I hit the road in a few days for Germany, France and Norway. If you have any friends in those parts, send them my way! Or if you know of any primo food, cocktail or coffee spots, let me know. And Winnipeg, I’ll be back soon for more dance parties. Thanks to everyone who came and danced their pants off at our House of Gold Diamonds party “Ain’t Nuthin’ but a She Thing!” That may have been the best thing I’ve ever seen.

All Divas. All Night.

My friend and partner in all things fabulous, DJ J. Jackson, and I are throwing another all-diva dance party later this month, and you should come! We’ll be playing all of our favourite tunes from divas through the ages, from Aretha and Tina, to Missy and Lauryn, to Robyn and Janelle. Plus, we have a [...]

The Winnipeg Fringe Festival!

Okay. I’ve mentioned this project called SPEECHLESS before. Last month I went to South America for three and a half weeks to perform with Daniel Orrantia and Felipe Ortiz (both from Bogotá’s La Gata Cirko and Picnic Impro) in our collaboration called SPEECHLESS. Daniel and Felipe are incredible, expressive performers who combine physical theatre, long-form [...]

2014 Winnipeg Jazz Festival

I have the pleasure of doing a DJ set after Truth & Soul Records (Lee Fields, El Michels Affair) artist LADY. It happens this Thursday, June 19th, at Union Sound Hall in Winnipeg, put on by the Winnipeg Jazz Festival. Come watch an opening set by Winnipeg’s The Catamounts, followed by Lady performing really great [...]

So many thank yous.

Last night I flew back home after three and a half weeks in South America. I went to Bogotá, Colombia and São Paulo, Brazil to perform in my three-person theatre project called SPEECHLESS. I create an improvised soundtrack on my turntables, while the two very talented improvisers and circus performers — Felipe Ortiz and Daniel [...]

Hello Bogotá!

I am over the moon excited to perform in Bogotá tonight! For those that don’t know about Speechless, the project that has taken me to Colombia: It’s a long-form improvised theatre show with Daniel Orrantia and Felipe Ortiz of Picnic Improvisación Teatral. I improvise the soundtrack with turntables while they make magic on stage. I’m so honoured to [...]

My radio show is a teenager!

Somehow thirteen years have passed since I first walked into the CKUW studio and tried my hand at making radio. Stylus Radio began on May 8th, 2001 as a music magazine show (i.e. we did a lot of interviews and reviews) and I had two co-hosts: Tom Wilson and Matt Hannam (shout outs to you [...]

House of Gold Diamonds is here.

I am so pleased to announce that my party-making, butt-shaking, lip-synching collaborative DJ duo project with DJ J. Jackson has finally got its own web presence. When we DJ together we are known as House of Gold Diamonds. We threw our first party together in 2012 at the now-defunct (but still loved) Lo Pub. It [...]

Whitney, Janet, Mariah and more!

Two years ago, I threw a very special dance party with a brand-new DJ partner, DJ J. Jackson. The party was called “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and it filled up the beloved Lo Pub with dancers and music and sweat. We played only music by the great divas like Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson and [...]

A DJ Recital Is a Beautiful Thing.

  Wow. I’m full to the brim with warm feelings. Twelve students from the most recent beginner course at my DJ Academy for All Women had their debut this past International Women’s Day (March 8th). It was a hit! They scratched, beatmatched, blended songs together in tight 15-minute sets. They bravely played to a full [...]
