In June of 2008 I was introduced to Mark Lowe & Christian Leonard by my dear friend Elon Ka.
Plans for a revolutionary and visionary nightclub never seen before in South Florida were in the works, and a top secret space was being transformed behind the scenes.
As Teaser ads circulated all over South Florida Media outlets a few months later, speculation on how the brand new nightclub would fare in downtown Fort Lauderdale, a space that had become almost vacant and rarely frequented. Rumors and catcalls swirled throughout the club chatrooms and forums claiming that the club would not last 3 months.
Alot of the nightlife scene had become stagnant in South Florida for both the GLBT/Alternative community as well as the Mainstream markets. People were bored, and were looking for something new.
In September 2008 our Grand opening day was announced: October 17, 2008.
As I geared up for what would promise to be one my most prolific and high profile residencies of my career, the buzz surrounding LIVING ROOM NIGHTCLUB was extraordinary. Our Grand opening Night Broke all expectations and Thousands of eager and curious nightclub aficionados rushed the space for what would be the beginning of an evolution in nightlife like South Florida had never seen.
I can not describe the feeling when we opened our doors and Thousands of people rushed in to see the Gorgeous high art moodscape based space that can only be described as an organic living breathing work of art , The Brainchild of Mark Lowe who up to that point had an amazing carreer as an industrial designer and architect. LIVING ROOM NIGHTCLUB faced all odds and delivered. An unstoppable force , we contined to change the scope and raise the bar on a weekly basis, breaking ground over and over again and setting a new standard on what nightclub goers should expect along with an unprecedented level of customer service, top notch entertainment and mindblowing themes.
For 3 years I have held my residency and experienced what a REAL party was all about, Ive met thousands of people, rubbed elbows with a plethora of celebrities and have a bevy of cherished memories that I will take with me for the rest of my days.
I want to thank everyone for their loyalty, support, and patronage on this journey. To all the staff Members, peers, bartenders, barbacks, security, Door personnel, my divas, our VIP hosts, Fellow DJs, Live Singers, promoters and everyone who has ever had a role in making LIVING ROOM NIGHTCLUB the number 1 nightclub in South Florida. Thank you.
A Special Thank you to Elon and Mark for allowing me to grow creatively and to show the world what I was capable of and growing artistically every step of the way. I invite everyone to come out tonight 11-11-11. 11:11:11 to Toast to 3 years of stellar entertainment and memories.
One Door to a LIVING ROOM May Close, but a gateway to an entire HOUSE awaits….More info coming soon!

NEWSFLASH: First Ever “CELEBRATE ORGULLO” to showcase LGBT Hispanic Pride During Hispanic Heritage Month, Saturday October 1, 2011 on Miami Beach
From Sharon Kersten, Kersten Communications:
FIRST-EVER “CELEBRATE ORGULLO®” TO SHOWCASE LGBT HISPANIC PRIDE
DURING HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1 ON MIAMI BEACH
On Saturday, October 1, the first-ever “Celebrate Orgullo®” event will take place in Lummus Park on Miami Beach. “Orgullo” is Spanish for “Pride,” and this event celebrates the diverse cultural heritage and contributions of South Florida’s LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Hispanic community
The event, taking place from noon until 6 pm at Lummus Park, between 10th and 11th Streets Miami Beach, will feature musical performances, folkloric dance, celebrity guests, drag performers, refreshments and vendor booths representing the both the non-profit and business community.
Since 1988, Americans have observed Hispanic Heritage Month – September 15 to October 15 – celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of those whose ancestors came from Central and South America, Spain, Mexico or the Caribbean. With Hispanics in Miami-Dade County comprising 65% of the total population, (2010 U.S. Census), Hispanic Heritage Month is widely popular in South Florida, with a myriad of events taking place throughout the month long celebration. As evidenced by the more than 40,000 people who turned out for Miami Beach Gay Pride this past April, there are a significant amount of LGBT and LGBT-friendly supporters in South Florida, and many are Hispanic.
Coincidentally, the theme for Hispanic Heritage Month 2011 is: “Heritage, Diversity, Integrity and Honor: The Renewed Hope of America,” therefore it is especially timely that the first Celebrate Orgullo® will truly celebrate the diversity of our community.
