Taking on the mix is a representation of how quickly her career has taken off. She first contributed to Bonobo’s mix three years ago and now she has one of her own.
“The idea of the mix is very acid house. I love the idea of old skool rave culture, the ethos around peace and love as well as the aesthetic that comes with it, so that’s what I wanted to bring with the mix,” explains TSHA. “Lots of old skool vibes, which is the reason dance music exists – to break down barriers and bring people together.”
There is plenty of house, techno, UKG, 90’s dance more in this that looks to get back to the “core” of dance music.
“I was trying to take it back to core dance music, which is about escapism and fun and connecting with people,” says TSHA.
One of TSHA’s aims with the mix is to try to shine light on some new and upcoming artists.
“I really wanted to introduce people to artists they’d never heard of before and make it a platform, just like Bonobo did for me. He made people aware of me. A lot of the artists featured are ones who’ve randomly sent me music and they’ve always had an amazing reception, but some of them no one really knows about yet.”
There are 25 tracks in total, including a new one from TSHA titled “BOYZ.”
