September 9, 2015

lola-langusta-djbooth-skyelyfeIt’s hard to believe I’m actually able to write this, but fall is mere weeks away (Sept. 23 can not come sooner)! Rest assured, there will be plenty of autumn-related posts, recipes and playlists galore on this site in the weeks and few months to come, but as we are still in the transition between seasons (does it not feel like the peak of summer right now in L.A.?!), my beautiful pal Sarah Roa (DJ Lola Langusta) put together a sexy playlist (scroll to the bottom) exclusive to skyelyfe readers that tells the story of kicking off summer, falling in love and heading into fall. If you’re a fan of nu-disco or future house, this playlist is for you!

“For this playlist, I decided to not just share some favorites, but also tell a story about a summer romance – which we have all experienced,” Roa tells skyelyfe. “I wanted it to be somewhat of a euphoric transition as we fade into fall. It’s a sexy and poetic roller coaster, leaving you in somewhat of a reminiscent dream state of emotions.”

Lola-langusta-skyelyfe-2The DJ is coming off of quite the successful sunny season, having spun in the same company as Tensnake and many other notable names at Brooklyn’s Full Moon Festival at the beginning of August. She then brushed elbows with New York’s elite while spinning at the Esquire in the Hamptons event. Next up for the fashionable music aficionado? She’ll be spinning at a Daily Front Row event during New York Fashion Week!

“This summer has been filled with so many new opportunities and basically building on collaborations and projects coming this fall/winter, which are on the hush but will be revealed soon,” Roa says. “The absolute highlight was playing the Full Moon Festival in New York, alongside some of my favorite DJs/producers, including Wolf + Lamb, Pillow Talk, Tensnake and the beautiful, inspiring, badass, Yelle. It was really inspirational to be surrounded by such empowering musicians and it fueled my excitement of producing my own music as I begin production working with multi-platinum producer Jay Levine. I’m very excited for what’s to come and can’t wait to play more festivals next year.”

SR: I’m equally in love with both. I wish I could spend year ’round in the tropics, but I do love the feeling of fall and driving my 69 MG down the PCH with the top down. It’s my absolute favorite. I love the fashion that fall brings and cool desert nights around a fire.
SL: Who are some artists you are friendly with in the music scene?
SR: DJ Henri, The Glitch Mob, Anna Lunoe
