Colafest is the two-day extravaganza that starts with a New Year’s Eve fiesta at Motel Mexicola before kicking into a spectacular New Year’s Day pool party at the beach side Tropicola.
Bali’s hottest new beach club is one of the best places to celebrate this year’s New Year in style. From 2pm until 8pm on January 1st, guests will enjoy free flow food, spirits and amazing cocktails as fireworks light up the evening sky and the sounds of legendary international DJ/Producer sensation Late Nite Tuff Guy ensure the party pumps hard!
Since exploding onto the scene a few years ago, Late Nite Tuff Guy has forged a position as one of the most in-demand and best-loved DJ/producers on the planet, with Greg Wilson rightly referring to him as “a leading light of the global re-edits movement.” A superhero of soul, a destroyer of dance floors and a purveyor of the smoothest sounds this side of 1977, LNTG is synonymous with the sexiest of sets and the most credible of disco edits, and has amassed legions of devoted fans from every corner of the globe.
With a boy in every port and girls in every club, crowds in Berlin, London, Melbourne, Glasgow, Paris, Dublin and beyond have all succumbed to his spell. He’s also a highly sought after producer for some of the world’s biggest artists and most iconic record labels, and has completed official remixes for the likes of New Order, Herb Alpert and Timmy Thomas. LNTG’s edits and sets have received serious acclaim from an illustrious roll call of heads in the know, including Todd Terje, Ellen Alien, Steve Lawler, Carl Cox, Nic Fanciulli, Jackmaster and Optimo, and his production skills have seen him become an online sensation, receiving over eight million plays (and counting) on SoundCloud.
Here’s a tasty selection from LNTG from last year.
After being approached by iconic and world famous record label ‘Salsoul’ his LNTG EP was released April 21st 2018 to coincide with Record Store Day internationally. But while he is bossing all things digital, it’s the clubs and festivals where his heart is at, playing to the people that know and love him and winning over new fans. Aside from his usual DJ sets, he has been channeling his obsession with Prince into a series of extremely popular tribute shows, proving that he’s one of the few people on the planet who can do Prince’s discography justice. June 2018 saw his inaugural American tour as he headed to the home of disco and he will return to the US in 2019.
Playing everywhere from the Berghain to Bestival, and with influences ranging from Mancuso to Toto, Late Nite Tuff Guy is a new breed of disco vigilante, paying his respects to the past while thrilling the clubbers of today. It is only right that Greg Wilson has the last word: “The quality and consistency of Late Nite Tuff Guy’s work has elevated him to the vanguard – he has the knack of picking the right tracks to reinterpret, and his output of essential reworkings has been prolific.”
