ABOUT BROOKLYN TOOK IT

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.

So what exactly does Brooklyn Took It mean?

Noumenon "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."

Rogue "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."

november EDITION

November's edition of Brooklyn Took It features one of our favorite party rockin' DJs and and all around dope human being, Dash Speaks. Dash has been instrumental in bringing "real djing" back to the NYC scene as a DJ and Music Director for several spots in NYC. He's also one of the founders of Future Old School, a super dope party held at Friends and Lovers on the last Saturday of the month. Don't let the George Clooney-esque vibe fool you...dude can throw down a mean set of classics and will make you think twice about asking for a request.
