The good folks at Presidente Beer and Boiler Room TV threw a truly epic bash to celebrate the launch of Más Fuerte, a short film by Sean Frank that looks at the Dominican sound system vans and the exchange of music, culture and traditions between Santo Domingo and NYC. The event took place on June 9 at a now defunct petrol facility in Long Island City that was transformed to a massive party space replete with custom made sound vans as well as incredible DJ sets from Nina Sky and DJ Prostyle. In addition we were treated to performances from A. CHAL and El Mayor Clasico with Maluca La Mala hosting the festivities. Did I mention the free flowing Presidente Beer for the entire duration of the event? This has to be one of the best I have ever been to, bar none.
