The Black Madonna is the hero we don’t deserve; scamming the scammersBlack Madonna SS17 Thursday SOLOVOV 7645

Many artists claim that they would do anything for their fans, but few have gone as far as The Black Madonna. After finding out that people were scamming her fans with fake tickets to her Saturday night show at Lot 613 in Los Angeles, the Chicago-based DJ took matters into her own hand, going undercover to foil the plans of the scammer.

Approaching an account that had been stealing money from her fans, The Black Madonna posed as a fellow raver looking to buy tickets to her own show. When asked for payment, she revealed herself as the night’s highly-anticipated headliner and reported the scammer to both CashApp and the authorities. The interaction, seen below, ended with The Black Madonna guest-listing the victims of the scam and sending out a warning to future scammers – don’t mess with The Black Madonna, or she will find you, come for you, and call the police.

Underground electronic event curators Teksupport have announced a slew of new performances to take place in New York City through the end of 2018. Among those event announcements are two projects to debut at each of their events, one of those being Âme || Âme, from the German production duo of the same name. The show, a hybrid between DJ set and live performance, has been on the circuit in Europe, but the Innervisions label heads will debut the show in America on December 14.

The entirely new project Teksupport is ushering into the NYC scene is in the form of a new duo from two leading artists in their field. The Black Madonna — a DJ who has become more and more respected across underground circles since her debut in 2014 — and Honey Dijon – a house and fashion icon in her own right – will partner up on a unique b2b performance. Under a new name Black Honey, the two will make house history for their first gig at The Black Madonna’s We Still Believe Party that will hit 99 Scott in Brooklyn on September 28.

Although it was released nearly five years ago, Grand Theft Auto V keeps finding ways to make their game exciting and relevant via additions to the game’s to online play. In GTA‘s newest expansion, GTA Online: After Hours, Rockstar Games revives an old fan-favorite character, Tony Prince, the exuberant nightclub owner from Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony. In the trailer, the game’s newest digital resident, The Black Madonna, seems to be adopting to GTA life quite well, delivering a sweet sucker punch to a police officer who was probably just trying to shut down a rave. Either way, if The Black Madonna is laying down a hay maker, whoever is on the receiving end probably had it coming.

Bringing the gameplay back into Tony’s nightclubs, the update allows players to operate and develop the city’s hottest dance music locations, as well as a massive criminal enterprise. Grand Theft Auto V, a game already known for it’s stellar soundtrack featuring the likes of Flying Lotus and Tyler the Creator, brings in dance music icons like Solomun, Dixon, and Tale of Us. The GTA Online: After Hours expansion will be available to players online around the world on July 24.

Rockstar Games added nightclubs in the Los Angeles-inspired Los Santos on its award winning video game, Grand Theft Auto V. They’ve also announce residencies in the virtual world from some of the biggest underground house and techno stars: Solomun, Dixon, Black Madonna, and Tale of Us. Earlier, we were teased about their potential cameo appearances in GTA when mysterious promo began popping up on each act’s respective social media channels.

In July, gamers will have the opportunity to hear new, exclusive sets from the resident DJs. Nightclubs are perfect covers for certain operations one might conduct in the vice-ridden video game. Learning how to run a nightclub with some of the best DJ sets in the industry sounds like a house head/gamer’s dream.

The video below is the teaser video showing the DJs likenesses in the game, including those signature Solomun dance hands. With the direction of technology in the world today, virtual DJs will be more than just the mixing software.

Groove & love are at a high in The Black Madonna’s second BBC Radio 1 residency installment

This post was originally published on this site


The Black Madonna — or as many know her, “the riot girrrl” of dance music — has dropped by the BBC Radio 1 decks and served up her second residency installment.

In just over an hour Marea Stamper delights in a beautiful amalgamation of funk, disco, soul, electro, and Italo.

Stamper’s in excellent form behind the decks, hinting at an absolute airway domination till the month of June. She’s piquing the interest of listeners in the sublime worlds of disco, funk, and more with a sweet and subtle educational gospel of love and appreciation for each genre’s respective pioneers.

She delves right into the funk as she drops off Masterstroke’s “Speak the Truth” and then invites listeners to join her on the global express where she moves to the late and great Nigerian William Onyeabor’s African dance classic “Better Change Your Mind.”

Before Stamper leaves the mix, she leaves listeners with the latest selection of her “History of the World” installment, where she pays homage to MFSB, or Mother Father Sister Brother and their monumental work of art “Love Is The Message.” It’s a tune that “transcends every other dance record ever made,” Stamper says.

“This record has been a hymn, a rabbit hole, and the key which unlocked a lifelong love of disco and I’m not alone. Few records have been sliced and diced by as many sample warriors or have exerted as much influence as this next one.”

She continues, “Love Is the Message transcends not only the sound of Philadelphia, but for my money, virtually every other dance record ever made. Its towering movements, bringing strings, and keys, and more to the front defines and surpasses the word iconic.”

The Black Madonna will continue to grace the BBC Radio 1 airways with crate classics through the month of June.
