We are currently experiencing a time in NYC where great music is once again becoming the focus of gay nightlife events and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Over the past decade, as pop music took over the majority of the gay scene, some of the best talent in the city either adapted their musical approach to nightlife in order to survive or simply moved away from the Big Apple. One person who took the latter path is NYC-born Dylan Drazen, and it’s about time to bring this incredible DJ back to his hometown for an afternoon of beautiful disco and house music at Paradisco. Make sure to RSVP on our event page and invite your favorite music-loving friends.
Originally from Manhattan and later raised on Long Island, Drazen discovered his love for music at an early age as he quickly immersed himself into the R&B and rap world, only to transition to disco, house and deep house in the 90′s. Even though he established his career over the years as a renowned techno DJ, with regular gigs in Spain, Japan and several countries in South America, Drazen’s heart still lives in soulful, uplifting house music. While in NYC, Drazen played at several legendary clubs, including Limelight, Tunnel, Twilo, Vinyl and Love. His masterfully curated Barbecue mixtape series showcases his tasteful New York-inspired house aesthetic at its best, and although it was released over 10 years ago, it never fails to make us feel happy and in the mood for dancing.
Drazen currently lives in Florida and has recently made his Miami debut at Spazio, where he has had the opportunity to showcase his more modern house sound. Expect a brand new atmosphere at Paradisco as Dylan Drazen spins his special selection of current tracks and all-time house classics for an afternoon of dancing under the sun.
