Derrick Carter plays parties, makes music, dances, sings, and really, really likes shoes. One of the pioneers of house music in Chicago, IL, USA in the 1990s, he used to work for Green Velvet’s Cajual Records, and at Chicago’s still existing and legendary record shop, Gramophone Records. Derrick Carter is widely acknowledged as one of the best DJs in the world. With innovative productions, his prestigious record label Classic, his flawless technical skills, and an effortlessly joyful attitude of rocking a crowd, his influence has infiltrated throughout the spectrum of dance music for over 3 decades. By refusing to accept conventional standards and instead choosing to simply do his own thing he has built a worldwide reputation as one of the underground pioneers, becoming a major figure among dance-music aficionados. Derrick’s sets are rooted in house, but he freely travels outside com-formative club tastes, seamlessly incorporating old-school disco, soul, jazz, and whatever else catches his fancy to jack the beat and rock the party. His sets are of legend and we are thrilled to have him grace the decks for our Capricorn Affair.

Celebrating Taimur’s 40th birthday on this special occasion, the former NYC based DJ, producer and record label owner of Blkmarket Music has been residing in Miami for the past three years. His DJ resume includes multiple appearances at world renowned clubs, festivals, and parties: fabriclondon, Houghton Festival, Berlin’s Panorama Bar & Club der Visionaere, Montreal’s STEREO, Miami’s Electric Pickle and ATV Records, Romania’s Sunwaves, Francois K’s Deep Space, Detroit’s infamous Need I Say More, B018 in Beirut, NYC’s Output, and many more. Never less than 2 full record bags accompany this guy wherever he plays so you know it’s about to go down.

Kenny Jones is the founder of Alegria Community, a content based artist
movement in Miami that is breaking barriers beyond the artistic by bringing creatives from all spectrums of the music and art world. She will be gracing the decks as we celebrate her birthday as well.

Frny from Alegria Community will be rounding off the lineup and joining us.

We will have some exciting unique vendors joining us in the herbal, jewelry, food, vinyl records, radio, and clothing departments
