Fresh Friday Mix: Sassy J

Happy Friday y’alls. Today we’re featuring Swiss dancefloor operator: Sassy J. Here’s a little bit about Sassy from Resident Advisor:

“There’s no shortage of exceptional resident DJs plying their trade in small cities around the world. Sassy J is one of those DJs. She’s had plenty of esteemed guests at her Patchwork night in Bern, Switzerland—Moodymann, MF Doom, Theo Parrish, Sadar Bahar and Floating Points among them—but it’s her own wide-ranging approach to playing records that has shaped the party. There’s a sense of handcrafted care attached to anything she puts her name to. As well as DJing and promoting, she designs a colourful range of clothes, flyers and record sleeves.”

“Growing up in Bern, Sassy J didn’t have to look far for musical inspiration—her mother had her own radio show and her father was a jazz musician. As a teenager she began travelling from Switzerland to London to attend Co-Op nights. These parties, initially held at Velvet Rooms and later at Plastic People, were a vital incubator for London’s broken-beat scene. Co-Op’s sense of freedom and musicality informed Sassy J’s own approach to DJing, one that she has fine-tuned at Patchwork. These talents are increasingly in demand outside her native country—she now holds down a steady international touring schedule and in 2014 she was lined up to record a cassette mix for Will Bankhead’s label, The Trilogy Tapes. Her style is on full display throughout RA 483, an hour-long selection that builds from smooth house to full-throttle disco.”
