DJ Chachi

His mash ups involve everything: Swedish House Mafia vs. David Guetta & Kid Cudi vs. Deadmau5… Drake vs. MSTRKRFT… Martin Solveig vs. Gorillaz vs. Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Like we said… open… and giving something up to everyone.

From private parties on the Island to a residency at the legendary Exit to Stereo, Home, Britney Spears’s birthday at Tenjune, you get the point. Now Chachi can claim residencies from LIV Miami to Pure Las Vegas. The man is everywhere!

With past events drawing the likes of Jay-Z, Paris Hilton and Justin Timberlake and profiles in Us Weekly, In Touch and The New York Post, one thing is clear… DJ Chachi has long transcended his status as “New York’s hottest DJ” into a national phenomenon. There’s a reason why hundreds of people line up at the club whenever Chachi comes through. Now it’s time to find out for yourself.

Show Preview

From: USA (NY)

Style: Tribal house laced with ridiculous drums

Famous Tracks: The Believe mix series

Best Known For: Being NY’s top resident-turned international star

A true product of Manhattan’s legendary electronic scene, he has spun at many of The Big Apple’s most legendary nightclubs, including Exit, Roxy and residencies first at Crobar and now Pacha. His high-energy sets are famous for their big drums and bigger builds.

With a career that has spanned over 15 years, Boris has come to represent everything that’s right about house music. His tenure at clubs across the country is matched only by legends such as DJ Dan, Danny Tenaglia and Junior Vasquez. His producing and engineering skills are the crème de la crème in any group of musicians.

Boris has worked with a who’s who of music industry mega stars including Janet Jackson, Missy Elliott, Jewel, Pink, Brandy, Usher, Brittney Spears, New Order, Boys to Men, 98 Degrees, Mya, Shania Twain, Salt-n-Peppa, Cindy Lauper, Jordan Knight and numerous others. With a list like that, there isn’t much more that needs to be said.

 

Bio

The rich heritage of New York nightlife is focused on the figure of the resident DJ: The homegrown jock that puts down roots in a single venue, bonds with its crowd, and explores the limits of a DJ set with his faithful. The DJs who flourish in this demanding environment go on to become folk heroes, not only in New York, but all over the world (see Larry Levan, Danny Tenaglia, Junior Vasquez).

DJ Boris started his ascension to these ranks in 2004, when the native of St. Petersburg, Russia took up residence at New York super club Crobar. It was the culmination of years of workhorse gigging at almost every club across the Big Apple. But it was more than that too: It was a movement that has shown no signs of fading.

Boris (birth name: Boris Inzhin) started moonlighting as a DJ while taking classes at the Institute Of Audio Research in New York. With a metronomic mixing ability and a penchant for expansive, groove-based power-house music, the jock quickly found work both in DJ and production booths, playing at clubs like Exit, and Roxy, and remixing artists like Janet Jackson, Jewel and Gloria Estefan. In 2002, his mix of Pink’s “Get This Party Started” hit No.1 on the Billboard Hot Club Play chart.

His relentless approach to bring his cult of followers the best sound and experience possible has taken his production to even greater heights. Powerhouse industry labels like *69 Records, and Stereo Productions have wasted no time in signing Boris projects to their labels. Dancefloor missiles like “Automatic,” “Everybody Tweakin’,” “Lights Go Out,” and Lisa Pure’s “Movin On” have been embraced by a culture of beat aficionados, in and out of the many clubs DJ Boris has grown to call home.

And if home is where your heart is then Boris must be endowed with a heart the size of North America. His movement has rewarded him with residencies in every major city. Now a regular on the city’s club circuit, the name of Boris started to become associated with unapologetically massive music: big drums, big riffs, huge build-ups and lots of energy. Propelled by the promise of a great party experience and by a growing affection for the approachable DJ and his humble manner, his crowd swelled. By the time Boris debuted at mega club Crobar in May 2004, his faithful numbered in the thousands, united under a spontaneously created banner: “Believe in Boris.” Boys stamped it on their T-shirts in masking tape, girls Sharpied it on their flesh, and eventually Crobar flashed it on their video screens: A battle cry for a clubber’s revolution.

