A Night to Remember marks the first time that Tony Okungbowa and Jojoflores have worked
together, however the two initially met in 2010 through a mutual
friend. An identical passion and love for music had the two trading
creative ideas and music throughout the night and a few months later
Jojoflores invited Tony to play at his well-known Gotsoul party in
Toronto. Following the party, the duo met with Cucuzzella who suggested
using Unidisc Music’s catalogue to create what would become the aptly
named, A Night to Remember.
“A Night to Remember was an opportunity to deliver a DJ playlist to a
wider audience, music that we would listen to ourselves,” says Tony
Okungbowa. “People always ask me, what kind of music do you listen to?
What do you like? And this is it. This is the music I love.”Jojoflores
continues, “This project was a journey through the past for us
musically. When we added in France Joli’s “Gonna Get Over You” I was
flushed with memories of growing up. It’s just such a good feeling, so
uplifting. I hope our listeners will enjoy the record in the same way
and that it will take them on a journey of their own.”
“It was the first time a regular DJ had been featured on a daytime
national network television show.” - The Book LA