Celebrate Orgullo® is a grassroots effort, conceived and implemented by a group of volunteers who decided that it was time for Miami Beach to lead the way in honoring the cultural contributions of the LGBT Hispanic community. The committee unanimously voted to name the city’s mayor, Matti Herrera-Bower, as “Honorary Orgullo Queen” to recognize her support throughout the years.
There are several opportunities for companies and organizations to become involved and reach out to a lucrative market at Celebrate Orgullo®. Sponsorships range from $500 to $15,000, and a limited number of booths are available at $250 per space, or $150 for a non-profit organization. Complete details are available at http://www.CelebrateOrgullo.com or call Jorge Richa, (305) 673-4440, or email Jorge@celebrateorgullo.com.
The event is free and open to the public, and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of food and beverages will benefit the LGBT Youth Scholarship Fund of Miami-Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Inc.
Members of the Executive Committee are Ivan Cano, Jorge Richa, Herb Sosa, Laura Veitia and Darvin Wlliams. On the Planning Committee are Lynn Bove, Luis Gonzalez, Joe Granda, Yubi Herrera, Scott Holland, Josue Kant, Sharon Kersten, Josue Santiago, Luiz Rodrigues Soraya Swingen, Peter Tapia and Hernan Valverde.
Media Partners to date, who are donating advertising and promotion to Celebrate Orgullo® are AMBIENTE Magazine, Florida Agenda, Hot Spots!, GENRE Latino, Mark, Mark’s List, Miami Gay Blog, She Magazine, South Florida Gay News and WIRE Weekly
Community Partners/Sponsors, committed to providing support through donations of product, community outreach and/or financial support, are Brown-Forman, Bud Light, City of Miami Beach, City of Miami Beach GLBT Business Enhancement Committee, Chambord Vodka, ECOMB, Granda Entertainment, Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, Hotflyers.com, Ikandee Productions, Inferno Puerto Rico, Kersten Communications, Leblon, Miami Dade Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, MDGLCC Foundation, Inc.” Miami Reconnect, Noche Latina Florida, Palace Restaurant & Bar, South Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,Tequila Herradura, Unity Coalition|Coalicion Unida and Worldwide Travel Partners.

ABOUT NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH
The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover the 30-day period from September 15 through October 15.
The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September18, respectively.”

About Kim’s Good Karma Group
Kim’s Good Karma Group, founded by Miami philanthropist Kimberly Shenker-Bacardi, is a charitable organization consisting of herself and like-minded friends dedicated to helping those less fortunate around the world. Ms. Bacardi became aware of the essential work that Food For The Poor (FFP) has undertaken in Haiti after witnessing her neighbor, Dr. Jules Cadet, tirelessly raise funds over the past few years for his countrymen. As Ms. Bacardi is well aware of how important fundraising is for any organization, she decided to go where her heart guided her. Kim’s Good Karma Group was born.
After visiting Haiti on a mission trip with Food For The Poor and The Florida Marlins, Ms. Bacardi recognized the need to help. She visited many of the FFP villages, orphanages, and facilities they constructed and witnessed the conditions most Haitians were living in. She was moved by her experiences so much that she decided that the first fundraising effort that Kim’s Good Karma Group (KGKG) would take on would be for for the construction of the Kim’s Good Karma Group Community Center within the Marlins’ Homes For Haiti Village, built by Food For The Poor.
The KGKG community center will be a multi-use facility, providing vocational training classes and community meetings, as well as offering a safe and sturdy shelter during hurricane season. 的 am so excited for this opportunity because it does not stop here; the more money we raise, the more lives we can positively affect. The plans are to have a minimum of 25 homes, sanitation, a water source and community center. Our goal for the community center is $40,000, and the more we give, the more we can add to help more families with additional houses, solar lighting, and agriculture.” Kim remarked after her trip.
