Hear an hour of music that inspired the Kentucky producer's 2016 EP 'What a Joy.'
While today's East Coast storm ended up being a bit anti-climatic, numerous North American cities woke up to snow-covered driveways and trickier-than-usual commutes this morning. Luckily for those still digging out their walkways, Kentucky producer Ellie Herring has delivered a soundtrack for shoveling or any other physical activities.
Kicking off with London house producer Night Owl's sublime remix of Kraftwerk's "Home Computer," the hour-long mix will get your blood flowing in no time, and features songs by electronic veterans (Derrick Carter's "Where U At," Miss Kittin's "Girlz") and more recent fare by the likes of Cozzy D, DJ Hauz, and Riva Starr. She also includes the airy, pulsating "Wheels On," a highlight from her shape-shifting 2016 EP, What a Joy.
"I've been incorporating a lot of traditional house and techno elements into the tracks I'm producing lately and this mix is definitely a by-product of that process," the producer tells THUMP over email. "These tracks are by artists that are super recent and longtime inspirations of mine."
