Madison Moore answered five questions we asked due to our upcoming RinseFM France mixtape with Unter New York.
Where are you based and what is the happening in your scene?
I’m based in Richmond, Virginia, about 2 hours south of Washington, D.C. Obviously there’s not a lot going on right now given the coronavirus pandemic, but Richmond is a very creative, arts and music driven city. The ABC laws here are no joke, like seriously, which makes running a club particularly difficult. But there are still a number of great below-the-radar parties like Ice Cream Social by Angel Flowers, Behavior804 plus tons of basement shows in people’s homes. Richmond is also home to Fallout, the only goth/fetish club in Virginia!
Where did you record the mix, and what equipment did you use to record it?
I recorded this mix at home using 2 CDJ2000s and a Xone92 mixer.
What tracks do we find in your mix?
You’ll find great tracks by some of my favorite artists like Rod Modell and Jasmine Infiniti, whose new album
BXTCH SLÄP is so good, plus other greats by Machine Woman, an unreleased track by Baldo & Josh Caffe, and a track by Savile that is absolutely one of my favorite new gems.
What tracks in the mix are special to you?
They’re all special! I think “Music for Four Sequencers” by Thomas P. Heckmann is pretty fab and has echoes of Philip Glass and I was very excited to include it in this mix. “Bliss On Top Of Bliss” warms my heart every time I hear it. Machine Woman’s “softcoresoft is the softest” is also great because I do want to see everyone dancing, especially right now.
How do you feel at the moment?
You know, I’m taking it one day at a time to be honest. These are such unusual and frightening times. So, one day at a time. I’m trying to cope by making fabulous new dinners, staying in touch, working looks at home even though there’s no place to go, sleeping, and reading things like Edward Enninful’s Britsh Vogue, Slave Play by Jeremy O. Harris and The House of Impossible Beauties by Joseph Cassara. I’m also watching fashion reality shows like Making the Cut and Project Runway. We need beauty in times of darkness. At the end of the day, the coronavirus pandemic shows us that capitalism does not work, so I wonder what kind of world we will return to once this is hopefully over.
If you could greet someone or send a digital shoutout, who would it be and why?
One of my personal obsessions is abstract painting so I would love to give a digital shoutout to Mark Bradford, who is hands down one of my favorite artists. I also want to shoutout all my friends who may be listening to this from quarantine or, I guess, quaranQueen. Stay inside. Stay safe. Keep dancing, and hopefully we can share a dance floor again soon.