For information on how you can help KGKG or for interviews please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

NEWSFLASH: ELVIS CRESPO TO PERFORM ON MIAMI BEACH GAY PRIDE LATIN STAGE with DJ SET BY DJ/PRODUCER MAXIMUS 3000
(Miami, FL) On Saturday, April 16, Grammy and Latin Grammy Award winner Elvis Crespo will perform songs from his latest release “Indestructible,” along with other classic hits on the Miami Beach Gay Pride Latin Stage presented by Palace, Granda Entertainment, and Ivan Cano.
The Latin Stage will feature performances from 1 to 7 pm and is one of several event highlights taking place at Palace over the Pride weekend. The Stage will be set up across from Palace, on Ocean Drive at 12th Street.
Elvis’ performance is a part of his national Indestructible Promotional Tour, which he has dedicated to the LGBT community. Throughout the tour, Elvis will be performing at some of the largest gay venues and Pr2ide events around the country, including Hollywood, CA (May 21st), Long Beach Pride, CA (May 22nd), and San Francisco Pride (June 26th).
“All Humans are created equal and should be entitled to the same inalienable rights, and among them are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, as stated in the Declaration of Independence of the United States,” says Elvis.
Crespo shot to the top of the Billboard charts with his feverish and horn-fueled mix of nonstop merengue, as best exemplified by the anthem “Suavemente,” which topped the charts on Billboard’s National Hot Latin Top 40 and resulted in multiple hits, including “Suavemente”, “Tu Sonrisa” and “Pintame.”
Since then, he has released multiple chart-topping albums and has received numerous accolades and awards. His unique style transcends genre, ethnicity, ideology and language, and is synonymous with rhythm, movement and a presence defined by his versatility.
Crespo will ride on the Palace float in the Pride parade – beginning at noon from 5th to 14th Street on Ocean Drive – and will greet his fans at Palace, 1200 Ocean Drive, from 4:30 ‘til 5:30 pm prior to his performance on the Latin Stage at 6 pm.
Joining Elvis Crespo and Wilson Cruz on the Latin Stage is Dominican singer/songwriter Sohanny, the gorgeous Latin sensation who sparked a major buzz with her new smash single “No Es Normal,” a true club anthem. Mexican pop singer Fedro will also take the stage that day to perform some of his hits.
Actor Wilson Cruz will grace the Latin Stage as MC, lending his humorous wit throughout the day. Cruz, who began acting at age 7, has appeared in numerous films and television series. His role on the TV series “My So-Called Life” mirrored his own experience as a teen who was kicked out of his house when he told his family that he was gay.
Spinning hot tunes on the Latin Stage is DJ Maximus 3000, who returns to Miami Beach Gay Pride after his wildly successful appearance on the main stage Pride in 2009, its inaugural year. “Im super excited to add yet another layer to my growing artistic repertoire. I will be diving deep into my latin roots this year by supporting not only “The Unity Coalition|Coalición Unida LEADERS, LEGENDS& LOVELIES© (LL&L) BALL” (Miami’s largest LGBT Latino Advocacy group and non-profit organization) as the official DJ, But also representing all Latin & Latin American cultures by playing a rare and never before heard set of Latin music all in my current signature mashup video performance style,, along with acapellas of Top 40, Rock, Hip Hop, and other pop music ….Think Lady Gaga over a salsa beat, Rihanna over Merengue and Reggaeton versions of many familiar tracks. AND of course ill be playing a scorching hot Classic Latin House Set” says Maximus.
All of the Latin Stage performances will be streamed live online at www.miamibeachgaypride.com
In presenting the Latin Stage, Palace, Granda Entertainment, and Ivan Cano are putting the spotlight on the ethnic diversity of the South Florida community, as well as the growing Hispanic demographic in the U.S. and the plethora of visitors from South and Central America.
“It was time to add a decidedly Latin flavor to Pride this year,” says Palace GM Ivan Cano, who spearheaded the concept. Cano also is a member of the City of Miami Beach GLBT Business Enhancement Committee.
All-Star Line-up at the 2011 Miami Beach Gay Pride
In addition to this year’s Grand Marshal, Bravo TV’sAndy Cohen, the parade will feature numerous celebrities and VIPs riding in more than 60 floats or marching alongside in solidarity. Continuing her long-standing support of the LGBT community, DJ Tracy Young will be a special guest in the parade fresh off her recent guest appearance on “The Real Housewives of Miami.” Miami Beach Mayor Matti Bower and several of the city’s commissioners and staff will ride atop a specially designed float and many of the entries in the parade will echo this year’s “Super Hero” theme of empowerment.
