The star-studded party drew many of the cooler VIPs in town for the art market. Among the audience were Andre, the French graffiti artist, Kitsune founders Gildas and Masaya from Paris, and Los Angeles artist Cali Thornhill DeWitt.
On top of the MCs, the talent for the night featured London’s DJ Maximum on the decks, along with Guillaume Berg from Bromance Records, Younglord from the A$AP crew, and a few others.
The party was a celebration tied to the art exhibition of Cali Thornhill DeWitt that took place at Art Central during the same week as Art Basel.
Starting at 11:59pm, the event went late. The highlight was easily the fiery Grime set by rappers Skepta and JME, who performed several of their underground hits. The audience response was impressive, with many in the crowd mouthing the words and dancing along.
