Dakini9, Jenifa Mayanja, Jay Mond, Lilith
THE WARRIORS GATHER
12" Vinyl US
Jenifa Mayanja and Dakini9 (aka Lola) are back with the third installment on their label Sound Warrior, this time with two new artists beginning to make a name for themselves in the underground electronic music scene.
Jay Mond is a Spanish transplant to Berlin, Germany. Her eclectic, mature sound belies her youth, as she combines tough drum programming with jagged synths on ‘Green Adventures.’ Jenifa Mayanja turns in a classic example of her sound on ‘Wide Awake,’ complete with Jenifa vocal samples, soulful keys, and a rolling arrangement culminating in a deep dance floor experience. Lilith, from Los Angeles, CA opens the B side with ‘Shadow Boxing,’ a tracky affair with swooping risers, punchy kicks, and moody chords. Dakini9 closes the EP with ‘NRG & Power,’ a sample-driven night light deep house jam. Sound Warrior Recordings is dedicated to promoting and releasing music by female electronic music producers.
