ADVENT 2016 #04 – THE BLACK MADONNA

Last night I had the pleasure to see The Black Madonna play at London’s Chaper 10 party. She threw down a two hour, hand’s-in-the-air, full-throttle, high-energy DJ set, traversing between disco, italo, house and splatterings of Acid. The crowd went bonkers and when she turned around and drew a heart on the steamed up window behind her, it confirmed to me why she firmly steals a place as one of my top DJ’s of all time. The Love, joy and passion she exudes when she plays is expressed in her music and fills the room, but not only does she spread positive vibes on the dancefloor, but uses her voice to fight for diversity and equality within the music field and beyond. The Black Madonna is a true pioneer, she’s breaking moulds, breaking boundaries and spreading a whole lotta love. The last few years she’s propelled into the limelight and this year, following a busy European festival circut schedule, she returned to the US for her most extensive US tour yet, proving she’s just going from strength to strength.

The Black Madonna is more renowned for her DJ sets, than her production’s, but while they may be less frequent, they’re equally as incredible and infectious, she takes a ‘less is more’ approach to her releases and chooses quality over quantity. This November saw the release of her first solo record in two years. The now sold out ‘”He Is The Voice I Hear” is a banging 11-minute, single-sided 12-inch with an etching on the other side, sadly we can’t bring you the stream for that (although you can have a listen HERE) , however her remix of Tiga’s ‘Blonde’s Have More Fun’ released back in August has been getting some serious airplay from the Lipstick Disco crew, so we’re giving you this one to spin for day 4 of our advent.
