There are two major forces that keep me breathing, moving and loving: music and fashion. I have spent the past 20-some odd years cultivating a particular aesthetic and distinctive taste in each of these fields, which often intertwine themselves in unexpected ways. Today’s mix is an ode to this appreciation and unexpected marriage; a sensory celebration drawn directly from the liminal depths where beats, threads and textures collide. The culprit behind this experience? Tamara Sky.
Sky is one of those girls who seems like she must have been manufactured by a scientist in the Himalayas for her exotic beauty, sex appeal and undeniable talent. The truth is, this globe-trotting Puerto Rican model, DJ, writer, graphic designer, fashion authority, Playmate Of The Year (2007), member of The Overthrow and resident DJ/host of the most underground taste-making parties, Lil Death, is 100% real. “Real” is all relative of course, when asked to describe herself:
“I’m a vampire robot with amazing ninja powers who is also a zombie with a flesh eating sex-demon alter ego from the Planet of Terror. >:)”
When she’s laying off the flesh and instead sinking into the decks, she is known for her unparalled music selection and her infamous mixtapes. Today I’m stuck on Coco’s Habit, Volume 3, which is quickly about to become JoAnna’s Habit, Volume Non- f*cking-stop. This evocative mini-mix is straight style and sex with its dark disco, horror movie-esque musings and indie undertones. It’s all about envisioning a hyperbolic slasher film when you close your eyes and then opening your eyes to see something that’s not too far off. Come see what I’m talking about when Tamara joins Boston’s wildest bunch this Saturday night at CVLT. As always, dress to kill.
