DJ Orange Calderon is a bomb ass DJ from H-Tahn TX, now residing in LA. Not to mention a gorgeous gal who can rock a pair of 1’s or finesse a form fitting dress – but that’s not the best part; this mix is. I played “Feels” through three times in one day, so now I’m sharing it with you.
She describes it as follows:
“The idea of FEELS was to take on the perspective of millennials’ progressive struggle with love & commitment. In a generation of people infatuated with ‘Lust over Love’; care & courting have all but dissolved – in real life, as well as music. Consequently, I think this New Age R&B / “Trap Soul” genre has emerged, using somber production, melded with drug induced, & carnally driven lyrics, to accurately reflect today’s “dating world” social-sphere. ‘FEELS’ is meant to encompass all of that; FEELING the drugs, the bass, the hollowness of the beats, the desire, the after effects, the void, the push and pull between people that genuinely want to care for you and ones that want to use you. – Lulling you gently enough sonically, that in the moment you don’t think much of the underlining message.
I used Sam Rothstein’s monologue from the Intro of ‘Casino’ because to me, no relationship better personifies the idea of ‘FEELS’ than that of he & Ginger McKenna.”
