At Home With LWE: 10th July - Jossy Mitsu TakeoverFri 10th Jul
Taking over today’s At Home With blog is multi-genre super-selector, Jossy Mitsu. Having relocated to London a few years back, she’s quickly cemented herself as one of the top talents on the scene with regular outings at Fabric, Electric Brixton and Bussey Building, as well as holding down a monthly residency on Rinse FM.
Jossy’s picks feature the likes of Anz, Peshay, Skee Mask, DJ Stingray, G.O.D. and the Dweller Library. Catch her playing on the Hex stage this Saturday at J2v Virtual Festival.
Anz - Spring/Summer Dubs 2020
This hour-and-a-half mix from Anz showcases material she’s made over the last few months and honestly, it’s mind-blowing to me that a human could produce this quantity and variety of tracks with such mastery and still create an undeniable and consistent vibe throughout – whether it‘s soulful, dark or rolling, every single one is a banger in it’s own way. Also Anz is just the best person ever and an inspiration all-round!
Peshay Studio Set (1996)
A beautiful mix from Peshay that I feel really takes me on a glorious ride. It’s a 90s-futuristic blend of jazzy, atmospheric DnB and Jungle which never gets boring especially now listening in the context of music production, as I can clearly hear the influence of this era on so many of today’s sounds.
Skee Mask – ISS005
I’m always captivated by Skee Mask’s technicality and this release is no different, he manages to execute the blending of UK flavours with forward thinking and experimental composition so well!
G.O.D. - Limited 5
One positive thing about recent times is that during lockdown I’ve been able to rekindle my love for my vinyl collection, and I chose this 1998 Limited 5 EP from G.O.D. as it’s been in my wantlist for years. Listening to this track in particular has put a huge smile on my face!
This collection of literature compiled by Ryan Clarke at Dweller is an amazing bank of knowledge and an important resource that I’d recommend to anyone involved in dance music. I’m looking forward to continuing to work through this library to learn more about the history of techno from black voices.
DJ Stingray - Boiler Room Festival 2019
He’s probably my favourite DJ ever, and I‘ve watched this set back multiple times to relive being in that room. His selection and energy still manage to bring me joy through my screen every time, but it’s bittersweet knowing it’ll be a while before we can experience anything similar IRL.
