In September of ’99, DJ E-Love produced a Stevie Wonder tribute party at Baby Jupiter and invited DJ Spinna and Bobbito a.k.a. DJ Cucumberslice to spin. Spinna and Bobito had known each other for years but had never spun together. Their mutual love and respect for Stevie Wonder, as well as their extensive knowledge of his catalogue of music, provided for instant chemistry and the party exploded. Almost two years later, Keita of Keistar Productions stepped in to produce the tribute and the night was named ‘Wonderfull’. It fittingly fell on the weekend of Stevie Wonder’s birthday – May 13. Since then ot has become an annual affair adn the most talked about party in New York in years. Keita, Spinna, and Bobbito have even taken ‘Wonderfull’ on the road, having done it in Amsterdam and with scheduled upcoming dates in London and Tokyo.

After various bootlegs, white labels and shady dealings, Harmless records brings forth some of the finest tracks from this legendary night where Stevie is the catalyst for a night of inspirational music. The Wonder Of Stevie gives you the chance to see how Stevie inspired great artists around him at the time (try getting a compliment from a friend!) The covers on this album are, believe it or not, better than the originals – one listen and you’ll be hooked.
