• REVIEWS: DON HILL’S NOW AND THEN

    By Matt Harvey – NY Press

    Back in September, nightlife blogs buzzed with sweeping pronouncements about the impact a rebranded Don Hill’s— the two-decades-old Greenwich Street institution newly reopened with capital provided by club mavens Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny—would have on the moribund Manhattan demimonde. Setting the tone for the blitz, Khan told one local paper, “There hasn’t been a CBGB’s or a Max’s or a Mudd Club in so long.” In the same article, Sevigny wondered how “hotel bars [had become the new] cool places to be in New York City.”

    So the partnership between the world-weary, blessedly still standing Don Hill (who has provided on-the-scene, drink-in-hand management at high-profile nightspots since he helmed the Cat Club in the mid-1980s) and the dynamic two late-aughties entrepreneurs would rescue Manhattan from the clutches of such influential, glitzy spots as, well Khan’s Rose Bar, which sits in the Gramercy Hotel. (Just this week, Khan announced he would no longer work with the upscale club.) [Read More]

  • NEWS: R.I.P. TEENA MARIE

    By Ben Seario – NY Times

    Teena Marie, a singer whose funky hits in the 1980s, like “Lovergirl”and “Square Biz,” made her one of the few white performers to consistently find success on the rhythm-and-blues charts, died on Sunday at her home in Pasadena, Calif. She was 54.

    The cause was not immediately known, but The Associated Press reported that the authorities said she appeared to have died of natural causes.

    Born Mary Christine Brockert in Santa Monica, Calif., on March 5, 1956, she grew up in a predominantly black area of nearby Venice, Calif., and began singing and acting while still a child. At age 8, she tap-danced for Jed Clampett on an episode of “The Beverly Hillbillies,” under the name Tina Marie Brockert. [Read More]

    Golden Child

    Hailing from Fort Greene, Brooklyn, Golden’s passion for music came at a very early age. Being exposed and going to clubs in the early ’90s literally spending his checks on music alone, DJing was his calling. His musical influences are deeply rooted in Hip-Hop, R&B, ’70s Funk, Rare Groove and Disco. At 17, he traveled to London and strongly followed the Jungle / Drum & Bass scene while working at an underground radio station where he met his mentors and favorite DJs. He got his first big break at 19 as a guest DJ at Webster Hall. Since then he has played New York’s finest clubs such as Shelter, APT, The Cooler, Sapphire, Baktun, The Lunatarium and the list goes on. Golden Child spins across the board from Drum & Bass Hip-Hop / R&B, Reggae, House, Dance Classics and Rare Grooves.
