Last week I hit up DJ/Promoter Jasefrmoutrspace to ask him a few questions about his upcoming party on Saturday, futurejams & who does his always awesome flyers that I see around. His interview is below…
♥How did Saturdays VS. party come about?
It started a month back after my trip to NY. I was catching up with my friend Jacques Renault after seeing both him and Justin play. After the party the three of us were talking about The Chase and Justin asked me when I was going to bring him out. I’ve worked with Justin briefly before when I brought out Jacques. In addition to NY, I’ve also seen Justin play in LA and have heard a few of his mixes, which I really like. I thought that it would be great to have him play The Chase, and next thing you know, I’m back in LA planning the party.
So to make the party complete, since I had two rooms, I wanted to have Blackdisco host the upstairs. I’m a big fan of the Blackdisco parties and I’ve been thinking of working with Kevin from Blackdisco for a while. So I thought that this would be a good opportunity to work with some good friends and have a great party!
♥Who does the flyers/design for your nights?
One of my best friends, Jay. He’s a talented graphic designer and artist, who heads up the art direction for The Chase flyers. Sometimes we brainstorm on ideas, and I can always trust that he will take my abstract concepts to another level. He puts in a lot of time into the design of the flyers to give the people something fresh that you don’t always see these days. Jay does all my graphics, he’s great to work with, and I love his artistic expression.
This party was a special edition with Blackdisco. Kevin wanted to design the flyers, so we went with it, and the came out cool.
♥Any future parties you’re excited about?
I’m excited about all of them. I get to bring my dj friends from around the world to play for me and share their music with everyone out there.
And since you asked, up next, I have Brennan Green coming out to play a private birthday party for myself that I’m really looking forward to. Also, I’m excited to have the talented Woolfy play The Chase on July 4th, at The Mountain Bar.
Besides my monthly in Chinatown, I started a residency at the Avalon where I get the opportunity to feature some of my favorite djs. I have Jacques Renault down for early August, and some other big names in the works for the end of summer that I won’t say too much about now. There will be more info on my myspace page coming soon.
