New York City just had the most epic hour lunch break with The Jillionaire and Walshy Fire as they took over Highline Ballroom today. Flavorpill presented the Absolut Lunch Break for New Yorkers that wanted to get out of the office and turn up at 1pm. The free dance party offered free Absolut mixed drinks, neon geek eye glasses, glow stick tubes, and a to-go lunch bag on the way out and back to work.
After dancing up a storm, we caught up with DJs after the show and asked them what they thought about this uncommon lunch break set-up. The Jillionaire, who used to live in Jersey City, said, "It was great and I had a lot of fun. We didn't know what to expect and it's crazy because it happened at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. I'm good friends with people who do Dream Hotel and they did one last week or two weeks ago and said it was crazy and that people just come, dance, and leave." Walshy Fire also had a blast and said, "It was really fun and I love the concept; it could really only happen in major cities because obviously people have to be close enough to say I'll hop on a train really quick or I'll walk over and come..I think the venue is a perfect size for the amount of people and their energy. It's kind of crazy because people are going back to work after they just got really turnt up, and have to go back to their desks now, but the energy was excellent. It was a dope event, dope concept."
They have been touring all over the world these past few months and they can't complain. Walshy Fire said, "I'm loving it, it is a blessing, no lie." We asked them what they have on their major to-do list. The Jillionaire said, "We just finished up our spring/summer tours and our summer festivals in Europe. We are finishing Block Party this weekend with L.A. and San Diego as our last stops. In October we'll start working on the new album, so we'll be going to Miami and Jamaica to have writing sessions. We'll be working on a bunch of new songs and in November we'll do a European club tour." Walshy Fire added, "We got some new stuff coming out; new music and working on a new show, but the new music should drop at the end of this year, so we're just working on music full-time."
If you missed out on the lunch break, no worries! The duo will be DJing at two of the hottest New York City clubs tonight. You can find The Jillionaire at Riff Raffs and Walshy Fire at Hudson Terrace. Walshy Fire said, "I've never been to Hudson Terrace before, but I've seen pictures and it's a nice venue. I'm very excited, I love New York." Ladies and gentlemen there's nothing bad about this Friday the 13th!
