Line-up /Anthony Parasole (Deconstruct, Underground Quality, House-n-Home | Brooklyn), Unjust (Schematic | Miami), Bethany Benzur (Kiss & Tell | Brooklyn) Seze & Deanna - Hostesses
Kiss & Tell hostess Seze first heard freestyle and house music growing up in New York City in the early 90s. She was exposed to most of the popular songs on the radio and at these awkward Catholic high school dances. Usually her all-girls high school would be invited to the gym of an all-boys school. The parties were a pathetic yet hilarious, and served as a great introduction to the music.
As a throwback to these high school dances, the ladies of Kiss & Tell are hosting an after school freestyle party to help you help you get to know your peers. This is a back to school social you don't want to miss! Our DJs promise to make your shake your booty to electro, freestyle, breakbreaks, roller disco, Latin jams, lots of drum machines and plenty of cheesy broken heart lyrics.
Our guest DJs represent New York and Miami, covering the full spectrum of the freestyle genre. Brooklyn born and raised Anthony Parasole, will be spinning freestyle and electro records, may of which he bought when they originally came out in his teens. Miami's own Unjust will join Parasole on the decks. Unjust (aka Ivy Feraco) comes from South Florida, land of palm trees and sunshine, where her musical taste was influenced by freestyle, bass, Miami-grown idm, and techno. Years ago she was a resident DJ at The Bunker.
And Kiss & Tell resident disco diva Bethany Benzur will be there to play her rare Freestyle gems.
Optional dress code: Anything Neon, Acid Wash Jeans, Catholic School Uniforms, Bridge and Tunnel, Guidos, Big Hair, Prints and Track suits, Saved by The Bell.
