The best thing about Più Più a.k.a Giulietta Canzani Mora is that she’s not only a DJ, but a singer and songwriter. She takes this whole music thing very seriously, and you can tell by her awesomely obscure playlist picks.  (We highly suggest pressing play and scrolling through her trippy Tumblr ASAP.)

Wednesday, December 11, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Marianne Theodorsen

LADY-DJ

Marianne Theodorsen’s instantly-recognizable neon-tinted bob makes her a staple in the Oslo street style scene (proof on her blog right here!), but when she’s not showing off her killer Givenchy clutches, she throws down some serious beats. Marianne is part of the infamous Club Lollipop DJ duo,  and she was nice enough to make a playlist just for us.

LADY-DJ

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.

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

unnamed-3

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.
