DJ Spotlight

An interview by Allen Grubaugh How did you get your start as a DJ? Professionally, I began in 2006 in the City of Houston, TX when as a Reggaeton producer for Mega 101 FM, I crossed over into the DJ world and created an exciting vibe. I started playing for Club Mantra, The Vault, Copa Cabana, and Drink Houston. Later came the jump across the state to El Paso to work for Power 102 FM and becoming the Resident DJ at The OP and San Antonio Mining.

What do you enjoy most about your job? The excitement of not knowing what is going to happen at the end of the night. It is my job not only to play music but to create an excitement for people like no other, day in day out, making it different. When I play a combination of songs and lights that collide, I love the feeling of “wow did that just happen??? That was amazing!!!”

What was the ‘ah-ha’ moment in your life that made you realized you were in the right career? Or…when you realized you wanted to be a DJ? This goes back to when I was a kid. I won’t give you the same cheesy line “music is my life, i loved music ever since i was little”. Everyone loves music, but I was the kid that bought every single tape (yes, tape). I recorded every single song from the radio and as a 7 year old kid, I would slice my tapes together to make mix tapes with scissors and masking tape. The best moment was when i realized I could save worn out tapes with masking tape. Later at 16, I realized that editing was another great talent when I started to edit films and more. That opened up my imagination.

Tell us about your most hilarious DJ moment? There are probably more scary moments than hilarious... In fact, the only time our job is funny is when people dress in the most ridiculous ways or dance like there’s no tomorrow. When I started working for the OP in El Paso, I had the pleasure of working with my good friend Mr. Texas at Large, Nikko Andrews and his charismatic persona. On our first nights of working together he would try to make fun of me to the crowd for technical errors, but instead of getting mad, I would just turn off his microphone. What is an MC without a MIC?

What advice could you offer someone who is aspiring to be a DJ? All new DJ’s need to learn to read music. Learn to search for records, not download thru blogs. Learn to appreciate music you don’t like. And more importantly, understand why each DJ plays differently and why that is not better or worse than anyone. This should all happen before you even consider playing with DJ equipment, or picking out your name. Then, when and if you do get past everything I mentioned, buy your own equipment!!! You’re not a DJ if you don’t have equipment of your own - and Beats are not DJ head phones.

Currently what are you working on? Just became the new DJ for The Briar @ Hyde Patio Gardens (formally The Briar Patch). This venture has me excited to be working hard to bring new events to El Paso’s Pride Square. Just this week I got confirmation for four crazy parties featuring vodkas, tequilas and other liquors. Plans to put together my first ever hair show are already halfway done and should be complete by the end of the week. Branching out to other scenes in the El Paso area is not easy, but with my Team of DJs called the Affiliated People, we are now also at the new La Serata inside Union Plaza, El Paso. Jaguars Gold Club for the craziest after-hours party features BYOB, and plans to take over the Cincinnati District, El Paso are coming soon. So if you’re in the El Paso area make sure to re-discover the night life with us. We are currently taking bookings for our Fall Club Tour 2012. For more information on FresCo and the Affiliated People please visit www.FresCoEnt.com

What is your dream DJ gig? I don’t have a dream DJ gig... I’m a workaholic and always look to do bigger and better events and venues. I have played both large and small events and hope to do even more of them. I figure if I make it to Vegas then the next stop is Berlin. I hear great things go down in that city.

In the Kitchen

By Blue Jean Granny ood Morning Guys and Gals,

as good as fresh or frozen, but yes, I do use it quite often.

It’s another hot, but beautiful summer morning. The sun is shining, people bustling around going to work, a few kids headed to summer school and the birds in the trees over my driveway happily decorating my car. Boy, the car wash place sure gets a lot of visits from me and my car. Thankfully, my hubby buys me a season ticket. I have been busy around here, trying out new bread recipes. I love, love, love homemade breads. Of course, I can never wait for it to cool before I grab a hunk and slather some butter on it. It is not only soul satisfying but brings back such wonderful memories of by-gone days. My daughter comes and bakes with me a lot of the time so we are making more great memories together.

We really like mushrooms also, so I usually double the amount of mushrooms. Another little hint, I usually buy my mushrooms at The Dollar Tree store where I get a 10 ounce jar for a buck. This is certainly not a paid advertisement, but for all you budget watchers out there, the secret is out! I buy fancy mustards, sauces and a few other items that you can really get a good deal on there. But let us get on with the recipe...

Sausage and Pasta 1 pound Italian-style sausage, casings removed 1 large onion, chopped

Well, I know you are waiting to see what I have conjured up today, so I want to introduce you to a very easy quick recipe for Sausage and Pasta. I use Italian sausage, because that is what hubby likes, but you can easily substitute your choice of flavor.

