Harlem-born Osvaldo Chance Jimenez aka SlutLust aka OJ takes on European nightlife in Washed Part 3 EuroTrippp, a book that documents his club travels as uniquely informed by his background as a photographer, writer, club promoter and member of the Peter Pan Posse creative collective.
Published by French publisher BATT coop, the book’s cover art was created by New York-based artist Christopher Johnson. The book is dedicated to house DJ Blu Jemz, who passed away in November 2018.
According to press, “The book is a true ‘story’ about the rooms we all want to be in, and the keys needed to get inside. EuroTrippp is a scumbag sonnet of a first generation Dominican dead beat that lost it all, just to fail upwards again. There are no heroes here. A brutally honest, sometimes hilarious, firsthand account of a late blooming nightlife extraordinaire, as he travels from deep inside of his wildest dreams to the very streets of Europe and the art that got him here.”
Jimenez is married to the equally cool Kara Mullins, who he married on a New York City bus in 2017. Among their many creative endeavors, Mullins and Jimenez owned La Petite Mort, a quirky/popular vintage boutique located on Orchard Street in lower Manhattan.
