THE GROOVE IS STILL IN OUR HEARTS…
Almanova Music blew the roof of the Skybar in September with our first party featuring Horse Meat Disco from London, UK.

We are very proud to present a music, fashion and cultural icon in Calgary for the very first time ever, to a an intimate audience of only 200 peop…le.
LADY MISS KIER (DEE-LITE)
exclusive 2hr. dj set
She’s all grown up! She survived a fire, fought to get out of a major
label deal foreseeing the digital download revolution, tours worldwide
and genuinely lifts up any crowd with her soulful pioneering sound
whether singing live on stage or spinning her diverse set.
In the early 90’s she was famous for being the singer, writer, and
producer of the NYC Tech House Funk band Deeelite. After 3 albums and
3 world tours she quit the band in 1996 and broke up a rocky
relationship with her Russian boyfriend, DJ Dmitry.
She stepped out of the spotlight, moved to Europe, and began designing
her future by learning how to engineer, produce, and DJ, all the while
traveling the world as a DJ. After a decade of travel Lady Kier
returned to her home in NYC. She finally decided she couldn’t keep
silent any longer and in 2005 she chose to SING OUT the P-funk cover
of the anti-war song entitled “I Ain’t Bulletproof” at Lady Bunny’s
Wigstock. This lead to an Australian tour opening for James Brown, and
in the past 2 years she has been touring and singing her new material
worldwide, as well as performing Deeelite classics such as “Groove is
in the Heart”, ” I just wanna hear a Goodbeat”, “Applejuice
Kissin”,”What is Love?”.
Her new material has been a smash in Argentina, Moscow, Istanbul,
Sydney and dozens of other places. She still DJs and is just about
ready to launch her – a decade in the making – new material. In her
current productions, she has collaborated with George Clinton,
Shock-G, several P-funk luminaries, among others. Why did
she wait so long? “It’s simple really. I asked to get out of a major
label contract in 1996 because I could see the digital revolution
coming. I watched as fools rush in with DRM, and subscription
policies, tryna lock it down…which is why I wanted to get away from
the major label distribution platform. In the first place. It took me
5 years to get out of the major label-recording contract with my own
masters but it was worth the wait. I am more in control now than
