I love Yoko Ono because somehow she is tied to the house music movement.Yoko thrives in the realm of the underground! She’s the type of artist the loves the non mainstream material. Yoko Ono is the queen of the Avante Garde!. You know how much I adore this type of artist!! The memorable record for me is “Walking On Thin Ice”. This was release in 1981. This was the time when hip hop,punk and electronic music was at its infant stages.This record contained all three elements! Yoko Ono was born February 18, 1933. I was born on February 19, maybe that’s why I feel so connected to her. I see art in a similar sense. She is a Japanese artist, musician, author and peace activist, known for her work in abstract art, music and film making as well as her marriage to John Lennon. Ono brought feminism to the forefront in her music which prefigured New Wave music. Its said that say was the reason the the Beatles broke up. Maybe some of that is true. I think she took Lennon to new heights in spiritually and creativity. Yoko Ono is an artist I inspire to be!

More on Yoko Ono
Ono collaborated with experimental luminaries such as John Cage and jazz legend Ornette Coleman. In 1961, years before meeting Lennon, she had her first major public performance in a concert at the 258-seat Carnegie Recital Hall (not the larger “Main Hall”). This concert featured radical experimental music and performances. She had a second engagement at the Carnegie Recital Hall in 1965, in which she debuted “Cut Piece.

In early 1980, Lennon heard Lene Lovich and The B-52’s’ “Rock Lobster” in a nightclub, and it reminded him of Ono’s musical sound. He took this as an indication that her sound had reached the mainstream. Indeed, many musicians, particularly those of the new wave movement, have paid tribute to Ono (both as an artist in her own right, and as a muse and iconic figure). For example, Elvis Costello recorded a version of Ono’s song “Walking on Thin Ice,” the B-52’s who drew from her early recordings covered “Don’t Worry, Kyoko (Mummy’s Only Looking for Her Hand in the Snow)” (shortening the title to “Don’t Worry”) and Sonic Youth included a performance of Ono’s early conceptual “Voice Piece for Soprano” in their experimental album SYR4: Goodbye 20th Century. One of Barenaked Ladies’s best-known songs is “Be My Yoko Ono”, and Dar Williams recorded a song called “I Won’t Be Your Yoko Ono.” The punk rock singer Patti Smith invited Ono to participate in “Meltdown,” a two-week music festival that Smith organized in London; Ono performed at Queen Elizabeth Hall.

On December 8, 1980, Lennon and Ono were in the studio working on Ono’s song Walking on Thin Ice. When they returned to The Dakota, their home in New York City, Lennon was shot dead by Mark David Chapman, a deranged fan who had been stalking Lennon for two months. “Walking on Thin Ice (For John)” was released as a single less than a month later, and became Ono’s first chart success, peaking at No. 58 and gaining major underground airplay. In 1981, she released the album Season of Glass with the striking cover photo of Lennon’s bloody spectacles next to a half-filled glass of water, with a window overlooking Central Park in the background. This photograph sold at an auction in London in April 2002 for about $13,000. In the liner notes to Season of Glass, Ono explained that the album is not dedicated to Lennon because “he would have been offended—he was one of us.” The album received highly favorable reviews and reflected the public’s mood after Lennon’s assassination.

Four months after her husband’s murder, Ono began a relationship with antiques dealer and interior designer Sam Havadtoy, which lasted until 2001. She had also been linked to art dealer and Greta Garbo confidante Sam Green, who is mentioned in Lennon’s will. In 1982, she released It’s Alright (I See Rainbows). The cover featured Ono in her famous wrap-around sunglasses, looking towards the sun, while on the back the ghost of Lennon looks over her and their son. The album scored minor chart success and airplay with the singles “My Man” and “Never Say Goodbye”.

In 1984, a tribute album titled Every Man Has a Woman was released, featuring a selection of Ono songs performed by artists such as Elvis Costello, Roberta Flack, Eddie Money, Rosanne Cash and Harry Nilsson. It was one of Lennon’s projects that he never got to finish. Later that year, Ono and Lennon’s final album, Milk and Honey, was released as an unfinished demo.

