Friday Feel Good Quick Mix ~ Studio 54 Disco Mixes

I wish I could go back in time. Although, I was too young to partake in this era. I could just image and feel the energy in this club. I wounder how the DJ’s from Studio 54 felt during their set. I would be a dream to play at this club.

The crowd outside 254 West 54th Street in New York City on this day in 1927 would have been waiting for the curtain of a Puccini opera. On this day in 1957 or ’67, they would have been waiting for a filming of an episode of Password or maybe Captain Kangaroo. On this day in 1977, however, the crowd gathered outside that Midtown address was waiting and hoping for a chance to enter what would soon become the global epicenter of the disco craze and the most famous nightclub in the world: Studio 54, which opened its doors for the very first time on April 26, 1977.

The impresarios behind Studio 54 were Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, college roommates at Syracuse University who got into the nightclub business after their first venture, a chain of steak restaurants, failed to flourish. But before taking Manhattan by storm and becoming famous for openly and shamelessly excluding all but the most chic, famous or beautiful patrons from their establishment, Rubell and Schrager were running a far less pretentious operation called the Enchanted Garden in the far reaches of Queens. The woman who deserves the lion’s share of the credit for making 54 into the celebrity playground that it became was Carmen D’Alessio, a public-relations entrepreneur in the fashion industry, whose Rolodex included names like Bianca Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Andy Warhol and Truman Capote. Her buzz-building turned the grand opening into a major item in the New York gossip columns, and her later efforts—like having Bianca Jagger ride a white horse into the club for her 30th birthday party—stoked the public’s fascination with Studio 54 even further. Not just the usual celebrity suspects—actors, models, musicians and athletes—but also political figures like Margaret Trudeau, Jackie Onassis and, infamously, White House Chief of Staff Hamilton Jordan came out to be seen during the club’s brief heyday.

While disco reigned supreme on the pop charts, Studio 54 reigned supreme among discotheques, enjoying a golden era that lasted from its opening on this day in 1977 to its closing-night party on February 4, 1980—a party called, appropriately enough, “The End of Modern-day Gomorrah.” Source.

BadBoy coverHip-hop star Diddy hit the stage at the BET Awards with a very special surprise under his sleeve on June 28. He reunited with many acts once featured on Bad Boy Records to commemorate his label’s 20th anniversary.

The BET Awards included many surprises but the biggest of the night belonged to Diddy when gave the audience in attendance and at home nostalgia overload. Diddy is now known as a man of many talents and industries but he first launched his career some 20 years ago with Bad Boy Records. As Puff Daddy, he produced, rapped and rounded up an exceptional group artists for his label. Many of those acts returned to the stage with Diddy on that Sunday night.

To kick off the Bad Boy reunion performance, Diddy recreated the look of one of his ’90s video by emerging from an area covered in mirrors. Ma$e then hit the stage with “Feel So Good” featuring the fitting lyrics “Bad boy, you make me feel so good.” 112 followed with a still sensual performance of “Peaches and Cream.” Faith Evans vocally brought down the house on “Love Like This” looking the same as she did while on Diddy’s imprint. Recent Bad Boy recruit French Montana spit his verse from the “Hot N****” remix. It was “All About the Benjamins” that was the highlight with the return of The Lox and Lil Kim. The latter was especially exciting to see back in action before the late and great The Notorious B.I.G. appeared on a screen. Diddy rounded out the set with “Finna Get Loose,” his new single with Pharrell Williams.

The Bad Boy Family extravaganza during the BET Awards was everything and it reminded everyone watching about one of the best eras in hip-hop music. In terms of new music, Diddy and Pharrell’s “Finna Get Lose” will be released to iTunes on June 29. For fans of the OG Bad Boy Records, Diddy also announced an upcoming world tour featuring the best artists who ever graced his label roster.
