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!
