Eats Everything - Garage Quaranteam Mix
A world rave icon with a long list of chart toppers to his name, Eats Everything has been a cornerstone of the UK underground scene since the 00s. From his famed ‘Rebeef’ remixes to the legendary BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix appearances, the Edible boss has built a potent reputation as a premier 4/4 slugger. Confined to cooking up sonic feasts from home, he recently sprung a pleasant surprise with a special 90 minute garage treat. Listen back to the Bristolian native shuffle through some all time classics and new school bangers.
Daft Punk - Essential Mix 1997
Harbingers of otherworldly electronic love soul, legendary Innervisions co-founding duo, me, have made a behemoth impact on the music scene ever since their first appearance in the early 00s. A rare oddity who have managed to transcend into the masses while still keeping tabs with the underground, their iconic remixes and unparalleled productions continue to unite us all. Here is their incredible mix album from 2006, a timeless cosmic bridge between the old and new.
Jamie xx - Idontknow
Always one to blur the lines between radio hits and underground blow-outs, Jamie xx recently made a thrilling return to the air waves with a trippy new track titled ‘Idontknow’. His first solo release in 5 years shows off the artist reformed, giving a strong nod to the latest UK percussion-led trend as well as an ode to the sun-kissed, melancholy bliss Jamie that gifted us In Colour.
Sofia Kourtesis - Moninga
Peruvian born Sofia Kourtesis has nosedived to the forefront of the long list of exciting newcomers with her debut EP on Studio Barnhus last year. Proponent of lush hypnotic house with intricate synth play and interlaced elements of tribal, her distinct productions could be compared to early Four Tet records. Following her standout debut was an even more impressive 4 tracker which is quickly shaping up to be a modern classic. If we had to pick a favourite it would be this joyous summer-time thumper named Moninga.
20 Women Who Shaped The History Of Dance Music
While so much of dance music history is dominated by men, it’s easy to forget some of the incredible female artists who have helped shape today’s electronic world. From iconic vocalists, risk-taking label managers, scene-defining DJ’s, visionary artists and genre-bending producers, the amount of awe-inspiring and incredibly talented women involved since the beginnings of dance music is endless. The Black Madonna and Lisa Blanning, from Mixmag, countdown their top 20.
Sama’ - Boiler Room Palestine
On the topic of inspiring women, perhaps leading the charge today is Sama’. A Jordan born Palestinian DJ/producer propelling a whole country forward. From the conflict ridden streets of Ramallah to the world’s biggest underground institutions, her rise to the top is undeniable proof that anything is possible. Continuing to inspire women, creatives and free thinkers worldwide, as well as spearheading the growth of the underground scene back home, the Unity founder’s distinct brand of Middle Eastern-fused techno is a definite need in everyone’s lives. Here is her legendary Boiler Room debut back in 2018.
