LA : The Lift

LeFtO Films: THE LIFT - LOS ANGELES, CA from Lefto on Vimeo.

Mad journey and lack of sleeeeeep dis week, after Sacramento we went to San Francisco, Lefto had a gig @ Eve's Lounge and i went to play Foxy (strictly house music !) in San Jose (90 min train ride, south bay area) which was cool, then back to San Fran b4 flying to Los Angeles. Ok. Let me say this... As a dj i'd say that It doesnt get much better then when ur able to play the music that u want in an open air space, with a great sound-system and lovely people who came here to dance and have a good time... 'til the early morning hours...
And thats exactly what The Lift party in LA was about friday nite !!! Our hosts (and friends!!) Wiseacre and Jeremy Sole (both dope djs !!) really created their party in a true spirit, being all about the vibes & the people... The legendary Marcus Wyatt brought the deep house orishas before Lefto & i played and maaaaaaan, we mad fun behind the decks ! Thanx to everyone who came and made it a very special event...!
Massive shouts and blessings to : Jeremy & Eric, Carolyn, Jonathan, Marcus da papa, Josh aka Dj Expo, Anthony Valadez (gr8 spot in Venice beach!), Rick & Cara, Eduardo & Mystie, Alex (tu sabes !!!), Cracka Dawn (the sexiest cali b-girl), Novena & Derek, Reggae Pops the one and only...

LeFtO Films: Sacramento Loves Bass from Lefto on Vimeo.

7.15 am just got back from da insaaaaaaane outdoor party in LA !!!! in a few hours back to SF for another Lift party with Jeremy Sole, Wiseacre, Marcus Wyatt & my brother Lefto of course, in da meantime here's da link for the Sacramento video, we had mad times @ the Press Club, such a gr8 crowd and lovely peeps, i even found some amazing 45's @ Records On Broadway there, ridiculous vinyl store... !! Big shout to Dan , Dj Whores crew, Jimmy, Carolyn, TIm from the UK (how random lol!!), Marshall for the dope brunch @ his Vegan Cafe & all the girls for dancin...!

NYC vibes

LeFtO Films: NYC ~ Worldwide Family US TOUR 2011 from Lefto on Vimeo.

Aaaaaaaah its so good to be back in da US !!!!!! Was a good gig wid Lefto @ Cielo (best sound system in town), gr8 set by Wiseacre too & the place was packed... Not the friendliest crowd for a Turntables On The Hudson party (+ resident & brother Nickodemus was away) but we still had fun, thnx to the extended fam & friends who passed by :-) The meatpacking district has sooooo changed in da last 2-3 years its insane... Very 'posh' & 'jeans & shirt' type of style, which obviously doesnt make the parties better, especially when cats come to you and ask for some Madonna or Nicky Menage shhh but hey..!! Saturday was nuts as well, da party was @ the Plazza Hotel in Long Island City, basically one huge outdoor party and 2 other inside the buiding (with Djs Dhundee, Op Miller, Bobbito...), and rockin da sweaty basement was Stretch Armstrong (he killed it !!), even had time to dip in da pool outside, just perfect thing to do in them hooooot nites :-) Was kindly taken to the Bronx and its huuuuuuuge for real... This place feels like
i went back in time in a way... Totally authentic like in the Scorcese films and stuck in its own time... I'll be back there...
Was also honored to be taken to the legendary Lobster Pound in the Red Hook district (Brooklyn) and had truly the best eveeeeeeeer lobster roll in my liiiiiiife !!! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmh just thinkin about it makes me hungry ! !!!! Expensive ($15) but totally worth it...! Had nuff time to hook up wid a few friends while there and Monday was totalluy craaaaaaazy in Brooklyn, as for the Labor Day the Afro-Carribean community celebrates also a carnival for the whole 24 hours... Like @ the Notting Hill Carnival there's a parade, sound-systems all over (playin mainly Soca & Dancehall / Reggae) and milliiiiiiiions of peeps in the streets... Sadly they were a few shootings and deaths due to the madness this year... I didnt hang out too long as i've done it couple times in da past ...
Love to all my peeps in NY, Op Miller & Akila, Yesenia, Eric Wiseacre, Amon & Mona, Nickodemus, Tara Rose, Eric, Nicole from DC, Tamara, Mae, Jose, Jordana, Keila & co., Chris & Imani, my music brothers Jay Locke & Fred P, Scribe & Amir, Nat & Zara

