Renegade Riddims: Djinn & Mantra
Today on our Renegade Riddims mix series we’re really happy to bring you the sounds of Djinn and Mantra. These two talented females play b2b frequently and compliment each others styles perfectly. Their attention to detail is flawless and they bounce off each other really well. Making for a great combo.
Manchester DJ & Producer Djinn continues to rise as an undeniable force in drum & bass. Remaining true to the original, sub-heavy 170 sound, pushing a current- day heavyweight precision of deep rolling beats and dark, menacing break work.
Djinn has dropped her distinctive selection at countless events across the UK & played internationally for over 10 years. She’s toured North America, Australia, the Middle East and regularly represents across Europe.
Having contributed tracks to a number of well-received multi-artist releases, 2017 saw Djinn make her true entry in production with debut ‘Dark Reference’ EP released on Foundation X.
A versatile, meticulous DJ, Djinn’s uncompromising style captures the true essence of authentic underground jungle & dnb.
Representing real drum and bass at it’s finest, Mantra’s deep and emotive sound in the mix comes from an intense passion for the music. Her sets push the boundaries of drum and bass while still staying true to its core.
Far more than just a DJ and producer, Mantra’s work developing, curating, and promoting the Rupture brand. The label and jungle’s premier event, speak to how deeply the drum and bass culture influences her life. Community work has played a vital role in her life and last December she started the initiative EQ50. Their goal is to mentor and support women within the heavily male-dominated drum and bass genre.
Rupture’s continued growth and success, built with her partner Double O, are a testament to Mantra’s dedication to the junglist movement. Born from a desire to take club nights back to basics. Rupture has grown over the past 12 years to form what is now recognized as London’s best underground D&B night.
