Jefferson Celestino

Jefferson Celestino was featured on Bottom Forty last month with his collaborative mix of Don Downing’s Doctor Boogie with his mate Carlos Francisco. Jefferson is also a member of Juicy! Agency a specialized disco & nu disco Brazilian booking agent for worldwide artists including Alkalino, 80’s Child, and Los Charly’s Orchestra among others.

His bio reads, “Just a dinosaur spinning his records for love since 1992″, that’s the way the Brazilian but Frankfurt-based Jefferson Celestino likes to describe himself. Since he left his retirement in 2011, he has dedicated his efforts in spreading the disco/nu disco cultures wherever he is invited to play.

However, his musical influences allow him to flirt with different styles during his sets, from bossa nova to jazz, from soul to funk, from Latin/Brazilian to African stuff. Yes, definitely a complete mess!
A vinyl lover, he is still one of those crazy guys who still appreciate the struggle of carrying heavy record bags full of gems, old and new, only for the pleasure to feel the real thing.

This slo-mo disco track from 1978 boogies its way in a hypnotic groove coming in at 99 BPM. These guys will fit right in with the likes of Get Down Edits and Luxxury along with others on the low end. This free download provided as a kick off to a Brazilian DJ collective called Juicy! Agency, get it and dance with your favorite sexy somebody. Enjoy.
