DAZED X YSL // ARTIST SUGGESTIONS
Every artist and track listed under has a connection to New York and its underground life. I’ve lised the artists in order of my favorites for the story.
Paris based up and coming underground electro techno artist, who is visiting NYC often with his partner Demna Gvasalia, the creative director of Balenciaga. Boyfriend has recently created soundtracks for Vetements fashion shows and for Balenciaga. He released his first album this spring. The tracks called “Frustration” and “Flesh” are definitely underground bangers of today and would fit perfectly to our film.
Boyfriend – “Frustration” // Listen here: soundcloud.com/bfrnd/frustration
Boyfriend – Flesh // Listen here: soundcloud.com/bfrnd/flesh
Brooklyn based noise artist.
Song: Dreamcrusher – Antipop
Listen here: soundcloud.com/drencrome/antipop
Born and raised New Yorker, doing queer rap in a very NYC style. Has released lots of underground rap hits during the past years. I know him personally, and together we’ve talked about possible future collaborations. Under is one reference song from his latest album.
Le1f – “Buzz” // Listen here: youtu.be/CZAjksQW2aY
4. BOY HARSHER
Industrial / electro duo. Their underground hit “Pain” is hypnotic and extremely cinematic. The band has played recently many shows in small New York venues and bars.
Boy Harsher – Pain // Listen here: youtu.be/H1Zm6E6Sy4Y
5. FIRST HATE
Copenhagen based duo releasing fashionable and dreamy electro music. They’ve had lots social media buzzing live shows recently during the Paris, London and New York fashion weeks. 100% in the radar of Dazed and YSL.
First Hate – Holiday // soundcloud.com/first-hate/holiday
First Hate – Girls In The Club // soundcloud.com/first-hate/girls-in-the-club
Legendary Paris based electro producer, part of the iconic Ed Banager Records. He has done the soundtracks for the past two Saint Laurent fashion shows. I love his music and wanted to include him on my list. His soundtrack for the Saint Laurent Winter -17 Show has especially a fitting song playing around @ 2:30 link under. I’m more than open to discuss with the artist about using and mixing some part from that soundtrack in our film.
SEBASTIAN – Saint Laurent Winter -17 Show.
