I'm happy to announce a last minute booking for a party benefiting a very cool project! My good friend, dope dj and wicked graphic artist and illustrator, Coral Michelin, is raising funds to publish a book of 20 unique poster designs by some of Brasil's most interesting young artists. Each design in the Livro-Pôster Canção will relate to a certain song and each poster is detachable for framing or display.
I'll be joining the already illustrious line up of djs André Amaral, Preto Serra, Bernardo, Icaro dos Santos and Paul Medder tonight for a night filled with funky grooves and cool people. All this for the low admission price of R$15! Hope to see all of you there tonight for Boombox!
Mem de Sá, 126, Lapa, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

[from the website]The “Livro-Poster Canção” is a book that can turn into a series of posters. A book whose pages turn into 20 detachable posters in the generous size of 35 × 50 cm.
Each poster is an unreleased illustration, made jointly by two handpicked artists from a group of 20 wonderful people from the worlds of StreetArt, Illustration, Design and Visual Arts.
Check out who they are: Ana Escorse, André Amaral, Bruno Big, Carlos Bobi, Cláudio Gil, Coral Michelin, Estêvão Stêvz Vieira, Gabriela Irigoyen, João Lelo, João Sánchez, Márcio Bunys, Mariana Mansur, Maurício Planel, Pedro Themoteo, Rafo Castro, Tatiana Castro, Tuomas Saikkonen, Victor RocMed, Vivian França, Wesley Combone.
Each illustration is based on a song, whose melody, lyrics or cultural context relate to the proposed theme of each issue of the book. In this first edition the proposed theme is “Transgression”.
I'm happy to announce that the newest installment in the Deep & Dusted series is now available from London's, The Downlow Radio! Below is the text from their website:
"We have finally managed to locate Tee and pull him out of the debaucherous underworld of Rio de Janeiro long enough to deliver a new episode of Deep and Dusted and it is as nasty as the city it was recorded in! This episode is packed with the Disco, Boogie, Deep House and Funk you have come to love from our man in South America. On top of all this, we have some wicked exclusive edits from San Francisco family “Synthe Tigers” (Sergio and Alan Craig) and Pillowtalk, as well as three new ones from Tee himself (aka Sine Qua Non). Dig in and get dusted!"

The weekend is almost here...can you feel it? To help get you in the mood, I have a new mix for you all up on mixcloud. April 17, I had the honor of opening for Rio de Janeiro superstars, Orquestra Voadora, at my favorite place in the world to hear live music, Rio's legendary Circo Voador. Also on the bill were members of the Parisian brass band mafia, Dumb & Brass and Les Fines Polettes. This night marked a major chapter in my history as a dj in Rio de Janeiro and shit was all the way LIVE! Massive thanks to everyone who came out and supported!
In honor of the headliner's roots in New Orleans music, the set features loads of down and dirty NoLa funk. It doesn't stop there though. We also get dosed with some disco, soul, jazz, afrobeat, hip hop, latin grooves and even a touch of Washington DC style GoGo music! Enjoy and hope to see you all this Saturday for the 2 year anniversary of Botafogo Social Club!
