Practice For NYE = Success!

Since some of our closest comrades are traveling abroad this holiday season, we decide to through a pre-NYE (with champagne, tinsel, and a countdown to boot), so they could have some Mehanata NYE madness before they left. It was awesome.

Burdel Dali News & Updates!

Sorry, we’ve been super inactive lately on the blog — but so much has been going down!

First off, our friends from BAD BUKA have opened up a Yoga & healing arts center called The Studio @ 3 Elements. It’s a Yoga, Art & Meditation community and they are amazing people so go check them out.

Secondly, our homeboy (and Mehanata‘s newest semi-resident DJ) Aisle Violator has a new mix out on Soundcloud—It’s Bizar Bazar’s Axe in the Honey (Aisle Violator Balkan Funk edit).

 

Last weekend was one of our craziest parties ever, with a special appearance by Chico Trujillo and everyone who partied at their SOB’s show. The dance floor was total gravity-defying madness.

Later that weekend the burdel familia ventured to Prospect Park to see Chico Trujillo & Balkan Beat Box play the park stage… Some pics below!

Last week, Raphlex, Mishto, & Chico Selektah teamed up for a three way of ridiculously good dance floor killing trans-global beats and the entire room went nuts for hours on end… see evidence of our insanity below!

P.S. THE THREE YEAR ANNIVERSARY IS COMING UP! Check out three years of infamous burdel dali moments here and get ready for our big 3 year anniversary party announcement.

THE RUSSIAN WEDDING!

We DJ’d a Russian wedding in Cazenovia last September and we just finished up this quick bit of video evidence on how much effing fun it was. Jenia & Sergey, the happy couple, were so awesome and accommodating, and they let us turn their wedding into a raging dance party.

Video by Mishka. And if you haven’t seen our new promo video by now, check that out. Also check out our video from Golden Festival last weekend! Videos everywhere!!

We never posted photos from that wedding, so here they are. They include the beautiful farm house we stayed at, the cocktail hour, the reception, a few shots from around the town, and the crazy storm we drove home in.

Zlatne Uste Brass Band’s GOLDEN FESTIVAL

Golden Festival is put on by Zlatne Uste Brass Band every year, and this year the Burdel Familia finally got our asses over there for a night of rampant celebration in the hyper-opulent surroundings of the Grand Prospect Hall ballroom.

Think pastel-painted molding, chandeliers big enough for 5 people to swing on, balconies overlooking enormous dance floors, and room after room of live music ranging from Spanish flamenco to Bulgarian gypsy-jazz to Ukrainian marches. We saw some of our friends and favorite bands: Kagero, Yuri Yunakov & The Grand Masters of Gypsy Music, Raya Brass Band, Avram Pengas, and tons more. It was killer.

We had the absolute pleasure of seeing Toronto’s Lemon Bucket Orkestra perform in the grand ballroom and were so blown away we teamed up with our partner in musical crime, Michael Katsobashvili, to escort the band back to Mehanata, where they performed for a packed club and then stayed with us on the mezzanine, jamming until 7:30AM.

There are really no words to describe what an amazing weekend it was altogether. We want to say a huge, huge thank you to the performers, to Zlatne Uste for organizing the whole thing, and for Lemon Bucket for letting us caravan them through the broken NYC subway system very late at night so we wouldn’t have to let the experience end any earlier than absolutely necessary. Look out for Lemon Bucket’s valiant return to NYC ASAP (or our imminent trip to Toronto, whichever happens first).

There was really no better way to start 2012.

Heads up, we are editing a video or two from our 6 gigs of festival footage so you can re-live this night with us!

Burdel Dali Family