Another highlight of Pride will be a salute to “Legacy Couples” – committed LGBT partners who have been together for 20 or more years who will march and ride together in recognition of their commitment and in affirmation of marriage equality.
Following the parade, the Pride Festival will feature refreshments, booths and two entertainment stages. Performers will include Dominican singer/songwriter Sohanny, performing her urban merengue dance hit “No Es Normal,” and multi-talented hit-maker JayQuan whose R&B/Pop/Latin vocals are a standout in the group Nas-T-Boyz. Also performing at the Festival will be Erika Jayne , Ceevox, Miss Richfield 1981, Marlon Alarm and the Miami Gay Men’s Chorus.
The pulse-racing line-up of DJs for the Festival includes Jody McDonald, DJ MIIK, DJ Seijo, Bill Kelly, and DJ/Producer Maximus 3000. Festival-goers can also expect some fabulous surprises and guest performances throughout the afternoon.
A Fabulous Week AbOUT
Because of the overwhelming success of the last two Pride events, Miami Beach Gay Pride has expanded this year to a week of extraordinary days OUT.

In her new show, “30 Years On The Throne!,” Miss Richfield 1981 looks back at her storybook life celebrating three decades of beauty sovereignty as reigning queen of Richfield, Minnesota, “where butter is a spice and gravy is a beverage.” This Midwestern maven is winning over theater and cabaret audiences around the country with an interactive format that combines homespun warmth and edgy improv in a truly original performance. Miss Richfield will grace the stage of the Colony Theater on Friday, April 15.
Also on Friday, a VIP fundraiser celebrating the kickoff of Pride — “Miami Beach Gay Pride Super Hero Soiree” — takes place at the W South Beach beginning at 9 p.m. Super surprises and special guest heroes will include fashion designer Christopher Bates, special guest DJ Scotty Thompson and special appearances by Grand Marshal Andy Cohen, DJ Tracy Young, and cast members from the reality show “Real Housewives of Miami.” Tickets are $125 by clicking on the “Buy Your Tickets” button and entering “VIP Superhero Soiree” in the “Purpose” box.

Andy Cohen, Bravo’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development, will be the Grand Marshal of the 2011 Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade on Saturday, April 16.
Since Cohen took over the network’s current development and production slate of over two dozen shows, the network has become the home of gay viewers’ reality TV favorites, including hits such as the Emmy and James Beard award-winning “Top Chef,” “”Top Chef Masters,” “The Real Housewives” series, “Kathy Griffin My Life On the D List,” “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” “Million Dollar Listing,” “The Rachel Zoe Project,” “The Fashion Show: Ultimate Collection,” “Bethenny Ever After,” “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” and “Flipping Out.”
In addition, Cohen is the host and Executive Producer of “Watch What Happens,” Bravo’s late night, interactive, weekly talk show that features guests from the world of entertainment, politics and pop culture. The series includes lively debates on everything from fashion, the latest Housewives drama, to what celebrity is making headlines that week.
Asked in a recent interview whether Bravo has become a “gay network,” Cohen stated, “I’m always saying we’re bi, but I think it’s kind of how I view myself being gay — it’s just one of things that I am,” he said. “So Bravo may or may not be gay, but I think there’s a lot of other things going on. I think for the gay people on Bravo, it’s one of the things that they are — they’re not on Bravo because they’re gay. The people that are gay on Bravo, like Brad on Rachel Zoe or Jeff on ‘Flipping Out,’ they’re gay but they’re also great at what they do and that’s why they’re on Bravo, and that’s important.”
In February, Cohen teamed up with British rugby player Ben Cohen to film a video for the It Gets Better Project, offering a message about acceptance and celebrating differences. He talks about his progression from being a scared teenage boy through his awakening in college and to success as an adult.
