I began making these videos a few years ago for my friends to remind them of the good times we have… Like Ferris Bueller says — “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Adding “for a girl” to any statement is reductive, dismissive bullshit. To say someone is an amazing photographer, designer, DJ, writer, soccer player, web developer, whatever for a girl creates an arbitrary qualifier that diminishes the statement… We should all strive to be excellent in whatever we do, to be the best, period! Everything that comes after “the best” is just an excuse.
Kayper is an amazing DJ, one of the best (and I know the best). Her set at the Neon Carnival was probably the best part of Coachella this year, she’s got incredible skills and spins at the best and most exclusive events around the world. Which is why I hate when I hear people say she’s one of the best female DJs around, or she’s an amazing DJ for a girl. Like so many other artists, musicians, programmers, athletes, whatever — she’s amazing for a girl… or for a guy, or an Asian, or an octupus, or an android… she’s one of the best. Period.
I’ve had her Michael Jackson Forever mix in rotation for a while — it’s the perfect summer jam to get you through the day or to blast as you drop the top and head to Malibu. Download it and more hot mixes on Kayper’s Soundcloud.
