Sabrosura Monthly Party Launches at The Garret: "House-y Beats With Latin Spices"
"It was a natural fit," he tells us. "A lot of my songs from my DJ sets are mash-ups that I bring from that type of culture, like from Fania. I have remixes and traditional cumbia mixed into bass, more house-y beats with Latin spices. I actually do a lot of mash-ups from current tracks to going crazy, from the Strokes and Nirvana to Hector Lavoe or Willie Colon. I mash all those guys. It's really fun to be a part of it."
Mike Deuce, another progressive Grand Central favorite with Hispanic roots, will be bringing his own brand of Latin-infused hard funk and electro. The two men will each bring something unique to the decks while both blending the nostalgic sounds of Motown and Latin rhythms with modern dance stuff.
The whole place will also be decorated in Hispanic kitsch, transforming The Garret into a blast from your past. And did we mention drink specials? Enjoy $8 Medallas and Herradura tequila as well as two-for-one Redd's Apple Ale. But even with the booze, we know what you're coming to do.
"The dancing's going to be amazing," Mr. Pauer said. "It's going to be beginning-to-end dancing, bringing a lot of flash back from the childhood, as far as your parents or your abuelas, and actually embracing that culture in this era. I think that's the best part."
