Nothing seems to be able to stop this party from laying it down. As if those two bad-ass Brazilians, DJ True & Miller Cruz, don’t do enough on their own, they continuously bring in musicians and DJs that are guaranteed to rise to that next level with them, as none have disappointed thus far. The soulful sounds of Brazil have never been so sweet and the Sullivan Room has never been sexier.
This will surely be the case when producer/DJ/artist/label owner MKL takes to the decks to join ALMA for a night of ‘all things tropical’. The international flare of MKL stems from his birthplace of Belize and his upbringing in New York City. With over 20 years of spinning under his belt, he has graced the decks both as a resident and guest DJ at many of NYC’s top venues including: Nell’s, Body & Soul, Joe’s Pub, APT, Cielo, Giant Step, Love and Central Park’s Summer Stage to name a few.
MKL regularly tours Russia, Turkey, Japan, Europe, Canada, Dominican Republic and all across the US. In 1998, the duo, “MKL Vs. Soy Sos” was formed and turned out several hits including “Skin” and “Slavery Days”, which can be heard on compilations like “Buddha Bar Vol. 1”, Fabric 12, South Port, Trip Do West & Phil Asher’s “Jazz in The House 2”. They both later formed “3 Generations Walking”, and their debut album introduced a unique sound blending Reggae, Blues, Creole, Dub, Electronica, Jazz, Samba, Soul and Deep House all into one. MKL's new releases can be heard on his record label Lion1music, which includes is latest album: "MKL presents Suits & Dashikis", a joint venture between Lion1music & R2 records.
Expect all of his roots to serve as extra helpings at this smorgasbord of always-good grooves. Joann Jimenez and Manchildblack will typically be on hand to keep them burners piping hot for y’all. So arrive early to start things off totally twisted on 2 for 1 drinks and stay late because you love the music, you love to dance and most of all, you LOVE the ALMA sound of BRAZIL!
