Really loving all the techno heads having a cry on twitter about this right now.
She is a geek without being self-consciously so and completely open and unapologetic about it. Think she's great.
she's so bloody mad and eclectic, right?
She actually listens to that stuff
This is a bit attention seeking tbh.
Is another person's fun. Probably.
Because her taste isn’t as credible as you think it should be?
Fair enough you don't have to play a straight down the line 4x4 tech house set on Boiler Room but this is clearly just trying to be as iconoclastic as possible.
that's what was good about it though
They make selections like 2LiveCrew into Slayer into Outhere Brothers into Butthole Surfers into Wiley. This was just a torrent of tacky pop tunes. She was pretty much 'on brand'.
I don’t really mean to defend her, so much as say I’ve interviewed, chatted to and (non-creepily) observed pretty much all of that Montreal ‘circle’ over the past 18 months, and the truth is they’re extremely out-of-step, unusual people whose weirdness is unselfconscious and genuine. They might be slightly naive and insulated, but they’re not attention-seeking or deliberately iconoclastic, and I think that’s an interesting distinction.
