Dummy Mix 541 // Elkka

Inspired by "a few life-changing raves", femme culture's Elkka delivers a hefty mix that demonstrates her selecting prowess

Co-head of femme culture (the label/collective we selected as our best of 2018), Elkka is at the forefront of championing inclusivity for women in music. Responsible for some free-wheeling, forward-thinking music (check her recent ‘Full Circle‘ EP) Elkka started crafting music at the age of eight on a toy keyboard, while her multitude of talents now include singing, label running, party starting, and basically just being a boss.

Add to that the fact that she’s also a gifted selector, and she’s currently enjoying a healthy run of worldwide bookings – while her own events as femme culture often promote important causes, such as supporting the fight for abortion rights in Northern Ireland. As we all know, partying for a good cause feels even sweeter.

“This is probably a somewhat heavier mix than my usual,” Elkka says, “but I have been recently really inspired by a few life-changing raves, particularly on my recent trip to Brazil where I became enveloped in the most incredible house, techno and vogue party in a warehouse in São Paulo. There are also a few classics thrown in there which still have a huge impact on me and I get a kick out of playing them out, plus a few forthcoming tracks I am working on!”