Kazakhstan Thank You

Despite a long journey & wait @ the airport for our visas to get sorted, i wanna thanx Rustam Ospanoff for having us play in Almaty outdoors (the main Square was nuts !!) & indoors, few intense gigs but still fantastic times out there and many laughs & good times shared wid my fellow djs Seiji, Mad Mats from Sweden & Eddy Ramich from Croatia, food was ace, we stayed @ a great hotel (bless the SPA !!) , basically we all had a blast in Kazakhstan :-) Massive thanx as well to Alma, Darren and all the people who made the parties happened...

P.S (Im writing this from California, just remembered i didnt blog about Kazakhstan like i was supposed to when i got back...)

Just got back from La Havana (via Madrid for a gig, big up Lovemonk, K'Bonus, Barbara, Lefto & Frank) ... Of all the places that i've had the pleasure to discover, Cuba is probably my favorite... Its so uniiiiiiique !!!!! I went there with Gilles Peterson, Mala & Vince Vella to produce the next Havana Cultura album (to be released on Brownswood Rec. in autumn) and to record cuban musicians & singers including Roberto Fonseca & band, Aldeanos, Danay, Doble Filo, Changuito, Ostalgia & many more talented artists...
10 days of full on studio including a few days of discovery, interviews & photoshoots, and a even a craaaaaaazy dj gig where Mala & i played some dubstep, house & all things UK to a young mesmerised cuban crowd (they were hearing this music for the 1st time ever !!). Even the cops who came to shut down da party didnt do it & stayed to check it hahaha...
What a trip i tell ya !!! We were hosted by François from Havana Club who brought us to the best places to eat & coordinated our stay there. Tropical weather (Caribbeans) all the way ... The studio we used was also fabulous... Kinda like the big studios in Philadelphia, with big wooden rooms (you could easily put a full orchestra + strings in the main studio!!) and all analog gear, 70's microphones & big large mixing desks, i was in heaven !!! All recorded on 24 inch tapes too ! Heeeeeaven for sound hahaha :-)
Despite the intense recording schedule i still managed to check out a bit of the town and ooooh my days, all these old cars from the 50's & 60's everywhere !!! You dont see that nowhere else !! There's hardly any internet in Cuba and if you have it, its SUPA slow... And despite the friendly & peaceful atmosphere its still remains a dictature... Cubans can hardly travel outside the island (no boats on the horizon) , express fully their thoughts in arts or even have email access in an easy way... Poverty is kind of omnipresent (if you check out the 'barrios' , and not only in Havana Vieja) but peope are well educated ... Increeeeeeeeedible mix of skin colors that makes it a very beautiful nation (imho), and of course the women are gorgeous there hahaaa !! All in all an amazing experience and hopefully i'll be back to check even more places in Cuba. Cuba es la vida !! Viva Cuba !!! :-D

Massive props to : François & Alice, Gilles & Simon, Oreste, Rebecca, Ornell & Abdalla Studio crew, Edgaro, Jo-Ivan & all the djs, all the singers and musicians that i met, the lovely Eyleen (great guide !), Lea & Ricardo from the film crew, Youri Lenquette the bad ass photographer, the french journalists, Vince, Mala (world premiere LOL !!), all the people that inspired me there...

US Trip

Pheeeeeeeeew anotha 2 weeks spent mainly in planes hahahaaaa !!!! Just got back from the States, i'll try to break it down nice & shortly dis time ...

