You have both Brazilian and American influences in your music - how do you think that distinguishes you as a DJ?
I think because it's a whole different culture and it's so accepted - Brazilian is so in fashion and in style; anything in Brazilian culture; Brazilian music, food, etc. I think bringing a little bit of that and mixing it in with everything I live and breathe in New York City makes a big different.
I heard you are going to be launching a Brazilian party series in December. Can you tell us about that?
It's something that I did this past December at a coffee shop with some friends. I was doing a party at The Darby and then I moved to Coffee Shop, but now we are in talks about doing something else Brazilian at Hotel Chantelle. We are shopping around for different ideas, but hopefully by the Fall we will have something solid together. I want to do something more classic Brazilian, like Bosa Nova and some newer stuff.
Warm weather breeds aspirations of greatness, especially when it remains throughout the week. When the climate decides to play nice, permit some friendly rays, and bathe the world in luscious warmth, the desire to seize such beauty is paramount. In lieu of the typical weekend decrescendo back towards the “work-week anticlimax," one must salvage opportunity by forcibly seizing the flighty reigns of adventure!
Like an oyster, the pearl of this city is ripe for the taking when the balmy sets in. Therefore, take a gander at the weekly party roundup, and keep the festivities raging throughout the week!
The Bunker Club, located in the Meatpacking District, home to NYC's hottest clubs, is an intimate, upscale lounge and dance club that brings out New York's finest. DJ Jacomino will be spinning hip-hop, house, and top 40 hits as you ring in 2012. This is one party that is sure to sell out.
It's the beginning of Fall and all your frequent summer favorites are becoming boring with repetition. No worries though, you can try something new with these fun, hip hotel bars. Who says you need to be a tourist to drink in some of the cities finest hotel bars and lounges? It's okay, we won't tell.
5. Rooftop Bar at Hudson Hotel- With the temperatures dropping, the for demand for nightlife will change as fast as you can say Fall. Since Labor Day passed weeks ago, white pants and barbeques are out of the question, but a quaint hidden rooftop bar isn't. Venture over to the private park of the Hudson Hotel. When you arrive you'll notice vines climbing up the side of the building, along with an eclectic collection of seating arrangements. Some in the form of old wicker couches and old iron thrones, fit to make all feel more than royal. Margaritas and mojitos are the specialty here, but to get the most BANG out of your dollar and the bottle, go for the pitcher of your favorite drink at $65.
LES Hotel Chantelle, vodka infused cupcakes, endless refills of HobNob Wine, and Charlotte Ronson; these are a few of our favorite things! And luckily for us, we got to experience all of them Monday night at the Charlotte Ronson Sephora Beauty Party!
Celebrating CR's collaboration with Sephora for her new Charlotte Ronson beauty collection, fashionistas from all over gathered on the rooftop of Hotel Chantelle for an amazing dinner followed by an even more amazing after party featuring the musical stylings of DJ Harley Viera-Newton. Some of the fabulous party goers included: Charlotte Ronson (duh), Charlotte's mom Anne Dexter-Jones, the social climbing wunderkind Genevieve Jones, Nylon's Accessories Director Dani Stahl, DJ Mia Moretti, filmmaker Sarah Sophie Flicker, singer/ model Sky Ferreira, Venezuelan social butterfly Fabiola Beracasa, actress/ DJ Becka Diamond, and singer/ songwriter Shooter Jennings; way too many fabulous people to name them all! Charlotte's sister Samantha Ronson and her long-time pal Nicole Richie were unable to make the event due to travel complications that ensued from Hurrican Irene.
