Hello there lovely Podomatic people!
Madam Sugar here, formerly known as Dj Miss Behaviour and currently in name transition which i can assure you is a
decision i haven't taken lightly grrrrrr but as more Miss Behaviours seem to be appearing, it makes sense to do it now as i really start promoting myself.
Well my love of house music began from visiting certain clubs in London as a wide eyed fairly
innocent 20 year old, who'd barely been even to a pub or club before that. My lifelong passion and participation in
performance art (theatre bunny!lol) had me filled with a deep seated appreciation for musical sounds & styles.
Especially that which i could really feel, be it through powerful vocal performance, the genius of the musician & an instrument or a simple beautiful melody. However growing up apart from the shows & plays i was in, at home my foster parents kept music and tv away from me entirely. So although i grew up in the 80's i was a young adult before i really heard the sounds & saw the faces of 80's popular culture.
My first real experience of a nightclub & electronic music, was around mid 90's? & a trip to London's infamous gay club 'Trade at Turnmills' aptly known as "the allnight bender"....opening at 4am sunday after Gallery and ending the following afternoon, cutting edge for it's underground sounds from the likes of The Sharp Boys, Malcolm Duffy, Alan Thompson, Steve Thomas, Pete Wardman to name a handful
I was absolutely blown away, i'd never heard music like that before or felt it with such intensity.
The sound system, the lazers, the people and the sheer excited pleasure, as each dj crafted and blended the music into one extraordinary continuous mix, never stopping to start a new sound but somehow leading us there.
That journey through powerfully pounding beats and relentless basslines, literally bounced me around the club and left me breathless. Even upstairs in the toilets, the walls shook n the tiles vibrated, nobody could stop moving.
When Tony De Vit (may he rest in peace) played the encore track 'Access - Dj Misjah & Dj Tim, i thought i
would surely burst!
I soon became totally hooked on house, trips to London became regular, turning into weekenders as i quickly discovered my other top club 'DTPM at Fabric' . . . . . . .ah the sounds of Lisa German and the incredible live percussionist Basil Black II Basic!
I never believed my secret desire to mix music and learn the craft of all the djs i had come to admire so much would ever become a reality.
I think i assumed my limited experience or lack of actual knowledge about house music, meant probably it wasn't my place.
Now 5 years down the line nothing gives me greater joy than to share my passion for house music with one or one hundred people from behind the decks.
Huge love & respect goes out to Mandy & Jaxz, the 2 very special people who helped me get my decks & who showered my life with positivity, believed in me so deeply and who encouraged me constantly to be bold, brave & true.
I hope you enjoy listening to my mixes and know that i'm always smiling.....music is the answere,
