Victor and Dustin Drai celebrate 25th Anniversary at Drai’s After Hours VIA 360 MAGAZINE

Drai’s 25th Anniversary

Drai’s Commemorates Incredible 25-Year Anniversary with a VIP Celebration and All-Night Party

Opened in 1997, Victor Drai’s iconic nightclub changed the Las Vegas landscape by introducing nightlife to the Las Vegas Strip

The iconic Drai’s Las Vegas, founded by legendary nightlife innovator Victor Drai, celebrated its remarkable 25-year anniversary on Saturday, Oct. 15 at its original Las Vegas location at Drai’s After Hours. Hosted by Drai and his son, Dustin Drai, who currently serves as vice president of entertainment at Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub and is also his father’s business partner for Drai’s After Hours, the VIP event was a celebration of Drai’s past, present and future with a guest list that included current and former employees, executives and performers, reuniting to share fond memories, photos and stories of the historic club.

The evening’s formal presentation was highlighted by an official proclamation presented to Drai by Clark County Commissioners Tick Segerblom and William McCurdy II, symbolizing Drai’s standing as a one-of-a-kind Las Vegas hallmark, as well as a special video message from Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman.

With a nod to what he calls the “Drai’s family” both past and present, Dustin Drai stated, “Yes, we’re celebrating 25 years of Drai’s Las Vegas, but what we’re really celebrating is 25 years of being a part of Las Vegas nightlife and how my father has created not only jobs for the people that have worked here, but the nightlife industry overall which has provided livelihoods and careers to thousands and thousands of people who may or may not have come to Las Vegas without him coming here.”

Victor and Dustin were honored with a specially crafted 25-year anniversary cake before mingling and partying the night away at Drai’s After Hours, where guests including Wiz Khalifa, who headlined a Drai’s LIVE concert at Drai’s Nightclub earlier in the night, enjoyed an electric party that featured the return of many of Drai’s original house DJ’s who brought the night’s vibe back to the club’s early roots of house music.

Founder and visionary Victor Drai brought Drai’s, his uber-popular Los Angeles restaurant, to Las Vegas in 1997. By 1999, Drai’s had become Las Vegas’ in-demand hotspot for after-hours, with a line of people clamoring to get in from late at night through the early morning. In 2014, Drai expanded his nightlife footprint to the 11thstory rooftop of the hotel with the introduction of Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub, a palatial 65,000-square-foot club, as part of the property’s rebrand to The Cromwell, a swanky boutique hotel. Drai’s After Hours remains in its original location in the basement of the property – where the walls are still awash in Drai’s signature red with Victor’s legendary art collection hanging from the walls. 

Victor’s son, Dustin Drai, now ensures the continued success of his father’s vision by overseeing Drai’s After Hours and bringing epic full-length performances by A-list artists to the Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub stage as part of the Drai’s LIVE series.

The Drai’s celebration weekend kicked off with a bang on Friday, Oct. 14, when music superstar Chris Brown attended the high energy concert by Grammy-nominated singer, Fabolous, at Drai’s Nightclub.

Over the past 25 years, Drai’s has hosted countless superstars and icons including Quincy Jones, Timbaland, Rihanna, Paris Hilton, Kourtney Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Kevin Hart, Rick Ross, 50 Cent and more who have performed or partied at Drai’s in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas. There have been several exclusive events at Drai’s including E! Network’s Oscar Viewing and After Party in 2010, Jones and Chris Brown’s “Thriller” Night in 2015, and the Billboard Music Awards After Party in 2016. 

Drai’s is the only nightclub in Las Vegas that offers full-length concerts by today’s top-charting artists. Every weekend, the Drai’s LIVE concert series brings big names like Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, Lil Baby and TIP to the rooftop of The Cromwell, with banner performances set to the stunning backdrop of the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. Drai’s Nightclub is open from 10 p.m. – 4 a.m. Friday – Saturday throughout the month. Drai’s Nightclub will be open on Sunday, Oct. 30 for a special Halloween weekend celebration. The upcoming Drai’s Nightclub lineup can be found at https://draisgroup.com/las-vegas/calendar-view/.

Lady London – Lady Like: The Boss Tape

Trinidadian/ Jamaican American artist Lady London released her “Lady Like: The Boss Tape;” a series of her most acclaimed freestyles since she surfaced in the rap scene in 2018.

The New Jersey/ New York artist possesses a wide range of talents, from being a rapper, songwriter, poet, published author and educated woman, there’s not much that she cannot do. Her music reflects her drive, and “Lady Like: The Boss Tape” highlights all the best parts of her music.

This compilation of freestyles showcases London’s talent of freestyling, which gained her praise on social media. In her tracks, London remixes some iconic Hip Hop tracks and gives them her own flare. Featured tracks include “Lisa Story” ft. Dub Aura that samples “Get Me Home” by Foxy Brown and “Long Live Shamello” that remixes Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See.” Check out the full tracklist below.

