CUBA SIEMPRE HA ESTADO EN MI MENTE. DURANTE LOS DÍAS DE EYEIFE EN LA HABANA, PAUL MILLER, UNO DE LOS DJS MÁS RECONOCIDOS EN LA ESCENA INTERNACIONAL, SE LLEGÓ HASTA LA PISTA CUBANA A REGALARNOS SU MÚSICA.

Paul Miller fue uno de los DJs que se llegó hasta Cuba durante la segunda edición del Festival Internacional de Música Electró- nica Eyeife Black & Tears. A sus 48 años y con gran reconocimiento en el mundo del dijing, Spooky –como se le conoce en la pista- decidió venir por primera vez a la Isla; sin embargo parece nunca haber estado muy lejos de aquí.

“Hay una larga y loca historia entre Estados Unidos y Cuba. Mis dos padres eran profesores, mi padre había sido abogado y los dos estaban relacionados con los temas políticos. Desde niño estuve muy consciente de la situación en la Isla. Cuba siempre ha estado en mi mente” Spooky tiene una larga carrera en el arte, que va desde la música hasta la literatura. Es graduado de Filosofía y Literatura Francesa del Bowdoin College y es fundador del colectivo Soundlab, del que formó parte con un variado grupo de artistas.

DANTE’S INFERNO MEETS DISCO INFERNO

DONALD TRUMP HAS made crystal clear that he has a great affinity for strongmen and for unquestioned loyalty of those who work for him. This week on Intercepted: Trump’s besties in Saudi Arabia convinced him that Qatar, the host of U.S. Central Command, is the premiere Arab nation sponsoring terrorism. Amnesty International’s Sherine Tadros and Al Jazeera’s Mehdi Hasan analyze the hypocrisy-laden, bizarre crisis. We also discuss the rise of Jeremy Corbyn. Jeremy addresses the Justice Department’s allegations about The Intercept’s recent NSA story and the prosecution of the alleged leaker. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes talks Russia, Trump, the media and his new book, “A Colony in a Nation.” DJ Spooky joins the conversation and imagines a Trump-inspired mash-up of Dante’s Inferno and Disco Inferno.
