Its so nice to spend the evening going through music and getting back to a writing zone, I’ve neglected my lovely little blog for some time now. I’m gearing up to start focusing on it again as well as some upcoming interviews. Here is an interview I am dying to do…as soon as I can find this damn man!
One of my favorite new producer/remixers reppin’ Isreal the mysterious synth King, Shai Vardi aka Virgin Magnetic Material. I haven’t fallen so madly in love with a remixers signature style in quite a while. He offers everything I crave when it comes to this kind of vibe…old meets sleek and new, 80s meets NuDisco meets New Wave with an molasses electric feel.
For those of you who are 80’s dark wave babies, here’s one of my favorites of then and now courtesy of Mr. Vardi…
KILLING MOON - ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN (VIRGIN MAGNETIC MATERIAL REMIX)
I have been researching this man for at least six months now, searching for a way to download and or buy his redonkulous catalog of remixes and to no avail except for two songs that were part of a UK compilation via JUNO Records which I quickly bought.
I am determined to interview him he’s far too talented to go unnoticed by the vast sea of true music lover out there.
His Soundcloud is filled with dreamy gems and finally there is an actual mix to download…
Watch out ladies, you’ll get pregnant off the first listen, its that sexy. Download his incredible mix HERE
HUGE shout out to Langdon Flynn PR and everyone that came out and supported a very special event we put together last night at Insert Coin(s), downtown Las Vegas.

The art work was incredible and the vibe was amazing thanks to our other “featured artist” DJ LEFTO, not only one of my favorite DJs but such an amazingly interesting and understated dude.
Invited guests took full advantage of our intimate but awesome Silent Auction in which 100% of the proceeds went to our to featured charities; Heaven Can Wait Animal Society
and The Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. My friend and Moet/Hennessy Brand Manager Jey Hall scooped up a handful of the Silent Auction items while hosting a “Hennessy Black Ops” (one of my favorite drinks at Insert Coin(s)) open bar all night.

A few years ago Porsche booked me for their store opening at Crystals in Las Vegas. I guess they dug me because three years later I got a call to do the 40th Anniversary event in Los Angeles. What a remarkable event, I was thrilled to be a part of it. It was a two day event celebrating the 40 year history of the brand held at the Sheats Goldstein house which is tucked snugglyin the side of a mountain overlooking the entire city. They took amazing care of me and it was nice to go home to LA for a couple of days. Doing these kinds of events is really what its all about. I was able to play amazing music for an international clientele and be a part of an historic event for Porsche Design in which they showcased the launch of the 2013 spring women’s line with newly appointed Creative Director, (the former Creative Director of Eli Saab), Thomas Steinbruck
This piece from WWD post event explains the event it greater detail…
PORSCHE REVS UP WOMEN’S: Porsche Design celebrated its 40th anniversary in Los Angeles Tuesday night at the Sheats Goldstein house designed by John Lautner. The brand, which originally comprised both men’s and women’s collections (the iconic aviator glasses were originally designed for women), is relaunching its women’s offerings with apparel, shoes and handbags, some of which debuted last night during a fashion presentation and on hostess Kate Beckinsale, who carried the Twin bag in white. Other iconic pieces ranging from knives to watches were displayed throughout the home all evening, and the brand plans a formal show of the men’s and women’s collection in New York on Saturday.
“We wanted to do a kind of MoMA for Porsche Design in this house,” said ceo Juergen Gessler. “Our first retail store in the U.S. opened on Rodeo Drive in 1991, and L.A. is our biggest market in the U.S., so we wanted to do an event here. Retail is very much a focus in the future.” After the New York show, all the pieces will be available in Porsche Designs’ 120 stores worldwide.”
The icing on the cake was the return of my much beloved YOKO ONO Porsche glasses which Porsche had gifted me when I did the first event with them in 2008 in Las Vegas. They were my favorite glasses and unfortunately some one stole them a couple of years ago. Thank you Porsche for an incredible experience and these amazing glasses!
Here are some pictures from the event…
Day 1 - VIP/Press Event
Day 2 - client event
and on top of it all I got to spend the evening with two of my best friends Adriane Jamison and Darrell Gervasi…a perfect trip!
