Admittedly it’s been quite a while since we featured any guest mixes here on the site. Bringing them back with a proverbial bang is none other than Venus Dupree! For the uneducated, Venus is a mainstay DJ on the Belfast scene and co-founder of the female collective GIRL, comprising of herself and Marion Hawkes. The duo are doing very cool things for the N.I scene. Never ones to shy away from advocating positive social change, doing so through both their own parties and extra-curriculars.
If you haven’t already tuned in, catch her show over on Belfast Underground for regular bouts of dance goodness. For those who like to get down; GIRL are now running a monthly party over at The Art Department. Head over and like their Facebook page to stay up to date with their latest movements.
Dance music needs people who champion equality; House music was started by people who wanted to enjoy themselves in a safe and prejudice free space. The likes of Venus are bringing the scene back to those humble roots but still keeping things fresh, one tune at a time.
Enough talk now, the mix and tracklist are below, enjoy. Some lovely varied selections in here, supplemented by some really cool sampling. It might be Autumn but the sun is still shining in Belfast. (Probably not literally)
