We're closing in on what is sure to be yet another fantastic MBFW at Lincoln Center, and we at District L are getting ourselves pumped in the best way we know how - stomping around Manhattan like megalomaniacal crazy people with scary electro from our "Runway" playlists at full blast on our iPods.
So yeah, sorry I came up behind you so quickly on the walk from the L last night - I'm not a rapistmuggermurderkiller, I swear. It's just that the sidewalk is so narrow, you're really slow, this Kavinsky is really head-banging, and I'm all cracked out on the Red Bull I've been drinking all day.
So what is District L hoping to hear in the tents this A/W? We'll tell you - without further ado, allow us to present our official A/W 2011 Audio Wishlist for runway!
…and no worries, it's not just a bunch of MGMT and Fischerspooner. It's 2011, you can relax.
1. Take Me Over - Cut Copy
Fun, dynamic, a good opener with a touch of doe-eyed innocence.
2. Little People (Black City) - Matthew Dear
Just the right amount of attitude, catchy but with some edge and mystery.
3. Make You Mine - Breakbot
Downtempo yet bouncy, reminiscent of Daft Punk without all the cliche.
4. Starlighter - Jupiter
Sexy - what could be more perfect than a song about a woman entering a room and demanding everybody's attention?
5. Motorcycle Boy - Mr. Flash
A solid "walker", with a twinge of roadhouse grime.
6. Empathy - Crystal Castles
We keep jockeying for Crystal Castles, and this is just the right song for the Mik Cires and Sally LaPointes of our world.
