ADVENT 2016 #22 – KIM ANN FOXMAN

Kim Ann Foxman is a name we’ve frequently mentioned on Lipstick Disco, the effortlessly cool Hawai- born New-Yorker consistently rises to our expectations, both from the booth and the studio. She first shot to fame as vocalist in cult New York band ‘Hercules and Love affair‘, but since departing the outfit she’s become a solid and highly reputable DJ and producer in her own right and paved her own successful solo career.

“Play and make music that makes you happy, and people will naturally feel that honesty” says Foxman, and her unique, distinctive sound, comes from incorporating, and building upon the nostalgic records from her youth, mixing original sounds and records from the 80s and early ’90s with nostalgic re-pros – expect to hear plenty of rave stabs, acid baselines and 909’s during her sets. Her superb selections and solid sets make her a favorite at Berlin’s Panorama bar, as well as securing herself a highly regarded residency at Good Room, in her home of Brooklyn NYC. This year, among a crazy gig schedule, Foxman also created guest mixes for Pete Tong’s BBC radio 1 after hours, and her buddies Bicep for their FMB mixtape series both in April, her cracking mix for Beats In Space in May, was selected as one of Pitchforks ‘Mix Of The Month’ and other awesome guest mixes include Fact Mag, Thump, and most recently NTS. Foxman also performed at Mixmag lab, in Nov and to round of December she did a cheeky little takeover of Resident Advisors Instagram account.

As a producer, Kim’s sound is reflective of her sets and equally as dynamic, holding the same ethos – with catchy melodies and her own alluring vocals amidst nostalgic roots. Her first release this year was a reunion with old HALA band member and Twirl label co-owner Shaun J. Wright, for ‘Destination’ on Pets Recordings, this was followed by a full EP ‘It’s You That Drives Me Wild’ on her own Firehouse imprint, which includes a massive remix from Maya Jane Coles. For today’s advent song, we’re bringing you ‘Give it All You Got’ from the EP. Watch out in January for her next EP ‘Energy‘ also on her Firehouse imprint, we’ll be bringing you streams of that badboy fear not.
