What had been a lounge-y hangout just an hour before had turned into a full-fledged dance battle. A circle of breakdancers is usually a DJ’s worst enemy, but here it felt right. DJ Spinna was on the decks now, playing a mix of jazz and funky house while Medina and Akalepse melded in with their party-goers. The entire scene had a house-party feel, including a couple doing an elaborate salsa routine, a group of girls dancing on benches, and some endearingly uncoordinated folk who seemed embarrassed to admit they had “taken the L into the city.”
