Paradisco is a party focused on invigorating the "disco sound." From Nu Disco to Electro Disco, Paradisco brings an oasis of sounds that ignite the virtues of old while championing today's disco influences. Three of the cities top up-and-coming disco DJs take the reigns of the disco paradise at our first ever event at U Street Music Hall for The Midnight's After-party. RVSSLL, Fady D, and Rose Corps grace the oasis with a colorful collage of 80s synthpop, electro house, and disco house.
RVSSLL (Formerly "RussellRemix") is a DJ/Producer in the Indie Dance/Nu Disco genre from Washington, DC who combines the funk and disco sounds of the 70s and 80s with today's house and electronic movements. RVSSLL uses CDJs, DAWs, and Synthesizers to take his audiences back in time without ever feeling like they left the decade. RVSSLL was born in Boston and grew up in Maine, where his love of music began at age eleven rocking out to Bob Dylan and the Beatles on the acoustic guitar. However, it was his classical and jazz piano influences that caught early supporters' eyes, and at seventeen, his regionally-acclaimed jazz quintet competed and received distinction from the Berklee School of Music.
After graduating from American University, and working for years working on Capitol Hill, in the White House, and at the United Nations, RVSSLL became active in the emerging house music scene in Washington, DC's famed "U Street Corridor" and was inspired by local tropical and deep house artists to start mixing similar Indie House and Tropical House tracks on the CDJs. Two years later, RVSSLL is now a U Street fixture and can be seen most weekends spinning at some of DC's most iconic clubs like U Street Music Hall, Flash, the 9:30 Club, and Soundcheck. He also plays for select weddings, private events, and corporate functions. He recently became the resident DJ for corporate functions at the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) and looks to release new content in winter/spring 2018. Some of RVSSLL's influences include The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck, Daft Punk, David Guetta, ODESZA, Kygo, and Rufus Du Sol. When he is not spinning records, RVSSLL works as an IT Consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton and is an avid soccer player.
Fady Rizk, better known by his stage name as “Fady D,” was born and raised in Cairo, Egypt where he was inspired by the French touch scene to blend the old and new together with an upbeat disco flavor. He aims to bring traditional Middle Eastern instruments and samples into modern house sounds and introduce new and contrasting moods into an ever-transforming dance music scene.
Rose Corps is the solo project from singer, songwriter, synth player and DJ Aeron Premo. As a musician, she seeks to combine synth pop, disco, boogie, Italo and soul/R&B into danceable yet emotional songs. She is also notable for her DJ sets that are forward thinking yet deeply indebted to the history of dance and electronic music.
