Happy Valentines Day! For all of the lovers tonight, we’re doing a special tribute to the ultimate love siren, Sade. DJ Wildcat and Camp Gabby will be serenading you all night long with Sade, Sade and more Sade, YAY! And everyone’s fav nightlife don, Henri Binge, will be hosting the love fest. Bring your lover down! 10pm.
We’re often disappointed that, increasingly, the only seeming requirement for female DJs these days is either having a celebrity parent, step parent, or sibling, or employment as a fashion PR rep with a laptop full of top forty tunes or “classics” they downloaded yesterday; but every once in a while, a really talented and authentic diamond brilliantly stands out in the rough and stands on her own merit, without exploiting the obvious. Enter Maya Jayne Coles — not only a DJ, but a damn good music producer! We love that she’s captured that big 90’s deep house vibe with her hit, “What They Say,” and are excited about all that she’s putting out. So to Maya Jayne Coles, we say something we rarely say to the new crop of DJ femmes out there, “You go, girl!”
Wim Wenders does it again — and better than ever — with his breathless and exalting 3-D hommage to late dance maestro and innovator, Pina Bausch. Bausch proved dance to be a powerfully evocative language of its own…and thus, this film should be watched and felt, rather than described by words, which would surely lose the essence in translation. PINA is a MUST-SEE! And, of course, as is always the case with Wenders, the soundtrack is absolutely perfect and brilliant. This is a masterpiece.
