Catch up with STUD1NT as she tells us about the inspiration behind her latest mix:
“Eavesdrop” is based on songs that have given me different types of energy, possibly even discordant forms, but always lots of it. Sometimes clashing sounds are grating to the ear, but I try to find the tiny spaces where the lack of harmony is just right and the chaos makes you feel good. I’m drawn to the sinister, how it’s often veiled or disguised as something else, and how that in turn makes it appealing, even alluring. I approach all my mixes trying to evoke something sinister and sexy at the same time, especially this one.

For the last year, friends have been elbowing us on the dance floor, asking “when is Mask Magazine going to throw a party?” It took us awhile to find the time, and to put together a concept that we thought could bring something new to the circulation of high-intensity parties that occur each weekend in NYC.
We wanted a party that could exist as an extension of the anti-police and pro-rowdy sentiment growing both for us and our readership. We are already the opposition: how we do our eyeliner, how we reach out to our depressed friends, the music we listen to, the way we care about each other, the way we intervene. We’re the opposition in the spaces we move through: commuting on the MTA, dancing at the bar, smoking between shifts, where fucking ever. We wanted to build a party that would explicitly be this – a space for the opposition – a space that is both disorienting and empowering, a space where we can show our strength.
LRAD.NYC is our “area-of-affect” weapon, powered by our complete rejection of assimilation into the old world, and pointed at all the men in suits and uniforms fucking up our lives: move back, get out of our way, clear the streets.
