Kim Ann Foxman: Tracks That Remind Me Of London
Thursday 26 Jan
Kim Ann Foxman has gotten 2017 off to a flyer. The Hawaiian born DJ and producer resides in New York these days newly becoming a resident in one of the cities hottest spots, The Good Rooms. Kim’s raised the heat on her two year old label, Firehouse Recordings, with the new ‘Energy’ EP released this month a fitting throwback to her affectionate memories of the late 80s/90’s rave scene.
While the New York-based producer may be taking her homeland by storm, she hasn’t quite forgotten about her cherished partying days in London just yet. Here Kim’s picked out some golden oldies reminding her of the good old days in the capital, with a few thoughts about the memories and emotions each track brings.
LFO – Leeds Warehouse Mix
“That bassline makes it one of my rave tunes of all times. It’s got the perfect ingredients, so simple and so effective. It really is the ultimate warehouse jam.”
A Guy Called Gerald – Voodoo Ray
“This one never gets old and will remain a staple in everyone’s dance music collection. The TB-303 is used in a very loving way.”
Xpansions – Move Your Body Higher (elevation)
“This hit anthem has such a strong effect on people. It makes people explode with happiness and throw their hands in the air.”
Coco Steel & Love Bomb – Feel it
“This record is one of my favourite house records of all time. I love that bassline, and the samples are magic. It’s a jam that makes the dance floor feel sexy.”
In less than a month’s time, British star Maya Jane Cole will be inviting Foxman to Printworks London as one of the leading names of the Maya Jane Coles & Friends night. The multi level 5,000 capacity venue will also be pushing through some serious talents such as UK DJ’s Wax Wings and Alinka. Tickets are still available via Printworks.
