Introducing COMPUTER MAGIC

Based out of New York State, producer, label owner and songwriter Danz Johnson is COMPUTER MAGIC. A Japanophile or "shinnichi" as the locals like to put it, Johnson actually released her first album ‘Scientific Experience’ as a Japan only release in 2012.

Kid-Moxie-1888Since her first releases ‘Human Stereo’ in 2007 and ‘Selector’ in 2009, KID MOXIE has progressed on a transient journey through her guest spots with fellow Greeks NIKONN and FOTONOVELA to her most striking work yet with her second full length album ‘1888’.

Two acts who were listening closely were OMD and PET SHOP BOYS. So what eighteen songs would go on an imaginary compilation today as an introduction to the work of this under rated, but very gifted producer?

DUBSTAR Live at The Lexington

DUBSTAR made their triumphant comeback at The Lexington playing to an eager crowd who had been waiting in anticipation. The trio of Sarah Blackwood, Steve Hillier and Chris Wilkie were making their first public appearance on stage together since reforming. Although Blackwood and Wilkie have been doing low key acoustic gigs including DUBSTAR songs for a while, this was the first full gig featuring the force of Hillier’s programmed synth backing which was very much a distinctive feature of the DUBSTAR sound, drawing in admirers at the height of the guitar dominated Britpop era.