Ono’s final album of the 1980s was Star peace, a concept album that she intended as an antidote to Ronald Reagan’s “Star Wars” missile defense system. On the cover, a warm, smiling Ono holds the Earth in the palm of her hand. Star peace became Ono’s most successful non-Lennon effort: the single “Hell in Paradise” was a hit, reaching No. 16 on the US dance charts and #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 as well as major airplay on MTV.

In 1986, Ono set out on a goodwill world tour for Star peace, mostly visiting Eastern European countries.

Ono went on hiatus until signing with Rykodisc in 1992 to release the comprehensive six-disc box set Onobox. It included remastered highlights from all of Ono’s solo albums, as well as unreleased material from the 1974 “lost weekend” sessions. There was also a one-disc “greatest hits” release of highlights from Onobox, simply titled Walking on Thin Ice. That year, she agreed to sit down for an extensive interview with music journalist Mark Kemp for a cover story in the alternative music magazine Option. The story took a revisionist look at Ono’s music for a new generation of fans more accepting of her role as a pioneer in the merger of pop and the avant-garde



I was hanging at a bar called Madam X. I noticed the erotic art hanging in the lounge area. I thought the art was very powerful,sensual with a touch a class!. Its was mainly women in Latex outfits!. The latex look enhances the curves on a women’s body especially in photographs. I was producing an elctro track at the time. I figured since electro is known for its dirty synths and driving grooves, latex would be the perfect name for the record.The record is aggressive and sexy at the same time. The images of women in latex stayed in my mind. I pitched the idea of doing a slide show video of women in latex outfits to the record company in Hon Kong that signed the track (punk pussy records owned by DJ Nipper). This is how the Dirty House ( another name for electro) record was born.

Think D.Ramirez’s underground smash Yea Yea meets the deepest and
sexiest desires that your mind can conceive.That’s how the track is
described the best. Dirty electro synths,live sounding drums,minimal
glitches,ultra sexy choppy vox sample and a devastating dark rubbery
baseline. Indulge in your sexiest fantasies.
Check out the slide show video





Avant-garde represents a pushing of the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the cultural realm. The notion of the existence of the avant-garde is considered by some to be a hallmark of modernism, as distinct from postmodernism.

This is what this track represents. Pushing the limits of electronic sound. Doing what your soul desires! Staying true to the art form we call HOUSE MUSIC. Living the underground musician lifestyle. Always listen to your inner artist!
AVANT GARDE…..the realm of my creativity

I always trust my creative instincts. I never second guess it. I wanted to test my listeners on this record. I sampled the voice from a record a few years back called “TECHNO VOCAL” This my most experimental track I’ve made. Avant Garde meaning abstract in the french language is what I always want to represent. The underground,untamed and uninhibited, this is what my soul searches for. No rules or limitations is what this records means to me.The sound of your subconscious is the AVANT GARDE side of you waiting to be unleashed! Embrace this energy and you will reach your highest artistry .
I live for the abstract..AVANT GARDE is a lifestyle.


Jet Black represents the infinite possibilities music can go to. It’s
about the raw sound that gave birth to electronic music. The Jet Black
color signifies no beginning no end, freedom to manipulate sound as you
see fit. Having the ability to become your thoughts. Prepare your self
for jet black sleek sounding tech house music. Looking beyond your

This track has big distortion to put your delicate speakers to the
Minimal tech sounds that tantalizes your subconscious. Hypnotic
synths to allow your thoughts to travel into outer space. Funky tough
sounding drums to give the track the ultimate groove. Jet Black is
designed to awaken the dormant of your creative mind!

JET BLACK was actually inspired by a track called KICK DRUM by FELIX DA HOUSECAT.
I wanted to use big distortion,lost of effects,futuristic sythths. Really basic sounding,almost like an old school house record you would hear in the early 90′s. The name JET BLACK came from someone describing DUB FIRE’s music as SLEEK JET BLACK TECHNO. This is the image that stayed in my mind while creating the piece of music. The model in this video an album cover goes by the name of Leandra Ryes. She is also a photographer. Find her work in FLICKR
