DJ & Poet
A world-famous DJ, poet, fashionista and tastemaker, Mia Moretti landed her very first gig spinning records on The Sunset Strip. It wasn’t long before she made the world her stage. She has since collaborated with some of the most prestigious brands on the planet (think Dior and Louis Vuitton), performed everywhere from Paris Fashion Week to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, and formed such a tight musical partnership with Katy Perry that she’s been called the pop star’s muse. Now, she’s come full circle back to the city she says taught her everything: West Hollywood.
Mia was filmed on The Sunset Strip at The West Hollywood EDITION, at the hotel’s rooftop penthouse and basement club, Sunset.
“I think that being on a journey with the people in the room is such a beautiful part of my job, and one of the reasons why I can do it night after night without it ever getting old, because it’s always such a unique experience.”
“Searching for the b-side and searching for that funky song that people don’t know, but they have to dance to because it moves you… I want to find that in life, in music, in my city, in myself, everywhere.”
“West Hollywood welcomes you with open arms. And that brings out such a beautiful side of people, and of humanity. I think if more cities in the world were like that, maybe the world would be a nicer, safer place for everybody. But I know in West Hollywood that it is safe, it is warm, it is welcoming and it is home.”
