A couple years ago, New York-based English DJ Chelsea Leyland quickly rose the ranks from total neophyte to totally in demand spinstress. Her signature mix of party-provoking tunes—and eye-catching personal style—are renowned for coaxing the notoriously fickle fashion pack out from behind their too-chic fortress and onto the dance floor. Because we could use some extra heavy bass drops in our lives, we made a point of spending the day with Lady Leyland last week in New York. She was kind of enough to tailor make a special playlist just for us—and fill us in on what to wear to our next party.
