Make Believe Playlist Vol. 8: NYFW SS20

“For this playlist, my inspiration was the prodigal club-kids returning home from their summers away,” explains Jack Mulqueen, one half of the team behind Make Believe, a lounge and social club at SIXTY LES. “There’s that instant injection of life that the city is lacking during the dog days of August, catalyzed by the energy surrounding New York Fashion Week. It’s very easy for everyone to prescribe to, even if there isn’t a direct affiliation to the fashion world.”

“I wanted the playlist to reflect the onset of fall,” Mulqueen continues. “You start breaking out the all-black ensembles that have been hidden in your closet all summer, and the joyful reverence surrounding summer in the city is eschewed in favor for a darker moodier vibe. The playlist is an mix of some dark disco favorites, tracks that I wouldn’t be surprised to hear on the catwalk, some recent Balearic club hits that you would hear everywhere in Ibiza this summer, and I finished it off with a blistering industrial techno track, because, why not?”
