MIXMAG MIX OF THE WEEK
This month, Mixmag turns 30 years old. To celebrate, we've invited four of our favourite artists to take control of our Mix Of The Week series. Handpicked by the Mixmag office, these selections will see in our birthday in fine style. Next up, it's Heidi with an introduction from MixmagTV Channel Editor Callum Reece.
The first time I met Heidi was at one of her legendary Jackathon parties up in Manchester. While Solomun was proving why he was the fastest rising star in house, Heidi summoned me over for a couple shots of tequila before challenging me to a brief dance off. She then stepped up to the decks in the main room (after congratulating me on my victory!) to lay down one of the funkiest, yet slamming, sets I'd seen. Her supreme musical knowledge and her ability to project the love she has for the music back onto a dancefloor makes her one of the most versatile and natural selectors around.
On top of consistently nailing international shows such as Detroit’s Movement festival, Jamie Jones’ Paradise, Marco Carola’s Music On plus Richie Hawtin's Enter, she’s continuously managed to host one of the best shows on Radio 1 while also running her Jackathon events and most recently setting up her own imprint, Jackathon Jams.
Having witnessed her rip up the main room at Sankeys, the industrial Room Two at the Warehouse Project, the main stage at Hideout, Brixton Academy and the notorious Studio 80 in Amsterdam, it was simply crucial we got her onboard for our 30th birthday. She was even nice enough to invite Mixmag to hers! Enjoy...
