Lady Gaga Interview - Interview with Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is the next rock/pop/electro superstar – or maybe she is the first. Mix one part Blondie with one part Madonna, swirl it in a bath of the Scissor Sisters and Junior Senior, throw in some glitch and sprinkle with glitter and you come close the recipe. Winter Music Conference was her launching pad and the industry took note of her. Working with Akon and Red One, the Lady Gaga has crafted a debut CD full of beats and melodies set for release later this summer.

Traktor DJ Studio
As a singer/songwriter/dance artist just getting my feet wet in DJing, it's an interesting time to throw myself in the mix. Just as CDs were the new vinyl, mp3 files are establishing themselves as the new CD. I'll save the debate for another day, but it's safe to say that as a novice DJ, the thought of simply grabbing my laptop and external hard drive instead of cases and cases of CDs was very tempting.

The recent release of Buzzin' Fly Volume 3 is a testament to the music that Ben Watt continues to produces and find for the househeads of the world.

She let herself be seen a few times as an unassuming and docile beast, something to be comfortable around. She even let herself be heard, her calls and cries as far from threatening as possible.

Working with producers Fatal Art Syndicate, Cazwell, and Larry Tee, she has compiled a remix EP as a teaser for her upcoming artist album. Warning: the electro is as sexy and spicy as she is.
