DJ Fez is all grown up!

Marlon Estrada on the SV! 5.24.07

That’s right, y’all – our guest for this evening is Marlon Estrada, aka DJ Fez. Marlon’s returned from his year-long Mesopotamian Tour, and he’s ready to rock! They may not have record shops in Iraq (yet), but they’ve got Beatport and Traxsource!

Stacy Kidd - House 4 Life!This weekend’s got a lot going on, too. Marlon will be opening up for Chicago house legend Stacy Kidd(ChicagoSoundSource.com, Defected, MAW) at Lotus on Friday. After the heater last week at Lotus with the 3 Degrees tour, I’m ready to kick this weekend into full-on jackin’ overdrive. Who’s with me?

Akio and Cryptik @ Next Door Friday May 25Also on Friday, past SV guests and local house djs Akio and Cryptik will be giving out the “Love for Locals” at Next Door. Speaking of Cryptik, he’ll be doing the guest mix next week. I’m also hoping to get Akio back into the studio as well in the near future.

double joy disco @ thirtyninehotelAfter the success of their recent renovation (and let me tell you, it is amazing), thirtyninehotel is re-launching their Saturday night disco party with “Double Joy Disco” this Saturday, May 26. Special guest DJ Juan Nunez (Freestyle, LA) will be on the decks, along with Chittom and two of my new favorite local disco aficionados, Duck and Grady.

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday. You know Monday is a holiday? So there’s no excuse not to go strong for the entire weekend. In the day time there is Tiki Sessions at La Mariana. I’ve never been to La Mariana for a party before, but it’s the type of place that just is the party. Walking into La Mariana is like stepping into a movie – it’s surreal. I can only imagine what combining that with a bunch of loud dance music, drink specials, and the usual suspects will entail. Oh! and did I mention pupus?

Sam Seven @ Casa 5.27.07Since it is Memorial Day weekend, you know Casa is going to pull out all the stops. And for those of you who were wondering, yes, Casa is still going. Last week was exceptional with a bunch of new faces and 3Degrees djs Monna and Julius the Mad Thinker playing excellent tunes while our friend FLX got to be on the other side of the decks for a change. This week, vocalist Sam Seven will be doing his thing along with dj Larissa Gamarra. Sam Seven gets in to Hawaii on Friday, so he won’t be able to make it into the studio tonight – but we do plan to try to do a call in. Ruby will be on the show to talk about Sam and hopefully play some of his music. Once again, Casa is not at Bliss anymore – it’s at sound/house, formerly Detox, 1192 Alakea on the corner of Beretania and Alakea downtown.

Aloha!
