394 – Black Girl / White Girl
We’re all for equal opportunities here at Data Transmission, and who better to represent that than one of the hottest up-and-coming electronic duos around. Hailing from Amsterdam and Tel Aviv, BLACK GIRL/WHITE GIRL are, as the name suggests, two young women, Tahnee and Karin, on a mission to spread their passion for all things dance. Incorporating elements of Chicago house, garage, UK bass and even R&B, the pair have been gaining a reputation for themselves across Europe for their pioneering blends.
With a steady flow of releases coming from their base in Tel Aviv, Israel, BLACK GIRL/WHITE GIRL are set to take the electronic world by storm in 2014 starting with this exclusive mix for DT!
Sum up this podcast in 10 words… You better put on your shoes and start to dance.What’s your personal favourite track on it? That’s gotta be Dusky’s “Love Taking Over”. Such a well-rounded, dance floor smasher. Also, we have a couple of forthcoming hidden gems in this mix, courtesy of our good Mexican homies at Furies Records. They are destined for hella big things.What’s the special ingredient in this mix? Luv. What’s the best gig you’ve played recently? Definitely Number House, a Boiler Room style party that we were asked to play at in Ceske Budejovice, this cute city in the Czech Republic. It’s organized by these kids who are great DJs and producers themselves, which is so cool. We dig that. And there was a totally awesome vibe there too, so it was sweet to be a part of that. What have you got coming up? A lot of releases, both original work and remixes. We just had this moody remix of Pablo Nouvelle’s “Poison” that premiered on THUMP, and our first real (signed to a pretty rad label we love) release is scheduled for September – which we are very excited about, obviously. We’re also super thrilled about an upcoming collaboration with a good friend of ours from Prague – who also happens to be an amazing artist, vocalist and live performer – his name is HOLY. Needless to say, anybody who wants to stay in the loop concerning all these awesome things need to keep an eye on our Facebook page. And finally, do you have a special message for our readers? Yes! Chase your dreams, yo, or they will end up chasing YOU. And of course, enjoy the mix, and prepare to dance the night (or day) away.Track list: Jamie xx – All Under One Roof Raving [Young Turks] Rhythm Operator – No More Games (Original Mix) [Vicario Musique Recordings] Riton – Inside My Head (Fake Blood Remix) [feat.
