Oh my god, I'm so excited for this Saturday! As we do every year, the Botofogo Social Club is doing it up big for carnaval, this time we'll be at the awesome Casa Alto Vidigal, high on top of the hill. The views are breathtaking and you know the beats will be top shelf! Along with BSC residents Doug Gray, Mike Frugaletti, Jan Roldanus, Dementia and myself; we will be joined on the decks but the lovely Vivi Seixas! The party starts to roll at 6pm so come early for the sunset and a bit of bbq action. We'll keep the grooves pumping until the sun comes up the next day so get some rest while you still can.
Confirm your presence on facebook and get R$10 off admission!
How to arrive: take a van to the entrance to Vidigal on Avenida Niemeyer and walk up to the moto taxi stand to the left. Take a moto taxi to Casa Alto Vidigal in the Arvrão area located on top of the hill.

Personally, I'd rather stay out of the whole Valentines Day debate. If you choose to celebrate, fine. If you are single and bitter, I get it. If you think the whole thing has been co-opted by the capitalist forces to sell more chocolate and shiny things, I understand that too. Either way, I think we should have more love in our lives every day of the year and these mixes are all about the L-O-V-E. So if your are looking for something to set the mood this evening or just enjoy listening to quality music with a message of love, here are two episodes of Deep & Dusted that I recorded for past Valentine's Day specials. I also did an exclusive Valentine's Day set for The Downlow Radio fan page on facebook that should be up some time later today but you'll have to head over there and click 'like' before you can download it. [edit: it's up now! just head to their fan page, click like and then click the download link that will be revealed.]
Last week was so nice, we decided to do it twice! If you are in Rio, come on out tonight for some post-praia drinks at Mekong Bar in Leblon. The night is coming! / A noite vai chegar!
