Lady Tulip aka Tulip Black, turning things upside down just like Diana Ross.
Her last appearance on The Joint was back in 2009 and today is the return of Lady Tulip. She’s not too pleased either after missing out on tickets to Beyoncé’s three Auckland gigs in October which means she will be playing the darkest, scariest R&B that she can find. Hold tight.
We haven’t figured out if he is officially DatA or datA or DaTa or Data or dAtA. Usually this mixed-case fetish would ring alarm bells and play havoc with our nerdy iTunes naming conventions but David Guillon has just released the funnest, guilty pleasure of an electro album for 2009 in the form of “Skywriter”.
Maybe the sugar rush will wear off but loved it so much had to play three tracks on the show today. Love the wailing guitars and emo sentiments (“Rapture”), vocoders (“So much in love”), and even more wailing guitars and synth stabs (“Renaissance Theme”).
Can’t believe we made it through that last paragraph without once mentioning Alan Braxe, Fred Falke or Justice.
