ICYMI: Nicopanda presented its spring 2019 collection, a neon disco cowgirl rave during London Fashion Week.
While we wait for the shipment of our adorable Amazon T-shirts by New York artist Hilton Dresden, we will tide ourselves over with the comprehensive soundtrack mixed exclusively for the runway show. It was created by DJ and producer Nick "Nightfeelings" Weiss, and includes modern mashups of Kim Petras and Teyana Taylor with classic Basement Jaxx records, among other savvy but unexpected transitions between the old and the new.
Weiss tells PAPER that he felt particularly inspired by femme power and pleasure as well as old-school acid house and electro soundscapes. "It's all mixed in rapid-fire style as if you were at the Disco Mix Club World DJ Championship," he says. "The vocals [are about] breaking free of all restraints. In the finale, Kim Petras is singing about her 'Heart to Break' while the Basement Jaxx ask her 'where's your head at, girl?'... [It's as if] she's losing her mind in heartbreak while being deep in the rave at the same time."
