    Oscar Nñ Lets Us into His ÑORMAL in New Mix

    From one of the boys that brought you the QTPOC party Papi Juice, check out this exclusive mix for all your preparty needs

    It's only January, and yet the year feels anything but new. Thankfully, though, there's Brooklyn-based Oscar Nñ with a new mix to help turn things around. Today, we're thrilled to premiere "ÑORMAL," a thirty-minute sonic hug and homage to all the everyday superheroes (that's you) who might be feeling worn down by the daily grind.

    Oscar is one of the co-founders of the monthly dance party Papi Juice, celebrating queer and trans people of color, and just like the party itself, "ÑORMAL" invites you to restore and unlock your Papi Flow. The mix is a twisted take on the familiar, featuring favorites that get the sickest of treatments, like DJ Chi-C's "Travesuras (Juketon Rmx)," ClubAthletics take on the Pussycat Dolls' "Buttons," and "TEARZ (SM edit)" where Rabit and Santa Muerte take on Beatking's "Let Me Find Out." Plus, listen out for "Twitch?Queen (clubcorruption.exe)," quest?onmarc's edit of Rizzla's track – both will be guest DJs at Papi Juice this Saturday, January 30 in Brooklyn.

    So, welcome to 2016 and the new ÑORMAL, where you'll find refuge from and armor for the everyday hustle.

    Oscar Nñ talks us through doing it all, finding your flow, and the art of the cute comeback:

    “I was watching the Powerpuff Girls the other day and I thought about how they are regular shmegular girls that have to go to school and do chores but still had to save the world as a side hustle. I know a lot of loved ones that go about their lives similarly. Maybe not saving the world by kicking butt but more like by organizing against police brutality and immigration rights, creating and believing in their own art, or going to school, outside of their full-time, low paying jobs. I was also thinking about how even when we work on all of these different projects simultaneously, there are times when you can feel stuck. Which I think is a normal (lol) and inevitable part of the process, as frustrating as that moment can be. My ÑORMAL mix also happens to coincide with our Papi Juice comeback event Papi Flow. For two years, my papis and I were doing event after event every month. And we were exhausted and feeling stagnant. Taking the break got us feeling mad fresh and excited for the comeback. Sometimes that’s just it, you gotta step away for a sec to realize the value of what you actually have.”
