Since being profiled in Behind the Scene this summer, Nectar talent buyer Colin Johnson has hosted crazy dance parties (baile funk, italo, "prince vs. michael") and acts like the Orb's Thomas Fehlmann, not to mention 2007 VIPs like Jens Lekman. And this month Johnson brings the double-whammy of Plaid (Jan. 18) and Kompakt's homme du jour Gui Boratto (Jan. 23)!
"Your Girlfriend Will Love It" read the promo sticker on Boratto's Chromophobia. And Seattle Magazine apparently loves our city's ever-more-happening nightlife. Here's an excerpt from a piece on Johnson in the current issue. More, and a shoutout to the Broken Disco crew, can be found inside. When Modeselektor sold out the October edition of BD, people grumbled that the dance monthly had maybe become "too popular." This kind of logic, familiar to anyone who lived through a '90s indie rock scene, is childish, and it bummed me out. Now that BD is profiled in our Living equivalent, I eagerly await response from the peanut gallery.
