Last year some of the awesome Respect crew came from Paris to New York to organize Été d'Amour...a great weekly dance party that happened Thursday nights at Santos (plus a few special events here & there). The line-ups were great and they were some of the funnest parties I went to all summer (which included Pharrell (Fluo Kids), 33Hz, and Alan Braxe at Santos, Busy P & Dj Mehdi at Santos,and Holy Ghost, Feadz, & Stretch Armstrong at the Yard)
Ironically, one of the few times I checked my email while I was in Paris earlier this month I saw a Facebook invite from Été d'Amour for their New York premiere...at the Rivington Hotel Penthouse...with Dimitri from Paris!
I love Dimitri from Paris. I first saw him back in 2004 at Crobar (yes, Crobar) and his set was awesome (and to add to the irony...I met the friend who I was visiting Paris with, at that party!). The Rivington Hotel is amazing and Été d'Amour have gone and combined the two, but better still! this party is not just a one time event, but a regular, weekly party just like last summer...with similarly great line-ups! Full info on the first party with Dimitri from Paris (happening this Sunday, May 31) below, along with the rest of the Été d'Amour parties that have been announced so far.
