Chuckie, meet Lavo. Lavo, meet Chuckie. It’s their second date after Chuckie turned the house upside down back in July, and it’s safe to say that these two are quite the match. Lavo’s powerhouse custom-designed system and intimate uber-chic atmosphere set the perfect stage for Chuckie’s dirty Dutch beats–and other DJs seem to agree; you’d be hard pressed to find a DJ spinning at Lavo that leaves out Move It 2 The Drum or Chuckie’s Sexy Bitch remix. This time, we got to hear it from the man himself.
From the studio to the decks, Chuckie is the master of the Dutch house craft. Aside from the beats and the bass, Chuckie’s ability to connect with his audience boosts his performance to another level. Lavo gives patrons the ability to get up close and personal with their favorite DJs, and Chuckie completely thrived on this intimacy. There was never a moment where the music was out of sync with the crowd, never a hand extended that wasn’t met with a shake, and at one point Chuckie got on the mic and said, “You could be anywhere in the world right now, but you’re here in New York with me.” Getting goosebumps yet? Me too.
With bookings like Chuckie, Avicii, and Calvin Harris, Lavo has quickly risen to the top of the NYC dance music scene. Supermodel DJ Tatiana Fontes takes the stage next week, so if you want to get a view of this Brazilian beauty, arrive early, and be ready to dance.
