The Black Madonna

[ USA ]

In December of 2012, North America’s oldest independent venue, Smart Bar announced the The Black Madonna as their resident, along with Derrick Carter and Frankie Knuckles. Within a year, she became the club's first ever Creative Director in its three decade history, bringing a decidedly anti-establishment philosophy to her curatorial style. It's easy to see why the American was selected as Mixmag's 2016 DJ of the Year: She is a sublime technician behind the decks, and her fluent and dynamic vinyl sets can span from disco to techno. And then of course, there’s her inimitable and infectious ability to connect with any dance floor, which along with her technical skills, has cemented her as a beloved regular and crowd favourite across the globe.
