What's That Song?

September 05, 2002

A DJ is only as good as her set list, much of which comes from obscure "white labels," independently released 12-inch vinyl with no title and no label, usually identified only by a DJ's hand-scrawled notes. DJs Colette and Rap break down playlists from recent gigs--at least those that aren't too secret to reveal--including some original compositions of their own.
