Wednesday, July 16, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Lady DJ: Harley Viera Newton
If there’s one thing we envy more than Harley Viera-Newton’s prowess on the decks, it’s her effortless Cali girl beauty and killer NYC style. Seems like we’re not the only ones. The bi-coastal DJ has been pictured on the pages of Vogue and Jalouse, and recently became a Beauty Ambassador for Dior. She also has a deal with Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation – which makes the perfect candidate for a Lady DJ profile, wouldn’t you agree? Read on to discover Harley’s go-to party starter, her favorite DJing outfit, and details on the best party she’s ever been to.

Tuesday, July 1, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Getting Serious With MØ
MØ’s name takes a few minutes to pronounce correctly, but that doesn’t mean she deserves any less attention. In fact, in an age when performers and their outrageous personas are becoming kind of meaningless, MØ’s name—and everything else about her— is refreshingly profound.
Thursday, June 19, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: History Lesson: Three Girl Groups From The 60s You Should Know
I always assume that most people know about the greatness that was the girl groups of the 60‘s, but maybe you don’t? The Shangri-Las, The Ronettes, The Chiffons, The Supremes, The Crystals, The Dixie-Cups and many more all ruled the airwaves during that time with sweet triple harmonies conceived either by old man producers or themselves. Either way, they owned it on stage. They were the stars. However, there were tons of artists in that day who did not reach Mary Wells fame. These all-girl groups were breaking the rules before the rules were even made.
Thursday, June 12, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Angel Haze
Angel Haze sounds like a rapper, but she feels like a one-woman punk band. Towards the end of her recent frenetic performance opening for MIA at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Haze jumped into the audience. She was invisible except for the strobe of cell phones and camera flashes that followed her from one side of the crowd to the other, her powerful staccato booming through the waves of fans rocking out to her words. Haze may be young and relatively new to the game, but she has an insanely smart literary mind and name drops both queer theorists and rappers in the same breath. I spoke with the talented Detroit-bred rapper about poetry, fashion, and finding her voice in the industry.
