EACH + Alexis + Quite Frankly = party 

A L.A.D's (ladies & decks) production by Cobalt 

Toronto's Peach is most frequently found on the internet radio waves, and in various raves. Now based in London, where she hosts her monthly NTS Radio show, you can find her on line-ups with artists such as Pearson Sound, Karen Gwyer and Andres, or bouncing around the dancefloor. 

Her sets are creative, coherently traversing several genres. She deftly constructs elevating narratives with energy, dynamism and passion. This vibrancy is captured on her debut track, "Silky", a fast-paced, melodic cut which was released on Intergraded - a new imprint for emerging artists launched by Midland. 

At different points in her life, Alexis Andrews has lived in Dubai, Amsterdam, Houston and London. If this combination suggests to you a DJ with an open mind, then you’d be right. 

After making her start as a resident at Peckham’s Balamii Radio, Alexis found herself at the centre of a network of international influences whose orbit equipped her with the requisite skills for club fluency. Expect each set to manifest as an onslaught of groove-laced techno, electro, EBM and house, as resistant to trend as criticism.

The same can be said of her production; examples are scarce, but each demonstrates a percussion-forward approach to techno that would find her in good stead amongst the rosters of Die Orakel, Cong Burn, Tobago Tracks and other taste-making outlets.

Clearly, the takeoff is Alexis’ career is imminent; a Noods resident fresh from appearances alongside Objekt, Batu, Ryan Elliot, Paramida and many more, she’s a breath of fresh air in an environment where stagnancy means staleness.

Block Party resident Quite Frankly has been fueling the local dance music scene for some time now - catch her opening set early on
