TV Shows to Get to Know Me

Inspired by an Instagram sticker trend from January 2022, Versailles presents TV soundtracks to get to know her.


Sai Versailles is a multimedia journalist and writer, whose work has appeared on Vice, Munchies, CNN, Courier, and more. She is also the curator of the newsletter and radio show, Cultural Learnings.

Under her DJ artist name Versailles, Sai traverses a range of genres with especially deep crates of film scores and soundtracks, as well as percussive and hypnotic electronic music.

Once described as radiating “the fond specificity of a mixtape smothered in fingerprints,” The Cultural Learnings radio show is a sonic exploration of one theme – whether a music or film genre, an artist, or a carefully curated “vibe” à la field recordings, sound bites, interviews, and more.

Versailles’ residency on Refuge Worldwide covers a spectral library of music where “rhythm and beat coalesce,” such in jazz, hip-hop, R’n’B, soul, reggae, and dub.

Sai earned an MPhil from the University of Oxford.
