The Celebrity Status Boat Ride

As Synco Powers, Vlad Calixte (aka Haitian V.), and I walked up to Pier 40 I thought to myself, “this crowd can’t be for one boat ride!”  However, to my amazement, all of those people were there for DJ Stakz “Celebrity Status Bday Bash Boat Ride”.  Try saying that ten times fast.  DJ Stakz‘ annual boat ride did not disappoint.  Not only did it not disappoint, it was the best boat ride of the summer so far.  The event was promoted by Team HKNY and Hi-Profyle Entertainment.  In case you didn’t know, HKNY and Hi-Profyle are at the forefront of Haitian-American events in the New York area.  They have sold out venues such as Club Amazura, the Hammerstein Ballroom, and countless other venues throughout the area.  So DJ Stakz’ birthday event was no different.

As the boat left the dock a little after 2am you could feel the anticipation throughout the vessel.  There were two sound systems set up on the three level boat.  On the lowest level there were DJs playing strictly Kompa and Zouk.  On the third level there was a mixture of R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae, Soca, and Kompa.  The variety was amazing.  As DJ Stakz proclaimed later in the night, this was truly “an international boat ride.”  I spent most of my time on the third level.  The night started off with Ontrack Disco playing R&B to warm up the many ladies on board.  As the drinks were flowing and the crowd loosened up, Ontrack Disco transitioned into late 80’s Lover’s Rock reggae.  Artists such as Papa San, Shabba Ranks, and Beres Hammond were helping to build up the vibe.  As the energy built, SNL Boyz Synco and Ontrack went into a vibrant soca set.  The party had officially gotten on its way.

Ontrack Disco & Synco Powers warming up the crowd

Next up was the birthday boy himself, DJ Stakz.  I must say that Stakz definitely knew exactly how to control the crowd.  He played a Kompa set that turned the boat upside down.  The crowd seemed to sing out throughout the entire set.  Haiti pride was definitely overflowing on the Hudson River.  Every time DJ Stakz solicited for a response from the crowd they responded with  great exuberance.  It was truly a sight to see.  As DJ Stakz’ set was reaching its end, Hot 97’s Mr. Cee was preparing to come in next.  At this point I leaned over to Ontrack and said “I don’t know how Cee is going to follow that set.”  Ontrack simply replied with one word, “watch.”  I didn’t expect to see what happened next.  DJ Stakz introduced Mr. Cee and stayed on the microphone.  Mr. Cee went into a Kompa set that had the crowd in an even more intense frenzy!  After the incredible Kompa set, Mr. Cee went into a machine gun paced Hip Hop set that would not let the crowd rest for a second.  At this point I forgot about anything outside of that boat.  I didn’t think about a drink, a seat, a bathroom break, only vibes.

I was surprised when the boat arrived at the dock.  I lost track of time and I could tell that my sentiment was shared by many on the boat.  Hi-Profyle and Team HKNY are set to overload Times Square on August 27th with “Kompa Rehab vs Zouk Therapy 2: The Broadway Edition”.

 

Oh What a Wednesday Night

Stacked @ Stay Ultra Lounge

After the N.E.R.D. concert at Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday my associate Jay White and I decided to go into Manhattan to check out DJ Jon Oliver & Mr. Vega at Stay on East Houston.  It was my first time in the lounge, and I was impressed.  It was a great atmosphere, but nothing beat the music.  When we walked in some old school Hip Hop was being played.  The mixing was flawless.  Before I even knew it we were into a totally different genre, but it was seem-less.  I especially liked the remixes of vocals from various genres to a funky upbeat dance-style of rhythm.  I know that description may seem vague, but that is the only way I can describe it.  Music nowadays is very eclectic, but I digress.  DJ Jon Oliver gave us a tour of the lounge and downstairs, where there is a secret lounge (shhh…don’t say I told you).  Overall Stay is definitely a good place to take someone to relax and maybe bust a move or two.

After Stay we went around the corner to Ella on Avenue A.  I was very impressed by the decor inside of Ella.  I couldn’t get pictures, but please visit the site to see exactly how it looks.  Let me talk to the fellas for a minutes.  Gentlemen, this is the type of spot that you take a female that you’re trying to impress.  The flip side of that is, drums please, there are already beautiful people hanging out.  So you can decide whether or not you want to “bring sand to the beach”.  We made our way downstairs where the real party was jumping off.  The music was great.  It was electronic mixed in with a little funk.  I was going once the DJ got into his Michael Jackson set!  Two thumbs up from me.

The next, and final, spot for the night was Apotheke.  What can I say about this establishment?  It is an aesthetically pleasing place to be.  You can go to their site and see for yourself what Apotheke is about; I do not want to do it any injustice.  Anyone who knows me knows that I like to partake in adult beverages from time to time.  Apotheke is more than a bar.  It is a place where the bartenders are mixologists.  That title is not a joke.  I have gone there many times and it has never disappointed.  If you want to drink, you can drink.  If you want to dance, you can dance.  However, this spot is, by all accounts, exclusive.  So do not be surprised if you finally figure out exactly where this spot is and you get to the door and they tell you that it doesn’t exist.  If I were to say that this spot was for NYC’s elite, I would be saying too much.  However, I would suggest that you look at the site, see if its for you, and make a valiant effort to go.  Real talk!

Drake Shows NYC Love

Preparing for the Album Release at Alife

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few years, you should know that there is a new star on the rise.  That star is Drake.  Regardless of how you feel about his rhymes, flow, singing or appearance, you have to admit that he’s at the top right now.  There is no doubt that Drake can pack an arena, but on Monday evening a select few, 200 hundred people, were chosen to have an audience with Drake at Alife in lower Manhattan.  For Drake it was nostalgic to go back to the store where he use to hang and drink when he was trying to come up.  I have to say, for a Monday night, the event was a great way to kick off the week.  Those in attendance were able to be up close and personal with the Canadian star.  They were treated to audio from his new album “Thank Me Later” and an impromptu performance.  The names of those in attendance are too many to count, but there was definitely an electricity moving through the crowd.

I know that when it was time for Jay White, Brad Digital, and myself to leave for business, it was a reluctant move.  However, I was appreciative of the opportunity to usher in Drake’s album with him and a select few others.  Good luck Drake.
