MOR ELIAN X STUDIO183
Last Friday in Mitte, we had the pleasure to spend a sun-filled afternoon with our friend Mor Elian, the ever so cool boundary pushing techno DJ, producer & designer, who just dropped her EP Cymatic Ring, kicked off her brand new record label FEVER AM & completed her US tour. The artist selected her favourite in-store designs at STUDIO183, hair & make-up was done by the amazing Bastian Casaretto, artistic director of AVEDA Germany. STUDIO183′s Mark Hunt took some snaps & we spent a relaxed afternoon in Mitte, catching up and getting into some serious fashion.
CHECK OUT THE RESULTS OF OUR AFTERNOON HERE.
STUDIO183: Mor, you have a very unique style in terms of music and fashion. Describe your personal style in 3 words.
MOR ELIAN: lazy, street, elegance
Did Berlin change your aesthetic and approach to music and design in any way?
ye, I adapted a slight more lady like LA hip hop style when I was there (nothing trashy was more sporty spice I guess) and I let that go as soon as i was gone, was a short phase, and didn’t go that deep.

You began collecting vinyls at a young age, when and how did your passion for music start?
My passion for music started at a pretty young age, I was influenced by my older sisters that were also obsessed and I would steal their cd’s and listen to them in my room on my own compact disc. Later on I took it much further than they did. Music was always an area I felt strong within, as I wasn’t so good in school.
You just completed your US tour. Highlights?
wow so many highlights, but visiting some places for the first time like Pittsburgh, Detroit, Tuscon and Portland was a very special. I met really good people with great visions and happy to see rave culture develop once again in the US.
What’s next in terms of music?
I have a couple of releases planned before end of this year. looking forward. other then that more mixes more gigging and hopefully some nice vacation time.
What’s your pet peeve?
When people walk up to me advising me how to play or what to play. i should invite them behind the decks next time to take over see how they do.
If you could take 3 things to a desert island, what would they be?
Well hopefully there’s food & water there so I’ll take some sunscreen and my iphone & some coffee too.
Your favourite designer and / or artist? And why?
I really like 69 in LA.
Why did you choose these specific designers for the shoot?
Just gravitated towards those pieces, it’s really how I dress!
You are also a jewellery designer, what inspires you the most and what drew you to the materials you use?
I think for me its basic shapes and play with those shapes. one idea leads to another, its an endless thought stream (check out Mor’s line MYRRH jewelry)
Who’s your style icon?
The only one that comes to mind is Gwan Stefanie. Sometimes it gets cheesy but she always makes it work somehow.
