As the house lights when on at The Stage in Lincoln Center for the Gottex SS11 show, a thumping melody instantly set a tone for the fierce collection that was about to hit the catwalk. At the same moment, those first few notes I heard had sparked my memory – I knew I had heard this song somewhere before but just couldn’t remember who it was or where I had heard it. Finally after coming back to my house due to extensive NYFW party and presentation hopping, I ran to my laptop to open my iTunes to search for that song! Browsing through my iTunes library I see the excellent compilation CD that came out this past spring from French lifestyle boutique Kitsuné and the ultra-hip London dance night Ponystep. I play every song on the album and then finally hear that same thumping intro I had heard back at Fashion Week. The song was none other than “Momma’s Place” by the fashionable and talented Róisín Murphy. This song has attitude and a tempo that will indeed put that bass in your walk (thank you Ru Paul). Enjoy!
