Twin Issue XVII

29.12.2017 | Blog , Twin Book | BY:

For fall, Issue 17 took a closer look at the expectations and realities of self-reflection. We met the young, African artist Kudzanai-Violet Hwami on the eve of her inaugural solo show, and discussed shedding the weight of self-doubt in order to soar. Elsewhere, sisters Nancy and Lotte Andersen discussed their shared childhood and creative pursuits, while actress Joanne Froggatt questioned the limitations facing woman who dare to age on screen. Patrick Demarchelier took us behind the scenes at the Musée du Louvre exclusively for Louis Vuitton, before we embarked on a Californian road trip with Chanel. Meanwhile, as Browns East — the latest bricks and mortar retail innovation to hit London — opened, we discussed the vital fostering of raw talent with Browns CEO Holli Rogers and Farfetch’s Chief Consultant of Augmented Retail Susanne Tide-Frater. Speaking of raw talent, musician Cosima revealed her most uncomfortable self under the lens of Francesca Allen, while model and artist Larissa Hofmann turned the camera on herself for a self portrait redux. Here’s looking at you, kid.

Mia Moretti: NYE Playlist

29.12.2011 | Blog , Music | BY:

With Christmas over, the party’s only just starting. Twin asked DJ Mia Moretti to serve up some New Year tunes to launch us into 2012. Originally from Oakland, the 27-year-old currently resides in New York and plays parties and fashion shows across the globe. “My highlight of 2011 was playing inside the I.M. Pei pyramid at Louvre,” she says. “I can’t wait to hear new original music in 2012.”

On New Year’s Eve she’ll be spinning tracks at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas opening for Stevie Wonder. Twin asked Mia for her nine must have tracks…

1/ HOLY GHOST! – I Wanted To Tell Her
This cover of  Ministry’s early 80s hit with both Nancy Whang and Juan MacLean featured on the track (and in the video) is the perfect combination of throw-back jam and nu-disco.  What a way to start 2012, right?

2/ KATE BUSH – Wuthering Heights
A lot of people hate Kate Bush, but I think she sounds like a sweet angel calling from heaven.

On NYE I’ll be in Las Vegas opening for Stevie Wonder, this is one of my all time favourites.

4/ JESSICA 6 – White Horse
If I had to pick a band of the year, it would be Jessica 6. This track was released in the beginning of 2011, but it is just as current, if not more, than it was a year ago. Its touches of funk, disco-pop, & filtered house make it an instant classic.

5/ MIDNIGHT MAGIC – Beam Me Up (Jacques Renault Remix)
Everything Jacques Renault remixes has a nice disco feel, but this track is especially dancey and extremely catchy.

6/ LITTLE DRAGON – Ritual Union (Tensnake Remix)
It’s the year of the Dragon, so I thought this Little Dragon track was appropriate.

7/ DJ MIA MORETTI & CAITLIN MOE – So Beautiful (Sex Ray Vision Remix)
This is my debut single, it was just released last week. Here’s a sexy remix from a couple of kids that go to Stanford and make intellectual dance music. Just kidding, I made that last part up.

8/ MAYER HAWTHORNE – No Strings (Classixx Original)
Mayer Hawthorne is also playing the NYE show I am playing with Stevie Wonder. He’s been on tour opening up for Chromeo, his live show is a treat if you ever have a chance to see it. This remix is by two of my favorite LA DJs, Classixx.

9/ FLEETWOOD MAC – The Chain
I hope that in 2012 you break all the bad chain and latch together all the good chains in your life.