The popularity of London’s freestyles has gained widespread attention, earning herself co-signs from Cardi B, Nas, Timbaland and so many more. Sitting at 618k followers on Instagram, London has established a loyal fanbase that has supported her music through the years. Lady London continues to elevate the rap scene, and last year she released two standout singles; “Money Over” and “Never,” which is her most personal record to date.

Lady London is one artist that you will want to keep on your radar as we dive into 2022.

About Lady London

New Jersey-born and Los-Angeles based rapper Lady London is known for her rhythmic lyricism. While her mother was Jamaican and Father Trinidadian, her childhood was divided between East Orange, New Jersey and the Bronx, New York. Hip hop culture has been an integral part of her life, as her uncle was Chino XL, and she grew up inspired by artists like JAY-Z, Lil Kim and Whitney Houston. In college, London was on a pre-med path, but still expressed her love for the arts while putting on successful poetry shows. In 2018, she posted one of her poetry videos online, and the video went viral with 8-million plus views. After London obtained her Master of Science from Keck School of Medicine at USC, she also was accepted into the school’s medical program.

Ultimately, London put her dream of medical school in the past to chase her dream of music. She talks about the decision, stating, “everything changed, I figured I could always go back to school. Convincing my West Indian family was very interesting. They didn’t understand why I was willing to give up everything I had been working towards. I knew I had to do music, though. You can’t run from destiny.”

Moreover, London’s career has taken off since 2018. This artist has generated millions of views online with her own original music. Her single released in 2021, “Money Over,” accumulated 500,000-plus views on YouTube as the one and only Cardi B described London as “the most slept on” to social media. London serves as a SAVAGE ambassador for Rihanna’s FENTY. Giving a performance in support of Black Lives Matter at the BET Awards, London caught the attention of many, eventually becoming co-signed by Diddy and Revolt TV.

“There are multiple levels to me,” Lady London clarifies. “I’m not one-dimensional. I really take my craft seriously. I consider rap to be an artform—not a trend. I’ve studied cadences, timing, breath control, double and triple entendres, and syllables. It almost breaks down to an exact science. I pay attention to verbiage, semantics, and diction. I’m a connoisseur of rhythmical composition in its purest form. I’m just a boss.”

Lady London continues to prove herself in the rap world as a force to be reckoned with.

BRUNO MARTINI REMAKES BRING ME TO LIFE

Bruno Martini was still a teenager when Amy Lee’s voice conquered the world with “Fallen”, Evanescence’s first album. The hit “Bring Me to Life”, was one of the songs on the album, and marked a generation becoming one of the band’s biggest hits. Now, 18 years later, fans of the group can get a remake of the iconic song by the hands of Bruno Martini. Invited by David Hodges, former Evanescence’s member and one of the authors of “Bring Me to Life”, Bruno brings the song back to the scene with a whole new look. Listen to it here

The music video features Brazilian actress Vanessa Giácomo sharing the stage with Martini on a story filled with fiction and lights. Vanessa appears with a futuristic look inside a pyramid, matching its aesthetics with the new sound Bruno brought to the song. The music video was shot in the countryside of São Paulo.

The idea of bringing new life to the song came from David Hodges during the pandemic. The musician contacted Martini’s team, who soon accepted the challenge of working on the song that marked his teenage years. The new “Bring Me to Life” has David Hodges on the vocals, bringing a nostalgic feeling to the project. David’s voice was crafted by Bruno, who brought new contours to the track, creating a more modern sound with an electronic atmosphere.

BRUNO´S HITS

Bruno Martini is becoming one of the go-to producers in Brazil. With an extensive resume playing on some of the biggest festivals around the world, he has worked with stars such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Becky Hill. He was the first Brazilian artist to make work with the legendary American producer Timbaland. His numbers are impressive. He has over 1.3 billion streams on Spotify, more than 600 million views on YouTube, and Diamond, Platinum, and Gold certificates worldwide. He has worked with some of today’s biggest Brazilian acts such as Luísa Sonza, IZA, Alok, Vitor Kley, Dennis DJ, and many more.

Recently, Bruno released the song “Where’d U Go” featuring Cat Dealers. He also remixed the iconic song from Netflix hit series “La Casa de Papel”, “Bella Ciao,” invited by the actress Najwa Rimri, who plays inspector Alicia Sierra in the series. Earlier this year, Bruno released “Original,” a 17-track full album, filled with female voices, such as IZA, Becky Hill, Luísa Sonza, Mayra, Carol Biazin and ex-Now United’s Diarra Sylla. The album still brings a collab with Bruno’s longtime friend and music partner Zeeba, whose voice became famous on Bruno Martini’s worldwide hit “Hear Me Now”.

