posted in: Season 2, Series: Life Innovators | 0

Creating work your are proud of usually means holding processes and people to a high standard. Such is the story with Irina + Gilles when launching Fiction Lab NYC last year, a music blog promoting talented DJs with mixes and write-ups on inspiring new music. GIlles, himself a DJ (and a professional soccer player in a past life) and Irina (who works in Investment Banking) have built a life of trust and taste by investing in the things they love, and leaving everything they don’t–including the Turbo Folk music of the Yugoslavia. Listen in to their charm in #DiscerningTastes
