJ. We just got tired of the politics in the city and wanted something different."
"We're not trying to save the scene or change it. We're not in competition with anyone nor do we care to be. We just wanted to throw an event that focuses on what we think is good music, and provides a positive environment for people of all different backgrounds that have one thing in common...the love for music and dance."
Each month Brooklyn Took It features a guest DJ to add to the unique style and feel of the event. Every guest DJ brings their own level of creativity and style to the tables, which results in the perfect balance of energy, skill, and music selection.

This month's edition features a DJ that I had the pleasure of teaching at Scratch DJ Academy years ago and soon after finishing, went on to make some pretty legit moves in the NYC club scene. The Panamanian born, Brooklyn raised artist, DJ Pollux Star, calls upon his diverse cultural background to rock crowds while infusing hip hop, r&b, disco, soul, house, dance, reggae, and latin vibes into his sets.
