Nina Las Vegas’ curated events moniker NLV Presents returns in the form of a mix series that will highlight some of the best underground DJ’s Australia has to offer.
The mix series will be available to stream on Apple Music, and will see a different DJ taking the reigns monthly on the last week of every month.
Yuggera woman dameeeela is first up in the series.
dameeeela is a DJ and radio presenter based in Meanjin (Brisbane). As a selector, she’s excellently versed in the long history of a variety of music genres, and always has two fingers on the pulse of current music trends.
On the series, Nina Las Vegas elaborated on her time in Australia since lockdowns began. “After I left triple j late 2015, I heavily focused on the international club world. This meant I missed a lot of really cool shit happening at home. One of the most amazing things to have happened because of the pandemic and my return to Australia (full-time) is re-exploring killer DJs and producers here, and oh my, are they good. dameeeela is a star and I’m so honoured to have her kick these mixes off.”
For the NLV Presents mix series, dameeeela’s curated an hour of rave-ready sounds from all corners of the electronic music spectrum. She floats with ease across 90’s rave, burning techno, ballroom and grime, with the track’s defining moments coming at the closing of the mix through an expert combination of Ed Duquemin’s DnB burner “Gurrupurung” and Coco Bryce’s “Ma Bae Be Luv”.
Recorded at home, dameeeela highlighted her new found love of raving at home. “Over the past year I’ve come to really appreciate the home rave. It has the flexibility to be any genre of music, no time constraints of when it happens, the ability to dance as wild as I want in the comfort of my home and pyjamas. I’ve spent the year collecting mass amounts of music of all genres. I simply cannot get bored of it, it’s what excites me and drives me and I consider myself incredibly lucky to get to share that energy with the world!
