“The track, which revisits the hip hop burner that featured Rick Ross and others, features vocalist Zohra Atash’s vocals over the hi-hat saturated track, and its a fun fun ride. Stream that below, alongside the original. Hold on, did they just invent ‘trap goth’!?!?”

AZAR SWAN remix ACE HOOD and FUTURE’s “Bugatti” — Listen at MISHKA

Screen Shot 2013-07-17 at 11.20.35 AM


“Hip vixen duo Azar Swan (Zohra Atash + Joshua Strawn) are taking tribe-pop indie goth waggins and the whole of net music media by storm. All walks of switched-on early adopter are falling under their mystical, alluring spell. They bandy around chic New York coolness with more gusto than any moth who loved a flame and when their overseas tour hits, poppy-happy booking agents will make Azar Swan shows sell out with zero effort at all. They are on fire.”

“Celebrating touch, skin, and all sexuality, Los Angeles based band Von Haze delivers ‘Conduct Your Touch.’ The music video written and directed by Todd Pendu stars New York icon and fashion muse to Carine Roitfeld, Andre J as the androgynous love God(dess) ‘blessing’ four couples locked in love and ecstasy. As bodies intertwine gender becomes irrelevant in a film about connection and unity, inspired by the Lovers card of the Tarot and the Alchemical Androgyne. The steamy soft porn video filmed by Andrey Piontkovski also showcases a wardrobe styled by Zana Bayne including her own namesake bondage gear.”

THE WILD MAG says this summer “just got hotter” after posting VON HAZE’s new video



“This summer just got hotter with this week’s release of Von Haze’s music video for “Conduct Your Touch,” directed by Todd Pendu. The L.A.-based band’s dark guitar drones and cool, laid-back vocals are set to a sexually charged scene: immediately given the position of voyeur, we watch as New York City gender-bending icon Andre J. stars as the androgynous God “blessing” four couples who tumble in bed, their bodies interwoven such that lines dividing masculinity and femininity are blurred. The video cuts frequently, teasing us with brief peeks of each passionate moment: glances pregnant with meaning are exchanged; zippers unfasten fluidly; a single finger draws circles on soft skin. The caresses slowly crescendo to full-fledged intimacy.”

“Conduct Your Touch” is a sensual music video from LA band, Von Haze, that celebrates touch, skin, and all sexuality be it gay, straight, lesbian, and transgender (only accidentally timely in this current climate surrounding DOMA). The video stars Andre J, a NYC icon and fashion muse to Carine Roitfeld, as the androgynous love God/Dess ‘blessing’ four couples engaged in intimacy and ecstasy, where their bodies intertwine and gender becomes irrelevant (look for cameos from bi-gendered artist Jordan Fox and Dylan Monroe, both NYC nightlife stars). The film itself is about connection and unity and was inspired by the Lovers card of the Tarot and the Alchemical Androgyne, but with a little “soft porn” and fashion thrown in the mix. The video also showcases a wardrobe from 5Preview, Logan Neitzel, Muubaa, New York Sex Trash, Norisol Ferrari, custom pieces by Zana Bayne (X PENDV), Bjorg, Chris Habana, House of Malakai, Maria Black, Mordekai by Ken Borochov, and Uncommon Matters.

“This week’s choices are things I’ve been relistening to based on excitement for upcoming albums. The first is NanosaurS’ beautiful, repitched remix of this Chelsea Wolfe classic, which essentially turns the Queen’s somber original into an all-chrorus bass-groover. Lovely and mindmelting.”
