This week on the podcast series is episode 98, aka Raw Silk, aka Grace and Steph. We caught up with them to ask him a little more about what else they’re up to and about the mixtape…

We played at your afterparty in Camden after seeing the Bicep live show at the Roundhouse. Wow what an incredible show and fun party, those mind-melting visuals…! We spent our sunny May Bank holiday playing at the Percolate Queens Yard Summer party and the Field Day launch event in Shoreditch.

We locked ourselves in Steph’s cave/bedroom for a few days (pissing off her housemates) using her technics, and borrowed CDJs from the BBE Record store where Grace works.

Taking our name from an 80’s disco group, people may assume that’s all we’re going to play. We wanted to steer away from that but still wanted to keep our mix light hearted and fun, similar to our DJ style we hope. We’ve included tracks from friends’ labels and used artists that we really love and inspired us to start collecting and djing…Of course we couldn’t help ourselves and finished on a filthy, Italo-disco banger – a bit of a Marmite track but we love Marmite…

Up next…

This weekend actually marks the one year anniversary of us djing together as RAW SILK. We’re lucky to have a very busy summer ahead, so we’ve decided to keep the birthday party low key. We’ll be doing what we do best – slanging on records at our local Peckham pub, the Gowlett this Friday.
