Designer Paul Smith, Jody Watley and Rosero McCoy. A #PaulSmithSelfie
What a delight it was to meet designer Paul Smith, while hanging out with my close friend and Shalamar compadre Rosero McCoy. Bryan Rabin is always the classiest event producer who knows how to put an eclectic room together, DJ Adam Bravin spinning the right music for the evening – just the right amount of fabulousness.

We’re just getting started with the single. An official video, limited edition vinyl, remixes by Moto Blanco and Jodie Harsh being completed as I type. Initially, I wasn’t going to do remixes because I want everything about this to be ‘classic’. That said, these will service a broader club community while maintaining the integrity of the record. Of course, remixes have always been a part of my repertoire. I’ll also be doing a bit more promotion while remaining selective. I’ve been asked if “Nightlife” is a part of an album or EP – it is a part of my forthcoming “Paradise” which will be released early 2014. All shares on your social media outlets, blogs and word of mouth mean the world. Let’s show the corporations and media know that classic quality music remains vibrant and strong – like an artist / songwriter / producer me! Thank you.

My Saturday night at Giorgio’s was truly a night to remember. Meeting the legendary Giorgio Moroder was like a dream. Dancing to his songs and productions as a teen including one of my favorite soundtracks “Midnight Express” – “From Here to Eternity”, not to mention his groundbreaking work with Donna Summer along with his production and writing partner Pete Bellotte. He and his wife Francisca were relaxed and friendly, as Giorgio’s Bryan Rabin too me over for the introduction quickly prompting me to ask “Do you mind if we take a photo”, after hello’s were exchanged. You can say that I’m never too cool for school to be enthusiastic and show that I’m a fan of the people I admire and enjoy as well.
