Relive the magic from a special lover’s edition Purple Trax Label Night, vday 2016. Includes a stellar live set by A Pleasure, who went deep on porn samples for the occasion, and a fantastic dj set by WM fam Jan Woo, in top form and punctuated by the whoops and shouts of a packed crowd driven into a frenzy. Thank you all for being adventurous enough to allow such excursions time and time again. A couple of foggy pics below, featuring a cameo by our vday cupid. Next one March 24!

WM LIVE: Slava, Terekke & Sasha, Malory, Hand of God

Sasha Desree & Terekke

This past Sunday saw us waving off the summer with one last S!CK MAGIC bbq, this time live-style, with an intimate group of friends treated to a series of home-grown hardware sets and a few surprises. Slava, fresh back from Russia, was set to do a dj/live hybrid, but set the cdjs aside in favor of a rare 45-min suite of new tracks. Terekke and Sasha got into an unplanned live jam and went so deep they had no idea they had played for over an hour (it really gets going around the 26: mark). Meanwhile, Malory and Hand of God, both on Godmode, dropped homespun techno that had people spilling their mustard. Thanks to the artists for letting us share these, because who are we to keep them to ourselves..


AUDIOVISUAL: Discwoman 1-year Anniversary

IMG_7656

Discwoman took over Bossa Nova Civic Club this past Saturday for their one-year, and we’ve got the recordings and visual evidance. In just one year, local fire starters Frankie Hutchinson, Umfang, and Christine Tran (who also is behind the events for Chromat and Witches of Bushwick) have thrown a bright, much-needed spotlight on female-identifying DJs, signing local and international artists to their roster, traveling throughout the US and Canada, and throwing events from Brooklyn to Movement in Detroit and beyond. It has all led up to the craziest turnout that Bossa Nova has likely seen in its 3-year lifespan, brought about by a group hell-bent on challenging gender stereotypes in music.

What resulted was an undeniable vibe, and a perfectly curated genre-bending music blend. Juliana Huxtable, who made a Weird Magic mix of her own recently, went possibly harder than we’ve ever seen her before, dropping WM favorite “Feel it in the Air” and her own Bjork remix, while Honey Dijon brought a set of well-blent classics that culminated in her mouthing the words to “Baby Wants to Ride” by Frankie Knuckles while clutching the discoball and watching everybody freak.

Big ups Discwoman!
