Tuesday, December 10, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: MNDR



In case you didn’t know, MNDR is everything. No, really, she legit does it all. When she’s not producing, writing, or making killer beats for pop stars like Kylie Minogue and Rita Ora, she’s deejaying at parties or working on her own music. Last week, she kicked off a weekly DJ set right here in downtown L.A.–and she’ll be back for two more sessions! Check out what you missed the first time around, and in the meantime, get to know MNDR a little better in our interview below.

Monday, December 9, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Zara Martin



London-based DJ Zara Martin (literally) has it all—an affinity for ’90s hip-hop, jewelry designing skills and insanely high cheek bones. Basically, she’s a model with a great taste in music, and, well, what’s better than that? Get down to some of her favorite jams below.

Monday, December 9, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Afrofuturism


Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!

“Imagine a team of African archaeologists from the future—some silicon, some carbon, some wet, some dry—excavating a site, a museum from their past: a museum whose ruined documents and leaking discs are identifiable as belonging to our present, the early twenty-first century. Sifting patiently through the rubble, our archaeologists from the United States of Africa, the USAF, would be struck by how much Afrodiasporic subjectivity in the twentieth century constituted itself through the cultural project of recovery. In their Age of Total Recall, memory is never lost. Only the art of forgetting. Imagine them reconstructing the conceptual framework of our cultural moment from those fragments. What are the parameters of that moment, the edge of that framework?”

—Kodwo Eshun, Further Considerations of Afrofuturism. Playlist curated by Martine Syms.

We’ve been in serious holiday mode as of late, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the end of the year than with some killer party playlists. So, we asked some of our favorite musicians to do just that. Our Lady DJ series will feature 10 straight days of curated tunes to get us in the seasonal spirit. First up: Leigh Lezark from The Misshapes. She’s a part of the NYC-based trio who created sounds for some of the biggest runway shows (think: Zac Posen, Viktor & Rolf, and Henry Holland). When Leigh isn’t throwing down some stellar beats, she models for Gap, H&M, and DKNY (just to name a few!) and works as Chanel’s beauty ambassador. Luckily, she found time to talk all-things music and fashion and created her ultimate holiday playlist just for us.