While at Crobar, Boris set the 30,000-square-foot club’s attendance record (a swinging-from-the-rafters 5,400), released his first mixed compilation (aptly titled “Believe”), and started to gig regularly outside of NYC, in markets like Miami, and Las Vegas. In 2006, when it became apparent that Crobar would close, Boris uprooted and moved his crowd 20 blocks north to Pacha New York, the first North American branch of the fabled European club brand, without missing a beat. He is still a Pacha resident.

Boris’ faithful service to the clubbers of New York has been rewarded with two Club World Award “Best Resident DJ” nominations (one while at Crobar, and one while at Pacha), a DJ Times cover story, a top 5 finish in the national America’s Best DJ fan poll, and a new residency at super club Space in Miami. Add this to the already accomplished residencies he holds at Rise in Boston, Therapy in Rhode Island, as well as his regular appearances at Ruby Skye in San Francisco, 960 in Connecticut, Deko Lounge in New Jersey. He’s also become one of the reigning kings of Winter Music Conference week, throwing massive pool parties by day and after-hours marathons by night for thousands of fans. The spoils of success have not halted his enthusiastic work ethic either. His ongoing pursuit to creatively, and musically express himself to those who adore him, has no doubtedly outgrown our own country’s limited borders. With his global campaign as New York’s premiere DJ underway, believers can be found from all corners of the planet. Venezuala, Colombia, Marrakech, Barcelona, Madrid, Ibizia, London, Montreal, Mexico, and Toronto have all been blessed with his energetically extreme beat orchestration. Boris and his team are currently planning the release of his fourth mixed compilation, and a series of European, and South American dates to compliment his tremendous ability in the studio.

So world, New York wants to know: Are you ready to believe in Boris?

Here’s a good look at the week ahead DC nightlife for February 7th -  13th 2011. This new weekly guide will focus on is the parties that appeal to people like me who enjoy clubbing. The dude that ponies up to the bar at the Irish Pub every night probably doesn’t care if a world-class producer and DJ is spinning at Lima on a Thursday night. So I won’t really get into details about the local pub scene or try to get you fired up about drink specials at neighborhood dive bars. That just ain’t our thing. But what I will do is look into the world of DC Clubbing and pick out at least one party per night that will blow your mind…or at least has the components in place to make for a sick blowout. I wish I could give you details on a hot party for Monday night, but right now I think we’re all recovering from our additional Sunday stupor. So let’s get straight into our Tuesday and move forward from there…

Tuesday – February 8th Glow Appreciation Night at Barcode

Every Sunday Club Glow will post a status on facebook.com/clubglow asking who wants free drinks at Barcode. The first 50 people, ages 21 and up, to respond will receive a $40 bar tab at Barcode’s Tuesday evening event with Glow. In addition, the restaurant and lounge will offer a 3-course dinner menu for $30 from 8:00 – midnight as well as half-off bottles of wine. Now, I wasn’t very good at math, but this is probably one of the best deals in town and even cheaper than the standard Restaurant Week deals. And if you’re quick to respond on Facebook, you’ll have a great bar tab waiting for you to enjoy. Now add in the fact that Barcode is bringing in international touring DJ Pleasurekraft to provide music and you can see why I list this as the best party. The ingredients are all there. Great food, great drinks, great music, specials and great people. Tuesday nights have never been better in the District. Visit Barcodedc.com for more info.

Wednesday – February 9th Ewan Pearson at U Street Music Hall

The U Street club with the ridiculously awesome sound system presents one of the most respected and in-demand Techno/Tech House producers, Ewan Pearson this Wednesday evening with support from Jubilee and D$auce. Ewan Pearson has been making records for a living since 1998. His remixes for the likes of Depeche Mode and Chemical Brothers have made him one of dance music’s most respected producers. He’s programmed for Goldfrapp and Gwen Stefani and his production credits include Tracey Thorn’s acclaimed solo album ‘Out Of The Woods’ and The Rapture’s ‘Pieces of the People We Love’. The bio goes on and on but you get the point. If you love dance music, U Hall on Wednesday is your spot. Visit Ustreetmusichall.com for more info.

