LIFE: DJ-ing My First Coachella

Last time this week I was attending my very first Coachella. I never made it to the actual festival, but I DJed some pretty amazing parties surrounding the event! To be honest, the festival scene scares me. But who knows, maybe next year I’ll try to make it to the festival!

VIDEO: VA$HTIE KOLA CELEBRATES 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF HOUSEPARTY

As you may or may not know, earlier this month we celebrated the 1 year anniversary of my 1992 Party  at legendary Webster Hall. Every Thursday is what we call “House Party” with 4 massive floors of partying. My party (1992 the Party with classic 90s and 2000s jams) is hosted in the main room: the Marlin Ballroom. Other amazing DJs involved in House Party are Just Blaze & DJ Soul in the Grand Ballroom and Jasmine Solano in the Balcony Lounge. Join the party tonight and every Thursday! Below is a recap from our crazy 1 year anniversary from Homage Media Group.

THROWBACK: Chris Brown – “Run It”

Okay, this isn’t entirely a “throwback” considering that Chris Brown came on the scene with this debut hit in 2005. It is undoubtedly, still the jam and when I drop this at my parties…people go crazy!

LISTEN: Vashtie x Violette x Puma 90’s Fashion Show Mix by DJ Wonder

unnamed

When I did my Vashtie x Violette x Puma Runway Show in February, I was overwhelmed with all the details that go into a show. I didn’t take any of it lightly and in fact, found it also fulfilling. When it came to the soundtrack, I enlisted none other than the wonderful DJ WONDER. I knew he would understand my weirdo 90’s dream mix, from Big L to Björk…from The Toadies to Tricky. I knew if the live show was a hot mess, at least the music would be bomb. The cleaver En Vogue intro to my favorite Hole song outro. This mix is my favorite!!!

If you peeped the live show via Revolt TV, you can see how it turned out. If not, you can still peep it or just listen to this wonderful extended mix – thanks to DJ WONDER!
