Meet our After Party DJ’s:
Redefining the word “remix”, Rimarkable is a renaissance woman indeed. Truly mastering the DJ technique of “Reading the Crowd”, she has earned the moniker, “Rimarkable”. After rocking on international dance floors for over two decades, her keen ability to “give the people what they want and didn’t know they wanted” has allowed her to share the bill with a host of superstars from George Clinton to Madonna. Rimarkable is the curator and resident DJ for arterotica and Everybody Random. She resides in Brooklyn, NY where she owns and operates her creative umbrella company, Rimarkable Things.
ROBI D LIGHT
With boundless energy and an infectious smile, Brooklyn-based DJ Robi D Light is a household name within New York City’s LGBTQ nightlife community. Her eclectic sets and professionalism have led to performances for AOL, The Rockefeller Foundation, Harlem School of the Arts, Stonewall Community Foundation, Manhattan’s LGBTQ Center, and St. Malachy’s Chapel. Robi has shared the stage with R&B duo Nina Sky and recently opened for the legendary Lady Bunny. Robi frequently performs at Ace Hotel and holds a residency at Topshop in New York’s Soho neighborhood. In 2016, Robi won Go Magazine Reader’s Choice Award for best R&B DJ.
In 2015, Robi was selected to join Scratch Music Group (SMG), a music company founded by Run DMC’s Jam Master Jay. SMG specializes in pairing club-caliber DJs with leading brands. As a member of this elite team, Robi is consistently booked to spin for retail giants H&M, Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, Sephora, Oakley, Sak’s 5th Avenue, Lily Pulitzer, and many more. When she is not spinning, Robi leads DJ classes for Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, a non-profit music and mentoring program.
