Most of us would agree that James Murphy‘s a pretty cool dude. He’s a DJ, a label founder (DFA), a chief figure in the revival of dance-punk, and, of course the mastermind behind one of the 2000s most beloved bands, LCD Soundsystem. If your life goal was to become a successful, working musician, you could certainly do a lot worse than James Murphy.

Unfortunately, because we don’t live in The Matrix (yet), there’s no technology that can put you in James Murphy’s shoes. Online publication Dispose–which hands out disposable cameras to cool people and collects the results–has the next best thing: a series of photos taken by James Murphy in Mexico City. Check them out below.
