AND HER MISTICAL DANCE

Bruno Galindo July 2019 MUSIC Read in PDF format N21/2019
THE DARK VIRGIN CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE THE BEST DJ IN THE WORLD, MAREA STAMPER, AKA THE BLACK MADONNA, RETURNS TO THE ISLAND WITH HER CRUSHING RHYMES AND HER QUEER CHRISTANITY.

You don ́t know Marea Stamper. But The Black Madonna you do. What you don ́t know is that they are actually the same person, but not the same character: the latter is one of the most interesting figures on the North American and international dance scene. Artistically born at the end of the 90s in her state of Kentucky, her first activity was selling her mixtapes, recorded live at the raves there. Her artistic name (rooted in her Christian devotion and its corresponding imagery) as well as her androgynous presence (in line with queer precepts and totally unconventional in terms of feminine beauty standards) started to turn heads. At the beginning of the 2000s, she moved from her city to set up shop in Chicago, where her career took off. She produced her own tracks and billed some glorious sessions at the legendary Smart Bar, where they adopted her as a resident. Soon after, she started to fill dance floors (with her 2012 hit  ̈Alright this morning ̈) and to connect with a growingly diverse audience. After being named DJ of the Year by MixMag in 2016 and making headlines in 2018 for her appearance as herself in the videogame Grand Theft Auto, there are few people who doubt that she is one of the best DJs in the world. It wasn't in vain that she was invited by the Chemical Brothers on their American tour. Nothing else? Tons more: The Black Madonna is behind We Still Believe, her record label and party series that have become synonymous with inclusivity, diversity & positivity, is an ambassador for the Help Refugees charity and continues to support marginalized voices in the electronic music scene, unafraid to vocalise her political and social views. Also, she is behind Daphne, a series of talkshows centered around promoting women in electronic music, and she adds to that effort her publications regarding the topic. She will be in Ibiza this summer at ANTS and Circoloco. Mandatory attendance.