1 medium-sized green bell pepper, chopped

By the way, have I told you that you can buy garlic cloves already peeled? If you have more than you need, just pop them into a jar and put the jar in the freezer. I usually always have a small jar of cloves in my freezer. For some reason, I have a hard time keeping fresh garlic bulbs from drying out. So this trick really works well for me. Of course, you can always buy it already minced in a jar also, not quite

1 (4-ounce) can mushrooms, drained

Pg.12

2 garlic cloves, minced 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, undrained (or 1 can diced tomatoes & 1 can Ro Tel)

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 pound rotini, twist or spiral pasta 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese (now you just know I use more)

Instructions In a large skillet, scramble-fry sausage over medium heat until no pink remains in the sausage and continue stirring to crumble the sausage. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic and cook until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and add tomatoes, mushrooms, Italian seasoning, and chili powder. Simmer 10 minutes, or until heated through. Meanwhile, prepare pasta according to package directions; drain, rinse and drain again. Place on a large serving platter. Pour sauce over pasta and top with mozzarella cheese. Serve about 6. Toss a quick salad, slice a little garlic bread, pour some ice tea, what could be simpler? Oh and for dessert, how about a cookie? Speaking of which, my suggestion to you as always is to work smart, play hard and take time out for a cookie. Show Blue Jean Granny how much you love her recipes, hints and stories too. You can send an email with recipe requests or topic suggestions, or just to show her some love at Granny@ TWITmagazine.com. TWIT

By Thomas “DJ Big Daddy” Edmond

T

here is a storm rolling through Texas and it’s ripping up dance floors and stages all over the state. The storm is named Kennedy Davenport and she is on a mission to become Texas’ major drag superstar. Kennedy is what I call “True Drag”. She is the kind of performer you don’t see anymore in a show. Kennedy does it all in her shows from an old church going sister to singing live as a sassy, sexy blues siren. Not many girls sing live, but Kennedy can sing and sing well. She can also dance her pants off. Being a part of USofA is a major deal for a lot of girls that do drag. Texas is the home state of USofA pageants and our state has the most USofA preliminary pageants out of all the states. When and where did you start drag your drag career? I started drag in 1997 in Dallas. I was in my rebellious stage, out doing what I wanted to do. My childhood church bff looked at me and told me I would make a pretty girl. The rest is history. What has been the highlight or your career so far? I have had the opportunity to perform all over the country, Jamaica and the Bahamas. I would have to say the thrill of entertaining people who aren’t familiar with me. In that first-meeting experience, getting their reaction, receiving their energy and love for the art form and entertainment is my highlight.

I know every performer has their money making song, or a song fans want them to do. So what is your money making number? Lawd! Well, being that most of my music is high energy, I tend to make pretty decent money when I perform. Then, being that I am a diverse black woman, I have a few numbers. But there is one number that no matter who is there, I know I will make my money and that’s my old time favorite, “100% Pure Love” by Crystal Waters. In my whole career, I have never gone wrong with her!

I know you have been really busy with getting ready for Miss Texas USofA. What are the high and low points of getting ready for such a pageant? Oh WOW! Let me see. The highs would be being able to be creative with your package. Preparing the new gowns and knowing that you are going to look lovely if everything goes right. It’s also fun coming up with new talents to do. Getting ready for and pageant is very hard and stressful and it can take a lot out of you. Ok so let’s get real and talk about the low points of all this and let’s BE REAL! The lows of preparing for Miss Texas: No money; no bookings. No Money? Of course, you could never have enough money. I will say that I have taken the necessary steps toward having money for Miss Texas. Unfortunately, I need more money than I thought I would need. Well you know some know-it-all is reading this saying: “Why don’t these queens get a real job?” My last corporate job was the US Navy. Before that, I held down good jobs with “drag” being a hobby. Female Impersonation is my chosen profession. In 2005, I made this my life. I am a firm believer of giving my all and not giving up until I reach my goal. So in order to do that I can’t do this half time, it must be full time.

