Music for... Painting a dragon on a cloudy day in lockdown
‘Music for...’ is one of two Opera House Spotify playlist series where we ask friends of the House to curate playlists based on a theme of their choice: music for a particular moment, place or feeling.
22-year-old electronic producer, DJ and songwriter Nina Wilson – aka Ninajirachi – has already made waves with her cutting-edge sound of tomorrow. After breaking out with her “hyperpop” hit “Pure Luck”, she’s collaborated with the likes of Nina Las Vegas, and remixed tracks for Deadmau5, The Neptunes and Flight Facilities. Ahead of her set for our new digital music series Liminal, Nina has curated a playlist of perseverance and imagination:
“new and old(er) music that made me feel nice while i was stuck inside and soundtracked the creation of a dragon painting on a cloudy day.”
“this cocainejesus album, ‘christ figure’, came out in 2020, so i’m a bit late but it’s definitely one of my most listened to albums of 2021. it’s been my go-to for when i need to put something on that’s long and soothing with no skips.”
“i remember when sylph fossil came out as a single i listened to it for the first time on a train to work and then i listened again and again because the intricacies and subtleties were blowing my mind. iglooghost is toooooo good.”
Teen R&B sensation Budjerah has themed his playlist around love, and all the daydreaming and sweet talking that comes with a budding romance. Listen in, then tune in to his exclusive Opera House show for Liminal.
