May (jamesjamesjames, Prospa & Sarra Wild) –
Welcome to our roundup of mixes you need to hear this month, where we spotlight some of the best that electronic music has to offer in the form of forward-thinking track selections, pure club annihilation and new, unreleased cuts from our favourite artists.
If you’re keen to learn the ins and outs of DJing, we’d highly recommend checking out our Music Production & DJ Performance degree, which is available in London and Online. On completion of this course, you’ll be prepared to enter the music industry with a dynamic and professional production portfolio.
Mixmag | In Session: jamesjamesjames
Beverly Hills-born jamesjamesjames stepped up for this edition of Mixmag’s In Session mix series and crammed it full of four-to-the-floor anthems, cute techno flips and plenty of their own edits. Speaking about the hour-long mix, the artist told Mixmag that it’s “basically a playlist of what I’ve been listening to this month. A glimpse into my 5 remaining brain cells”.
Crack Magazine | Crack Mix 449: Prospa
“This is us flowing at our best. We wanted to deliver something super high-energy and with good contrast between the darker sounds and brighter endings,” Prospa explained about their mix for Crack Magazine. Packed with weighty dancefloor cuts, the Leeds-born duo’s mix comes in at one hour and 45 minutes and features a blend of breaks, 90s house and rave. We recently teamed up with Prospa at IMS Ibiza for an exclusive track breakdown of their epic song, ‘Ecstasy’. Keep an eye out for that coming soon to our YouTube channel.
Fact Magazine | Fact Mix 857: Sarra Wild
Sound designer, DJ and producer, Sarra Wild, has been featured at a range of festivals, including the V&A Dundee and Flourish by artist Camara Taylor, presented at Glasgow International and The Gallow Gate. Their mix for Fact Magazine sees the artist journey through a cocktail of jungle, techno, R&B and more. Tune in now.
