Katy On A Mission – Katy B

Alright its throwback time!!

This morning I put on a Dubstep essentials playlist for my impending run. One of the songs on the playlist is this absolute amazing tune by Katy B! Hearing her incredible vocals kick the track off brings me right back to 2010. The year I became a Basshead. 2010 was a big year of change for me and I began to get deeper into the electronic scene. The bass scene blew me away and after my first show (Excision at the Starlite Room) I cannonballed into the bass!

But back to the song shall we? Do you have it on yet? Ok if you dont no worries but do it now! Ill wait :)……….ok now that its on lets get into it! If your a dub fan this really has it all. A solid build up, that wobble that just makes your body vibe and groove so fluid. Katy’s vocals bring elegance and make this a complete banger! Hopefully this takes you back to those early days friends!

I’ve Got My Mind Set On You-Karro Westberg (Phil Mac Remix)

Hot off the press and ready to be listened to by ears of electronic music lovers, I give you Phil Mac’s newest remix of Karro Westberg’s track, “I’ve Got My Mind Set On You.” Originally from Dublin, Ireland, Phil now lives in London producing the sexy sounds of swing and bass for the world to hear. Along with producing, he also is a pianist, DJ, and creator of Reality Decks, a VR DJing App.

Phil Mac makes it impossible to sit still with his prefect blend of Swing and Drum n Bass in this new track. It is not only groovy but finger snapping, shoulder shaking, and elbow dancing worthy. Combined with the captivating and soothing voice of Karro Westberg this new tune will be on my repeat list for quite some time. Check it out for yourself, and consider yourself warned that this content my be addictive!

Peace and Love

Feminine Medicine Vol. I Remixes- ALIA

Hello all you beautiful souls and Happy International Women’s Day to all you bad ass females! In honour of this day I am posting a remix album by a very fierce and feminine DJ , ALIA. ALIA came out with the album ,”Feminine Medicine Volume I”, last year and has recently came out with a remix album of the same tracks. ALIA’s music brings you on a journey into deep bass beats, melodic frequencies, gorgeous female voices and psychedelic textures offering a vast emotional and danceable landscape that opens bodies and hearts, a description from her Soudcloud page that was too good to describe any other way.

ALIA has been described by others as a female who is paving the way for women in the conscious electronic music world, and was named a “Woman Changing the Planet” by ORIGIN magazine. She is a mentor to other women creatives through her program “Creatrix Collective” and her private mentoring program “Feminine Luminary”.

My favourite track on the album is “In Your Skin feat. Heather Christie (DISSØLV Remix)- ALIA.” Give the album a listen and choose your favourite!

Forever a Female, always an ‘Equalist’!
