ARTNOIR X GIANNI LEE PRESENT: TRADE THIS IN FOR SOMETHING YOU LOVE
Just in time for the summer, ARTNOIR is happy to collaborate with multi-talented creative Gianni Lee on our latest playlist Trade This In For Something You Love. Gianni curated this playlist to best represent his sonic inspiration while he painted during his time in New York. Each song not only evokes a certain mood, but they tell a vivid story of how his mind works and how some of these songs influenced Gianni’s work. Some of these selections speak to Gianni’s recent experiences, while others were played on repeat while he created. Gianni’s goal was to curate a group of songs sonically educate and physically stimulate the listener simultaneously.

BY DJ UNDERDOG
We couldn't think of anyone better than the supremely gifted DJ Underdog to get everyone warmed up and ready for an epic South African adventure for Black Portraitures. The God took it to another level with our latest collaborative mix entitled Joburg Soundscapes. DJ Underdog continues to push musical boundaries by blending multiple genres with hypnotic afro-futurism beats. He gives us a glimpse of the dynamic and electrifying South African music scene with artist such as Black Motion, DJ Cleo, Black Coffee, Dope Saint Jude, Babes Wodumo and sounds of Durban Kwaito.
Happy Women’s History Month! To celebrate the occasion, ARTNOIR has collaborated with two of the baddest cultural tastemakers we know, Kimberly Drew and Jenna Wortham (a.k.a. Black Futures) to present Maximum Hydration. The playlist is a cornucopia of sonic delights featuring artists from Tiffany Gouche to SZA that will feed your mind, body and soul.
For those who don’t know, Black Futures is a multifaceted project designed to preserve, document and celebrate contemporary blackness from a global point of view.
