It’s been 10 years of spinning around New York venues for DJ Greg Caz, but he goes way back, doing a radio show in Haiti when he was 12 years old. You can spot him now Wednesdays at Nublu and Sundays at Black Betty, religiously! He’s been at BB for three years, and going on two at Nublu.
“Both are strictly dedicated to Brazilian music, real Brazilian music, not house with a percussion sample pretending to be Brazilian like you hear in a lot of places. It’s a labor of love, Brazilian music has enlightened and stimulated me since childhood when my dad would buy all these records, some of which I still play out every week!”
Greg Casseus isn’t tone deaf to anything other than Brazilian genres. He listens and collects music from all genres. Wednesdays at Nublu recently include a Cuban music live band, and this was DJ Greg’s chance to spin some salsa and Afro-Cuban rhythms: from the well-known Willie Colón and Hector Lavoe to more obscure stuff that only Latin music vinyl collectors will know about.
Where does he get this stuff? “Hey, I live to ‘dig the crates.’ Records show up anywhere, and I’m ALWAYS on the lookout.”
You should be on the lookout for this man, cause he is bound to make your evening an enjoyable one. Whether you look to sit and have a drink, or shake your coconuts on the dance floor.
