It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we invite you to come celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our LOFT party and my 29th birthday on Friday June 12th, 2009 at the Sullivan Room. As you know very well, LOFT is one of the only parties left in the city that prides itself on focusing on the groovy, fun, and jacking side of house music…and we wouldn’t have it any other way!
To make things even better, we have a delectable treat planned for this very special evening. Joining our label residents for an exclusive Friday night sonic excursion is none other than the legendary Chicago-based Johnny Fiasco. One of the founding fathers of house music, Fiasco has been a powerfully influential presence in the scene since the very beginnings of the house music movement– and even though we have been playing for 10 years and producing for the last 4, our accomplishments pale in comparison to the deep love for house music that he exudes in all of his work.
Johnny really needs no introduction. A house music legend, he has inspired DJ’s all over the world through his countless rock-solid, innovative DJ sets and productions. But as they say…
Legends are made of dreams… In Johnny Fiasco’s case, he is a legend whose ever-evolving house music insight promises to be enduring—and for many, that’s a dream come true. The Chicago-born native was fortunate to have the Windy City as a backdrop at a fantastically seminal time for house music in the late ‘80s. Since then the pioneering Fiasco continues to DJ, produce and remix his one true love—house. “My category is house music. If someone asks me what I play: ‘It is house.’ It’s techy, it’s hard, it’s disco, it’s vocally, and it’s all of the above, really. The spectrum is pretty wide and that’s why I am so in love with house music.” Fiasco (born Juan Lopez) established his career as a DJ in Chicago, playing at Smart Bar alongside future all-stars like Mark Farina, and Derrick Carter
Today, Fiasco co-owns Viva! Recordings, is an impressive producer/remixer and logs countless frequent-flyer miles spinning at clubs and special events globally – including just about every major city in America. Remarkably, Fiasco’s vast remix catalogue includes pop icons such as Gloria Estefan, KD Lang and Donna Blakely. In 2003, one of his remixes was a #1 Billboard® charttopping dance floor rework of Justin Timberlake’s smash single “Cry Me A River.” Without a doubt a Fiasco record can always be found in record crates of DJs worldwide. Aside from his tour de force, the masterful and accomplished Fiasco continually reinvents himself through his timeless house music creations. Check out his discography here; a house music stalwart never rests!
We are truly honored to have him with us for our 1 year anniversary of LOFT and my 29th birthday. We sincerely hope you can join us in our celebration.
See you on the dance floor!
