Dancehall and club edits galore from a crucial young selector.
With an earth shattering new EP just self-released, London DJ and producer Mina isn’t stopping for a second. Satellite – her second record this year, following Kabala for Lisbon imprint Enchufada – was an extension of her own varied tastes; spanning everything from dancehall and funky to afropop. It featured collaborations with Wanted and Sillati – MCs from Freetown, Sierra Leone, and members of WAYout, a studio and registered charity Mina worked with during a trip to Freetown.
Mina’s DJing style is lively and nimble; her sets bob and weave through a profusion of forms that are geared to the heart of the dancefloor. It’s this quality that runs through the forty-five minutes of her Hyp mix; a heady selection of simmering dancehall, afropop and angular club jams. You’ll hear a number of Mina’s own tracks – including her infectious rework of Brick & Lace’s ‘Love Is Wicked’ – alongside a blazing Gappy Ranks refix from Lit City Trax alumni Drippin, and numbers from Dubbel Dutch, Ynfynyt Scroll and Ramriddlz. Expect to see a lot more of Mina in the year to come.
Satellite is out now. Grab it on Bandcamp.
