In a year that has completely destroyed the music industry and live events, emerging British talent Effy has seemingly been flourishing.
Having held down a residency with Rinse FM since March and releasing multiple singles on her own Effy Music imprint, the young DJ and producer has most certainly made the most out of a difficult year.
Joining us for the latest on our Five Tracks series, she highlights some of the biggest tracks in dance music, including cuts from Bicep, The Prodigy and Maya Jane Coles among others.
Get the full list, including words from Effy below.
Joey Beltram – Energy Flash
Label: R&S Records
This was the first ever acid tune I heard. It’s one of my all-time favourite tunes and I still drop it in sets today.
Martyn – One Eye
I think Martyn is one of the best producers out there. This particular tune is heavy with some sick drums and a sweeping bassline.
Maya Jane Coles – What They Say
When I heard this tune, apart from it being amazing; it was made solely by a woman. This inspired me to become a producer professionally.
Bicep – Opal (Four Tet Remix)
Label: Ninja Tune
Two of my favourite artists coming together to create something beautiful. They’ve both inspired me to try and create emotional music.
The Prodigy – Invaders Must Die
Label: Take Me To The Hospital
The Prodigy need no explanation. This is a proper rave tune, which got me excited about rave culture and inspired me to make more aggressive techno.