August August 3, 3, 2012 2012

What do you see and want for your future in drag? In my future, I would be retiring and be respected by everyone in my community for the work I put in the business. I also want to continue to help newcomers because they are our future. So there is a lot of talk about Ru Paul’s Drag Race. We have a mutual friend, Latrice Royale, who has become an over night sensation. Do you see yourself getting on Drag Race or singing? Because I think you are a great singer

Thank you, and that is a good question. I will be trying out for season 6 of drag race. Although that wasn’t on the top of my list of accomplishments. What is on top of my list is being Miss USofA. But it seems as if most of my fans would like to see me on Ru Paul’s Drag Race. To be honest with you, I really want to be on America’s Got Talent. (She laughs.) Who knows what the future holds for me. I have been blessed with many talents and many faces. So wherever God leads me I will follow. I’m glad you did this interview to give more people in Texas and on the web a chance to know more about you. Is there anything in closing you want the people to know about Kennedy Davenport? I want them to know that I am a native of Dallas. I represent them. When you see me, know that I’m not a stranger. I can say that I have taken part in paving a way for any little drag girl wanting to learn to drag dance “disco”. I am one of few who chose to keep the legacy of Texas drag dance alive. I’m not a diva, but your friend, your good girl friend, your cousin, your neighbor next door that’s always at your house. I’m one that cares about my people, my family, but most of all my community. Embrace me and love me just as I embrace and love you. Kennedy Davenport performs all over Dallas and has a benefit show coming up August 12, 2012 at the Havana Lounge in Dallas.

The Play by Stephanie Mott

I

magine waking in the morning and entering into a play. You assume the part of a character, not you. The character is about five years old and male. You ask "How can I play the part of a boy?” "This is the part you are assigned.” comes the answer, “And this is the part you will play.” So you play the part, quickly understanding that you must learn the lines and take the role. You play the part all day, until at night, you can come out of character. Lying awake for a while, dreaming of a day when you can wake up in the morning and just be you. Then you wake up the next morning and enter into the same play. The scene picks up where it left off the day before. Day after day. Week after week. Month after month. Year after year. You play the part so well that it almost becomes you. You know exactly what to say and how to act. No longer, is it even necessary to think about it. Just do it. Some of the lines are scripted. Expectations that are easy to see. Words reflect the feelings of the character, not the performer. The player's feelings are to be kept separate. Only to be expressed in the context of the role. Occasionally attempting to surface from the inwardly directed consciousness of alone. Then stuffed back into their proper place. Carefully hidden from the cast. Constantly in fear of someone finding out that you are not the person in the play. And the dark imagined consequences that would surely follow if they did. Always searching for the person to walk onto the stage. Endlessly waiting for the right line. The one that says, "You no longer have to pretend. It is ok to be you." But the lines you often hear are the ones where someone talks about the evilness and sickness of people like you. There are times when you are not on stage. Moments when you can step out of character. It

Pg. 32

is a stage, after all, and there are other costumes. Finding ways to express your true self in the hidden corners behind the curtains. Finding desperately needed breaths in which there is some degree of truth. Better than no truth at all. Yet, also serving to define the correctness of what could possibly be, and the emptiness of knowing it will never be yours. Over time, the play takes on a different story line. The character is driven by the emptiness, and the lines and scenes become ever more dark. Ever more destructive. Ever more seeming to be leading to a painful and lonely death. "What are you doing to yourself", cry the actors and actresses on stage. You wonder, "Why can't you see me?", as you reach once again for anything to kill the feelings that never go away. If you are lucky, just at the moment when death seems to be inevitable, new characters enter the play. They come with lines and scenes never before allowed on stage. Things that had been dreamed, but were never possible. Hopes that had been born, but only to die. The spotlight is now on you. And someone finally says, "I know who you are. You are a girl, a woman. Why are you playing this part?" And the curtains closes. And the play is over. A new play, is about to begin.

Tracks

“I

believe everything starts with an idea”, says pop artist Aiden Leslie. His new Rocktronic single, Diamond Dreams - a blend of Rock, Pop, and Dance with hints of Electronica - releases to iTunes and major music retailers this week via ASHEA Records. It depicts the life journey Leslie launched six days after his high school graduation when he left his sleepy Ohio hometown for the bright lights, big city of New York to become the music performer he is today. “When you begin to visualize what you want, then you can create a plan of action to make it real,” he explains.

Believing in the impossible and making it a reality is the central theme of Diamond Dreams, however the song also reveals some of the pitfalls Leslie has encountered along the way. For instance, he sings how he has “Gotta start letting the love in”. “For a long time, I looked away from love or sought it from people that would never return it,” he admits. Another powerful admission he discloses is how he has been craving affection and creating protection. “It is the survivor in me,” he says. “Like so many people, I have been afraid to let people in. I have been hurt so many times that I have sabotaged opportunities that came my way. Building walls protects but it imprisons as well and inhibits any chance at affection. I’m learning to find the balance.” After a two-year self-imposed hiatus from music, Aiden Leslie blasted on to the pop charts early last year with “Worlds Away”, a song about the death of his beloved sister. It climbed to the top spot on the club music retail site, Masterbeat.com. It’s music video also reached the #1 position on MTV LOGO’s “The Click List”, where it remained for four consecutive weeks. He returned last fall with “Trying to Leave Now”, a song he wrote about a relationship he was forced to leave even though his feelings were still strong and alive. In Diamond Dreams, Leslie rejoins producer Mike Degen (who also produced “Trying to Leave Now”) and once again bares his soul through music. He’s

