Let's Talk: Juliet Fox

Australian artist Juliet Fox has been one of the fastest growing producers in techno over the past few years, releasing her tracks on genre-leading outputs such as Drumcode, Kraftek and Noir.

Now returning to Reiner Zonneveld’s Filth On Acid imprint, Fox brings her new Hologram EP. A robust and dark-natured selection that provides three original productions.

We had a brief chat with the now Berlin-based talent ahead of the release, chatting about everything from the inspiration behind the tracks and what labels she might be releasing on soon, to her past collaborations and how her home country differs to Berlin’s club scene. Get the full discussion below.

You’re about to return to Filth On Acid for your new three track Hologram EP, what is the inspiration behind this one?

I actually wrote My Imagination and Through The Pain around the same time, I was in Ibiza over the summer time and on an all-nighter studio session. I had a lot of things I needed to clear in my head and emotions I felt at the time, which is why they are a bit darker and slightly twisted lol.

Then Dreaming Inception came a fair bit after these, I never plan what I make, I just let myself write and express how I am feeling at the time.

Drumcode, Octopus, Toolroom, Upon Acess and Kraftek are also a few of the labels we’ve seen you release with, can you talk about any labels you might be releasing on soon?

My next release will be on Drumcode at the end of April, which will be announced very soon.

And you’ve collaborated with a lot of techno’s elite, including Spektre and Arjun Vagale, do you have a dream collaboration?

Not as such, I work with artists that I have personally met or connected with via songs or online. I find this is what works best, and I love the way it flows, and at anytime I feel like I want to collab with someone I usually just ask and hope they are keen also.

You were born in Australia but of course now live in Berlin, how would you compare the two when it comes to the club scene?

There is a huge difference! The main reason why I left Australia to begin with, to really explore this other side. There is a sense of freedom in Berlin not just with music, fashion, sex, but everything, it allows you to really delve deep. But on that Australia has some very cool parties and festivals going on now, so I really love coming back to tour especially in the last two years.

And can you tell us your favourite club to play? And why?

I would have to say Sisyphos & Watergate in Berlin, and most recently the De Marktkantine in Amsterdam. They all set the mood perfectly, the sound system and the energy from the people there is just great, and everyone is in it for the long run!

What’s the craziest story you can tell us from being on the road as a DJ?

There are too many to tell (and a lot I shouldn’t put on paper haha), from country to country it varies so much, and is always an experience. Maybe I’ll write a book on it all one day!

Do you have any pre-show rituals or superstitions?

A nap or a shot of tequila, but that’s about it haha, I go with the flow and how I’m feeling at the time, as it varies most gigs.

Thanks a lot for taking some time out to chat to us, before we go, what is your favourite track of 2020 so far?

I would have to say one of my own which is released today on Filth On Acid – Through The Pain.

Juliet’s Hologram EP is out today on Filth On Acid.
