Joey Madonia built his very own ‘DJ Heaven’

Joey Madonia

Ever thought of building your own club in the basement having a good time with your friends? Joey Madonia from Florida did so and made his dream come true with this overwhelming DJ room inside of his house. As a Disco pioneer from the 70′s and Light & Sound Technician, he was responsible for many installations in some of the most popular clubs in New York and Florida. Joey has worked together with Larry Levan, & Michael Brody (Paradise Garage) and had close association with Richard Long and performed side by side with many big names in the House and Disco scene during the past 40 years. In 2013 he put everything together using his 30 years of work experience and 40 years of knowledge to buidt the perfect and unique club room. It took him 7 months to built his very own ‘DJ Heaven’. We are really proud to share these wonderful pictures of the buildup process and the finished room with you. And of course we had a really detailed interview with Joey for this project. Is this THE ultimative DJ room?


Submerged Turntable Plays Vinyl – Video

Submerged Turntable

We already showed you many art installations like the Wood Slices Record Player or some wonderful vinyl record art by Ted Riederer here on DJ rooms. Artist Evan Holm also uses vinyl in his projects a lot. He built this stunning art installation combining nature elements like water and wood covered with moss. The spinning turntable creates a huge whirl in the black inked water basin. Unfortunately the non consistent speed of the turntable leads to a loss of sound quality. But as this is art, we really love the idea of playing a record under water. If you do not believe that this installation actually works, have a look at the second video with the making of below.
