DJRePete starts the countdown to 2016 today with part 1 of his annual BTR Best In Mix. Today he’s spinning a choice set of tracks that ‘broke thru’ on the station in 2015, including alternative from Baio and Mike Pace and the Child Actors, electronica cross-over with Eternal Summers and Teen Daze, and folk with the Sugarplum Fairies and Little Lapin. Plus, Speedy Ortiz headlines a high energy punk alt set to power you into your holiday weekend. That’s your Wednesday start on BTR!
Join me this week for a conversation with Jenny Wu, an architect with Oyler Wu Collaborative and designer behind a new line of jewelry called LACE. Jenny's beautifully intricate necklaces, earrings and rings have incredible drama and delicacy, and are created entirely through the process of 3-D printing. On today's show, Jenny talks about the shared aesthetic and approach to design between her architecture and LACE pieces, the innovation 3-D print technologies are bringing to every field and industry, the materials and process she uses to create LACE, and more.
90-minutes of music for your Tuesday. Join in for some great tunes alongside your host, DJ Emily!
It’s Happiness Week here on BTR, and there’s almost nothing in fashion that makes me happier than a beautiful linen garment. Today’s guest, Zach Weinstein, is the Sales Director for CP Shades and son of the label’s founder David Weinstein. CP Shades is a collection of beautifully-crafted classic styles made in California from natural fibers like linen, silk, and cotton. It’s one of my personal favorites, and I don’t get much happier than when I can slip into a CP Shades piece! So join us today as we hear the engaging origin story of this unique brand from Zach Weinstein, who will also tell us a bit about the challenges of working with linen fabric, their unique production facilities in San Francisco, and the delicate balance they strike between offering their customer the familiar and the fresh. Plus, a playlist filled with some of my favorite tracks from 2015 (and the end of 2014), including songs from Emmy The Great, Copeland, and Mike Pace and the Child Actors. So join us for an hour of pure indie fashion + music bliss, with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!

It’s Disruptive Week on BTR, and here on Sew & Tell I got to speak with the co-founder of a new online retail platform that’s disrupting the fashion mainstream. Maxine Bédat and Soraya Darabi created Zady as a shopping resource that enables its customers to make purchases with confidence and conscience. Zady is a one-stop shop for elegantly presented, impeccably curated, thoroughly vetted selections of sustainable style, and at just over a year old, the site has already become synonymous with truly fashionable slow fashion. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Maxine about the high school friendship that started it all, their newly launched in-house Zady label, the shift in consumer perspective that’s growing and what it means for the future of manufacturing and retail, some of her own favorite spring fashions, and more. Plus, I’ve got a playlist full of great new indie hits, including tracks from S. Carey, Liverpool-based trio All We Are, and ethereal pop singer-songwriter Emmy the Great. So tune in and turn it up - we’re all about stylish disruption this week on BreakThru Radio!
