Six more days, can you believe it six more days until the end of 2013! Where did this year go? Even though it is ONLY six more days until we jump into 2014 the YaY! Area is gonna keep it jumpin’ right until the end. Starting tonight with a new party produced by one of the Bay Area’s best DJs, DJ Lady Ryan and Chaney Turner of Social Life Productions going all the way the New Year’s Eve. This is a long list of things to do so review it carefully, mark your calendars and ride 2013 until it is hella tired (and so are you). First, check out my interview with premier Bay Area DJ Lady Ryan.  I will see you in the New Year, 2014 here we come!
PicsArt_1381807763158-1Miz Chris [MC]:  Where are you from?

DJ Lady Ryan [LR]:  I am from Hampton, VA. Southern rooted, east coast forever.

[MC]:   You have a new party called The Social Life with Chaney Turner of SocialLife Productions, what made you decide to work on this new venture together?

Chaney Turner & DJ Lady Ryan

[LR]:   Chaney and I collaborating on a new event has been a long time coming. She started throwing parties at the same time as I started DJ’ing. Her first solo event was also my first residency. We have come up together and grown so much over these past six

years it only made sense for us to take what we have learned and take our crafts to the next level. We both a have a strong work ethic and mutual admiration so i am very excited about what we are creating.

[MC]:  What can people expect from the party?

[LR]:  Expect to see your friends and meet new ones, expect all genres of music, and songs you haven’t heard.  Expect a classy vibe. We have some things in store that will give people a different experience!

[1522254_10202185093260839_1614133697_nMC]:  Tell us a little bit about this new venue, Parliament in Oakland.

[LR]:  The new venue is absolutely HOT. A gay owned space and they did an amazing job with creating an aesthetic that would cause one to want to look and feel their best. The VIP area is sexy, the sound system is top notch by OPUS. Holding about 250 people, the ambiance is classy and sophisticated and clean. I love it.ladyryan4

[MC]:  As one of the top Bay Area DJs, what made you fall in love with DJing?

[LR]:  I fell in love with DJ’ing because of the energy exchange, the dancers, the pressure, the climb, the creative outlet, the psychology, the magic. I love music.

Later part of the night sees you release all that no longer serves you, fill yourself with new life force and set your intentions for yourself and your communities as you welcome the new year. The ceremony will be facilitated through clear and simply steps that all can follow at times in one large group, and other times in smaller circles or as individuals.
