Originating from the superbly named town of Champaign, Illinois ( 2 hours south of Chicago ), Jessica Rose Phillippe has developed into an integral component of one of House Music’s most popular labels: Dirtybird. Signing to the San Franciscan label in 2008, Phillippe quickly demonstrated a propensity to get backsides moving, with meaty cuts like ‘Rumble, Rumble’ and ‘Droppin Bomz On Yer Momz’ sounding like suitable agents for the label’s party starting mission statement. Whilst 2013 see’s her continuing to spread the Dirtybird love around the world, she also has a less predictable side to her musical tastes, which she was keen to express on Hyp 145. Her discography thus far probably wouldn’t lead you to expect a mix laden with gems from Autechre, Deerhunter and James Blake, but Phillippe masterfully defies expectations here, delivering a listening experience that is as soothing and meditative as it is developing and engrossing.
