Renegade Riddims: Electra
Tasha West aka Electra has been DJing on the Cardiff underground circuit since 2019. She’s played a variety of sets spanning a wide spectrum of bpm’s, from UK garage and breaks through to Hardcore, Jungle, Footwork and Drum & Bass. She takes alot of her inspiration from the likes of Sherelle, Tim Reaper, Coco Bryce, Mantra and Sully as well as the sounds of Metalheadz and Spearhead Records.
Electra is a resident DJ for Cardiff-based collective Ladies of Rage (LOR), who strive for gender-balanced line ups in the underground music scene. She has played regularly in Cardiff including supporting Randall, Storm, Digital and Djinn at the LOR x Function:al event, as well as various other club nights throughout Cardiff and South West England. As well as being a club DJ, she has made regular appearances on Life.FM for LOR‘s monthly residency, and hosts her own monthly radio show on Dub Frequency, showcasing her favourite new and classic releases at 160bpm and beyond.
We’re really excited to bring you a brand new Renegade Riddims mix from Electra. Here’s a few words about the mix from her:
I hope you enjoy the mix, I really enjoyed putting it together! It turned into a bit of a journey mix through some choppy 160, jungle and the deeper darker side of Drum & Bass back to some high energy techy bits. Loads of Amen breaks and jungley rollers!
