This Saturday, September 12th at the beloved Milky Way Lounge, Boston will enter the Musical Universe of Philadelphia’s Radio Personality-Promoter-Label Owner-Producer and DJ, Venus 7 Diva of the Deep as ERATO hosts a very special Cosmic White Affair!
Venus 7’s musical inspiration began with jazz and classical music. She has a fondness for World Culture and its Traditional Music. In 1993, after attending a New York City warehouse party, she took to the tables. Since, she has played around this globe of ours! London, Tokyo, New York, New Jersey, Ireland, The United Kingdom, Hong Kong, seriously, her travels are vast! It truly is the call of the masses seeking to experience Venus 7’s “intensity on the decks.” Now, before I continue, I am testifying: YES, she is BAD!
Years ago I had the honor of participating in an all women event in New York and Venus 7 was on the bill. My word remains, I did not want to stop dancing because I knew I was never going to hear sounds or mixing like hers again. I never had until that point. B.A.D. Mamma Jamma. I was hooked.
Recently, Venus 7 shared with me her personal most inspiring moment in her DJ career. Once, as she DJ’ed for thousands during a Coney Island House Music event, a very polite, humble and kind man approached her expressing “she had saved his life.” Venus 7 dropped a long song in order to have a conversation with this being. He had been in a coma and his brother had downloaded a mix of Venus 7’s onto a CD and would play it for him. When he miraculously arose from this state, he did so to a “sexy and chilled House vibe.” The doctors were amazed. He felt “the music had something do with it.” He had been looking for her and found her during that event. He approached her to thank her. He stated she “kept him company and gave him a personal DJ session every time the CD would play.” She too was so glad he was better! Music is not only the answer, but a cure.
Venus 7 has played alongside Maestros Louie Vega, Joe Claussell, Timmy Regisford, Jellybean Benitez and many, many more. She creates, promotes and holds her own events while starring in guest roles for the parties of other amazing crews. “She has proved time and time again that her dedication to music is as strong as her commitment to deepening and enriching her community worldwide.”
Venus 7 continues to find “inventive ways of projecting positive and soulful messages to the masses.” Venus 7 “perpetually discovers and concocts unique and interesting revivals of different genres within the DJ and EDM scenes.” Not only is House in her collection, she also loves “lounge vibes with Nu Jazz, Nu Soul, Down Tempo, Acid Jazz, Lounge, Rare Groove, and Bossanova with a soulful twist.” We are in for it. In the best of senses.
ERATO Residents T.C.C. blast us off into the night and Boston’s very special guest Venus 7 will pilot us through the musical cosmos during this solar eclipsing new moon. WE ARE the magic in the air.
