Some people think all it takes to be a DJ is a Mac computer and Protools. Then there’s Cofresi. The Chicago born beatmaker and drummer sets his dance music apart from the competitors by emphasizing the use of live drums and beat production to get a sound that’s smooth, more energetic, and groovier than most typical electronic music. His irresistible beats are best heard on his debut EP Nuveau, which came out six months ago. Along with original compositions, Cofresi also includes remixes of popular songs, like Rihanna’s “Stay.” If you didn’t get a chance to catch the musician when he played the Riviera Theatre back in April, now’s your chance to catch his set. He’ll be playing the Cerise nightclub at the Virgin Hotel. If you love music with lush soundscapes, memorable beats, and intense rhythm, you have to check out Cofresi.
