NYC: tonight the Mobile Mondays crew welcomes the legendary Nicky Siano to their all-45s getdown. As the proprietor and resident music maestro at famed downtown nightspot The Gallery (’72-’77), Siano pioneered many of the DJ-ing techniques (beatmatching, EQ-ing, using three turntables et al) we largely take for granted today, creating the proto-disco sound via his preferred funky soul and R&B records , and mentoring the likes of Larry Levan and Frankie Knuckles in the process. Before his set this evening there will be a screening of his documentary film, Love Is the Message: A Night at the Gallery 1977 – which features a ton of great vintage footage and interviews.
