DJ Crane x OAD

DJ Crane’s One A Day Mix by One A Day

With her voluminous curly hair and unwavering London style, DJ Crane was our favourite before we were even allowed to have them. As one half of Badwives, the baddest female DJ duo on the planet, Crane has spun gold at every party worth attending, including Splendour In The Grass, Big Day Out and our personal favourite, Playground Weekender. In case her night gig wasn’t cool enough, by day Crane is a Marketing Manager for EMI, looking after a roster of stellar acts including Tinie Tempah, Little Dragon, the mighty Swedish House Mafia, Apparat, Royksopp and our very dear friend Alison Wonderland. Starting to branch out on her own, this is DJ Crane’s exclusive (and may we say, pretty incredible) mix for One A Day.

Here’s some extra detail from Sarah on her song choices for this mix:

“Hmmm, somewhat a mixed bag of genre and era here. There’s a bit of new, a bit of old, touching from glitchy to hip hop to rave to UK garage and reggae. Generally, it’s just stuff that I love. I started this mix the day after I played a four hour set of the cheesiest music going (don’t judge me) at a venue which shall remain nameless. So the song choice for the mixtape was a physical reaction against cheese and gives a far better idea of the stuff I listen to at home.

I’m generally a fan of evil and filthy bass lines which definitely reflects in the mix – ‘Evil Twin’ by Modeselektor is of those tracks that grabs you by the balls then smacks you in the face with them. Modeslektor are the dons, so it was critical for them to represent here.

I know I said there was no cheese but I did include the ‘Sincere’ by MJ Cole. It may be unknown to some but those from the UK circa maybe 10 years ago will remember! There’s definitely a resurgence of garage – which I’m so down with. Bring it, on I say.”
