Dina was my DJ mentor in NYC, I was about 12 here and obsessed with crate digging and making mix tapes which I'd then send to Bootsy Collins, accompanied by personal love letters to him and his diaper wearing guitar player. This shot was taken at a hip hop club in New York, shortly after I started spinning at raves and museum parties in Europe. We'd have to stack up beer crates so I could reach the decks, but I was fascinated by the art of setting different moods while watching people get their dance on. Fun times, although no wonder I had a hard time relating to kids my age back then... I'm excited to start making mix tapes again and the opportunity to share playlists with you soon!
