This year I left Burningman to fly to NY for 48hrs to do an event. Under normal circumstances that would have been strange and fine. But with the rain and hail delaying the population of the city, my ability to provide soundscape for my peeps was hijinxed.

I took the energy and idea of sets I’d play and crafted Soultronica Vol.6. I enjoy being clever. The tracks hint at Burningman themes and is chalked full of secret catch phrases and symbolism, plus it’s banging. love~

OkayAfrica – “OG soultronica bass selector DJ Eko rounds up the hottest global bass tracks in her latest musical odyssey. Inspired by her Brooklyn party of the same name, ¡Paleta! Vol. 1 is a masterful curation of classic azonto, zouglou, kuduro and kaseko joints across continents and decades. The 50-minute mix seamlessly places Abidjan quartet Magic System and Mali’s Issa Bagayogo alongside reigning Nigerian/Ghanaian heavyweights D’banj, E.L, Omawumi and  R2Bees.”

My friend Khairi is a double agent, by day for Puma and after work, his life is all about RECESS [ie. games for all us music-industry New Yorkers to play like ping pong, bowling, bocci ball and badminton tournaments on Governor’s Island]. I took the opportunity to break from genre themes in favor of a diversion into a heart-opener midtempo mix of songs that I just want to listen to all the time. This makes me happy.

A favorite, fun BKNY designer (who dresses Nicki Minaj, Patra, Rye Rye & Nina Sky) asked me to make a mix for her line. I was stoked on the task of taking inventory of all of the types of clients she styles for and repping all of those cultural elements in one banging summertime mix. NSFW & not for the faint-of-heart!
