DEBONAIR

DEBONAIR is a DJ, radio host and one of London's most open-eared selectors who draws upon her formidable knowledge of underground music past and present to redefine dancefloors across the world via her exhilarating, shape-shifting DJ sets.

DEBONAIR'S biweekly residency for NTS (she was the station's programme director in its formative days) shows the full breadth of her voracious, genre-scrambling musical appetite and regularly features acclaimed guests ranging from Holly Herndon to DJ Bone to Yaeji. Her club sets extend this philosophy, lacing strands of avant-garde electronics, rave, EBM, no-wave, proto-techno, tripped-out house, post-punk and more into innovative yet cohesive bodies of sound, which crescendo into pure vitalizing energy during her renowned peak-time sets.

Over the past few years she has made a name for herself as a charismatic yet uncompromising party catalyst with a succession of celebrated live appearances at key festivals and clubs such as Unsound (where she closed this year's edition), Dekmantel Selectors, DC-10, De School and Panorama Bar, as well as exploratory, deeper sessions in art galleries including Tate Modern's Turbine Hall.

'One of London’s best DJs with a temperature-raising selection of vintage techno, party-starting house and gritty industrial oddities. DEBONAIR’s hourly Thursday slot is still one of the station’s must-listen shows. [Her] FACT mix is a sweaty, temperature-raising selection of vintage heaters in the vein of her raucous peak-time sets' — FACT

'Adventurous and transportive... her [Blowing Up The Workshop] mix covers plenty of ground: Fleetwood Mac, Cocteau Twins, Stereolab, Gangsta Boo, psych rock, Gregorian chants overlaid with computer vocalizations. The logic behind it all isn't immediately decipherable... But as freeform listening goes, DEBONAIR's set... perfectly encapsulates what she describes as the trifecta of “space, intrigue, and tenderness.” — Pitchfork
