Today really is a special day for us – its our first birthday AND we’re able to publish interviews with TWO amazing female talents.
The second interview of today is with the one and only SISTER BLISS! We talk to her about her first single for 10 years (preview below), her plans for the summer and what her new label ‘Junkdog’ is all about…
You’ve just released your first single in 10 years which is also the debut for your brand new label, Junkdog -how does that feel?
Really chuffed to have a great home after all these years touring with Faithless to re-establish my current ‘sound’ and showcase other artists whose music does it for me.
Can you tell us anything about the artists and the kind of sound we can expect from Junkdog?
Guess the sound is house with a real London swagger to it- there’s a bit of fabulous ghetto bass, with the likes of Zebrakatz, but also plenty of emotion with the likes of ‘Ain’t There’, my first release, and my Laura Mvula remix.
I’m also very excited about an artist called ‘I Sad No’ who have just done a great remix for me- they’re like a 21st Century Basement Jaxx having a brawl in a dark Berlin club!
Which other artists are you loving at the moment, and what track are you listening to on repeat?
Loving Maceo Plex- probably the most consistently lovely releases this year, lots of good mixes around from Wayze & Odessey. On repeat- amazing folk artist: Joe Banfi ‘Nomads’ (Communion)
Are you planning any festival appearances this summer?
Kicking off with the 15th anniversary at Ultra Festival, Miami, and I can see Belgium, Hungary, Zagreb, Cyprus and Mexico in the diary at a glance!
And finally, what would Sister Bliss get up to as a Techno Kitten for the day?
I’d be licking from a bowl of jersey cream all day while miaow-ing along to a Jeff Mills DJ set, with any luck!
