ADVENT 2016 #19 – RROXYMORE

Back in July this year, I had the pleasure to DJ alongside rRoxymore, who we’ve selected as #19 of our advent – and I can wholeheartedly confirm, the Berlin-based French DJ certainly knows how to command a dancefloor. From her humble beginnings in the South of France, rRoxymore first began making music in a disused garage in the late 90’s, at the same time she began DJ-ing around Montpelier – her sound was  a fusion of organic Jazz and funk, with electronic grooves. Today her sets are an eclectic and dynamic journey, from Disco through to House and Techno.

Fastforward to 2016 and rRoxymore continues to display her diversity, with projects which take her outside of the box: In February she collaborated with the stylist Johanna Senyk, to create a soundtrack for the parade of the new collection of french brand Wanda Nylon, for Fashion week and Red Bull Studios Paris (you can hear the soundtrack HERE). From soundtrack to soundscape, she also dabbled with more atmospheric and experimental sound, for her “Where do we go from here” EP on London’s Videogamemusic released in July and can be demonstrated in her track ‘Safe (space)’ from the EP. Her second and most recent EP this year, ‘Organ Smith’ came out early November on Don’t Be Afraid and is a more traditional dancefloor affair, with three quirky acid / techno bangers.

Performance wise, rRoxymore continues to wow the dancefloor, both as a DJ and solo Live act. A busy schedule this year has taken her to; Mexico, Washington, London, Amsterdam, Norway, Switzerland, Miami + more, plus a heap of gigs in her hometown of Berlin, where she also continues her Berlin Community Radio residency. Guest mixes this year have also included BIS radio NYC, Dekmantal Radio alongside Shanti Celeste (who we featured as no. 11 in our advent back HERE) Rinse FM, Truants blog, and just recently a guest mix for Fader. There’s been no slowing down for her this year and we’re excited to see what she brings to 2017.

For today’s advent song, we selected ‘Organ Smith’ from her Organ Smith EP on Don’t Be Afraid.

ADVENT 2016 #18 – LA FLEUR

### Apologies for the delay in this post – our servers have been down and we’ve been unable to access the admin pages ###

While we haven’t directly posted about today’s advent before, she’s been mentioned in a few previous posts and is certainly a producer and DJ we’ve had on our radar for quite some time, the Swedish born – Berlin based DJ, producer and label manager La Fleur has really had a exceptional 2016, her busiest and most exciting year yet. The Watergate resident’s first release this year was ‘Waves’ on Watergate’s own imprint, as part of their first ‘Watergate Affairs’ compilation back in May. This was promptly followed by ‘Vervain’ another solo track for a compilation release, this time on Kerri Chandler‘s Madhouse label, for ‘Madhouse Ibiza 2016’ cementing her friendship with the US house legend. Her third compilation track in a row ‘Caged’ was released on her own imprint Powerplant Records as part of their monumental 5 year anniversary release ‘Power Plant 5 Years’. La Fleur‘s first Solo EP this year came in August and saw her return to Watergate Records for the four track EP ‘Hedione’. A remix for Superflu and Mr. Bass followed in early September, and late September her debut for Cocoon Recordings‘Chemicality’ as part of the Cocoon P compilation. Her fifth and final compilation track this year came in October, ‘Seven Suns’ was part of Coincidance Secret Festivals compilation ‘Coincidance Beats Vol 2’ on Deeplomatic Recordings. La Fleur‘s final release this year, was a reworking of one of her early productions ‘Flowerhead’ which she released once again on her own Powerplant imprint, with remixes from herself and two other strong ladies Dana Ruh and Cassy.

As well as having a busy release schedule, La Fleur has been making huge waves with her DJ-ing too. An incredible Boiler Room performance alongside Richie Hawtin and Dubfire, (Listen HERE watch HERE) set a precedent for her in the Techno spectrum. She also made her Mixmag Lab debut alongside B.Traits back in March for their international women’s day special (watch HERE). Throughout this year, she also delivered radio mixes some of radio’s finest, including Pete Tong’s show on Evolution in USA in Feb and mixes for Heidi in Jan, a B2B with B.Traits for her show in May and four further mixes for B.Traits in July for – all on UK’s BBC Radio1. All this on top of a full gig schedule, it’s fair to say she’s built up quite some momentum this year and we’ll certainly make sure we bring you more news from La Fleur in 2017.

