MC’s Soundtrack to Making Magazines


Like it or love it, we’ve got one set of speakers and an open plan office here at Monster Children.

And, unless you’re the proud owner of noise-cancelling headphones, you’re going to be listening to the musical preferences of whichever office DJ gets called up to the decks that day. Luckily for all concerned, the music taste in here is consistently top notch which is why we’ve put together a playlist of songs that were on high rotation during the making of our latest mag, #57—songs that transport us back to the agony and anguish of putting together this magazine we can’t help but love. (What else would you listen to when carefully arranging Her Majesty the Queen onto the pages of Monster Children than ‘Lemon’ by N.E.R.D and Rihanna?)

In case you haven’t jumped ship to Apple Music yet, you really should. We’re on there in the Curator’s page, a one-stop shop where we’ve asked our favourite artists, photographers, writers, bands, etc. to give us the good word on fresh tunes. The first three months are free too, so check it out and give our playlist below a listen.

If you want to see the results of the playlist below, buy the Photo Annual right here.
