Dance transforms. Dance reveals. Dance moves. Dance lives. Dance laughs. Dance remembers. Dance births. Dance grows. Dance ignites. Dance rises. Dance CELEBRATES.
Taking you on the journey for December's BLESSED party is the "DJ's DJ" and our very special guest - brother JAYVI VELASCO. Jayvi was one of Divinyl Echo's very first guests back in 1999 during our Funktion parties on Beale Street, SF. We still have vivid memories of Jayvi rockin' that packed floor on the outdoor patio! Hoooooweeee!!
Jayvi Velasco began mixing records in the early 1990s with 2 turntables, a mixer & 2 crates of mostly house records. Since then he has played at literally hundreds of events from California to Manila ranging from clubs, undergrounds, massive raves, boat parties, house parties, loft parties, and renegade beach parties. His smooth and seamless style of deep, sexy, jazzy, soulful, funky, Afro-Latin-tinged vocal House music has lead him to share billing with some of the global house heavyweights including: Timmy Regisford, Vikter Duplaix, Osunlade, Simbad, Ron Carroll, Mark Farina, Gene Farris, Master Kev, Mr.V, Alix Alvarez, Carlos Mena, David Harness, Halo, Patrick Wilson, Miguel Migs, Jay-J, Julius Papp, Ruben Mancias, Simon, Jeno, Garth, Tony, DJ Dan, and Soulstice. Underground househeads are craving the resurgence of the recently quieted but still reverberating "AfterAfterHours", the longest running soulful House afterhours party in San Francisco that Jayvi founded as both co-host and resident dj.
