Though Nick Dewey (James Brown's Sweat) and Jasper Delaini (DJ Sensitive Side) are the fathers of the irregularly thrown but always memorable Mai Kai dance party, Radio-Active Records' Mikey Ramirez has lent his vinyl stylings to the affair about a handful of times. The crew is regrouping this Saturday, and as Ramirez told us, "expect a bloodbath." A rum-soaked, booty-shaking bloodbath.
Though all three are busy with families and businesses, they managed to carve out time for this "death by dance" event for you party people. So say thank you by chugging a few boozy bevs from ceramic skulls and swishing that rockabilly skirt from side to side.
"I was honored that they asked me to help out." Ramirez says. "It's a rare occurrence, but they announced it this time around, and I was excited."
