Being Sydney Blu Episode 4: “Toronto – There’s No Place Like Home”

What’s it like to be an internationally-known DJ and return home for a weekend of gigs, press and catching up with friends and family? Sydney Blu takes us on a journey back to her former home of Toronto in episode 4 of her documentary series, “Being Sydney Blu,” where she headlines the annual Pride Festival and spins into the after hours at former residency spot, Footwork. She also gives viewers a history lesson in her upbringing in the Toronto dance scene and what it was like to be one of the first from the city to break out internationally.

Being Sydney Blu Episode 4: “Toronto – There’s No Place Like Home”

We hear from her old friends and early supporters, along with former promoters who were the first to book her in the city’s thriving underground. As one of the few women to seriously pursue a career as a DJ, the episode is a unique look at Sydney’s determination and perseverance in her climb to the top and the people who helped her get there.

After a jam-packed set at the Pride Festival, Sydney and her entourage head to her after hours party at Footwork. As Sydney explains, she began playing at Footwork over 8 years ago when it first opened and the club and owners hold a special place in her heart. The night rages on until almost dawn and as Sydney ends her walk down memory lane, she reflects on the accomplishments in her career, with tribute to the city where she came from.