Cohen started at Bravo in 2005 as Senior Vice President of Original Programming & Development and since then he has overseen an aggressive slate of unscripted series and specials including past hits “Project Runway,” “Queer Eye,” “Work Out,” “Being Bobby Brown,” “Top Design,” “Make Me a Supermodel,” “Blow Out” and “The A List Awards”.
Cohen received an Emmy Award when season six of “Top Chef” won the Outstanding Reality Competition Program at the 2010 primetime awards and has been nominated for nine additional Emmy Awards as Executive Producer of “Project Greenlight,” “Project Runway,” “Top Chef” and “Queer Eye.” In 2005, Cohen was awarded a Peabody Award for his role as Executive Producer of the TRIO documentary “The N Word” and another Peabody in 2008 as an Executive Producer of “Project Runway.” In 2010, TV Guide Magazine named Cohen one of the “25 Most Powerful People in Television” (along with Oprah Winfrey, Simon Cowell, Tina Fey, and Jon Stewart).
Born in St. Louis, Cohen is a graduate of Boston University where he received a B.A. degree in broadcast journalism.
Cohen will lead the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade beginning at noon on Saturday, April 16th at 5th Street and Ocean Drive. The parade continues along Ocean Drive, featuring festive floats and the inspiring LEGACY couples – couples who have been in committed relationships for 20 years or more.
Following the parade, the festivities continue at Lummus Park, between 10th Street and 14th Street, with exciting musical performances, a festival featuring LGBT-friendly vendors and businesses, refreshments and a family-friendly playzone.

While guests imbibe complimentary 42BELOW vodka cocktails and nosh on hors d’oeuvres, DJ Maximus 3000 will be spinning a number of the tracks that have made many of Granda Entertainment’s artists so famous!
Throughout history we have seen the genre of music shift, change, and evolve to include a plethora of unique artists and acts; however, most artists are relegated to one specific market or sound. This year, Joe Granda, CEO and Founder of Granda Entertainment, will celebrate nearly 40+ years of successfully merging the Latino and Anglo markets within the entertainment industry, providing both markets with some of the biggest names in the world of Crossover Artists, including Shakira, Ricky Martin, Enrique Iglesias, Gloria Estefan, Gloria Trevi, Nelly Furtado, among many, many more.
Granda, which has been part of the entertainment industry for 40+ years, began his career in the entertainment industry as a child actor for WLTV (now Univision) in a children’s variety program, “Cabalgata Infantil” as a magician and ventriloquist, and by the age of fifteen he formed the band, “Majesty” as lead vocalist, which he signed to Jaguar Records an Indie label from Miami headed by music moguls Carlos Garcia (President Miami Tape) and Tony Moreno, (President/CEO Musical Productions, one of the largest indie Latin labels in the world).
While working as a child star and musician, Granda quickly learned the importance of branding an artist, a strong marketing team, and, of course, event and concert production. Granda moved from the stage to behind the scenes, working closely with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry to put his respective artists at the top of the charts under the auspices of his new Indie record label, Angel Eyes Music, which is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year!
While working with these artists on promotion, marketing, and concert and event production, Granda developed a successful formula to merge Latino based artists with the Anglo mainstream market, creating a new category of music, referred to by Billboard Magazine as “Crossover”. Oscar Llord formerly of the Sony Discos Label immediately recognized the importance of this crossover formula and implemented Granda’s marketing strategy to help artists, such as Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Elvis Crespo, Son by Four, and many more, successfully break into the mainstream Anglo market.
Since beginning his career 40+ years ago to launching his Indie record label Angel Eyes Music 25 years ago to the development of Granda Entertainment 10 years ago, Granda has been at the forefront of just about every music movement, including Rock, Disco, Dance, Freestyle, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Reggaeton, Electro, and beyond. His roster of artists, personalities, and celebrities reads like a who’s who of crossover and Latino artists.
Of course, Granda’s involvement in events like Viva La Musica at SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, the Latin Music Panel & Showcase during Winter Music Conference, Miami Dance Awards, Miami Beach Gay Pride, Long Beach Pride, San Francisco Pride, and his national club tours have helped his client/artists reach hundreds of thousands of music fans and take their career to all new heights.
