Let's go Circo Loco!

On Sunday, November 20, I will play a 10-hour party headlined by DC-10's esteemed resident DJs Matthias Tanzmann and Davide Squillace.  These two have helped elevate the Ibiza nightclub's Circo Loco party to legendary status, as their global touring regime will attest.

Also on the bill is Karina of Zoo Project, Ibiza fame.

Big Thanks to Tamer Malki & Pepe Almora of WeNo Music for bringing this circus to Boston and inviting me to be a part of it!

Danny Howells returns to RISE

On Saturday, November 5, RISE welcomes Boston-favorite Danny Howells back to the booth at 306 Stuart St.  As usual, Danny will play all night on both floors.

I've been a huge fan on Danny's since my first marathon dance-session with him at Arc (formerly Vinyl) in NYC.  It's truly an honor to know that he has embraced RISE as his home in Boston.  This party will mark Danny's sixth 5+ hour set @ RISE.

Jump over to Danny's SoundCloud page and check out his new productions, some live sets, and even a few of his old mix CDs.

New Residency: Wednesday's @ Descent

This day has been a long time coming, and it's finally here - the grand opening of Descent, the new nightclub in Boston's W Hotel.

I will be begin my new residency on Wednesday, November 23, and every Wednesday there-after.

This spot is ultra swank, and I'll select music to mold the mood.  World beats, downtempo, nu-disco, and deep house will all be on the menu.  That said, I am not 100% sure what to expect from the crowd, so I'll show up ready to fluxuate between more vibey aesthetics and dance-inspiring zones.  Let's get nice.

Infected Mushroom: What a Trip

OK, let's get a few cliche's out on the table:

- There's no business like show business
- The show must go on

With this in mind, I have to say that last Saturday's party at RISE with Infected Mushroom was one of the craziest RISE has ever seen (and that I've ever thrown).  We were packed from midnight to 6am with super-fans who were oozing with excitement, anticipation, and appreciation over this rare stateside after-hours DJ set from their favorite group.  The show went off without a hitch, and was a huge success by all accounts.  

Booking acts like Infected Mushroom is great because they bring a special energy with them wherever they go.  It's like every fan on the dancefloor is having the absolute best night they have ever had, and they want every person around them to...

Boston, welcome Robert Babicz

It is my distinct pleasure to bring one of my all-time favorite artists to RISE for his Boston debut.  Hailing from Cologne, Germany, Robert Babicz is a studio wizard with a penchant for shuffly grooves, emotive melodies, lush pads, and gritty 303s.  I've been a fan of his for ages, and am honored to be sharing the DJ booth with him.