LA : Aaaaaaah what a tremeeeeeendous party that is The Lift !!!! Huuuuge warehouse space in Downtown LA with a super dope sound system it was another claaaaassic gathering, we stopped playin around 6 am so yeah, really good nite... I was guesting with Ron Trent who did a nice soulful set (throwing some afro & funk vibes in the mix), i went a bit more experimental wid some of the UK bass pressure but we dfntly had an open minded crowd there thanx to Jeremie Sole & Eric Wiseacre who have constantly bring good djs for the love of music . Massive thanx to Eduardo Castillo & Mistie, Eric, Jeremie + all The Lift crew, TP Carter, Hossein & all the friends i saw thru the nite.

SF : Few hours sleep then straight from the O hotel to LAX then landed in San Francisco a hour later, then hotel then dinner (OOOOOOH MY DAAAAAYS !!! BEST SUSHI in SF ????? HELL YEAH !!!! I tried Eel with chocolate sauce wich was absolutely mind blowing !!!) then straight to th Club, the legendary End Up... A real institution (i think its also one of the longuest running club there) with a great dancefloor, a wicked outdoor patio & a few spread areas with bars, lights & creatures of the night :-) i had mad fun behind the decks... What i love about this place is that it really draws people from every background at random late hours and every1 is mainly there to dance and to enjoy the sound. Was a deep sunday and all things house that session... Big ups to Carolyn Lotus, Dj Cali, Monica, Raheim & all Sunday Sessions crew.

NYC : Another club to club mission that one !!!! Straight from JFK to club Cielo after a 6 hours flight maaaaan i got there a bit late but hey what can you do ? Started my set around 11.30 ish while François was setting up, couple hours later the Deep Space 'papa' took over and again it was a honor to play there. Wasnt my best performance as i was still messed up from my lack of sleep and plane trips but surprisingly amazing feedback... I guess the people who come to this nite are also super open héhé ... Got time to hang out in NYC a bit (isnt spring the best season there??) and even got invited to check out that mad theatral performance called Sleep No More... (Interesting but confusing play...) . Then thursday was the new Found Love party with Cato, John Dill & Wiseacre @ the lovely Sapphire lil' club, all donations went to Direct Relief For Japan & was a really great atmosphere all nite, dancefloor hardly stopped :-)
Massive shouts to Nat & Busquelo family ladies, Triphina Wilson, Athena, Jay Locke, Op Miller, François & Erica, Eric, Amon, John, Cato, Nicky, Emma, Julija, Colin, Nickodemus (lets finish that tune !!!), Dan Dancer, Yotam and everybody i met & that came to the shows . T H A N K Y O U !!!!

San Juan (Puerto Rico) : Kinda my second home here in San Juan, been coming here for years and bwoooy its changing fast somehow !!! My brother Chuck Maurice runs his club Red Shield (also a restaurant with a top class menu) and brings the "Creme de la Creme" when it comes to electronic dance music, while getting the locals bands involved for live evenings too, cant have nuff praises for Chucky... Saturday nite was a random one, not too busy but always peeps on the dancefloor somehow... started @ 1.30 am and finished @ 6am on the dot... Didnt even feel my set was that long... We got the next few days to vibe in Chucky's lab & finally finish a nu tune (B-Side for the nxt single ???) so yeah, no time for the beach dis time !!
Props to Juan Mauricio Rojas, Rossy, the cooks & staff @ Red Shield, Manuel & every1 who came down saturday...

Miami : Ok im just gonna say 1 thing... I had the BEEEEEEEEEEEST Ceviche EVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEER in Miaaaaaaamiiiiii !!! Yep yep yep true... If you ever can make it check out CVI CHE 105 in Downtown Miami, its the real Peruvian deal... Had the most amaaaaazin lunch & the desserts were off the hooooooook as well !!!! SUPA THANX to my man Eric Paredes, Nadia (get better hun !!), Ramon (no mo' JetSki, only whips & whipes LOL !!!) & Shelly, Santiago & all Miami fam... Was a great stop before coming back 2 LDN...

