This Halloween, Supermarket Creative and Gen Art reel back an 8mm roll of decadent nostalgia. No rest for the wicked or the camera shy in â€œTHE OTHER HOLLYWOODâ€¦Where 1972â€ is resurrected in the name of disco and how America turned blue.
When Smut had Strut; Chick-a-wa-wa.
A collaborative effort by Missoni Home, American Apparel, Nue Studio & Jessica Bosch of Ford Artists, be prepared to get a spoonful of sleaze and glamor. Enjoy a sneak peak of the making behind â€œThe Old Hollywoodâ€¦1972â€³ with decor and styling reminiscent of a vintage XXX movie set. Miami performer, Jose El Rey plays Dirk the Director & Brittany Norris as Luscious Linda. Guest actors (you!) will enjoy the clipsâ€¦the morning after.
Son of Sound + Drrty Haze
Like-minded DJs Henry Maldonado (Son of Sound/Speak Recordings), Doug Gomez (Drrtyhaze) pay tribute to this era with Play It Loud/Speak Recordings. â€œPlay it Loud! is an event that celebrates New York club and art culture during its golden-area run in the 70d late 80â€™s. While there is certainly no shortage of disco and post-disco nostalgia-fueled gatherings these days, Gomez, Maldonado come together to help reinforce the musical integrity and vibe of disco.â€
Jose El Ray
â€œOld-school bros, roller rink queens, Wynwood hipstersthey all worship at the altar of this ladiesâ€™-man shaman. Seriously â€“ so many girls jump onstage to shake their shit that El Reyâ€™s trusty security sidekick, El Tigre, often has to lay the smack down, for real. The king has scored shout-outs from Perez Hilton and a recent full-page interview in Maxim en EspaÃ±ol, as well as an appearance (as part of the Miami Bass Warriors group) at the holy grail of local Latin culture: the Calle Ocho Festival. Jose El Rey loves Miami, and Miami loves him right back.â€ â€“ New Times
â€œWith their infectious rhythms and dance-a-licious beats, Afrobetaâ€™s songs are classic yet modern, borderline underground yet so Billboard chart-friendly. Cristina â€œCuci Amadorâ€ Garcia pop sensibility resonates throught a blend of bilingual proficiencies that even Shakira might covet, while Tony â€œSmurphioâ€ Laurencio burns holes through his Moog keyboards with funky fire. It wouldnâ€™t be surprised to find Afrobeta writing songs for Madonna or even M.I.A. But for now, Miami is lucky to have the duo performing on a regular basis; the two are a match made in disco-house heaven.â€ New times. Miami Best Local songwriters 2008.
