Hello New York City,
With Spring finally here, we have tons of exciting events this week, but first I would like to share exciting news, in conjunction with a sad news. We have been working with our beloved Brooklyn Night Bazaar since day one in 2011 and have been with them on their promotional programs ever since. After few venue changes, Brooklyn Night Bazaar finally found a good home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and flourished in the past 2 years being named “The Best Music Venue of 2014” from TimeOut NY. Unfortunately all the fun and free music that is BK Bazaar is coming to an end next week as another great venue bites the dust.  The silver lining is that this will NOT be the last you hear from the team of Brooklyn Night Bazaar – behold the launch of Riis Park Beach Bazaar! Ironically enough to open on the same day as the last Night Bazaar on Saturday May 23, 2015, Memorial Day Weekend.

From the Bazaar team:
“We are proud to announce that the National Park Service has granted Brooklyn Bazaar a five-year lease to develop programming, food and beverage services at Jacob Riis Park Beach beginning Memorial Day Weekend (Saturday, May 23) 2015. Just as the Brooklyn Night Bazaar is a new take on the traditional flea market, Riis Park Beach Bazaar will reimagine the beach experience on Jacob Riis Park’s historic and pristine waterfront. We look forward to hosting abundant activities, entertainment, shopping, food and drinks, which when combined with the sea and sun, will result in a New York beach experience unlike any other.”  Click HERE for a listing of all the dates of Riis Park Beach Bazaar events to plan your summer around.

RIIS CLOCKTOWER

This weekend at their new location is Defalco Presents with Breakdown Brass Band, Gedeon Luke and The People, Saun and Starr (CD Release Show), Ismael and the Radiant Select on Friday and T Presents A Place to Bury Strangers, Sleepies, Pill and Bambara on Saturday. With only 2 weeks left to Brooklyn Night Bazaar, the next two weekends will be historical.

Bazaar 5.15-16.2015

This Friday is the return of Lola Star’s Dreamland Roller Disco presents Flashdance Skate Party at Lakeside! “Lola Star’s Dreamland Roller Disco parties will begin with a Flashdance themed party on May 15th and continue every Friday night! Costumes that embody the glitz and glam of the 1980’s are strongly encouraged at all Dreamland Roller Disco Parties.” Featuring DJ Momotaro, Miss Saturn’s hula hopping magic, costume contest, skate dance competition!! $18 includes admission and skate rentals, get advance tickets HERE before it sells out! To see all the upcoming Dreamland Roller Disco dates and themes, check out http://lakesidebrooklyn.com/dreamland/ !

The Freedom Party – 90’s Jam

Flat-tops. Overalls. Coogi sweaters. Lugz, Skidz, Jncos, Starter jackets, Skidz (!!!!), Polo Sport, Karl Kani, Tommy Hill, Nautica, ski goggles, flanel shirts, Doc Martins, Timbs, scrunchies, shell necklaces, crystal necklaces, Umbros, Tevas…The 90s was such a CRAZY era of style.

And the music?

Maaan…The music of the 90s is close to EVERYONE’s heart. The “Golden Era” of hip-hop took over!! Who doesn’t have a Mobb Deep or a Nas or a Black Moon joint at the top of their all-time rap list? Souls of Mischief? T.R.O.Y.? Wu-Tang? Tribe Called Quest?!? New Jack?!? And who out there hasn’t at one point or another worshipped Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Radiohead, Metallica, Soundgarden, Oasis…Do I need to go on? I haven’t even got to the underground rock scenes yet.

And speaking of the underground…THE HOUSE MUSIC?!?! The only place for house music WAS the underground. It was not yet a worldwide phenomenon. It wasn’t watered down by cheesy synths and obvious progressions. People were really dancing, with the lower halves of their bodies, real footwork, not this masculine fist-pump crap! Classic, deep dance tracks were redefining dance floors wayyy before hitting the Top 40. “Beautiful People,” “Follow Me,” “Gypsy Woman,” “Luv Dancin,” Armand van Helden’s “Flowerz,” the Strictly Rhythm label, those Body & Soul CDs, I mean…I’m barely scraping the surface here!

And what about the city? NYC in the 90s? The parties? The raves? C’mon. And the movies?! You own them. You watch them. You LOVE them.

The 90s were incredible. So we’re paying tribute.

THE FREEDOM PARTY 90s JAM!!!!!!!!!
(This will probably be annual, this will most definitely be packed.)

DRESS ACCORDINGLY. (I’m talkin’ Gumby cuts, Cross Colours, door-knocker earrings, those big knuckle rings which yo name on it, jump suits…ALL THAT.)

THE BEST DRESSED GETS $99 + FREE BOTTLE SERVICE FOR YOUR PEEPS.
(The winner will be announced by 1AM.)

ALL 90S MUSIC ALL NIGHT LONG!!!!!

Hosted by Savior Elmundo and special guest KILLAKEDA!

THIS WILL BE RIDICULOUS FUN!!!!!!!!!!!

Music by FREEDOM DJs

DJ Herbert Holler, DJ Cosi & DJ Marc Smooth

Watch Freedom party at Le Poisson Rouge!

