Was going though records a few weeks back before Panorama Bar and pulled this one out again. Kinda forgot this cut on the B side of the obviously huge Schmoo. It Kinda comes from nowhere and it like a deeply emo italo stomper…with a jungle break… all very random but somehow makes it seem very fresh now. Good tool fodder!

Jess Farley caught our ear from her killer Ran$om Note mix. Beyond being a great selector it turns out she’s also pushing some real positivity into the scene by promoting an event called ‘Rhythm Sister’ aimed at helping women develop within dance music through parties, DJ workshops and beyond. We caught up with her below.
“Hiyaa! I’ve just got back from ADE and had a fairly hectic summer, so many festivals! I only started playing out this year so lots of my free time is spent at my decks or digging for music, loving it. I also work in artist management and at Love International Festival and I’ve just started a female music project called Rhythm Sister which is a DJ collective and network to encourage girls to get involved in music. So yeh things are very busy!
The mix was recorded in my bedroom in my PJs as standard ha.
Winter is coming! So I went a little moodier with this one. I enjoy loads of genres and love putting different music together so it flows and almost has a narrative to it. I’m obsessed with finding music from all over the world, I love breaks and I’m really into synthy, chuggy, percussive stuff atm, so it’s a blend of all that I guess. Oh and some self indulgent disco at the end ;)
I have a few Rhythm Sister events coming up and I’m playing Motion Bristol (with you guys!) on the 26th of Nov and Magic Door in London on the 10th December. Genuinely think I’m still depressed after Brexit so I shall be flying out of here and somewhere hot for Christmas ha.”

This amazing EP defo snuck below the radar, been getting so many IDs on it through our sets and rightly so. This is an extremely strong debut EP… the future defo looks very bright for this guy if this EP is anything to go by. Out on Phonica, don’t sleep!

One of our tracks of the year so far. Voiski is prob up there with our fav producers over the last few years, constantly binging something new and different to the table. Been hammering this one non stop since we received the promo of it, sounds unreal on a big rig. The whole EP is amazing with some electro and ambient cuts on there, check it!

Been a fan here of E Myers for a while, this is prob our fav cut tho… from the Love Hate EP this has seen quite a lot of support across the board, having heard this ourselves played by the likes of Ben Ufo and Skatbaard. Not usually a big fan of the 707 but it sounds great here alongside some pretty deep pads and lovely string work… always a bit of a sucker for a cheap trumpet too, but it works so perfectly in this.
