Share the Vibe: tunes by Jess Oberlin
It’s safe to say that Jess Oberlin has made a name for herself in Eindhoven. You might know her from her fashion label JØ, her inclusive event platform PLASMA, and the KARAJØKE parties in the city, to name a few. Curious about Jess' favorite tunes?
Q. How do you describe your connection with Eindhoven?
A. Eindhoven is a welcoming multicultural place full of talented fun creatives. It's a humble city that takes a while to discover and to love. If you want to realize a dream or start something from new, it's a great place full of support. I love to live here because of the diversity of locally run platforms like Stroomhuis, Wallspace, PLASMA, DRUM, & Day Day Gay. It's full of young and old ravers who all party together. You hear them on the dancefloor yelling "We gaan beginnen!" This is a city on the rise, casually making an international name for itself bursting at the seams with humble cultural talents and great minds.
Q. You picked some songs. What does this list mean to you? Why these tracks?
A. With JØ and PLASMA we spread love and acceptance through celebrating diversity and blending genres. This list does the same! Taking you on a journey starting with some local legends like Kovacs and Fresku. You'll hear some hip hop, then it asks you to whine to a summer vibe, takes a hard left rave to classic 90's jams and hit the dancefloor with electric bangers. We close the list again with local underground legends Penik Ettek.
Q. What's the best party song?
A. Love Explosion by Alden Tyrell, have a listen.

Q. Who gave the best performance ever?
