Move over, Nicki Minaj. Out of the way, Miley: this 23-year-old Aussie rapper and model is taking the music business-- and the world--by storm. She's opening for Beyonce and has collaborated with rapper T. I., on her debut album The New Classic, due out later this month. Tonight she takes the stage with nightlife icon Susanne Bartsch, who rose to prominence in the late 80s for hosting lavish parties at the Copacabana, and gay journalist and entertainment writer Brandon Voss. In anticipation for her album's release, Iggy will be performing her single "Change Your Life" for Thursday night's Catwalk.
Their debut single, "I love It," premeired in the USA on HBO's hit show Girls, and has ever since taken over the radiowaves. With its cathcy hook, fun lyrics, and unique sound, the song has made its way on to all of our playlists, with 2 million sales in the US, a Top 5 on iTunes, all which has led them to land a performance at the world famous Madison Square Garden.
Tonight, New York City gets to experience one of the absolute legends of the American house scene, Mark Farina, at the internationally renowned club Marquee. With locations in Sydney, Australia, Las Vegas, and now New York City, Marquee has everything one could ask for in a swanky nightclub: two levels, multiple bars, leather couches, and a Funktion One soundsystem to provide the crispest sounds available to club-goers. More important than the aesthetics and soundsystem though, is the DJ in the booth, and Farina is one of the best anyone could ask for.
After developing an interest in the Chicago's house scene in Chicago, where resided during the late 1980s, Farina began experimenting with the art of DJing himself. Oftentimes he was found spinning sounds like old school disco and hip hop of the early/mid 1990s that were not seeing any time in local clubs. With several years of experience on the decks, the 90s saw him develop his own style known as "mushroom jazz." By taking the downtempo sounds of acid jazz and fusing them with the West Coast's organic hip hop he created a completely original sound that helped launch him into worldwide stardom, which has lasted the better part of two decades. Now living in San Francisco, Farina's fusion of old school house from his hometown of Chicago and new school west coast grooves continue to gain him recognition alongside top DJs from across the globe. Do not miss the chance to see this living legend take over one of New York City's hottest venues, and be sure to bring your dancing shoes--his sets have been known to top eight hours on a good night.
Late last week, some of our favorite celebs stepped out in New York City to celebrate the Season 3 premiere of Master of the Mix, hosted by Smirnoff Vodka and VH1. Master of the Mix, for those of you who don't know, is a VH1 reality show where DJs battle head-to-head to earn the title of Master of the Mix and a $250,000 grand prize. The premiere party took place at the newly reopened Marquee Nightclub in NYC where guests sipped on signature Smirnoff cocktails, including the Vinyl Collection, The Backspin, and more. The party kicked off with an official welcome from the show's host Amanda Seales, followed by a super trailer of the season. Master of the Mix judge DJ Mia Moretti hit the 1s and 2s accompanied by electric violinist Caitlin Moe, followed by DJ Kid Capri, also a judge on the show. Other celebs in attendence at the event were fashion designers Charlotte Ronson and Christian Siriano, as well as Corey Kennedy, Sway Calloway, and others. Check out the party pics below!
The notion that dance music and the DJ revolution is a fad of our generation could just be that. A fad. But at the moment, both are still a thing, a very big thing in fact. From Ibiza to Miami to right here in our beloved city of NYC, the club scene is thriving more than ever and the city that never sleeps is also about to get in on that "super club" bandwagon. The city is about to get an amenable makeover with the word that a few new hot spots will be opening in the year ahead.
One in particular will be the newest venture and parternship of EMM Group's, Eugene Remm, Mark Birnbaum, and Michael Hirtenstein, and RPM Worldwide's Eddie Dean and Rob Fernandez. The powerhouse forces of the hospitality and nightlife company along with the brains behind the infamous Pacha NYC are introducing FINALE, a 6,000 square foot club that will boast a multi-faceted experience by incorporating avant-garde performers, lined top-to-bottom in tufted blue leather to house a state-of-the-art Void Acoustic sound system along with innovative video and lighting.
