Macabre dance

Ashland Mines is a promising DJ from the Miami scene, currently residing in Paris, from where he records his productions for Fade To Mind, the sister label to Night Slugs, sharing the roster with the likes of Kingdom, Nguzunguzu and Fatima Al-Qadiri. You can also follow him via his constant appearances on the Rinse FM program. He collaborated on the Arca mixtape “Entrañas” put out last summer, and produced the album “Anthem” in conjunction with Berlin’s Biennial, which included Kelela and Elysia Crampton,( also present at this year’s Sónar). The music scene is not the only artistic endeavour of the Florida native: two years ago he presented The Hook at New York’s New Museum, which in his own words is “an obnoxious representation of a soundsystem”. He is a DJ that elevates his sets with his own edits and has an undeniable taste for the macabre.
