Back another year for Absoult Art Bureau, this time with L.A. based commissioned artist, Ry Rocklen. The week long installation titled, Night Court is a pop-up bar, a performance venue, a sports arena and a showroom for Rocklen’s new line of furniture, “Trophy Modern”. Everything from the bar to the bleachers were all custom designed. I evened my own custom trophy DJ booth (I possibly the coolest & most creative booth I’ve had to date)

Chosen again as the resident DJ, I performed each night along with an eclectic roster of talent each night including, Ariel Pink, The Bushes & the spandex choreographed, balletic accompaniment of Bodies International. The Absolut cocktails are all inspired by sports terminology like the ‘Winning Spirit’: a shot of Absolut on the rocks. And then there’s ‘And One.’ The last night concluded with the Parisian pop-up Le Baron, making an unexpected appearance on our basketball court. Absolut knocked another Basel party out of the park… Thank you again for having me at the center of it all!

I had the pleasure of meeting artist Mickalene Thomas in 2012 during a private dinner held by Absolut Vodka during Art Basel in Miami. She enjoyed the vinyl records I was playing and made a connection instantly through music.
I later received an invite by her to perform at her gallery opening in Soho New York, which of course, I happily excepted. It was there when I got a true feel of her artistry. She is a true creative!
She then invited me to be part of her commissioned work in Basel, Switzerland sponsored by Absolut Basel. Mickalene recreated a 1970’s disco den in every detail from interior design to the cocktails served for the week, and I was lucky enough to be her choice of resident DJ amongst the elite invites and other invited guests to perform during the week long instillation, including Jasmine Kara & Solange Knowles.
