Based out of London, DJ and musical director, Lou Hayter, rose to prominence as part of the Mercury nominated electro-pop group, New Young Pony Club. Today she’s on the books of brands like Chanel, and has been dropping singles like honey across the past few years.

Words on the mix from Lou herself:

'In lockdown I went back to some of the house music that’s influenced me most in my life like the Moodymann album ‘A Silent Introduction’ which sounds so good at the moment. This is a mix of that soulful New York/ Detroit house sound that I love like Pal Joey and Dream 2 Science and those producers who are still making incredible records right now like Theo Parrish, it feels like a sound of then and now at the same time which I love.'

We created the series to promote and compensate musicians with new weekly mix releases on Soundcloud and Mixcloud - all curated by Benji B.

In an increasingly uncertain business of being a musician DJ or performing artist we wanted to find a way to contribute to supporting the music and nightlife scene.

The effort intends to equip artists to advance their creative and performance opportunities on a global stage, as nightclubs and music venues have largely faced ongoing closures and other restrictions internationally as the COVID-19 pandemic persists.
