LADY-DJDJ-Nelleke

DJ Nelleke is a bit of an endangered species: a rare bird of a DJ who still spins using all vinyl only (no computer programs or iPad magic, just the real deal, a hauled crate of records to every event). This isn’t the only thing that makes this NYC beauty special though. Aside from being one of the most sought after party deejays in the city (she has regular gigs at Le Bain at The Standard, and at the Wythe Hotel), Nelleke McCowan is also a go-to choice for all sorts of fashion events, having taken over the tables at parties for everyone from DKNY to Purple Magazine to Refinery29 (amongst a host of others). If that’s not enough, she also hosts her own show on Know Wave Radio, and runs her own unique 90s-club0-kid style game that is so consummately cool it makes us want to give up and take up norm-core.

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.

The first time I laid eyes on Valerie Yum was in the sweaty back room of an infamous, now sorely missed Sydney party called Gay Bash. If memory serves me correctly she was being photographed climbing across a black leather couch on all fours, throwing her long hair back over her head, wearing an American flag leotard and no pants. There is a photo of this somewhere on the internet, but in the interest of preserving our friendship I’ll leave it up to your imagination. Not much has changed since then, although both of us have sensible bobs and Val’s gone from occasional DJ sets at underground gay parties to being the first person you call when you’re putting on a fashion event in Sydney. Here’s how she did it:

This summer we’re definitely hittin’ the highway in denim cutoffs, crochet dresses and fringe tops, but to make our Southwestern road trip totally complete, we’re going need some killer tunes as we cruise along the coast. Enter: DJ/model/It girl Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor. The 21-year-old daughter of John Taylor (bassist for Duran Duran) and Amanda de Cadenet (actress/photographer) put together a playlist influenced her NYC/California-via-London lifestyle and chatted with us about her road trip essentials. Check it out below!