Beyond being a major player in the evolution of a variety of music genres, Granda has developed a number of innovative tools and mediums to help independent artists reach the mainstream market in a rapidly more efficient way. Instead of traditionally sending out demos of singles to individual DJs and booking agents, Granda created the Digital Promo Distribution Network, a service that provides instant music, remixes, and video to the Top Club DJs all over the world. Last year, he also created the Latin Music Club Report, which is the only industry trade that focuses on DJs’, record pools and industry executives that support club music and contains the only Latin Music Club Charts.
As you can see, Granda has very innovative and independent ideas on how to fully market his artists in both the Latino and Anglo mainstream markets through a variety of marketing mediums. His marketing, promotion savvy, and independent mentality have made him one of the most sought out industry executive by labels, managers, and artists. Forty years later, his motto “Independent in a MAJOR way” has never rung more true.
However, even with all of his success and accomplishments, Granda is also a very humble person, noting that all of his success would be for nothing if it were not for his fantastic team.
“I’m happy to be involved with such an incredible visionary, talented, hard working, and dedicated team in every aspect of everything that I do,” explains Granda. “ You can be a great quarterback, but you can’t win without the right team.”

Los Angeles Based Dance Music, Gay Pop Culture and Social Commentator Muzophile Interviews DJ Maximus 3000 about a series of Topics in a one on one candid conversation on his Blog, Follow this Link for For the Full Interview:
For Immediate Release: October 12, 2008
Gioia Bruno (of Expose’), Andy Fraser (of Free), Musiq Maniacs and DJ Maximus 3000 join creative forces for Obama.
“Miami October 12, 2008 – Gioia Bruno teams up with Andy Fraser to write a song for and inspired by Barack Obama. Bruno Singer, songwriter and producer Best known for being 1/3 of the female super pop/freestyle/dance group Expose’ which had phenomenal success with first seven singles reaching the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, including the 1988 #1 hit “Seasons Change”. Fraser is also famed Bassist and co-founder of the UK Based Rock Group Free, Best known for their hit “All Right Now”, which has been called one of the rock anthems of our century. He has recently been inducted into BMI’s rare 3 million club signifying the number of times the song has been played on radio. With this cross section of talent and fan base the two Writers felt inspired and called upon to use their sphere of influence and reach to add their voices to the growing number of artists, celebrities, public personalities and influential people crying out for a change in the United states this election.
“Change the World”, was created to motivate people to take a stand and to remind them that we all have a voice. The song carries an uplifting positive and happy vibe, a reminder of what golden times this country once had and more importantly holds a mirror up to the face of all the citizens of the United States reminding us of the dark times we are in and what’s to come if we don’t act now!
Miami Based DJ/Producer Maximus 3000 was also approached to contribute to the collaboration. He added an extended more euphoric club mix “speaking the language of his people” as he put it. When asked how and why Maximus got involved with the project he stated: “Well, like most things in the industry I got sent an acapella from a friend and was explained in very brief detail what the song was about and who was involved. It didn’t take too much back and forth before I went full force with my involvement. For one, it’s Gioia Bruno! Secondly the song fit so naturally with where I’m at right now it felt right to get involved. Barack Obama is the only presidential candidate that speaks to me and represents me as an individual, defending me and showing me a glimmer of hope in this country where I STILL don’t have the same rights as my heterosexual brothers and sisters (which is an issue that speaks to me). That boggles my mind and frankly hurts so deeply, it felt like my duty to “take the torch” so to speak on this issue. Turning it down would be turning down a chance to do something significant. Besides Gioia’s lyrics and vocals are mind numbingly addictive!
Whatever your reasons may be to support change, tax relief, bringing our troops home from war, helping with health care and social security, human rights and equality or a desire to be HAPPY in your own country we implore you to VOTE VOTE VOTE this election. We are at the pinnacle of a turning point in history.
So if you are a Journalist, Blogger, or Columnist – POST THIS. If you have a mailing list, or you are a promoter, or a member of a Group, – FORWARD THIS. IF you are DJ , Radio Personality , Program Director, own an Internet Radio station, – PLAY THIS. If you have a myspace page, website or blog – POST OUR BANNERS. Most importantly, if you want change – Than you must VOTE this Historical Election! This song belongs to you, the People. It is YOURS to share, so spread the word!”