We had a lot to choose from for today’s advent track, but we selected the bubbly tech house / techno track ‘Bloomer’ from her Hedione EP.

ADVENT 2016 #17 – KATE SIMKO

Chicago born / London based Kate Simko, is No. 17 of our advent today. Kate has been massively pushing the boundaries of Electronic Dance Music in 2016, with exciting and innovative results. For more than a decade Kate has been making waves with her unique flavoured house music, inspired by her home town of Chicago, but this year the classically trained Pianist really went back to her classical routes, with a continuation and development of her incredible genre-bending project The ‘London Electronic Orchestra’ culminating in a full album and Live orchestral performances thereof.

The self-titled album ‘Kate Simko and London Electronic Orchestra’ was released in May on The Vinyl Factory, and comprises of an 11 track album, composed by Kate and realised by her seven piece all-female string ensemble, which delicately blends Kate‘s classical training with her passion for electronic music. Succulent strings, delicately swathed by by swirling synths and synthetic beats, create this intimate and innovative marriage of classical and contemporary. While Kate has been performing live with her ensemble since 2014, debuting at The Britten Theatre at The Royal College of Music, and going on to perform at The Roundhouse for iTunes festival, LEAF Festival, Latitude, Boiler Room in Ibiza, Bestival, Shoreditch House and more, this year saw a monumental debut with The London Electronic Orchestra at the highly prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

As well as the LEO project, Kate also continues her work solo as a DJ and this year a solid schedule of gigs have seen her play at venues across the globe, from sets at; The BPM festival Mexico, Kater Blau in Berlin, DC-10 in Ibiza, Output in NYC + many more, as well as London’s seminal Fabric club, who she very vocally supported after their closure this year, and produced a track to help with the savefabric campaign, which you can listen to HERE:

For todays advent song, we wanted to bring you one of Kates tracks with The London Electronic Orchestra, and we chose Kate’s Dub version of ‘Waiting For Games’ which comes from a more recent EP of dance floor versions of the album track. Listen to the Full EP HERE, and make sure you check out the album HERE.

ADVENT 2016 #15 – NINA KRAVIZ

With all the end of year lists being printed, todays advent is a name that appears frequently among those lists. Nina Kraviz was recently announced as Resident Advisors top 22 and Mixmags top 5 DJ from 2016. The Siberian DJ, has often sparked attention with her stunning looks, opening discussions about feminism and sexuality in the industry, but the Dentist-turned DJ is certainly not just a pretty face and anyone who’s been lucky enough to witness one of her sets, will understand why she’s revered among the worlds finest DJ’s – a true entertainer, an incredible selector and seamless mixer, one of Techno’s top dogs and true talents.

While she’s been floating around at the top for a while, she’s not complacent and she totally brought it in 2016, thumbing through the line-ups of the major global electronic festivals, there are very few this year which didn’t include Nina and she’s already been announced for Sonar, Field Day and Awakenings for 2017.  A huge presence in Ibiza, inclduing residencies and guest sets at DC-10, Amnesia and Space. Kraviz also just this month released a mix for the highly esteemed Fabric mix series and this year she has been hosting a monthly BBC Radio 1 residency.

ADVENT 2016 #14 – HONEY DIJON

Honey Dijon is a name I’ve heard celebrated for quite some time, as well as being an exceptional DJ and producer, as an openly Trans Black woman, she’s also a incredible role model for both the Trans community and women of colour, promoting diversity and equality in the music industry and beyond. I hadn’t managed to catch one of her sets before – until this Summer, when I witnessed her smash the shutters off Panorama bar with what was undoubtedly for me for best DJ set I experienced this year. Honey weaves through genres seamlessly and at times during her set, I felt so excited I literally thought was going to combust, then just when you think it can’t get any better, she elevates you that little bit more and then just keeps on giving. I’ve seen her several times since then and each the same story, it’s no wonder Mixmag announced her as no 11 in their top 20 DJ’s of 2016, published just yesterday.

Honey has had an exceptional 2016 – a full diary of gigs, both at home in the US, across the pond in Europe and even taking in an Australian tour for December. With regular appearances alongside her mentor and sidekick Derrick Carter, guest appearances on The Black Madonna’s US tour and Heidi’s XOYO residency, and regular sets at Berlin’s Panorama bar, demonstrating how sought-after and in-demand she is. Honey provided mixes for Mixmag, I-D Mag, Defected In The House and Heidi’s radio 1 show this year.

