We caught up with Alisha for 5 minutes…
What is your best gig to date?
Definitely 338 Terrace haha!
We’re loving your track ‘Trip’ is there a story behind this production?
Thank you! Honestly no story at all. I sat on the track for around 4/5 months before actually sending it to Green Velvet, just found the catchy vocal hook and everything else just worked around it nicely.
Can we expect some more releases on Relief Records?
Haha! You’ll have to wait and see…
Do you have any more productions in the pipeline that you can tell us about?
Yes, I’ve got a 3 track EP coming out on Hippies in just over a week. Including 2 original tracks I wrote around a year ago now and a wicked remix from Solid Grooves Raw artist George Marshman.
Who’s throwing the best parties at the moment?
Habiat – Not biased at all. Haha the vibe we have is incredible and really based around the residents! People come to our parties for the music not for the image.
What gigs have you got coming up for the rest of the year?
Loads of exciting ones coming up like Forbidden Forrest, Nic Fancuilli’s Birthday event and lots coming up including Lincoln, Manchester, Liverpool and more!
What is your dream festival to play at?
Tough one that! Definitely think Parklife in one of the big arena’s! Seen so much from it and the atmosphere looks incredible!
Tell us about your residency at Habitat…
