here I am playing at Horsemeat disco i the early 2000’s. i played there 3 times including their opening night in Soho as well as the opening night in Vauxhall. There’s also a photo here from club 303 and then in my home studio just down the street from where I’ll be playing May 12th at The Macbeth , 70 Hoxton street with the Pussy Faggot Possee. I’m still playing disco, 80’s house, acid, and some punk!. -www.ladykier.com
“female:pressure is an international network of over 1300 female artists from 64 countries in the wider fields of electronic music. This blog was inspired by Bjork’s Pitchfork article in January 2015 where she notes the lack of photographic documentation of women at work in the studio.
Here we offer a visual catalogue of female producers, DJ’s, media artists and electronic music performers at work. These are not our press photos. This is a collective effort to demonstrate women and their use of technology in music and media production. Contributions welcome!
Named one of Miami’s “Top 10 Female DJs”, Bonnie Beats is a modern day renaissance woman (scientist, musical chameleon, and fashionista). The tech nerd turned – tastemaker – turned – super talent, is one of Miami’s rising stars. Raised on the sounds of Caribbean soul, Latin Jazz, and Motown, this young and ambitious DJ/Producer is all about taking you to that “feel good place.” A craftsman whose ambivalent to the term “commercial,” draws her inspiration from the first sightings of House including French House, Deep House, UKG and Jack, straight to earlier dance influences such as old funk, and early dubs. All of course, tying into a night of dance reminiscent to the early undergrounds sounds of New York disco-style clubs.
Tagged by The New Times as a “local powerhouse” she’s played alongside The Smith’s Andy Rourke and has shared nights with artists of all walks such as Talib Kweli, Jacques Renault, Neon Indian, Icona Pop, Thievery Corporation, Fred Falke and more.
Her impeccable sense of style only adds to her audacious flare which is why MTV Networks, Bacardi USA, Redbull Soundstage, and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, to name a few, all hail her as their “go to“ DJ for private Miami events.
In 2010 Bonnie began her music and fashion blog recognized by Vice Magazine, Behind Color Bars to continue to educate her local community and abroad about all things cutting edge. It was this consistent message that gained Bonnie the street cred reserved for only those who create movements. Recognition of her unique style got her an invitation to join the independent cast and crew of Nightdrive Miami, and Wynwood Radio where she was asked to pilot her own show called, “ BCB presents: The Bailout” and “Sample City.”
In the past, Bonnie Beats has held residencies at renowned venues such as The Vagabond, Purdy Lounge, and W Hotels among others, and can currently be found throughout Miami playing at spots such as Bardot, Electric Pickle and Grand Central.
