Tonight Floripa resident and founding father Ross Clarke takes to the decks — Creative Director by day and resident DJ by night, Ross Clarke brings his unique originality and flair to Floripa. Combining his distinctive music credentials with twenty years of international DJing experience, Ross produces the eclectic series of musical events and performances at the Brazilian party haven.
Ross is responsible for launching some of the UK’s most recognised music events. He is co-founder of the established musical festival Lovebox, London’s twenty-first century cabaret club night ‘The Orgasmatron’ with Guy Chambers and Manchester’s finest hip hop label and club night ‘Fat City’. He has also worked with many of the world’s top DJs including Groove Armada, DJ Harvey, Massive Attack, Mr Scruff and DJ Marky.
Ross’s creative talent extends beyond music into journalism and filmmaking. Ross has written for a selection of London and music publications, including The Face and the eponymous Shoreditch Twat. As a filmmaker he set up his own production company Keep The Car Running in Los Angeles, and has directed the award-winning documentary ‘Skid Row’ and short ‘Some Place Safe’ starring Mark Strong. His feature ‘Dermaphoria’ with Ron Perlman (Drive, Hell Boy) and Alice Braga (City of God, I Am Legend) shoots this Autumn.
Floripa is the perfect place for dinner, drinks and dancing at the weekend. Book a table, sample our petiscos and carne (including the incredible Picanha Steak) with some fine Brazilian wines, then move onto cocktails at the bar and eventually the dancefloor. Why move around from place to place when you can be in the warm all evening and late into the night…
