One Step Beyond at the Hayden Planetarium is an awesome party everyone must experience if they are into the Cosmos and great music.

In addition there’s a great video on The Big Bang guests can watch upstairs, and afterward they can walk down and see the time-line of the Universe from the Big Bang to the modern era.

With 3 DJs on the turn tables, the night was full of awesome hits. DJ Misbehaviour, Joey Carvello, and Arthur Baker really bought the house down and the night felt like an old school New York City club experience.

At one point a huge break dancing circle developed and everyone was busting out out their best moves.

The fact that only records were used was great and made the night unique, setting it apart from other parties that rely heavily on laptops and software.

This One Step Beyond party was a little less crowded than the past ones, but that made the experience more enjoyable in some ways. The lines for drinks were shorter, and there was more room to dance and have a great time.

Check out the Next Party on June 10th with DJ sets by DâM-FunK, Waajeed, and Shawn Dub.