Jordan Hollywood – Pleasures

Florida rapper, singer, producer, and hitmaking CEO Jordan Hollywood unleashes “Pleasures” a new single and music video out now via Quality Control Music/Motown Records. Listen HERE and watch the video HERE. The song paves the way for his upcoming album, Only The Paranoid Survive, coming soon.

On the track, a hypnotic beat grates up against his intent flow. His nimble rhymes give way to a confessional chorus, “I wake up everyday. I tell my son that I love himߪI miss my mom so much I wish that I could hug you.” In the accompanying visual, a psychotherapist reminds Jordan, Only The Paranoid Survive, before he raps from the couch. As stacks fly, he ends up in a literal battle of tug-of-war before facing off against an entire tactical team. 

“Pleasures” follows his energized summer banger “The Ugly Song” a collaboration with producer legend Timbaland who told Jordan “You really took it there. Lyrically, video style, concept. I just wanna be the added piece to the puzzle.” ThPle record received acclaim from NME, REVOLT, and more, XXL named it among, “The 13 Best New Songs This Week,” and HotNewHipHop raved, “Jordan Hollywood has his hands on a summer smash.”

About Jordan Hollywood

Jordan Hollywood believes paranoia is integral to his success. “I think being paranoid is healthy,” says the Florida native. “Overthinking certain situations can reduce the losses you take in life.” It’s difficult to argue with the versatile artist, producer, CEO, and hustler. His singular ability to blend witty punchlines, vulnerable verses, and melodic croons into captivating rap/R&B/pop hybrids has resonated with his growing fanbase for years. After a stint in his youth writing for fellow Broward County artist Jason Derulo, Hollywood released a successful independent debut Sorry for This in 2016 and then signed with Quality Control Music for 2018’s FINALLY!. The whole way, he’s held to his ever-skeptical mentality, which has now afforded him the space and close-knit creative circle to create his most honest and mature album to date the forthcoming Only the Paranoid Survive. The album is a document of Hollywood’s growth as he perfects the art of balancing family, loyalty, and financial gains. Only the Paranoid Survive is a product of the countless hours Hollywood spent holed up in his home studio speaking to the microphone about everything from the pressures and anxieties of the unknown, new fatherhood, and avoiding people who he doesn’t trust.  The emotions he spills don’t feel born of negativity, but of self-preservation through his worries, he’s learning how to thrive.

Jordan Hollywood – The Ugly Song

Florida rapper, singer, producer, and hitmaking CEO Jordan Hollywood returns with “The Ugly Song,” the speaker-rattling, Timbaland-featuring lead single from his upcoming album, Only the Paranoid Survive. Listen HERE. Out today on Quality Control Music/Motown Records, the song is accompanied by a captivating, cinematic, and often hilarious music video that finds the artist progressing from the country to the country club. Watch HERE.

“It’s crazy how 20 years ago I enjoyed this song as a kid and now it’s part of my legacy. It’s one thing to get a Timbaland beat or to get him to clear a sample but it’s special when the legend himself steps in the booth with you and adds his touches to your vision,” says Jordan Hollywood. “I never in a million years thought I’d get to work with the hitmaker. With the video I told the director I want this shit to feel like an open world video game where I have freedom to randomly do things my way.’ “The Ugly Song” is just the start.”

An homage to Bubba Sparxxx’s Timbaland-produced single “Ugly,” “The Ugly Song” is a banging reinterpretation that flips the early 2000s classic for a new generation. The instrumental deftly chops Timbaland’s Bollywood-influenced melodies and pairs them with quaking drums and trap percussion. Offering both his blessing and his vocals, Timbaland delivers his signature ad-libs (“ficky ficky”), while Hollywood effortlessly glides over the beat. As ever, Hollywood stuffs his melodic and athletic bars full of witty metaphors: “Snitches they get stitches, they gon’ pick ’em up and sew ’em/Snakes all in my grass, I gotta go outside and mow ’em.” This is Hollywood flexing on his enemies, making it rain in the club to celebrate wins past and present. “The Ugly Song” follows Timbaland’s galvanic VERZUZ battle with Swizz Beatz filled with throwbacks.

The video, directed by Austin McCracken and filmed in Los Angeles, makes liberal use of visual effects (and openly nods to that at the end), dropping Hollywood into a wheat field accompanied by a horse who eventually kicks him in the head. The rapper continues to get knocked into or out of various colorful scenarios. Both the video and the song break from expectation, showing that Hollywood is willing to challenge himself and share a laugh. “The Ugly Song” is Hollywood’s first release since 2019’s “Testament,” wherein he recounted the hurdles he’s endured on his rise.
