So you think I can’t play pop to the gays?
This is an unedited DJ Mix recorded live at NYC most legendary gay club Splash NYC on Thanksgiving Night 2012. Thursday nights at Splash are pop oriented devoted to young college gay boys. This is a special set designed to meet a happy medium between pop, house, progressive and electro. Since I had the pleasure of playing during peak hours on the main floor of a packed house, I chose a high energy progressive house set with enough pop to keep the boys happy! At times, I can describe this set asdare I say at what I call “tacky” house anthems. Playing to a young gay crowd always presents a challenge, they want radio hits you want beats. However, given by the crowd reaction, and the fact that I didn’t get a single request all night, I would say I succeeded.

New Years is not confirmed. I am still accepting offers for New Years events in NYC.

Thursday Oct 25, I battle one of my best friends, DJ John Marto on the main floor of Splash Bar- NYC most infamous gay club. Splash has been completely remodeled and features a brand new state of the art sound system. We are planning a special Halloween theme featuring darker, more aggressive music. I will be switching on and off with Marto, every 2 hours. Splash will not feature another dj in the downstairs lounge as they chose to just have our music playing through the club- a very special night indeed! Electro (John Marto) vs Progressive House (DJ Ricardo (me)), don’t miss out on this very special night!! I will be djing using my newly purchased Native Instruments Traktor S2! Check out the facebook invite
The next time I play main floor of Splash isn’t until Thanksgiving night so don’t miss out!
Playing all night long downstairs at Splash this Thursday expect plenty of vocals and driving beats!
