Listen to a new FADER Mix by MISTERVACATION Nick Sethi

The longstanding FADER Mix series presents new, exclusive DJ mixes from our favorite artists and producers.


Brooklyn DJ MISTERVACATION must delight in creating points of connection between disparate sounds because her new FADER Mix is full of them; each one bursts forth in a shower of renewed party-energy and surprise. The 24-year-old, who's a medical student by day, has become a staple in the New York club scene. Last year, she made an appearance spinning at Solange's Met Gala after party, and also performed at Afropunk Brooklyn. Now I think she's focusing on her studies; she took her MCAT exam fall of last year, and is currently anticipating her impending graduation.

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.
