AIAIAI

In our ongoing efforts of support the music community, we are launching a series of initiatives to empower black and LGBTQI+ artists.. We’ve teamed up with BEAUTIFUL and its founder SHERELLE to open a new studio space, academy & workshop programme, and exhibition series in London.

We have partnered with BEAUTIFUL to help fund a number of free activations  for the BEAUTIFUL and wider black and LGBTIQI+ community. Since last year we have quietly worked with SHERELLE to refine a programme to tackle some of the recurring barriers and obstacles faced by some Black and queer artists at the early stages of their development in becoming professionals in the form of a pop-up HQ for all things BEAUTIFUL.

ANASTASIA

KRISTENSEN

MIX 055

Call-to-action vocals, hi-NRG synth riffs and ten-ton gabber kicks meet rave rinsers, scything electro, booming techno and even the odd rewind. Anastasia Kristensen is a poster-child for techno’s lean out of its associated black hole, and into a spectrum of colours, textures and light. After years of sharpening her reputation as a resident at Culture Box, and in particular Mainstream, one of the city’s few LGBTQ nights, her international tour diary has exploded, taking in small parties and major festivals the world over, making her a magazine cover star who remains driven by connecting communities and elevating fellow music geeks. 

Remixes for artists like Special Request and Daniel Avery laid the path for deals to Warp offshoot Arcola and renowned label Houndstooth, extending the range of what Kristensen brings to the dancefloor, both as a DJ, and a producer putting records in DJ’s hands. By taking that vital first flash of energy and making it relatable, accessible and utterly infectious, Anastasia Kristensen has rapidly clicked with a great deal of people across all walks of dance music – and why she is set to keep doing so for years and years to come.

Anastasia's own words on the mix:
"This is my first mix of the year and it reflects the sounds that I’ve been digging recently and playing at my shows. Tracks full of textures, wonky rhythms and pure dance floor energy."
