Next up on the FMB Mixtape series is a mix from Inside Moves, the Belfast-based collective who have been a staple in the Northern Irish electronic scene since 2016. As usual, we fired some questions over to find out a bit about the mix & what they’ve been up to recently…

We’ve literally just got back from playing at Flash Festival in Italy – an amazing food, music and wine festival in the hills of Tuscany. The energy and people were incredible – would 100% recommend it. We brought a big Belfast crew with us, so the Italo-Irish vibes were strong!! We ended up playing an impromptu b2b with Myd on the Friday and then closed the Giardena stage on Saturday. 

We recorded the mix in Belfast at audio maestro and general local legend Tomas’ secret studio. 

We mixed it up with some new stuff we’ve been enjoying recently that we are getting summer ready and some of our older favourites we’ve used across our sets over the last years. 

Up next…

This summer is our 7th Birthday of throwing parties and playing in Belfast – so got a busy one lined up. We play AVA Festival next week, and then we’ve got Skatebard, KI/KI, Ross From Friends and salute lined up for parties across the summer – buzzing for it!

Next up on the FMB Mixtape series is a mix from Pagan, an emerging producer and DJ from Ireland whose debut EP was picked up by Lobster Theremin’s 1Ø Pills Mate and his latest release via Cheeky Music Group. As usual, we fired some questions over to find out a bit about the mix & what he’s been up to recently…

Hi Guys,

Thanks for having me on!

The last few months have been nicely busy, between finishing my next two EP’s and playing some great gigs. At points during the various lockdowns, I honestly questioned whether a career playing music in clubs would ever be viable again, so to now be playing regularly at home (and occasionally abroad) is a great feeling.

Most of the tracks were found whilst on various busses and trains around Ireland, but the mix was recorded during a trip to Bilbao in the Basque country. I toyed with different ideas for this mix, but in the end, I went for quite an eclectic mixture of different genres – which is how I tend to play in clubs. The mix begins on a house-y tip, then quickly moves between breaks, techno, and trance – basically all the sounds that influence my productions. I’ve also included some unreleased tracks from myself that I’m looking forward to getting out there over the coming months, as well as an intro that includes some audio I found on my phone in the voice memos app. It’s from a house party where I got to see a load of mates that I hadn’t seen in ages at the time, which felt fitting after the last two years!

Up next…

Next up for me gig wise is Life Festival, which I’m really excited about, and then in July I make my Bristol debut at Fields Of Fantasy Festival. On the productions front, I’ve got three different remixes on the way, and EP’s on two of my favourite labels.

  7. Denham Audio & Groovy D – I’m Ready
  8. Rove Ranger – Millennial Millennium
  9. DJ Plant Texture Pres. A662 – Baby, You Just Discovered A Ray Of Light
  10. ID – ID (Pagan Remix)
  11. The Chronics – Techno Sounds Better With You
  12. Mauro Picotto – Freetown
  13. Pagan – ID
  14. False Persona – Roll Call

Up next on the FMB mixtape series is a mix from Giulia Tess, the Italian-born London-based DJ and producer. Giulia has emerged as one to watch in recent years, with standout releases on Ross From Friends’ Scarlet Tiger imprint, Fever AM, and More Time Records. As always, we first caught up to find out about the mix and what she’s been up to recently…

Hey guys :) 

I’ve been quite busy this past month, had a pretty mental weekend last week hopping around from Leeds to London to Varese back to back. 

I’ve also been busy working on a couple of remixes – one of which is out today! It’s by the brilliant Art School Girlfriend and it’s called Good as I Wanted – it’s featured in the mix so listen out for it. 

I recorded and post produced this mix in my tiny bedroom in Seven Sisters. I’m always on the look out for new tracks and spend a lot of my time collecting and hunting for tunes.. Some of them I had kept back for something special such as this so I’m really glad I can finally play them. 

