Wednesday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – BoraTrazer is a new website that has devised a great new way to see the DJs you like brought to Rio. By voting between various DJs, the majority vote will result in that DJ being booked and brought to Rio for a one night only show. To kick start the launch of the new site, Fosfobox will host the launch party featuring a few of Rio’s favorite resident DJs.
