The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill (Ruffhouse/Columbia)
Lupe Fuentes Gets Miseducated: Electronic artist Lupe Fuentes told us about her love for a Lauryn Hill classic.
Lupe Fuentes: It’s a profound invitation into a black woman’s mind breaking society’s chains. Every song in this album takes you on a journey. The stories are so deep and relatable. They’re about love, pain, survival, and power dynamics.
Lauryn Hill has always fascinated me as an artist and as a thinker, a woman living and speaking authentically. Not a lot of people are that brave.
This album was on repeat during my divorce in 2020. I have many memories of listening to it in my car, being in extreme pain, and feeling free simultaneously. Sometimes the universe talks to you through music. That’s why it is so powerful.
Lupe Fuentes Gets Miseducated: Lupe Fuentes’ new single “DIP” is out now.
“In 2014, Fuentes launched her own imprint and brand IN THE LOOP where she put out over 100 releases from friends like Kerri Chandler and Todd Terry while simultaneously curating new talent around the world. 2023 sees the label embracing more house and techno tailored strictly for the dance floor, which can be heard at monthly pop-up parties, and In The Loop radio show on Rinse FM. An established female and LatinX role model in the dance music community, Lupe Fuentes finds inspiration in sharing her story of witnessing positive changes of representation. She’s also currently working on two EPs, one with Cypress Hill’s Eric Bobo and another with Coachella 2023 artist, Juliet Mendoza. On top of that, Fuentes will also be sharing her story through an upcoming book which combines elements of biography and self-help literature.”
