It’s Thursday. A weekday which, thanks to the skyrocketing popularity of fun, freedom and good times, has become almost entirely absorbed into the beloved chronological establishment known as the weekend. In preparation for the ensuing revelry–which starts, let’s say, around 5pm–one of our favorite up-and-coming DJ duos, Immigré, has thrown up their top tracks of the moment onto a neat sixty-minute Spotify playlist. Power hour, anyone?
In order to beef up this blog post, the lovely Sanni Val Fleury & JSMN agreed to answer some of our questions. Find out whether or not the ladies like to sit in the shower below.
So, what’s up?
So excited for the New Year, and to be back in LA! Been doing some traveling, discovering lots of cool artists and styles from across Europe and Africa. It’s important for us because we play all genres, with more focus on female-driven and international tracks – which exemplifies who we are as Immigré. We really can’t wait to share with the masses! We can just tell this will be a great year of music, growth, and lots of dancing for us.
Can we get you something to drink?
Gin & Ginger for Sanni Val Fleury and Whiskey & Ginger for JSMN. Honestly, anything with ginger.
What are you wearing?
Usually, something shiny, in black and gold. And lose the pants, we’re not a fan of wearing pants.
Are you interested in anyone right now?
Definitely interested in anyone creating or sharing great music!
Do anything last night?
Always checking out music & fun events around LA! Catch us at spots like School Night at Bardot, Dim Mak Sundays at Drai’s, Artwalk, Sayers Sessions, Do-Over events or at after-hours spots in DTLA.
How late did you stay up?
Later than late. DJing definitely keeps you a night owl.
Meals or snacks?
Snacks on snacks on snacks.
If life could resemble any film…

No, that’s where the water starts to feel cold. Gotta stay up in the heat!
When was the last time you really froke out on someone?
Posi-Mob for life, no time for negativity out here.
What was the first thing you said aloud this morning?
Are you listening to music right now?
Constantly. Actually, just put together a fresh Spotify playlist of songs we’re obsessed with this month. We’ll be putting one out each month, so keep your eyes peeled. Mixes to come as well.
Will you text the person you like today?
Heck yeah, how else would he know?!
If we gave you $50, what would you buy?
Vintage shopping spree – always on the hunt for yet another sequined jacket.
Last three Google searches…
Hair dye, DTLA Sandwich, Lacrimosa.
What are you doing later?
Working on upcoming mixes that we hope to debut on February 1st, each one will have a sweet female name – gotta rep for the ladies! Also, researching up-and-coming artists and independent tracks for a short film we’re music supervising.
Can we come?
You’re always welcome to come dance with us! We’re currently booking upcoming shows around the LA area (contact firstname.lastname@example.org for inquiries) and planning a Euro tour for the end of the year, with stops in France and the UK.
