Leading the charge in Aotearoa New Zealand’s jungle and bass music is Paige Julia.  She properly emerged on an international scale following the infamous 1985 x Keep Hush Live set in Christchurch. Occurring during the pandemic, the whole world was tuned in to watch this mysterious breakbeat-head wreak havoc on a spoiled few. Under the pressure of playing directly after Alix Perez, it was a perfect DJ set that kept true to the 1985 sound, but with her own special twist that she’d go on to become renowned for.  But as the story always goes, she didn’t land this position overnight.

Growing up in Porto, inspired by Call Of Duty montages and internet lore – Molecular AKA Rafael Pinto’s introduction to drum & bass was not filled with sneaking into raves, or digging through a friends-older-sibling’s tape pack collection.  It was a steady diet of Noisia, Spor, DJ Die and other legends of that 2010s era, as well as countless hours of YouTube and forums to learn the art of music production – all through the headphones and screens. The culmination of these inspirations and graft shaped Raf’s future, building that trademark funk into his productions today.  On ..read more

When Ezra Collective stepped up to the podium to collect the Mercury Prize last September, drummer Femi Koleoso was emphatic that this wasn’t just a win for the band, or even for jazz, but for something much bigger. “Ezra Collective represents something very special, because we met at a youth club,” he told the room. “This moment that we’re celebrating right here is testimony to good special people putting time and effort into young people to play music.” If the awards seasons from the past couple of years are anything to go by, Ezra Collective are far from the only artists to travel this rout ..read more
