In the true Kiss & Tell tradition, I have invited my very talented friends for another night of new and vintage dance classics. This one will definitely be a bit darker and synth pop filled. Party starts right after work at 8pm, at your favorite local Bushwick spot.

Antenes is Lori Napoleon, a truly exceptional techno and ambient DJ, and she is currently working on a new record for The Bunker NY. Lori is one of the most sensitive and creative artists/producers I know. Insightful and meditative, she creates art slowly and with deepest intention. I met Lori many moons ago through our mutual friend Adam X. Along with our friendship, we have a long lasting creative collaborative connection. I have been booking her, photographing her DJ press portraits, and documenting her homemade synthesizers (which are fashioned from antique telephone switchboards) for almost a decade. Lori always plays a more feminine italo and electro jams for her Kiss & Tell sets. I am so happy to have her back!

Lovatron is Angie Jenkins, my new Kiss & Tell resident, and one of my most reliable lady friends. She’s a 9-5 working girl but moonlights as a DJ and writer. Also, check out her sexy and fabulous "not safe for work" curated mood blog Angie enjoys setting up the night and laying the feels for Kiss & Tell, so come early.

Andi Harriman is a post punk, industrial and goth music scholar and divinely dark DJ. She hosts our fav sister party Synthicide, another monthly at Boss Nova Civic Club. My old friend Zoh, whose house Andi lives in, has been trying to get us to meet each other for years. We finally met one night at Good Room and have been friends ever since. Check out the new Kiss & Tell podcast she just made too!

FBI Warning is the synth filled brainchild of Beto Cravioto and Rogelio Ramos. I just saw them play an insanely good live set last month and I can't wait for them to release their new productions. I have witnessed Beto play some killer disco sets at Bossa. Last time I saw Rogelio singing I swear he morphed into the specter of Marc Almond for second.

DJ, producer and electronics artist Antenes operates a laboratory of self-made sequencers and modular synthesizers built in the name of rhythmic, sonic, and spatial exploration. Tracing the lineage of synthesizer operation to vintage telephone equipment and inspired by the Buchla 100, her curious studio discipline of manipulating repurposed switchboards was fueled by the desire to breathe new life into long-silenced machines, transforming signal paths through which voices once travelled into sequences that burst with percussive energy and evolving textures, bouncing sound through sound like so many distant AM radio stations on a late night drive. Her 2015 solo production debut, The Track of a Storm EP on L.I.E.S. reveals three tracks of otherworldly techno infused with "lazer shot synthwork, ghostly noise layers, muscular bass shapes and sparking percussions" appearing on the 2015 best-of lists for Juno and Fact magazine. A Brooklyn resident by way of Chicago, Antenes' eclectic vinyl DJ sets dive into acid-laced techno, shimmering electro, shadowy atmospheres and beyond, with a particular ear for odd percussions and syncopations.

Andi Harriman

Andi Harriman is a writer, DJ and goth scholar living in New York City. She is the author of the peer reviewed book Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace: The Worldwide Compendium of Postpunk and Goth in the 1980s published by Intellect Books in 2014. Her writing has appeared in the Village Voice, Noisey, Bandcamp Daily, Electronic Beats and LA Weekly, to name a few, while acting as contributing editor to and resident blogger for the Los Angeles-based art gallery Lethal Amounts. Harriman was published in the 2016 book Leipzig in Schwarz: 25 Jahre Wave-Gotik-Treffen and wrote the foreword for the upcoming 2017 book Gothic Romandie 1985-1995: La D├ęcennie Noire. She holds an MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design as well as a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University.

Harriman lectures regularly about the goth subculture and has appeared at Morbid Anatomy Museum in Brooklyn, New York University and Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, Germany. Her endeavors have been featured in Time Out New York, Refinery 29,and Red Bull Music Academy Radio. Additionally, she has a post-punk radio show at Newtown Radio called Black Door and a four-year residency at Brooklyn’s Bossa Nova Civic Club, with her dark industrial party Synthicide.


Lovatron is Brookyn-based DJ Angie Jenkins. She often plays at Bossa Nova Civic Club, and also at 99Sense, STAY, Savalas (no longer open) and a few private parties for organizations at NYU and at the Red Maple in Baltimore. She maintains creative blog Lovatron, collecting everything from edgy tracks by upstart producers and sensuous found web images, to intensely personal musings, dreams and sage observations of relationships. Music has been an ever-present part of her life, beginning as a toddler bouncing to her mom’s disco records, to finding full expression as a teenager immersed in the rave scene and later the Berlin techno community. Angie distills one key element: the ability to tell a story with music-- sometimes light and fun, sometimes dark and brooding. Her musical excursions can fix a bad day or make a good one better, but above all, they will make you dance.

FBI Warning is Beto Cravioto and Rogelio Ramos.
