Minimoo, LESS @ Annex, and Resolute, for which she is a resident of.
Connie has also spun outside of NYC, in San Francisco, Miami, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, Vancouver, Ibiza, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Prague, Mexico, Rio de Janeiro, Athens, and most recently, BERLIN!!! In March 2006, Connie won the Village Voice DJ Spinoff Contest and spun at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. In March 2007, Connie spun at the infamous Sunday School for Degenerates party at the Pawnshop in Miami, opening the terrace for an all-star line-up! In June 2008, Connie spun at Canada's top electronic dance party - Piknic Electronik, in Montreal! For all US bookings, except New York, please contact her booking agency, Volatl.
When she first became a part of New York's dance scene, Connie was shocked to see how few women were DJ-ing the many parties around town. Never one to settle, she has been teaching women to spin for over two years. To date, Connie has had 15 students. In addition, Connie is teaming up with Halcyon Record Store to foster and promote local female DJs via an event called "Ladies’ Night," which features a new female DJ spinning on-site every Thursday.
Connie is producing under the name "conSTAR" and her first release is due out Christmas 2008 on Airdrop Records!
Abagale Fischer is a 15 year veteran DJ/producer and singer/songwriter currently residing in NYC. She's well known for superb track selection and technical skills, as well as engaging stage performances. Over the past decade she's held residencies and guest spots both nationally and internationally and has releases as a vocalist on Fade Records and Distinctive UK. As a producer and engineer, Abagale's most recent release "Rain on Jupiter," (Biatch Corp) gained support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Tim Green, Chris Fortier and Fred P.
A recent endeavor of hers is a multimedia/performance art based event company called, "MELT." MELT was developed to explore the bass heavy sounds of the Psybient International underground. MELT is currently morphing into a permanent moniker named, "Amunet Shah."
All forthcoming projects within this genre will be released under this moniker and will include all original vocals, with backing tracks produced and engineered by Abagale. The first E.P is set for release in March 2012 followed by a full length album release in late July. Amunet Shah will continue to provide a psychedelic and ethereal glimpse into the world of cinematic bass, while Abagale Fischer stays true to her following of House-heads and Techno connoisseurs..