DJ Herbert Holler
“When I was little, I had problems sleeping. I wasn’t putting myself to bed ever, really. My parents tried everything in the book to get me out, but nothing worked. One night, my dad was at the bar doing his funny dance to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger,” and I asked him to pick me up. Less than five minutes later, I was out. Every night thereafter, he slung me over his shoulder just before bedtime and danced me to sleep—to Queen, Styx, Chicago, Meatloaf and lots and lots of Electric Light Orchestra.

ELO was our personal favorite. I ended up memorizing every word to every song off “Out of the Blue.” Anytime we were in his Honda Accord ’87, that 8-track went in. My mom had her input, too. Mostly Billy Joel, Tom Jones, maybe some Diana Ross. She tried singing me to sleep some nights, but “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” doesn’t really set the mood for deep slumber. She gave me my very first piece of vinyl—1966’s “The Best of the Beach Boys.” After the needle gave up trying to stick to that record, she handed me the soundtrack to “Hair.” When the day finally came for me to start learning the value of a dollar and buy my own music, the first tape I went out and purchased was…Run DMC’s “Raising Hell.”

How I got from 70s operatic rock, surf ditties, and Broadway musicals to hip-hop, I’ll never know. But that diversity has stuck with me through this day. Just when I pledge allegiance to some new rap artist, I’m a bloodthirsty digger searching for a new, synthetic electronic sound I heard on satellite radio or on somebody’s blog. And then I’m back frantically Googling a soul or disco sample I recognized from an old tune, or putting the finishing touches on a Dubstep mix I took way too much time obsessing over, or re-organizing my playlists so I know the difference between bounce, trap and an old dirty-South anthem.

The question of how I ended up spending half my waking hours in a nightclub is easy: I practically grew up in one. Again, my father’s to blame. He used to be the Food & Beverage Manager at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, NJ, my hometown. I clocked in more hours at that place than some of the people on payroll. And this was the 80s, mind you, when the casino strip was as glamorous as ever: fur coats, pearl necklaces, big Cadillacs and Liberace (who I saw live…many times). The lights, the sounds, the electricity in the air, even the smells…these things never left.

Nor has my penchant for making people smile. In grade school I brought class clown to a new level. It cost me my grades, and also led to a few suspensions. But there was nothing I enjoyed more than leaving my classmates in stitches. Sometimes, even the teacher had to take a second to regain composure. I thought maybe I’d make a good Psychologist, helping people smile, so I went Premed at NYU, till I realized the night before classes started that I’d have to sit still and study a lot. (Hence the B.A..) Naturally, I tried my hand at comedy, but I couldn’t afford to be broke, and I was already getting gigs and discovering my knack for making dance floors pop. So, it was settled. I was to be a professional DJ.

Today, my career is in its 11 about every lounge, bar and dance club from Wall Street to 125 with a growing list of high-profile clients and world-renown artists, have held residences and guest spots across the globe, and claim ownership of the longest running weekly Friday-night party in NYC history: The Freedom Dance Party. After years of hard work, dedication and professionalism, my name and reputation as a DJ in the music and entertainment industry precedes itself. And though I don’t get to play nearly as much ELO at the gigs as I’d like to, and 8-track tapes (and Liberace) are long gone, my love for the music, the night, and for making people smile are still here.” – Herbert Holler

DJ Cosi
Cosi gets down not just for the funk of it, but for the love of it. He spins music like no other DJ on the planet and that is why New York is proud to claim him as one of its own. He spins because nothing else is quite as satisfying. “I play a mix of 70 & 80s R&B classics, funk, 80’s pop, hip-hop, reggae, afro-beat and house music,” Cosi explains. “I have a knack for knowing what people want to hear from just reading the crowd. When I play it, they dance. That’s the best feeling.” The feeling continues, even into his 15th year of spinning, as one of the few DJs who has truly mastered his art. He seamlessly blends several, if not all, of these genres throughout the evening, flawlessly moving the minds and bodies of those in the audience, making him one of the most sought-after DJs in New York City. If you’ve been to one of the myriad parties where Cosi has played, you’d know this experience first hand. Quite simply, his talent touches your soul. Tastemakers at Nike, The Gap, Brooks Brothers, MOMA, Hugo Boss, Timberland, Vibe Magazine, Phat Farm, The Chris Rock Show, Pepsi, The Magic Johnson Foundation, Enyce, Yves Saint Laurent, The National Basketball Players’ Association, The Fader Magazine, the Hudson Hotel, the W Hotel and many others have experienced this first-hand. He has held weekly’s at nightclubs such as Nell’s, Cheetah, Justin’s, APT, Lotus, NV, Float, Metronome, Discotheque, Joe’s Pub, Martinez Gallery, Mission, BLVD, and Café Deville (just to mention a few). All have hired Cosi to set the mood and create the energy for the night. He has created the perfect vibe for parties in a number of cities throughout the U.S. (from New York to Las Vegas to Puerto Rico) and internationally (Mexico, Bahamas, Anguilla to name a few). Cosi has even spun for former President Bill Clinton in the Hamptons! Here’s your chance to dance your way out of your constrictions.
