Since it’s “Throwback Thursday”, we thought we would focus on one of New York’s most notorious clubs: Studio 54. Recently, Ian Schrager, the creative founder, and Michael Overington, the dynamic manager, were interviewed by Dave Simpson. Let’s just say that the stories that they confirmed developed within the nightclub were simply, legendary. You will not believe everything that it took to create such an iconic scene!
Back in the mid-1970s, the big apple was on the verge of bankruptcy, resulting in a dangerous environment. With the alarming state, individuals would flock to clubs in order to forget about the world’s realities. With a bohemian-mindset, the then lawyer, Schrager, and his friend Steve Rubell, involved in the restaurant business, were in the process of launching their own nightclub.
After walking past a dated TV studio, located in the west side of Manhattan, the two up-and-coming businessmen felt as though it would be the perfect fit (despite the unsafe ambiance). They then convinced the studio owner, Jack Dushey, to lend them $400,000 in order to flip the building and of course, add lighting elements to create their ideal venue. The staffing needs were met shortly after which resulted in everything playing in their favor.
Ever since their first event was launched, the sets and lighting were, what Schrager could only describe as, “an assault on the sense”, culminating in a dance floor filled with undeniable and effortless joy. The escapism that New Yorkers were seeking was finally realized!
The crowd was a controversial subject for many. The venue had a strict door policy in place:
‘We wanted a mix of rich, poor, gay, straight, old and young … somebody topless could dance with a woman in ballgown and tiara’ -Ian schrager confirmed.
Keeping the “wow” factor in mind, they would dump 4 tons of glitter on the dance floor which also included a massive “man in the moon” hanging above it, and not to mention they would also bring in a variety of wild animals – including a zebra and a horse. We are sure you may have seen the infamous photo of the moment when Bianca Jagger jumped on the white horse – talk about horsing around…:
Many celebrities started to attend the Studio 54 events. The atmosphere was even more special for them due to the fact that no one would pester them for autographs resulting in them being able to be themselves and enjoy their time at the club. Big-name celebrities such as Donald Trump (who Schrager confirmed “was a serious guy” and never danced), Mick Jagger, Madonna, Diana Ross, and every other big-shot individual, made an appearance from time and time again.
Overington has confirmed that it wasn’t all fun and games. Having started as a cleaner, earning a mere $3-an-hour, he worked his way up to becoming the manager. He was the main reason why the venue stayed open since Ian and Steve were in jail for 13 months for tax evasion charges. Being a great friend, he would visit them in prison to inform them about the ongoings of the club. He truly was the sensible person who kept the staff in line.
Due to their large-scale and out-of-this-world venue, the backlash from the neighbors as well as the emergency response departments was prominent. Incorporating wild animals, cars, ice, drugs, among much more, caused several consequences to occur.
“You are in violation of the regulations by having a zebra in the club.” -an old letter from the Health Department stated.
Looking back, it seems as though the entire team behind one of the most legendary nightclubs in the world could come to the mutual agreement that “success made us do stupid things, like fighting the US government” and that they were “lucky to have survived it”. For the rest of us, looking back, it seems as though it was a spectacular phenomenon.

NWYR – Dragon

‘Dragon’ is the third release by NWYR, following the mammoth track ‘Voltage‘ back in June of this year. The song has an insanely catchy melody followed by an energizing drop. With a Trance build up and a distinct Big Room styled drop, The euphoric sounds of this song truly connect fans of both Trance and Big Room. The duo certainly entertain the Trance faithful by going back to their roots and we can only hope for more of the same.

Last weekend, Alesso joined Hailee Steinfeld, Florida Georgia Line, and watt to perform their latest hit single ‘Let Me Go‘ at the American Music Awards.
Opposed to his usual turntables, Alesso found himself in an unfamiliar environment as he played keyboard and even acted as a backup singer in their performance. However, Alesso being a backup singer may not be the most shocking thing that came out of the AMA’s last weekend.
In an interview with Billboard, Alesso admitted that he is currently working on music that is not meant for the dance floor. Instead, it’s a better fit for your headphones. He stated:
“The last year, I’ve been just in a very creative environment. I used to just think about what will work on a dance floor at a festival. Now, I try to put out a song that makes me really feel [something], that’s meant to come out through your headphones when you’re on your way to work, or off work in the car, [or] being with your friends. I’m just trying to make the most of each song wherever it goes, not trying to push it to a dance floor direction. If I want it to be a dance floor version down the road, I’ll just remix it.”
This confession has become evidential with his latest releases, which have all been more “pop-like” – such as his collaboration with Anitta on ‘Is That For Me’. “She’s the coolest chick ever,” Alesso said about his new Brazilian friend. “She’s the biggest pop star I think in history in Brazil, and now she’s working with me, J. Balvin and Poo Bear. She’s definitely spreading her music into this kind of markets.” The Swedish producer has confirmed that he has a handful of new collaborations with Anitta coming in the near future.
With all of these new singles being released, we would expect a potential album coming our way – but it seems like Alesso is still undecided about his plans for future releases. He had this to say about his upcoming projects:
“One day, I feel like I have an album on the way, the other day, I feel like I’m just going to put [it] out record by record. “It changes really every week. I’m just trying to focus now on the next project and the project before, and not try to think so ahead. That was my problem, and then it ended up being no songs, but Shots Studios is really there for me with all these things. I think they’re making my life a little bit easier.”
From his vocal collaborations such as ‘Calling‘ and ‘Years‘ to his more festival-like dance tracks including ‘Tear the Roof Up‘ and ‘Payday‘, I am confident that I am speaking on behalf of the EDM community when I say that we are devastated to see Alesso go down this path. Hopefully this pop music phase drifts by quickly and that he realizes EDM is where he belongs.
As a reminder to everyone of what Alesso’s music was once all about, here’s a throwback to one of his greatest performances.