Release wise, in October she buddied up with Seven Davis Junior, for ‘Houze’ EP on Classic Music Company and she created a collaborative remix with Argy for Freaks’ – ‘He’s Angry‘. Honey also teamed up with Argy for their own release ‘Just Fierce’ released on These Days back in Feb – a homage to the NYC ballroom scene, with tinges of Acid and a title which quite aptly describes the lady herself, so it seems fitting we should bring you this track for todays advent.

ADVENT 2016 #12 – SHINEDOE

Amsterdam based Shinedoe first came to our attention back in April this year with her remix of Mars Bill‘s ‘Breath’ (which we featured on the blog HERE) we’ve been keeping a watchful eye since, but with over two decades of experience under her belt, she’s certainly no newbie on the scene. After several years of entertaining many a dancefloor, Shinedoe released her first track in 2004, the same year she launched her own label Intacto and hasn’t looked back since. Fast Forward to 2016, and along with a steady stream of DJ appearances, Shinedoe‘s releases have been coming out thick and fast. As well as her Mars Bill remix, she’s also had solo tracks out on MB Elektronics ‘Materia Ibiza Comp’ and provided the title track for the 4 track V.A EP ‘Mirror Lines’ on Idaban. This year Shinedoe has also had three EP releases on her own Intacto imprint, two of which were remix EP’s of her previous road 777 EP – Part One includes remixes from Ben Simms and Daniel Stefanik, Part Two includes remixes from Milton Bradley, 2000 and One and another Ben Simms Remix. Shadow Boxing is Shinedoe‘s third EP releaese on Intacto this year, and for today’s advent we bring you the bouncy, hypnotic ‘Rubber Band’ from the EP.

ADVENT 2016 #11 – SHANTI CELESTE

Shanti Celeste is a name we haven’t mentioned on the blog here before, but one that has certainly been on our lips – the Chilean born Bristolian based DJ / producer brings a warm, analogue, dusty and soulful feel to her sets and productions. Her first 12” ‘Need Your Lovin’ (Baby)‘ came out on BRSTL in Sep 2013 and spawned a stream of stunning releases since, a number of which have found their first airing on the prestigious ‘Boiler Room Debuts’.

2016 has been a solid year for Shanti Celeste DJ wise, continuing with regular solo shows on NTS radio an incredible US tour in September, and closer to home DJ appearances at Lovebox, Secretsundaze, Dimensions Festival, Panorama, Tresor, ://about blank among many others – you can also catch her playing this weekend at Manchester’s The Warehouse project.

Production wise, a recent solo track ‘Dolphin Chant’ was released as part of the Cragie KnowsSecond Annual Fundraiser for War Child and came out on Dec 5th. She also recently announced the launch of her own imprint ‘Peach Discs’ the debut EP of which will be a delicious 2 tracker from the lady herself – you can sneak a little preview HERE. This year Shanti also turned her hands to remixing and her debut reworking was released in Sep by her local buddies at Bristol Based Idle Hands – the stunning ‘Manhattan’ by L.M.Y.E (Shanti Celeste Remix) serves as #11 of our advent.

Back in 2012 a humble 23 year old girl ‘making music and DJing out of San Francisco’ hit us up on the blog to send us a demo, it was awesome and we knew back then she was one to watch – Four years on Avalon Emerson is quite the force to be reckoned with. From cutting her teeth as a DJ on the San Fran warehouse party scene, she’s now based in Berlin, a Mecca for many, and has since (like many of our other adventees) become a regular DJ at prestigious Panorama Bar, as well as  globetrotting around Europe and North America. Her sound is a ‘timeless narrative that reflects a passion for the sound design of new wave, the futurism of techno, the soul of American house and the exuberance of rave’ both reflective in her DJ sets and productions. She’s elevating in notoriety with every DJ set and every release, Avalons popular DJ tool edit pool, the Cybernedits series, see’s her buddy up with production friends to release series of free downloadable DJ edits, and her own original productions this year have been released Whities, Valance, and most recently, ‘Narcissus in Retrograde’ came out 24th Nov on Spectral Sound.
