Juno Plus Podcast 14: DJ Skirt

Birmingham-based producer DJ Skirt serves up an expertly mixed selection of brooding, industrial techno on her Juno Plus podcast.

The producer, originally from Texas, this week released her second missive on Frozen Border sub-label Horizontal Ground, replete with a wonderfully swampy remix from German beat scientist T++ (working as 20 16 12 21 19 16 12 21 19 ).

Her debut release for the label, “In The Meadow Under The Stars”, struck a chord here at Juno Plus towers. The title track seemed unsure whether it was delicate or strong, brittle or robust, with droning atmospherics and ethereal vocal sweeps giving the track a menacing sheen. “Six Hours”, meanwhile, sounded like the soundtrack to one of those Japanese horror movies you watched through veiled fingers. Skirt’s new release – which hit the shelves this weekhas an equally murky things-that-go-bump-in-the-night vibe; a stunning reminder of how emotive, moving and frankly terrifying techno can be.

Her vinyl-only mix for Juno Plus weaves between the work of her contemporaries, with nods to fellow Midlands techno dons Surgeon and Regis alongside a cut from Juno Plus podcast alumni Charlton and material from on-it imprints including M_Rec, Perc Trax and Idle Hands.
