Whether she’s behind the decks or curating a party, Jacq Jill takes care of business. Jacq Jill (aka Lauren Wright) had a busy 2016 with launch of her JUICE project, a “… movement dedicated to providing a platform for booking and highlighting female-identified, genderqueer artists in electronic music.” Ahead of the Our DC event Jacq Jill is playing at U Street Music Hall tomorrow, January 21, she released “FRUIT PUNCH 001 : 4 Business Women” today to kick off FRUIT PUNCH, a new mix series, .
Over the course of “FRUIT PUNCH 001 : 4 Business Women,” Jacq Jill proves her mix-meister status numerous times. Named “4 Business Women” for the Romy and Michele’s High School Reunionsample that bookends the mix, Jacq Jill deftly loops the sample in the introduction and transitions to gritty electronic and bass tracks that dominate 50 minutes of listening joy. Jacq Jill even manages to work in excerpts from Chinaka Hodge’s “What will you yell your daughters about 2016?”
Give “FRUIT PUNCH 001 : 4 Business Women” a listen and be sure to catch Jacq Jill at U Street Music Hall tomorrow.