become known for using his records as personal diary entries. He wouldn’t have it any other way. “I hid for a long time and only found a lot of darkness by doing that. Sharing experiences can be powerful. It helps me to express myself, and hopefully it may help someone else too.” The song’s music video depicts Leslie’s singular journey in a chaotic world. “We wanted to show how even in a big city like New York, with a huge ocean of people passing by you everyday, we all remain individuals,” says director Marco Ovando, whose gained viral fame in recent months for his work with New York celebutantes Amanda Lepore and Cazwell. His imagery adds a high-end, energetic, highly stylized performance feel to the video. Something fans of Leslie haven’t seen from the artist before. It was the “If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere” theme of the track that drew Ovando to the project as like Leslie, Ovando counts Manhattan’s vibrant nightlife as a primary inspiration and a source of subject matter in much of his work. “You don’t come to New York to sit on your ass,” says Ovando. “We’re all here working toward our goals.” Aiden Leslie’s diamond dreams are different today than what they were in the beginning of his journey. “Today, I dream for something even bigger. I dream that I will never settle for what I know in my heart to be true, even if it means I must make hard sacrifices.” He feels gratitude for his many blessings and looks back fondly at the long road he has traveled since graduating high school. “In the end, all of what you do in your life makes you who you are,” says Aiden Leslie. “Why not celebrate it and reach for the Diamond Dreams that inspire you? You only have one go-around to make it happen.” For more information on Aiden Leslie and “Diamond Dreams”, visit www.aidenleslie.com. TWIT

years of hits and countless remixes under her belt , it made many wonder what will be on the cd’s track list. Which could have been a problem, but J.Lo and Sony made sure the fans who buy singles and listen to radio are very happy. Now for the hard core fans and DJ’s, which I am both, well I think we wanted more, which knowing the brand that is J.lo I am sure is on the way. As with most greatest hits collections compilations, Dance Again... The Hits has all the hits that most people know and a couple of new cuts, such as ‘Dance Again’ and her number one smash ‘On The Floor’; which is as hot today as it was in April 2011, when it first blew up on radio, but all J.Lo’s singles have a timeless factor to them even after 10 years we are still dancing to “Waiting For Tonight” “I’m Real” and “Ain’t It Funny” which are all on this cd. J.Lo made sure to not go off track with this release as some other acts do with their hits packages, so there’s no unexpected material on this album, no rare singles or major remixes, this is all meat no filler, which most people seem to think her albums are.

.Lo,the queen of all that is sexy, sassy and classy (or trashy it depends on the dress) and the blueprint on how any future diva can become a major household name, has finally released a greatest hits collection some 13 years after her debut album. It’s amazing it didn’t happen already but I’m glad cause with most pop divas a greatest hits album is the kiss of death, it means they have nothing new to offer or the buyers are not into what they have to offer anymore. Now some artists struggle to fill an album with their ‘best’ work, that doesn’t seem to have been a problem here for Jennifer Lopez. J.Lo and her dancefloor hits have made their way into every possible genre. There is not a club that has not played a J.Lo track, from R&B clubs to Latin clubs she has proved she has mass appeal in every sense. Jennifer keeps the DJ’s, drags queens and young girls that want to be her always wanting more. With over 13

There is one new single on the cd “Going In”, and will be featured in the new Step-Up movie (why?, wasn’t Step Up 3D enough??) this is a major peak hour song for any club and it’s a party into its self with club chanting from Lil Jon and it also features flavor of the month rapper Flo-Rida, it is hot but a bit too short so I say download the Michael Woods remix there will a lot of fist pumping and head tossing on the dancefloor to this even in the gay clubs. It doesn’t matter if you love her or hate her Jennifer Lopez is unstoppable, she is a brand as know world wide as Coke. So get this cd or download it turn it on before you go out on the weekend and I’m sure you’ll be in party mode as you and you friends are ki-ki’ing about what you club to hit on Saturday night. More information at www.jenniferlopez.com Rating B - (good cd , just felt there could have been more) Big Daddy’s Heyyyy Tracks (the song that make you say hey, that’s my song girl) #9. Jenny from The Block. My all time favorite J.Lo song I do a double play always #4 . On The Floor. This song is still great even a year later and is infectious Thomas “DJ Big Daddy” Edmond operates PrideDJsRadio.com and can be reached at DJBigDaddy@TWITmagazine.com. TWIT

Aries March 20 April 19

Cancer June 21 July 22

You are well suited to occupations that involve novelty, where you can function on your own creative way and tempo. Your logical judgment is reflected in your material affairs. Not one to over spend, in the face of financial adversity you remain optimistic, and always hopeful that situations will turn out for the best. Realizing that little is ever gained by wishing on a star, you accept your economic obligations realistically and as investment in your future.

