An exploratory collection of songs dedicated to the femme strength of the NON collective -- who (for infrequent readers of this blog) are a group dedicated to breaking down long-standing Eurocentric perceptions of dance and experimental music -- the 40-minute mix features everything from a lull-inducing Beyoncé flip to excerpts of Mykki Blanco's "High School Never Ends," all connected by poignant snippets of relevant commentary.
"For this mix I was thinking about how femme tenderness and vulnerability are not signs of weakness," Chino said. "[It's] about how strong and tough a person is that can present themselves to the world creatively while projecting these emotions."
So in anticipation of Friday, listen to the whole thing for yourself below and scoop your tickets here.
