ANGEL AND DREN

Vibes. Pure, unadulterated, unequivocal vibes.  This is the first concept that comes to mind when Angel + Dren walk into a space to appear, to work, to make everyone in the room who has come to see them perform feel alive, to do whatever it is they’ve come to do. The most brilliant part about the pair is that they are just as gifted as they are talented, applying the idea of performance to more than just the entertainment scene. Committed to an active and healthy lifestyle, Angel + Dren never miss a work out despite their busy schedule. We spoke with the New York raised and internationally praised twin DJs about everything from training to their signature turntable styles.

Tell us who you are, what you do and your story.

A: We’re a DJ/Producer duo from New York, born and raised in the BX. We love what we do. We love traveling, fashion and fitness. We are inspired by music, people and the city we call home.

D: It started randomly when Angel played on equipment at a friend’s place. That sparked her fascination. She said it was something we had to get into. We immediately went half on equipment. 

They exchange a look and start to relive the beginning of an adventure.

A: We started with Midi controller and learned from a childhood friend who is a DJ. We took it seriously from the beginning and practiced every single day for six months. We booked our very first gig at a bar.  It wasn’t until we moved someone’s turntables out of the way that we realized something didn’t feel right. It almost felt disrespectful to move turntables out of the way to DJ a party. We went back to the drawing board. We went to every borough to hunt down parts we needed on Craigslist. Today is a product of that.

So, how would you define your style?

A: My style changes on a day to day. Super playful some days. Some days, the complete opposite. It kind of plays itself out in my choices.

D: A little edgy but still polished.

 

How does your style differ from one another?

A: I avoid dresses. I love pants and shorts. I think our style is similar at times but we wear it differently.

D: I agree. We love chokers and accessories.

How does music influence your day to day look?

D: I need something on the go. If I need to transition from one event to the next, I need something that can transition with me. Versatile but comfortable. That transition is important.

A: Since we DJ, I’m always dancing and sweating when I work/dress. I prep for that. I wear tops and shoes to move like I need to.

Speaking of sweating, you are no strangers to working out. Your fitness posts on IG are an inspiration to many who follow. What sports did you play growing up?

A: We were Cross-Country team captains in high school. We also played basketball. Short lived stint in softball…

D: Scratch softball… it was that short. We were also cheerleaders in college. We currently practice Capoeira.

What is your ideal workout look from head to toe?

A: I love a sports bra that has you no matter what. I want to feel tucked in. No matter what, you can do anything in it.

D: I love spandex and comfort when I move. Whatever feels comfortable and looks good is ideal. If I know my fit is cute, it’s that extra motivation to get the work out done.

What are some things you do to keep/maintain an active lifestyle?

D: The funny thing is, there is no routine. We prioritize staying in shape. There are gyms and classes we use every day so we try to schedule. There is also Capoeira every day and it’s something you have to constantly do to get another cord*.

What do you look for in a sports bra? In your opinion, what’s the most important aspect of the perfect sports bra?

A: I need support. Needs to keep everything in place. No movement. Not too tight but not too loose. Minimal padding is key.

D: I need one that doesn’t stretch out of place. I need it to stay where it’s meant to stay.

 

As you know, we have Baron Von Fancy creating statements for bra customization, of the below pick your favorite:

A: Never Not Working Out.

D: Get it right, get it tight.

A: How about we change it to “Never not werking?”

*level of distinction in the practice of Capoeira.