Thursday – February 10th John Dahlback & Albin Myers “Myback Tour” at Lima

Both DJs are from Sweden. Both spin house music. Both have carved out their own place in the Swedish dance music pecking order. And now both are on tour and hitting up the beautiful Lima Lounge on Thursday night for your listening enjoyment. Dahlback is known for his techy and yet melodic-sometimes disco- esque basslines-that has become famous for moving a dance floors to epic levels of energy and excitement. 2010 marked the release of his 2xCD ‘Mutants’ album (October) as well a recent remix for Benny Benassi (December). Mutants is also the name of his new label, an imprint on the infamous Defected Records. Myers is known for his music, personality, and yes, the Mohawk, and it’s something that’s caught the attention of dance music fans around the globe. Just check out some of his clips on YouTube. His energy in the booth is beyond words and an expression of music most don’t get to see up close. Seeing the two of them together is like watching a magician pull a rabbit from a hat while telling a hilarious joke and hooking you up with backstage passes at the same time. Epic partying will no doubt ensue. Visit ClubGlow.com for more info.

Friday – February 11th Absolute Addiction at Shadow Room

Shadow RoomI’ve got a secret to tell you. It’s about a private party that only the hottest people in the know can get into. Wanna hear about it? Sounds pretty cool eh? Well this is pretty much the concept that plays out every Friday at Shadow Room, the Foggy Bottom club that takes the VIP concept to a new level. Last week they had celebrity DJ Josh Madden in the house. The night before they hosted Jay Z’s tour DJ. In other words, you never know who might be behind the decks…but you know it will be one of the more famous mix masters in the business.

Saturday – February 12th George Acosta at FUR Nightclub

One thing that never changes in DC is you can always count on Club Glow to bring in one of the biggest names in dance music every Saturday night. Be it Armin, Guetta, Aoki, Benassi – the top DJs in the world always save a date for DC. And this Saturday continues the trend with Glow bringing in George Acosta, a global trance music powerhouse. George Acosta was the first artist ever booked at Glow. He continued to be Glow’s biggest draw for over 5 years, outselling the current giants. His impact on trance is unparalleled. Whether it’s progressive, melodic, uplifting, techy, fast, slow, it doesn’t matter. George has affected the career of every trance artist today. No one can argue with that. He defined the sound of South Beach. If you really want to be apart of the biggest party in DC, this is the ticket you want this week and every Saturday thereafter. Visit ClubGlow.com for more info.

Sunday – February 13th Day of Love at One Lounge

Red Skies Party and One Lounge are teaming up to bring you a pre-Valentine’s Day party at the Dupont Circle venue that satisfies any clubgoers deepest desires. It’s a night of great house music and love. Okay, so I know some don’t get into the whole Valentine’s Day idea. That’s fine. But you love something right? Even if it’s just the music, you can’t go wrong spending a Sunday night with some good old house music from DJs Agent Max, Dan O and Pryanikoff. And here’s the kicker… Red Skies is providing a “Love Box” where you can drop a note into the box for someone you love. It could be someone you’re already in a relationship with or someone you just dig and would like them to know. Red Skies promises to deliver your message to the intended person, even if they aren’t there. So who knows what could happen. But the idea and setting make for a perfect Sunday evening party to close out your weekend. Visit Redskiesparty.com for more info.

PS1

dj ps1 washington dcWith a more than respectable Autumn Top 10 on beatport.com, PS1 has moved into Winter 10/11 with enough heat to melt metal! The Moodswing 360 all-star is one of NY’s brightest stars behind the decks. His impressive resume includes events at Cain, 1Oak and Tenjune as well as being a favorite of Diddy. In fact, it seems as though the paparazzi can’t leave the guy alone.

Paris Hilton comes to his events, says hi on a red carpet in LA, and PS1 ends up front page news in all the celebrity gossip columns. Brittney Spears climbs into the booth and starts making out with him and… well, she does things like that anyway. A favorite of Lindsay Lohan and Mary-Kate Olsen, it’s clear that PS1 has quite the buzz going for him. Spinning since he was 12 and discovered at 16 by neighbor DJ Skribble, the NY fly would prefer all that attention be directed on the party itself. All he wants to do is get behind the decks, throw a rager and go home to his sneaker collection at the end of the day.

