Fact mix 766: Elkka

An ode to raving from the femme culture
founder.

Elkka’s productions hit that
sweet spot between vintage New York house and contemporary UK club
music, weaving kaleidoscopic melodies and bold basslines with
bumping rhythms. It’s a classic yet contemporary sound with its
roots in rave music and queer parties.

‘[It] symbolises what I hope the dance floor to be” Elkka
said last year
of her anthemic track ‘Every Body Is Welcome’. ‘A music
utopia or haven, somewhere for everyone to feel safe to express
themselves, to find themselves, to be whoever they want to be and
feel part of a community of acceptance and tolerance.”

In 2016, in response to a lack of platforms dedicated to female
and non-binary DJs and producers, Elkka founded a label and
collective to provide support for emerging artists. Since then,
femme culture (which is run alongside Saint Ludo) has become a
vital platform, releasing music from Elkka herself, Ariel Zetina,
BADSISTA and more.

Her latest release, a
two-track EP on London’s Local Action label, features an ode to
the dancefloor in the era of social distancing. ‘I. Miss.
Raving.’ is a bittersweet banger that looks forward to the time
when we can all get back into the club.

Elkka’s Fact mix is a perfect summer set to imagine yourself
raving to, featuring tracks from Anthony Shakir, India Jordan,
Lindstrøm, Omar S, Floating Points and herself. Find Elkka’s

femme culture.
