Uchi's Cyborgs Party at Electric Pickle: "Bring Your Own Laser Beams"

Dress-up is officially cool again. So is being a sci-fi geek.

In our opinion, that stuff never went out of style. But even if you're not a nerd for robots, the latest nightlife endeavor from sexy, dark DJ Uchi will get you bleepin' and bloopin' like a vintage automaton on the fritz.

It's called Cyborgs. And it's good, old-fashioned fun meets space-age house and techno.

Had you ever tuned in to Uchi's Dead Air program on the University of Miami's WVUM 90.5 FM, then you'd know she digs the kind of dance music that sounds a lot like what you'd hear in deep space, if humans could actually hear in deep space.

"I was doing the radio at WVUM for three years, but then I graduated," says Uchi, AKA Isabella Douzoglou. "Cyborgs is an extension of that project. The music is basically the same music that I picked to go on the radio.

"I've always been enthusiastic about synthesizers and sort of '80s-sounding music," she adds. "Cyborgs was just a matter of finding a name for a group of people who like electronic music that's futuristic and scientific and different, while still keeping it within the range of deep house and techno."
