Spring is off to a polarizing start in the District and in Baltimore. Daytime high’s in the 70’s, low’s in the 40’s, and pockets of rain have been alternately interrupted by as many cloudless days as overcast afternoons, and I have been filled with different energies. Recently I did a couple mixes that were posted, with two different vibes The first, is the second entry into La Liga Zine’s #LaLigaMix series. Inspired by their first mix which highlighted Latinx artists across a number of genres, I wanted to focus on electronic music from women DJs, producers, rappers and publishers who are killing it!
I returned the favor to BVRNADETTE, who did a Melt Mix last year, by doing a short mix of some Nigerian pop, gqom and afrohouse, and was a great opportunity to play around with some tunes I played with this past weekend at 9:30 Club’s Backbar with Gonzalo Silva aka DJ Reck (Thread/Brick Bandits). Listen below, and stay tuned to the series!
