With the spring and summer party season just around the corner things have been heating up in not only Detroit but the Midwest in general. You have MOVEMENT coming. Tech-troit is back., shout out to DJ Roach. Chosen Few (Chicago) Charivari, House in the Park (Atlanta) & The Summer Oasis glamping event.
With me is where you wanna stay for all the happenings around these parts. I'm sure our scene will have something for everyone to love and enjoy.
But this Blog isn't about the up and coming events. This Blog is about an eventful night at Motor City Wine.
The night the siblings came in and shook the building to its foundation.
That happens a lot at MCW, they bring the best of the best talent, and have love and show love for everyone. Dave and Melissa welcome ALL the little wine bar on Michigan Ave has become a village, where all are treated with respect, kindness, good vibes, awesome talent, and a human unicorn who spreads rainbow kisses and sunshine smiles.
Sounds like a musical fairytale utopia..well, that's because it is!
Many Kings and Queens have stepped into the Kingdom of Wine and Dance and graced us all with their DJ stylings. Last night was NO exception.
She has two names..Princess Nicole/Queen Nicky. She has the face of a Princess and the power of a Queen! The Princess is sweet somewhat demure, kind, and is pure of heart. However..Queen Nicky OH!! She is a royal and regal bad ass! She spins the music and the crowd. She controls the decks like a Queen controls her subjects!
You gets NOTHING but a beat down with the Queen! And no matter what the Queen does, we keep coming back. Because we know, with all of her power and disrespectful nature we love her. We need her. We admire her!
The Princess/Queen hails from the land of The Chi. aka Chicago where House music was born. She met a nice young man who would become not only her mentor but her partner in life for life! It was he who taught her how to be a DJ bad ass.. And I like to think she took over the throne and became the ruler of Morrisonland!
Don't get me wrong. The Royal husband/teacher is a bad mofo as well..but we ain't talkin bout him today. Just a back story to the real story.
Queen Nicky walked into our lives at MIX (known as LIV back then) she was so out cold, as she turned back into her alter ego Princess self people threw roses at her feet. We have loved her since day one.
Earl spotted something in her (don't know what it is/was ya gotta ask him about that) nonetheless something in him knew Queen Nicky would work well with his style of playin. And as time went on they developed a bond. A sibling like bond. But on the decks even Earl knew Queen Nicky would be a rivalry...sibling rivalry was born. (Y'all...they even have matching t-shirts)
I've seen DJs play together like well oiled machines. And I've heard some of the best. Alan King and Wayne Williams. Jamie 3:26 and Marcellus Pittman. Glenn Underground and Boo Williams. Taz and Minx. DJ Soule (I may have spelled that wrong) and Tom Linder. Rick Wilhite and Eddie (I call him Edward) Fowlkes. Norm Talley and Mike Huckaby. Norm and Delano, even Jon Easley and Raybone Jones! I mean I've seen some really heavy hitter flow together like water.
But when it comes to Earl and Nicky there is a distinct difference. They become one always looking out for each other. Their playing styles compliment each other.
I've only heard Queen Nicky and the Royal husband play together once and they too are a force to be reckoned with.
The energy was on super high overload last night. Starting with DJ Righteous aka Demetrius Orr.
...lemme pause here. Demetrius is not an up and coming DJ he...has arrived! I've seen that brother keep the dance floor on swole for 4 hours straight! And by 8:30 DJ Righteous Knowledge had folks feet hurting. He plays like a DJ should. He brings you nothing but good vibes both behind and away from the decks
I think that's the motto for this years spring/summer party season "good vibes".
ANYWHO...back to not about Demetrius -insert big stupid grin.
Now its a well known fact that when Earl puts on a party he will give 200% plus but when he's with Nicky, yeah double that percentage. Both are Scopios so ya already know they are going to try an out do each other. (All in fun and for the sake of the music and the crowd)
And last night...BAYBEE when EMixxin left Queen Nicky to touch her subjects. Some from as far away as Ann Arbor. She took total control.
There was ZERO room on the dance floor. The people couldn't get enough. Then she has the nerve (in the middle of a mix I might add) to pour herself a glass of what I thought was wine. Drink it, with her pinky in the air. Come BACK to the tables and ride that blend like the Queen she is!
You see..Princesses are sweet. Queens take control. They give you what you need and give you what THEY want!
...and the people danced! And they loved her! As long as this thing called House exist. She will undoubtedly be one of its Queenly Royal court!
We have so many Queens, but last night..the only one that mattered. Was a pretty girl from the land of hustle and flow, who turns from Princess to Queen at the sound of the 1st beat!
She will continue to...
Let The Music Play
