Ever find a label that you can be sure that you’ll dig 99.9% of what they release? For me, that label is Berlin’s Morr Music, headed by Thomas Morr. Not only have I discovered a ton of new music from following Morr Music, but it has always been home to many of my faves: Lali Puna, The Notwist, Radical Face. Seriously, peep their site. Quality.
When I was asked to DJ for Betsey Johnson at NY Fashion Week this spring, I thought it was time I sprung for a new set of headphones. I wanted quality, but something a little more discreet than the usual RoboCop shiny plastic jobees. What I found was perfect: the new-ish TMA-1′s by AIAIAI. Designed with input from badasses like Warp’s Hudson Mohawke and tested and used by some of my favorite artists: James Murphy, Ellen Allien, Hot Chip, and others.