Big Up Gent & Amsterdam !!

Last Friday in Gent was madness, 1500 peeps in 2 rooms with good sound-systems & 13 music performances in 1 nite , maaaaan the Democrazy crew & Lefto did an amazin job... I caught up a bit of Ghostpoet live, Kid Koala who smaaaaashed it to pieces with 3 turntables & only wax, playin rock/pop/funk/triphop/scratchin and doin solo of horns or guitar usin his vinyls, seriously this guy is a genius... Fatima kept it sexy upstairs, Grems kept it short but supa energetic (nuff reloads on his big tune), Frank & Alex delivered the good stuff on a tag-team work, Kode 9 & the Spaceape went deeeeeep (only caught the rehearsal tho as i was playin at the same time in the other room) , Tokimonsta also delivered nicely, mash-ups of classic & all sort of party tunes in da mix and everyone dancin', totally enjoyed Exile's performance on his MPC, propa skills propa grooves propa vibes in the place ! Then i jumped on around 2am, supa nice crowd and we went on dffrnt tempos all nite with Lefto joinin @ da end for a mad back to back, real open mindness was in the air that nite !! If you ever make it to Belgium make sure you pass by Gent as its also a beaaaaaautiful little town with plenty to visit and a strong medieval architecture, the 10 Days Off in july are crazy too... Check it !
Saturday took the train to Amsterdam via Antwerp (even took time to visit my bro K'Bonus & Elizabeth for the best pastramy sandwich in town as trains were delayed) and kinda arrived late which made me miss my slot on Phil Horneman's (Wicked Jazz Sounds) show on national radio, dnftly nxt time 4 sho' (his nite on sunday @ the Sugar Factory was bangin' tho, best sunday nite in Dam & goes until 6am...) .
Finally got to Canvas (in East) the place i was performing on the nite, its a restaurant/club on the top of a 7 floor building, real cool space & a great terrace that gives an open view on the city. It was dfntly an eclectic evenin'. Before my set (i was the last) some electro-funk band played, a YouTube dj was spinnin in the smokin area (playin only Youtube videos hahaha), a jazz singer warmed up the room just after the delicious dinner & Eric The Man (one of the daddy's of the Amsterdam scene deejaywise) dropped some dope ass hiphop , funk & techno... When it was my turn i had a full room of smilin people & every1 got on the groove, felt like a warehouse party in a way... Despite the bouncer askin me to stop my last tune @ the end, i still played 2 more while the lights went on and every1 was singin :-) No attitude, just good vibes and dancin'... Couldnt ask for more could i ??
Even found a minute to check Trouw (one the most legendary clubs in Dam) which was literally accros the street from Canvas. 1 big long room club wid deep house & techno comin out from the Funktion One and concrete floor. Berlin style...
I spent the nxt 2 days mainly in the Canvas building coz its all artists/studios & designers in it... Few of my friends are in there so cldnt help but check the studios héhé ;-)
I also recommend you to see Amsterdam & its beautiful canals, supa chilled vibe & mixed population. Can also be the city of vice @ nite tho, dont get me wrong lol ... But there's dfntly loads goin on on the alternative side of things, and if you ride a bike you can go everywhere easily, as its the common transportation there...
Massive thanx and shouts to : Lefto & Fatou, Dennis & Democrazy crew, Voruit Balzaal & crew, Kode, Spaceape, Exile & Jonathan, Fatima, Alex P, Frank A, Grems, Kwak, Bruno, All @ Canvas, Jorrit, Pitto, Sander & Overlast, INT, Denis & Sherisa (top notch brazilian brunch sunday niiiiice 1), Kid Sublime, Phil WJSounds & crew, Sugar Factory crew, Mark & All @ Rush Hour, Ardvaarck & Steven De Peven aka Rednose Distrikt aka my brothers from another mutti . 1 luv
