This Friday expect major heat as J.Aria & Ni-ku are back for the fourth instalment of mega-rowdy rave MegaLast! As per the experimental, abrasive and uncompromising party hasn’t disappointed with the line-up featuring the iconic Sylvere, Spinee, Minou + Shivum Sharma!
Taking the helm in our lazerhole for the first time is Spinee! A PC Music affiliate and NTS radio monthly host the London based DJ and producer has been making waves with her hyper pop bangers and nu metal jack-house trax!
We caught up with Spinee to chat about working with the infamous PC Music collective, her favourite LGBTQ+ musicians and what we can expect from her premier set at Dalston Superstore!
We’re pumped to hear you at Superstore for MegaLast this month! For readers who’re meeting you for the first time, could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Me too! I’ve been so many times but never played here I’m excited that it’s with MegaLast looks like a really fun party AND the line up is smashing! I’m a DJ and producer based in London, I host a monthly show on NTS Radio and play hardcore club music.
We first heard of you from your PC Music releases; how did you meet everyone from the collective? And what was it like working with them?
I met everyone through A. G. Cook, they’re a super talented group of people I’d never been around people who were very open to a lot of (good) weirdness.
Do you have any plans in the future for more collaborations?
I really enjoy having guest mixes on my NTS show so I’m trying to do a lot more of them this year. My show next week features a mix Peggy Viennetta – a truly seductive and hyperactive entity!
More recently you’ve been holding down one of our absolute favourite NTS Radio shows; your mixes are wormholes of hyper pop bangers, nu metal jack-house trax with occasional hardstyle curveballs thrown in. Has planning an hour of music every month changed how you think about DJing?
Thank you! And definitely, it makes me way less lazy having a schedule to stick to. I’ve always been obsessed with finding new music but shaping it into a fun hour to be played out makes me use my time wisely. For me djing for radio is quite different from playing live too, I feel like I can be more goofy IRL whereas radio is all recorded and I want it to be more of a sleek representation of what I do.
You’ve been DJing around the scene a lot more in the last year…..are you focusing on DJing now, or can we expect some more Spinee releases in the future?!
I am focusing primarily on djing but I’m in the process of learning Ableton as I used Logic for all of my old tracks and I ended up feeling a bit restricted by it. Once I’ve totally mastered Ableton I have tonnes of ideas for new tracks, evolved and next level from my older stuff but still with the Spinee Spirit.
What other LGBTQ+ musicians are you loving at the moment?
What has been your favourite queer venue// clubnight to play at and//or go to?
Creamcake forever!!! Tremors throws great parties in London. Fave venue to play at has to be Südblock I’ve had so many great times there
If you had unlimited budget and could book anyone, what would your perfect clubnight look like?
This is such a good question!!! I would book Nightwave, Eclair Fifi, UNIIQU3 , Honey Bunny, VTSS , Sherelle, GFOTY , DJ Paypal, all of Casual Gabberz and all of Off Me Nut records and force everyone to do one long b2b.
What do you have planned for the rest of 2019?
I’ve got a few things coming up in London and Paris, loads more NTS shows and then I’m open to playing wherever whenever !
Finally, in three words what can we expect from your first set at Dalston Superstore?!
Euphoria, Eurodance and ENERGY!
