A rhythmic masterclass from the far-reaching London DJ.
Recently embarking on a trip to Durban to trace the story of South Africa’s gqom movement for the BBC, London DJ and broadcaster Emily Dust has always made it her mission to connect the dots between the forward-thinking club sounds across the globe.
A regular fixture on the UK radio circuit, Emily’s underground roots have led her to become fixated with the fierce rhythms of dancehall, baile funk, kuduro and gqom. She champions emerging sounds that come deep via the world’s clubs, taxis and bedrooms, and is already well on the way to spotlighting another blossoming scene with her current project on the underground electronic music of Senegal.
Welcoming her to our mix series, Emily packs weight from all corners, flying through the cutthroat beats of artists like Slikback, Siete Catorce, and BadSista. Tuck in below.
