ILLEXXANDRA – The Armory Podcast 061

Armory Podcast

 

This week in The Armory we welcome ILLEXXANDRA of the Vitamin B crew in Brooklyn to the 1s and 2s. For her Armory mix, ILLEXXANDRA brings together the world of classic ghetto breaks with the homegrown NYC-area sounds of Jersey club tracks and ballroom vogue, New Orleans bounce, and UK underground club music. Press play. Get down.

Brooklyn-based DJ/producer ILLEXXANDRA brings a consistently fun party vibe, drawing from the worlds of funk, UK future sound, global bass, electro swing, and classic club culture. Her sets draw you in with innocent joy, smack you around with raw ferocity, and then set you down gently with deep musical knowledge. She’ll kill it with an hour of bangers, or take you on a five-hour journey into sound.

ILLEXXANDRA has played all over the world, from the East Coast’s best underground parties (Thunder Gumbo, House of Yes, Gemini & Scorpio, BangOn, Winkel & Balktick, Bangarang, No Man’s Land, the JunXion), to major international venues (including The Room in Tokyo; Sound Channel and Union in Osaka; the Button Factory in Dublin; Club Love, the McKittrick Hotel, Pacha, and APT in NYC; the Rock & Roll Hotel and Tropicalia in DC; the Parish in Austin; 1015 Folsom, DNA Lounge, the Elbo Room, and Public Works in San Francisco; King King, The Echo, and El Cid in LA; the Freakeasy in Chicago; Club Popozuda afterparty for Notting Hill Carnival in London among many others), and festivals (SXSW, Gathering of the Vibes, Long Beach Funk Festival, and the ISA World Surfing Games in Costa Rica).

She has released tracks and remixes for Rot10 Muzik, Peligrosa, Boogie Boutique, Cast-A-Blast Records/Mishkin, MC Zulu, Feral aka MC Kinky, Jon Kwest, Kuenta i Tambu, Gato Preto, DJ Tack & DJ Tamalero, and Jaymay, and numerous cult-classic bootlegs. Her tracks were named best track of 2011 by TropicalBass.com, one of 2011′s Most Underrated Music by Marcus Dowling, and featured on BBC Radio 1. She has released mixtapes with Afropop Worldwide, Brooklyn Radio, Space Cowboys RIPEcast, the Armory Podcast, Brousse FM, and RVA Magazine.

She has played all over the Burning Man festival, including the coliseum at Root Society, Funky Town, Dustfish, Basshenge, PEX, Kostume Kult, Disorient, Nexus, Burners Without Borders, BMIR, Dirty Beetles/Black 22s, Black Rock Boutique, Tsunami Bass Experience, Pedal Bump, and Brulee, as well as the arts cars the Janky Barge, Icarus, the Bump Bed, A Cavallo, the Dodo, and the Nautilus. She has played prominent sets at regional Burning Man-related events Transformus, PEX Summer Festival, Playa del Fuego, Frostburn, Freeform Festival, Decompression in NYC and Chicago, and Figment NYC and DC.

ILLEXXANDRA is a resident DJ at Vitamin B, New York’s longest running monthly breakbeat party, and at Tropic of Bass in Washington, DC. She is also a resident of the infamous and long-running Rubulad party, a core DJ of the Mischief DC crew, and member of the Plug 4 camp at Burning Man.
