Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani... A nod to the land of guns, cars and sitars in this special, Bollywood-happy edition of international ass-shakin'. Nakkadwale (and udhaarwale) DISCO!

Ballo... doppio!

Sat, Jun 24 & 25, 2011

Wait, wha wha? Did you say doppio doppio? Yep, you heard it right. We missed it so much, we did it twice -
yours truly headlined on Fri Jun 24, and Giancarlo on Sat Jun 25. Double happiness of intercontinental ass-shakin'.

Yes, the house did jump. And the sun did rise, unwillingly. Check it out.

Giancarlo and I back at Diva - older and hipper, but not necessarily wiser. Take off those fancy fall jackets, and dance to some hot new tunes!

FdS - Otoño

Mas sonido duro, this time back at Diva. The vallenato band rocked an acoustic set for a birthday girl who turned 25 (wink, wink)... and the hips rocked to the beats for the rest of the night! Unfortunately, I forgot to record past the band's set at midnight... so here's the link to the pre-midnight set!

El sonido duro del Moreno shook the huge dancefloor at La Vie, and the hookahs were sure fancy. No recorded set on this one...

Another pumping night at Diva... the Giancarlo/Mani team is beginning to really find its groove!

FdS - Primavera

Apr 24, 2010

El Moreno vino y enseñó a los Colombianos y otros cómo vacilar... some good man from the crowd even brought me a shot of aguardiente. Good times - all of latin NYC was in the house. Pics, live sets and link to the Facebook group ... yenjoy!

Beautiful people getting down and dirty to Carnaval sounds, fresh from my trip to Salvador... and of course, other intercontinental obscurities! This groove's getting deeper... check it out.

Ballo's Winter 2009 installment. A mad full house and some technical difficulties aside, there was tons of intercontinental ass-shakin'. Alas, no set recording.

My first gig, with DJ Giancarlo. Packed house, shaking vibe! The sets are here... watch for the frequent "2 for 1 tequila shots" calls by the house manager. Classy.
