Wondering-While-Wandering mixtape 02
Our carrier pigeon has brought in the second mixtape of the Wondering While Wandering series. This time the racket is coming from Naomi //, an up-and-coming London based DJ-ette. She already has quite the references though:
1. Recently she did a mix for the highly acclaimed Are People Real mixtape series.
2. She played at Bugged out! and Blogger’s Delight amongst others.
3. She shared the billings with Boys Noize, Erol, Herve, Crookers, Surkin and almost every British DJ worth taking a photograph of.
Her mixtape for Get Raveslaved is as promising as her CV. There are no real surprises in the tracklisting, but it’s extremely essential. It’s a combo of well-known tracks (Ready for the floor, The best revenge, Shadows) and fresh stuff. Naomi is not delivering a peak time mix here (which isn’t a bad thing at all, au contraire), actually it’s got more of a “Let’s-dance-the-night-away-(after-the-main-act)” feeling to it. And it seems like that’s exactly what she had in mind: the stress is on the melody and the vocals, and as the mix continues, she lets the tracks play slightly longer. Girl Power!
