Two parties not to miss this upcoming weekend, First JT Donaldson is one of my funky heroes and will be here for RicheBoOm's Boogie Basics release party at the Manhattan on Friday night; followed by the I Love Ibiza reunion with special guest Benji Candelario (and myself) on Saturday at the W.

BOOGIE BASICS is a Salt Lake City based deep house digital music label owned by my friend Riche BoOm. Making an entrance into the dance music scene over the past three months, the first three releases are currently available on all the major download sites and the next four are in the works. This coming weekend, Flavah Fridays will be hosting the new release party for the latest EP with a very special guest from Brooklyn NY (by way of Chicago) headlining the evening behind the turntables. Support local music talent!
Having taken an almost two year hiatus while gallivanting around the world -- from New York City to Miami, Ibiza to Mykonos, Goa to Koh Samui, and everywhere in between and beyond -- I LOVE IBIZA is back from retirement for one night only!
Withstanding all the changes the music scene has experienced these past few years, Benji Candelario has sustained his presence as one of the foremost DJ/Producer’s ever to grace the scene. Spanning all genres of club music, his signature sound captures the essence of the culturally vibrant New York club scene, distinguishing him as a quintessential DJ, and visionary producer/musician.
Developing an impeccable reputation internationally with some of biggest names in the industry, his productions have had more aliases than Smith and Jones, … Station Q, Bass Hit, The Element, Swing 52, New Hippie Movement, and Central Park. But whatever the name, Candelario’s fans can always tell who’s behind that trademark bass line driven, anthem praising, and dance floor dominating chugging beat that has been acclaimed timeless by many of his peers. Although a talented and successful producer, He is a DJ first and foremost who's in his element playing the hottest clubs; from the dark, underground spots to the big rooms in Ibiza, Greece, UK, France, Italy, Japan, Canada and the U.S. Without compromising his expansive knowledge and exquisite taste, his style remains fun and accessible as he takes his listeners with him on his musical journey and makes sure they stay with him through the whole party.
Come enjoy the sultry sounds of the international dance floor while lifting your spirit and energizing your soul on January 31 with BENJI CANDELARIO & JESSE WALKER
