A Lovers Mixtape Photoshoot

by laurenlux

This past weekend I not only had the chance to interview DJ Mikey Wilson, but also to put my photography skills to use with a little photoshoot over in East London. The Lovers Mixtape event is taking place this Saturday night at Coquine in South Kennsington. Mike’s inspiration for this mixtape is mainly a house music set featuring some of the most up and coming artists hitting the charts right now. The tape itself, which I had was lucky enough to get a sneak peak of, has lots of vocals and recognizable tracks, with a touch of pop-dubstep to end it off. I’m not going to lie, despite my hungover state on that Sunday afternoon, the mixtape tempted me to party all over again. Mike has been DJing since the age of 16 in Toronto, so it’s easy to say that he knows what he’s doing. That said, I am really looking forward to this Saturday night! This is an a link to one of his mash-up productions:

Here are some photos from this weekend. They definitely give you an idea of Mike’s charismatic, and fun personality!

In the electro world, some of Mike’s favorite DJs are Madeon, Afrojack, and Bingo Players. When it comes to House music he loves Nervo, Alesso, and Martin Solveig.

Mike’s all-time favourite DJ is A-Trak, who he had the pleasure of meeting which was a very inspiring experience for him!

Mike uses blogs as his main source of discovering music. He often uses Salacious Sound and ElectroTO.

HURRY! Get your tickets for Saturday here:

Pure Shores (or maybe shoes)

HERE WE GO! Street Style Thursday, in celebration of the long weekend. What are all your plans? I’m starting mine off with some ridiculously good (anti-regime) food at Meat Liquor in Mayfair… i.e. burgers, chips, onion rings, chili dogs, and pretty much every type of fried goodness that comes to mind. YUM. Who doesn’t love a heart attack in a meal? Anyway, back to the style of the streets. Streets of Brick Lane that is (duh). Let’s look to these people for inspiration this weekend:

These guys are just kewl. Nuff said.

Blue hair. HELLO.

Happiness is a warm gun. Same with this killer coat.

Tom Ford sunnies & Levi’s acid wash denim shirt

This hair is cray.
