PRIDE: DJ Escape
Saturday June 09, 2012
2nd Saturday is RISE's monthly gay party, dropping - you guessed it - the second Saturday of every month in 2012!
RISE celebrates GAY PRIDE 2012 with one of Boston's most beloved guest artists - DJ Escape! RISE resident Mike Swells take it deep and heady all night in the lounge.
DJ, remixer, and producer DJ Escape (aka Jeff Jonas) began spinning turntables in the early '90s, inspired by the growing popularity of the hip-hop scene. The opportunity to start playing it came after teaming up with DJ Skribble. However, the newcomer turned into house music after meeting Junior Vasquez during a performance at New York's Palladium.
Since those early days, DJ Escape has become a major player on the Gay Circuit. He's remixes all of the biggest stars, from Beyonce to Kelly Rowland to Deborah Cox. He's played all of the biggest parties. His name is synonymous with high energy, late night sessions of sound & sweat. He's the perfect candidate to keep 2nd Saturday's February rocking all night long.
In the lounge, Boston-based Ryan Ruel takes the room to the deeper depths of the electronic music experience. He's a technical wizard in the aural & visual arts, so be sure to head downstairs to hang on the couches for a bit.
