Water signs: “Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio – are very artistic, romantic and creative. When we think of grunge, for example, we think of Kurt Cobain, who was a Pisces, and Courtney Love, who was a Cancer. Water signs give themselves so fully to music that they can end up losing themselves within it.” (5/6)

Air signs: “Libra, Gemini and Aquarius – are all about communication, so any track that has amazing lyrics is going to be great for them but they can also love electronic music like techno and house. Of all the signs, the air signs really appreciate new technology in music most, so when it comes to new trends or music that sounds different, they will love it.” (4/6)

Earth signs: “Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo – are drawn to music that's more sensual, so anything from ambient music to soulful stuff like R&B or jazz and maybe even classical; they like music that's not too messed with by things like AutoTtune or reverb and is just pure, organic sound. I think they can also go to the other extreme and like very ambient, noisy music. They're very sensual when it comes to sound; it's all about physicality and the material world, whether that's harsh noise or gentle.” (3/6)
💬 7❤ 165Normal
Fire signs: “Aries, Leo and Sagittarius – in general are going to be drawn to energising music; certainly something they can listen to during a work out, whether that's pop or metal or anything that will get their blood pumping. They like music that's upbeat and fast and that they can move to.” (2/6)

A close Bambaataa confidante known as the DJ's "Fourth Son," Izlam had served as the international spokesman for the Zulu Nation for decades. But he, along with many high-ranking Zulus, left the organization last year after several men came forward alleging they were molested by Bambaataa. Some of them told VICE the alleged molestation started when they were in their early teens, living in the musician's Bronx River Park neighborhood. (3/4)
