LA native, Las Vegas-based DJ 88 recently hooked up with the fly women’s clothing brand Hellz Bellz to release a mixtape entitled, Bedtime Stories, which the official soundtrack for their Spring/Summer collection “Queens of Noise.” Filled with some of the most influential post-punk/indie artists of the late 70’s, early 80’s and today, this mixtape is one that will have you ready to rock out for days! Even if you’re not a big fan of rock music, I think Bedtime Stories is a mix that you will thoroughly enjoy.
Although most people may know DJ 88 as a hip hop/r&b/electro/downtempo/chillwave DJ, it’s pretty apparent that she also has long, post punk/80’s/indie rock roots. Featuring cuts by Joan Jett, Sonic Youth, the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Patti Smith, Blondie and a host of others, this kick-ass mix is heavy in girl power and packs a massive punch of in your face rock-n-roll vibes. My favorite track from the mix would have to be the classic cut “Kick It” by Peaches featuring Iggy Pop. How can one go wrong with Peaches?
With Bedtimes Stories, DJ 88 is continuing to make a name for herself as one of the dopest and most sought after DJs on the left coast. Her musical diversity is truly a gift and her mixtape catalog features a little bit of everything; making her truly a DJ for everybody! If Bedtime Stories is the first time you’re hearing of DJ 88, I assure you that it won’t be the last. Much like the Hellz Bellz clothing brand, the mix is cohesive, flawless, and extremely unique. You don’t have to take my word for it though. Peep the track-list, listen to the mix, and download it via Sound Cloud below! There’s also a video that follows DJ 88 during her visit to the Hellz office to put this project together. Awesomeness!