He goes on to explain the intrigue about the track “This track to me, is right up my ally, Classic Disco meets modern electro. I went all the way in trying to create what Patrcik Cowley would have produced had the song been written in 2008. Hence the title ’83 ’08 mix. Cowbells, Handclaps and Synths were laid on thick for a Reason! Lets see, The track hit #1 in 1983, perhaps we can repeat history in more ways than one!”.

Link to Listing:
About The Video:
“Plastic Doll“ The Video was shot in authentic streetwalker style; at night, after hours, Guerilla-style and on the Downlow, in Miami’s Downtown District.
The Video (and song) explores the sexual confidence and street smarts of the song’s lead character, the Plastic Doll. It’s shot from her point-of-view in Voyeuristic, girls gone wild-esque, peeping tom camera angle, edits and style.
Colorful, unique and with an unforgettable, almost cartoon-like cast of characters who are bound to leave an impression, an image, on the mind of the viewer, “we feel we’ve created a timeless and cinematic piece, it’s a mini-movie inside a music video, it tells a story. GREAT camera work, hi-tech top-of-the-line cameras and accessories were employed along with post-production editing on the #1 rated software and hardware; Final Cut Pro and Mac computers, through our affiliated video/film arm, Deep C-Star Productions”, says Dance Planet X.
This version of the music video, which is basically PG-13, was completed first for The Klubjumpers’ “Plastic Doll (Juicy Lips Anthem mix)” when they were nominated for BEST REMIXER OF THE YEAR for the 2007 IDMA (international Dance Music Awards), and were asked to submit video work of their associated projects. This was pre-released exclusively to the IDMA awards, and hand-delivered to the Winter Music Conference Offices in South florida days before the event.
Recent comments and adjectives used to describe the “Plastic Doll” music video include: Racy, Kinky and even, sexually charged. (Not surprising, given the nature of the subject matter). The “Plastic Doll” teaser on youtube has already garnered over 37,000 hits and counting. (As of Sep 2007).
The Klubjumpers’ “Plastic Doll (Juicy Lips Anthem mix)” has also been licensed to “The Purple Ball CD” ( the Promo Limited Edition cd) mixed by DJ Eddie Baez , the soundtrack to the 2007 Purple Ball and Charity Function in Flint MI, organized by our good friend and Recording artist/producer Randy Friess. Artists included on the CD: DJ Paulo, Ceevox, DJ W, Tiffiny Affair, The Perry Twins, and Twisted Dee (to name a few).
The Klubjumpers’ Remix already currently receives airplay on a number of Internet radio sites, and is circulating worldwide to a slew of DJs. It’s also on the The Klubjumpers Live set list at consistently sold-out shows to tens of thousands of people.
About the Remixes:
Missy Elliot will turn this track inside out! A night in the life of your friendly, neighborhood STREETWALKING BITCH! Unabashedly sexual, with classic, confident ” GIRL snaps-her-fingers-attitude lyrics, this hip, fun, humorous, yet commanding display of women’s sexual powers takes you there and drops you right smack in the middle of the sidewalk where you’re suddenly surrounded by short skirts, high heels and men behind the wheels, on the prowl desperately seeking “HER”. Funny thing, fellas, the woman is on top. (Pun intended).
Lyrics go something like this: ” BIG FAT RED Juicy LIPS AND AN ASS SO TIGHT, IT’S SICK. I CAN SEE YOU FLYIN’ THROUGH THE PAGES OF THE MAGAZINE….A THIN-SLIM WAIST AND A DOUBLE-D AND A LEGS SO LONG IT’S WRONG..I CAN SEE YOU DRIVING DOWN THE STREETS LOOKIN’ FOR ME….. A NIGHT ON THE TOWN NEVER FELT SO RIGHT YOU DONE AND WET MY APPETITE. YOU NEED AN ATM FOR MY T&A SO TURN UP ON 42nd. I’LL WAIT RIGHT HERE, BUT JUST FOR A SECOND. SO HURRY UP YOUR CRAZY-ASS MISTER JOHN!!!!!”