For this mix I wanted to be myself and play a bunch of tracks that inspire me. It was great because it essentially meant listening to songs that I really like for ages and having a play around with different possible combinations before recording.
It’s a mixture of techno and breaks and a true representation of what I’m playing at the moment in clubs. It’s raw but romantic, a piece in three parts – starts loud with a bite to it, goes quite dark with heavier sounds, then drifts into more romantic, introspective lines. 

Up next…

I’ve got a few more gigs lined up as well as looking forward to festival season. It’ll be my first time playing at a camping festival in this country so I’m looking forward to that a lot! I’m also working on my next release and a couple of remixes that will be out later this year. I’m really gassed to be doing this mix – thank you so much for having me.

Next up on the FMB Mixtape Series is a mix from Pablo Bozzi, the Berlin-based Producer, DJ and label cofounder. As usual, we fired some questions over to find out a bit about the selection & what he’s been up to recently…

I’ve been playing quite a lot recently. I’m super happy to be able to play again in front of people, last months have been crazy gig wise and it feels so great!

I recorded the mix from my flat in Berlin, I have my studio there,  and I have a DJ setup with 3 CDJ, 2 technics and a Xone 92.

The mix is composed of tracks I enjoyed a lot playing recently, it also seems that nice weather is finally coming back, so I was in that kind of vibe, a mix to drink a fresh Spritz with your sunglasses on to warm you up for your next party.

Up next…

I have a new 6 tracks EP coming up on Pinkman on April 22, some new tracks are on the way with my friend Kendal for our project INFRAVISION.

And I have also have another EP coming up on my friend Phase Fatale label BITE before the summer , and we have an album coming later this year for our projected together, Soft Crash.

FMB MIXTAPE 185 | SHAUNA (iTUNES)

Joining us for this week’s episode of our FMB Mixtape series is Shauna, the DJ and Producer from Leeds. Shauna is a member of the SISU collective and she also has a number of residencies, including Liquid Orange on Steam Radio and No Photos On The Dancefloor on Alto Radio. As always, we first caught up with her to hear a bit about the mix and what she’s been up to recently…

March has been so busy! I’ve been playing around Leeds a lot and working on the follow up to my first EP Original Workout, which will be out on Vief records at some point this year. I’m also currently in my second year of a PhD exploring the experiences of female DJs, so I’ve been finishing off the analysis of interviews I did last summer.

I recorded the mix on the Pioneer DDJ-400 controller in the bedroom of my flat in Leeds on a Sunday evening after work (love you Released Records). I only recently upgraded to the DDJ from the Numark Mixtrack Pro I bought second hand when I first started DJing 6 years ago, I thought doing this mix was a good enough reason to treat myself to some new decks!

With this mix I wanted to platform as many women, non-binary, trans and queer producers as possible. There are lots of incredible DJs/producers from marginalised backgrounds pushing the scene forward right now, but they often don’t get the recognition they deserve because dance music is still dominated by straight, cis white men. A lot of the producers I’ve featured are members of collectives attempting to change this narrative by educating and inspiring up-and-coming DJs of marginalised genders, such as SISU, BLVSH, Not Bad For A Girl, Shifting Spheres and The Beatriarchy.

Sound-wise, the mix is very eclectic. Transcending genre boundaries, it encompasses house, techno, breaks, electro, and club – I can’t stick to just one genre. It starts off relatively house-y and descends into peak-time warehouse rave vibes. It also ended up being v queer, which seems to happen with everything I do!   

Up next…

I’ve got several releases coming up and loads of gigs in Leeds over the next couple of months. So far in April I’m playing at Transform festival, Freedom Mills supporting Culprate, and Belgrave opening for Planningtorock, who’s one of my favourite producers and a queer icon so I’m v excited! I’ve also got a few festivals booked over summer, inc. Holistic Missile in Wiltshire in August and Hidden Doors in June with SISU, which is a multi-disciplinary arts festival happening in the abandoned Old Royal High School in Edinburgh (Google it – it’s sick!).
