    Rhadoo (Radu Cilinca) made his debut in 1995 and is one of the most promising acts in electronic music today. An accomplished DJ, his sound runs from deep, dubby House to uplifting and seductive Techno. He was one of the first Romanian DJs to break out internationally as a member of Sunrise Booking Agency roster with gigs at Club A and Studio Martin, Bucharest, Romania blossoming into stints at the East Power – Sankt Petersburg (Russia) and a residency at DC10 in Ibiza; not to mention his constant touring in Europe and his home country. Rhadoo has also proved himself as a producer, with releases on Cadenza Records and his own label [a:rpia:r] that he runs with his mates Raresh and Pedro aka Petre Inspirescu.

    Hallucination Recordings was founded in 1992 in Tampa, Florida by Monk and David Christophere. Originally used as a platform to release their music as Rabbit in the Moon, Hallucination Recordings has since released tracks by Jackal & Hyde, Beautiful Confusion, Soulrider, Second-Hand Satellites, Reverse Commuter, House Wrecka, and Pimp Juice. Hallucination has grown into one of the most well respected underground US labels, and now includes the imprints Hallucin8trax and Hallucination Limited. The first sister label, Hallucin8trax, specializing in the new-school version of old-school Chicago Hard House and Breaks, and striving to take off where legendary Chicago label U.C. (Under Construction) left off. Hallucination Limited was founded in 2003 by Pittsburgh-born, New York City-based DJ Three. Hallucination Limited serves as a label for Terry Francis, Phillip Charles, and Three himself, amongst others. The imprint borrows equally from vintage Acid-House, Techno and underground Electronica. As of 2010, a newly relaunched Hallucination Limited is officially a major player again with new music and mixes from Cheap & Deep, Butane, Gadi Mizrahi (Wolf & Lamb), Reverse Commuter, Sycophant Slags (Mr. C & Adultnapper), Seth Troxler & Inxec, and Peter Von Hoesen to name a few.

  • NEWS: BUSHWICK’S SECRET VENUE

    By Amanda Farah – BushwickBK.com

    When it was announced that Marissa Nadler was playing in Bushwick last week, almost as much buzz surrounded the venue as the artist. It was the first time many of us had heard of Envelope, a space that had held its first and only show in October. What led to further chattering was that the address of Envelope was only given to those who purchased tickets, and that those tickets were $30 — considered steep by “Bushwick standards.”

    In a neighborhood with more DIY than licensed music venues, Envelope presents a new approach to the homegrown experience. Envelope hosts only one show a month, with a capacity for only 60 guests. The rest of the time, it operates as a recording studio. Shows have been booked for the next 10 months, but at the moment there are no plans to expand performances beyond the once-monthly showcases.

  • REVIEWS: TENT CITY EAST VILLAGE

    Tompkins Square Park’s “Tent City,” partly seen above in the late 1980’s or early 1990’s, was a highly polarizing issue in the East Village. At times, the homeless settlement occupied as much as one-third of the entire park. [Read More]

  • NEWS: 80BLOCKS FROM TIFFANY DVD

    By Bille Jam – NewYork Post

    It was only 31 years ago that Gary Weis filmed his movie on South Bronx gang culture, 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s, but it seems like an eternity. “It was a whole different time and place. It was kind of like Dresden when I filmed there,” the director now says of the rubble-strewn, bombed-outlooking borough where he shot his gripping, gritty documentary in the summer of 1979.

    It was Koch-era New York when the South Bronx, one of the poorest areas in the nation, was such a rundown destitute place that both Presidents Carter and Reagan traveled there for photo ops to exemplify the most striking symbol they could find of urban decay in America. It was also the time and place when the subways were covered in graffiti and when a new music and culture called hip-hop was taking root in the “Boogie Down” Bronx. [Read More]
