LISTEN: Vashtie x Violette x Puma 90’s Fashion Show Mix by DJ Wonder

unnamed

When I did my Vashtie x Violette x Puma Runway Show in February, I was overwhelmed with all the details that go into a show. I didn’t take any of it lightly and in fact, found it also fulfilling. When it came to the soundtrack, I enlisted none other than the wonderful DJ WONDER. I knew he would understand my weirdo 90’s dream mix, from Big L to Björk…from The Toadies to Tricky. I knew if the live show was a hot mess, at least the music would be bomb. The cleaver En Vogue intro to my favorite Hole song outro. This mix is my favorite!!!

If you peeped the live show via Revolt TV, you can see how it turned out. If not, you can still peep it or just listen to this wonderful extended mix – thanks to DJ WONDER!

Birthdate: December 8th, 1966

Hometown: Glenageary, County Dublin, Ireland

Irish singer-songwriter, Sinead O’ Connor hit the music scene in the late 80’s with her first album, The Lion and The Cobra. She gained even more popularity when she released her rendition of the Prince hit “Nothing Compares to You”.

Sinead used her powerful voice to not only serenade crowds, but used it to stand up for what she believed in whether it was controversial or not. After performing a cover of Bob Marley’s “War” on Saturday Night Live performance in 1992, Sinead shredded a picture of Pope John Paul II as an act of protest against sexual abuse.

During her career, Sinead used her fame and platform to speak on war, gender roles, feminism, and religion. In 1999, Sinead became Mother Bernadette Mary. Though the Catholic church doesn’t recognize her priesthood, it brought attention to the roles of women in the Catholic Church.
