Internationally renowned music selector Mimi Xu aka DJ Misty Rabbit is set to play at FLY on Saturday night. A typical week for Mimi consists of hopping between Paris and London, DJing for top brands and curating music for avant-garde fashion shows.
Mimi’s musical tastes are as varied as her cosmopolitan background, which includes stints living in Shanghai, Australia, New York, and Copenhagen, with the majority of her time split between Paris and London.
This is a girl who doesn’t stand still. Mimi’s background includes working as an A&R for KUSKUS Records, in addition to curating music and DJing in various different capacities.
We were big fans of the work she did for KUSKUS, including the outstanding “Broken Heart in Paris” compilation.
Perhaps inspired by her borderless upbringing, Mimi’s taste in music likewise isn’t limited to one particular genre.
Check out the Misty Rabbit soundcloud page for a taste of the scope of her selections.
DJ Misty Rabbit first played in Hong Kong at Volar back in 2008. We were there to take in her killer set, which featured impressive song selection and expertise at building the vibe on the dancefloor.
For more background, have a look at the short interview with Mimi below.
