If you want to dance your day away, please allow me to introduce you to this mix by the always moving forward always moving us all the ways MISTERVACATION.
Writing below originally appeared in The Fader.
The Brooklyn DJ merges El Alfa, Evanescence and early aughts femme power pop for a good! ass! time!
So be blessed today with MISTERVACATION’s club mix here, 44 minutes of clever, chaotic fun. It’s a grab bag of old and new: Dembow legend El Alfa and goth-pop group Evanescence make appearances, as does Kelela and a clubified Whitney Houston. But the transitions are what make it truly sublime. Halfway through, Kylie Minogue morphs into Rihanna and Future’s iconic “Loveeeeeee Song.” I must’ve lost my entire shit. The power that that had, the influence that that had, the ingenuity that that had… I could go on and on here, but you should hit play and experience it for yourself.

Daniel Storm’s Stormy Daniel Mixtape #1
I love Stormy, what can I say. recorded live in one session. stream of consciousnesses ….. first four tracks are unlike the last.
THANK YOU so much Beach Sloth for your WORDS:
Poetry, politics, and DIY come together as one with Rose Pacult’s defiant “Daniel Storm’s Stormy Daniel Mixtape #1”. Rose Pacult employs her poetic sensibilities throughout the entirety of the collection, at times tapping into the playful harsh sarcasm of Kim Gordon. Her vocal style really rules supreme over the course of the collection. Storytelling works wonders throughout, letting the personal and the news merge together as one. A playfulness defines the entirety of the whole piece. The arrangements are kept to the essentials, sometimes kept down to a single lonely drum. Out of all of the thoughtful lyricism, a hope emerges, thanks to the power of Rose Pacult’s determination to see the bright light amongst all the darkness that can easily consume.
The collection begins with the blunt drums of the opener “stormy1”. A no wave kind of stream of consciousness comes to tie the whole thing together. Rose Pacult discusses the NDA Stormy Daniels signed to hide Donald Trump’s own mediocrity in bed. Brutality remains supreme while Rose Pacult’s sarcasm is a pure joy to witness. Swampy grooves help to anchor “stormy2” where Rose Pacult reveals her own astrological sign. Organs sound dusty and dying while Rose Pacult’s voice takes front and center stage. Dreamy vibes lounge about on “stormy3”. Rhythms have a ceremonial approach with the powerful “stormy4”. Atmospheric to its very core “stormy5” ends the collection on a surreal note, with the whole song seemingly disappearing into the air.
Rose Pacult sings the songs America needs to hear on the sharp biting wit of “Daniel Storm’s Stormy Daniel Mixtape #1”.
While working on an application that required me to search through my film archives my friend and I found this video I made with my dog Juli: unedited,
juli and rose, I’m sorry from Rose Pacult on Vimeo.
‘juli and rose, I’m sorry’ secures the loving history between 2 best friends that will never see each other again.
