DJ For A Cure’s second event went down last Thursday with PUMA and KRINK NYC. The event took place in No. 8’s edgy, yet cozy game room. The event was hosted by DJ KISS and featured two inspirational speeches from DJ4C’s very own Quiana Parks and cancer survivor Lindsey Lewis.
DJ Charles Browne started out the night DJing getting the crowd in the party mood and ready to kick ass at some games. DJ Austin Millz and Quiana Parks soon followed him with sets of their own. DJ Rick Kid even stopped by for a surprise visit finishing out the night with his set.
Throughout the night the Leukemia & Lymphoma society collected donations from the guests, and ended up raising $591!
It was a successful night for the DJ4C team! Thanks to everyone who came to support and to everyone who donated. Continue to follow the DJ4C movement; the next event will be going down July 14th!

Wednesday night I joined forces with renowned lifestyle brand PUMA to host the First Annual DJ For A Cure Art & Mix Show! Over 200 of New York’s key influences and tastemakers gathered at Mister H to raise over $5,000 dollars for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The room was filled with industry creatives such as Ty Hunter (Beyonce’s wardrobe stylist), Luke James (Grammy Nominated Recording Artist), Chef Roble (Bravo TV Reality Star), Shaun Ross (Model) and DJ D-Nice, Legendary Damon (Stylist) and more.
It was AH-May-ZING! I am an 8 year cancer survivor so for me this event hit close to home. It meant a lot to me to have all of my friends and family come out to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
Special Thanks to all of those who helped! -@quianaparks

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I am slowly transitioning from my fall clothes into your comfy winter sweaters and boots. And with that, now I am thinking about what to wear to the “Baby Ima Star” party I’m DJing at on Thanksgiving Eve: dress or pants? Boots or heels? Go casual or formal? Ugh. I will be spinning along side of DJ M.O.S. and DJ Kiss with guest DJ’s DJ D-Nice and DJ Juss.
I spin at the “Baby Ima Star” party every week, but this week is special. A lot of my friends and family are coming from out of town for the holiday. I really want to look my best! What should I wear JUNQUIs! Help ME! Hit me up on my Instagram (@quianaparks) and let me know what your pick is!
Also Come Party with Us! Here is the invite! Hope to see you there ;)!

Hear DJ M.O.S. do his thing on his new killer mixtape Electric Boogie. You will find yourself unleashing a lot of coiled energy and new found creativity while listening to this awesome mixtape. It’s fair to say that DJ M.O.S. is one of New York’s leading music exponents, and one of the country’s most sought out DJs! For his Electric Boogie mix, M.O.S.’ tracklist shows off his unique ear for music. Including some of his own Bootleg Edits featuring songs by Kendrick Lamar, TNGHT, Trinidad James, The Killers and more. Electric Boogie is firmly geared towards the dancefloor, taking in plenty of exciting, hands-high moments, before moving into more melodic, spacey club sounds, but never letting things get too restrained.

Sometimes you just want to dance. But with plenty of party photographers around to capture every joyfully candid moment. So it is at DJ Kiss and DJ MOS’ Baby Ima Star party held at Mister H on Wednesdays, where you’ll find a gathering of models in Ray-Bans and hipsters in blazers, all dancing in harmony to an endless rotation of oldies favorites. Stiletto damage to the furniture has run into the millions.
