Nela Abib Never Kills the Beat
Who: Nela Abib
Where she was born: Goya, Corrientes (Argentina)
Where she lives now: San Telmo, Buenos Aires
What she does: DJ/Fashion Director
How she captures ideas:
I think my tool is the Internet. Argentina is far from everything, both in fashion and in the music industry. I am extremely visual so I research and watch a lot. I think it’s 50% music (your beats, mixes, techniques, emotions, and flow) and 50% visual (the perfect outfit, headphones, and generative art). I try to always be connected, studying trends, and constantly listening to music.
Her most recent artistic reference:
If she were a sound:
I would be a filter, probably a chain of reverb and iceberg.
She believes in:
I believe in love, honesty, truth, animals, earth, music, and good looking outfits.
If she could see social disruption:
The male chauvinist society and animal abuse.
Something great she’s read:
“Fashions fade, style is eternal.” —Yves Saint Laurent
Something great she’s seen:
The Angry Birds movie.
She needs to change:
I’ve got to study english more.
Why she makes music:
I was never happy with the music at social events I go to. I like being in the moment playing with effects, different techniques, and types of mixes, reinforcing emotions and climate that enhances the moment.
Nela’s WILD Wish:
To play on the catwalks of my favorite designers like Alexander Wang, Karl Lafergerd, MQueen, and in big festivals, like Lollapalooza, Coachella, or Burning Man
