New Music: Brasil Is Not For Amateurs
Weli, aka DJ SPORTSWE(li)AR, is a Brazilian DJ based in New York. Born in a small town in southern Minas Gerais and raised around Samba and Baile Funk culture, he blends his roots with genres like Hip Hop, Afro Beats, Footwork and more in his sets all over the city. Weli and his crew represent some of the best of NYC nightlife. What I love most about them is their ability to be so Brazilian and so New York all at the same time.
Be sure to check Weli out one at one of his monthly residences at Max Fish, Von Bar, Union Pool, and Lovers Rock. They get busy, and so will you. I gave you fair warning, beware.