Authority figures respect you as a competent employee who isn’t afraid to jump in when the going gets rough, even though coworkers may occasionally criticize you for doing more than your share. It’s fine to be of service, but you risk being exploited by those whom you serve. Social work, welfare programs, rehabilitation, and helping others-therapy suits you well, provided that there is more mental stimulations than physical. Don’t be a fuss budget--treat yourself to something nice after a hard day’s work.

Taurus April 20 May 20 Having a coworker or boss breathing down your neck distracts you from delivering your best. working on a team doing routine tasks, or waiting for others stifles and bores you silly. It’s not that you’re uncooperative or arrogant, but rather you’re simply self sufficient. You meet deadlines punctually and cleverly. Because you’re inclined to be a somewhat difficult authority figure, entrepreneuring outlets with faithful employees suit you best.

Your financial gains come as a result of deliberate action and eagerness to get a job finished-thoroughly and quickly! Once you commit to a project, you voraciously attack it and get it over with ASAP, never losing sight of the reward. You keep everything in order and are constantly aware of coworker’s opinions and suggestions. You’re an all or nothing employee; there is no middle ground for you concerning money. Virgo August 23 September 22

Gemini May 21 June 20 “Tell me what you want and I’ll do it” is on your business card, probably. Once you establish goals, you prepare a precise itinerary, and don’t rest until it’s completed. You focus on one thing at a time and direct all your efforts towards that end, rarely making excuses or missing a deadline. Clever about money, you know how to get the best bang for the buck and have fun with spending, as well as time. You rarely live beyond your means.

Leo July 23 August 22

You’re naturally curious about how to best profit from time and investments and have a bit of a gambling streak. You enjoy hobbies that engage your mind--like puzzles, riddles, cards, or reading. Professions that involve exploration and analysis, uncovering secrets, or engage your hands do well for you. You enjoy seeing a final product at the end of a work day. You prefer to make your way alone, working happily at a job which allows you freedom rather than confining routine.

Libra September 23 October 22 You analyze things very carefully and rarely jump to conclusions, preferring to spend as much time as possible researching choices and weighing every point of view. This can be very useful, but sometimes you take so long that coworkers grow impatient because of your cautious thoroughness. your innate curiosity enjoys uncovering secrets--and you know how to keep them! Discipline, reserve, and sharp powers of observation are native to those born Libra. Scorpio October 23 November 21 You go to great lengths to gain approval on the job and perform every task without much supervision or suggestion. Your opinions are always clear and real, although your healthy ego finds you a bit defensive. Try to invest more time analyzing work details, because you’re inclined to overlook the small(but important) stuff. You work in brilliant spurts of enthusiasm that carry through until the job is done-at least to your satisfaction! Sagittarius November 22 December 21 Because of an innate need for you to prove yourself to others, you often take on more than you should. Sure, it’s nice when the boss

acknowledges or gives you the thumbs up, as long as you understand the difference between applause, job description, and martyrdom. You manage your personal finances pretty well, and are a trustworthy employee who keeps business discussions and coworkers separate from friends. Capricorn December 22 January 19 You drive yourself at an incredible enthusiastic pace--no one ever calls you lazy! However, by rushing hurriedly, you often waste time and vitality. You want everything “now” and indecisive coworkers irritate you. Earning money by temporary, part-time, and freelance work suits you well, because it allows you time to pursue personal pleasures, reconsider options. Aquarius January 20 February 18 Although most would say that your thinking is neither objective nor clear, you rarely let emotions influence your business decisions. In fact, it’s downright unpleasant for you to be around coworkers who get carried away by their feelings! Although not mathematically inclined, you always seek a bottomline debitcredit balance--you love understanding how everything works as a whole. You cover the Big Picture first and then fill in the details. Pisces February 19 March 20 You’re not afraid to work hard if your efforts are appreciated, but you often bite off more than you can chew. Be careful in your relationships with coworkers because you are inclined to take on others duties and responsibilities at the slightest suggestion. Spending money, rather than saving, comes easy. Although rarely extravagant, budgets are boring for you. Fantasy window shopping and cruising through mail order catalogues keep your mind active.
