• SESSION 862: THE BANDWAGON 02.16.11

    Mixed by Shadi Megall & Taimur Agha


    Shadi Megallaa
    The newest Techno guru on team halcyon, Shadi was raised in Abu Dhabi where there wasn’t much electronic music culture to be had. He caught the DJ bug while studying Architecture in Lawrence, Kansas circa ’97 and was producing his own music by 2000. His first release came out on respected Danish imprint Tic Tac Toe and was followed by tunes forKalimari, Produkt Schallplatten, and Dilek amongst others. Along the way Shadi made a major contribution to the fledgling underground scene in his home town with the Boogie Box party, founded in co-horts with buddy Hassan Alwan of the Buy You Sell Me label. A full length for Igloo Pop recorded while living in Zurich stands as Shadi’s proudest musical achievement thus far, but a slew of new productions completed since he relocated to Brooklyn earlier this year are set for 2011 release, making Shadi a hot producer to watch.

  • NEWS: PUNK AND HIPHOP @ MORRISON HOTEL GALLERY

    By Glenwood

    Legendary music photographers Janette Beckman and David Corio (left and right, below) have an excellent exhibition going on now at the Morrison Hotel Gallery on Bowery, right next to the old CBGB (which is now a John Varvatos outlet), and if you were alive and in love with music in the late 1970s and 1980s, it’s kind of a must-see show. Titled Catch the Beat: The Roots of Punk and Hip Hop Photography, Beckman and Corio’s exhibition features scads of insanely great images–some familiar, many of which we had never before seen–of the icons of the era.

    Here, for example, are Public Enemy, from the mid ’80s, posing in an unlikely rural setting. Corio, who was on hand at the Morrison Hotel Gallery and, even better, was nice enough to chat with us a bit, told us that the shot was actually taken in Hyde Park, and that he had to hold back the suits just trying to walk through the park on the way to the office, and who had no clue who Chuck D, Flava Flav, Terminator X and the S1Ws were, other than a crew of oddly dressed young men making them late for work. Corio’s portrait of Biz Markie (below) flashing his chains is a great photograph, too (we had the pleasure of shaking Markie’s hand back in the mid-’80s, and he couldn’t have been more pleasant… nor more HUGE), as is his silhouetted shot of Afrika Bambaataa, scratching in London.

  • NEWS: R.I.P. LOLEATTA HOLLOWAY

    By JON PARELESNY Times

    Loleatta Holloway, a gospel-charged disco singer whose 1980 hit“Love Sensation” had a long afterlife when fragments of it were used in later hits, died Monday in a suburban Chicago hospital. She was 64 and lived in Chicago.

    She died after slipping into a coma after a brief illness, her manager, Ron Richardson, said in a statement.

    Ms. Holloway was born in 1946 and grew up singing in gospel groups, including her mother’s Holloway Community Singers choir. From 1967 to 1971 she sang in one of gospel’s most respected groups, the Caravans, led by Albertina Walker. She then turned to secular music, bringing the raspy fervor and airborne whoops of her gospel performances to songs about desire. [Read More]
