BROOKLYN, New York: (Second World Productions) – Sunset Boogie is a multi-genre soulful dance party taking place the third Sunday each month at Brooklyn club, Analog BKNY. Resident DJ Selectress Iriela curates a vinyl centric mix of dance floor classics alongside modern ear candy featuring guest DJs and occasional live performers. Expect everything from soul power classics to funk anthems – but most of all expect the unexpected. The venue itself fittingly boasts a purely analog sound system, so the boogie commences May 21st with doors at 6pm until 12am at Analog BKNY located at 177 Second Avenue in Brooklyn NY.

Selectress Iriela is a DJ, producer and filmmaker who launched her career in 1996 spinning reggae on “Rockers,” the acclaimed reggae program created by MTV/VH1’s Doug Herzog on 88.9FM WERS Boston. Iriela has since worn hats of festival producer of her own modern remix of the Live Aid festival, Culture Fest International, as a filmmaker of the epic “Reggae Revolution,” and as a performer / producer in the international deep house scene with “No Sleep (Till NYC)”. Iriela has opened for stars ranging from Burning Spear to Ethiopian songbird Aster Aweke, was recently a guest on the Arsenio Hall Show, and has a forthcoming film series debuting on behalf of her social good tech company Second World combining talents of Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest, Amp Fiddler and Lady Starlight.

Dante had his first role at Def Jam/Rush in the late 1980s and is the architect of entire segments of the golden era of hip hop, constructing both Tommy Boy Records and Elektra Records’ rosters working with the likes of De La Soul and signing Queen Latifah, Brand Nubian, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Leaders Of The New School, KMD, Del The Funkee Homosapien, among others. Legendary tales abound from Mr. Ross, and he has the epic record collection to prove it – expect to sample a small taste of it on May 21st at Sunset Boogie.