Check out the pics from the last time DJ PS1 played at Ultrabar!

soundcloud.com/davidberrie

Opening Set by DJ Spaz

Thursday, February 24 2011
Lima Lounge 1401 K St NW
Doors Open at 10pm, Ages 18+

Show Preview


From: USA (NY, NY)

Style: house

Best Known For: Spinning for the stars

The son of famous toy manufacturer Russell Berrie, David grew up with the opportunity to do anything he wanted… including nothing. He took piano and violin lessons early on, eventually landing at something a bit cooler, turntables.

Inspired by NY icons like Louie Vega, Danny T, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul; by 16 Berrie had honed his skills and was sneaking out of the house to spin at small clubs in Manhattan. From there it was cake.

Been There, Done That: Having performed events for Diddy, Giselle, GQ and Esquire, Berrie’s inner talent eventually came bursting out. With all that instrumental training and all that NY influence, it was only a matter of time before he traded the posh VIP scene for the infectious, let it all hang out world of electronic dance music.

He certainly has our signature!

 

Bio


David Berrie has played innumerable bold-face-name parties for the likes of Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Gisele Bundchen, and Pharrell Williams. He’s a staple at the most exclusive nightclubs around the world. Top promoters and music aficionados across the globe seek him out. It’s nice work if you can get it, but for David Berrie none of it truly matters.

“I know it sounds corny,” David Berrie says, “but what really matters to me is making great music—music that reaches people, music with integrity, music that makes people dance.” The unassuming 24-year old goes on to cite a constellation of luminary DJs who have inspired him early on: Carl Cox, Louie Vega, and Danny Tenaglia. Which begs the question, what gives this young, talented upstart the nerve to name-check such DJ royalty in conjunction with himself? Hard work and talent.

David Berrie wasn’t born with a silver slipmat on his 1200s. His mother, a Korean immigrant, and his father, the son of Bronx-based Russian immigrants, settled in Englewood, NJ. His dad was the marketing genius behind those ubiquitous Troll dolls. His parents made him study classical piano and violin years before he got his decks. He reached that milestone at the tender age of 13 with two Technics and a used Vestax mixer.

“My older sister originally turned me onto hip-hop,” David Berrie explains. “I got really into golden-era late-80s and early-90s Native Tongues stuff — A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Brand Nubian and other artists like KRS-One, EPMD, and Rakim.” His love of music and his enterprising ways found full expression in his thriving junior high school business making CD mixes for classmates. “It was my first experience curating music,” he says. “It was going great, until the principle called me into his office…”

As hip-hop in the late-90s became increasingly commercialized, David Berrie found refuge in the underground. “I started deeper and deeper into the dance scene,” he explains. “I started discovering DJs like Danny Krivit and Frankie Knuckles, and Larry Levan. I began loading up on classics from Fat Beats and Satellite Records.”

At 16, after endless hours spent in his basement, this self-taught DJ landed his first paying club gig in NYC from a handed over promo cd. At the time, David was sneaking out on buses to shuttle to his gigs. From then on David’s aspirations and masterful skills quickly took him from small rooms to the country’s most high-profile nightclubs including Tao Las Vegas, Webster Hall New York, and Liv Miami.

Soon he became the go-to DJ for international high-profile parties playing for luxury brands like GQ and Vogue and traveling to London, France, Italy, Spain, Mexico, and Croatia. Though he doesn’t like to talk about it, David’s style didn’t go unnoticed; US Weekly recently named him one of “The 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers.”

Most recently, David Berrie has been recording original tracks. President and CEO of dance music mega-label Ultra Records, only needed to hear one of David’s tracks to sign him. This summer single “Take a minute” is due for release in August 2010.

Martin Solveig: Thu 2/17 [Glow at Lima]

When we say Solveig plays on the biggest stages in the world, we don’t just mean massive festivals. Martin shot a music video at Roland Garros, site of the French Open. His guest cameos came from Bob Sinclar and the #3 and #12 tennis players in the world, Gael Monfils and Novak Djokovic! His smash hit ‘Hello’ w/ Dragonette is a favorite of everyone, regardless of what kind of music they like.
