i just got contacted by a pal george for a great dj assignment. i'm to do 9-10 minutes of music for a fashion show by lialia for genart's 14th annual fresh faces of fashion show...
they are inspired by sophia loren, monica vitti (pictured), claudia cardinale, and anouk aimee, spanish/italian summer nightlife and fellini films of the 60s and 70s, all with a modern twist...
i'm on it.
any suggestions for tunes? i'm looking at you, frank...
UPDATE: it's done. i used ableton to mix it super-tight. (also because my new vestax pdx-3000s and traktor scratch aren't in yet...) i'm pretty happy with it, considering how tight the schedule was for this assignment. (basically 36 hours!)
the tracklist is as such:
nino rota - la dolce vita
trentemoller - vamp
junesex - a finger or two
matthew herbert - gang of boys
flanger - how long is the wrong way
bukkador & fishbeck - decade
metro area - miura
smith n hack - strength and inspiration
riz ortoliani - tiffany sequence m.8
riz ortoliani - una sull' altra
gino soccio - dancer
la lupe - fever (sinden remix)
pete rodriguez - i like it like that (aaron jerome remix)
gotan project - diferente
gritos de guerra - buleria
if you want to hear it, i may send you a link... ask. i want to wait until i work out the rights with the designers before i just post it. anyway, wish them luck... some people get hella famous from winning this show.
