Hear No Shade's Kikelomo, Scaarlet, A-Sim & Cabasa Tear It Up On Rinse.FM France

Get Ready For A Warm Berlin Spring With This Laid-Back R&B Mix By No Shade Member Kikelomo

Four hours of experimental-inflected club music from the No Suits and No Shade affiliates.

No Shade have been making waves of late, not least because of their mission to empower female and non-binary DJs at their regular parties in Berlin.

But beyond their activist ambitions, the members of the 16-strong collective are all formidable and creative DJs, defying genre and convention in a way that makes their events easily some of the most musically dynamic in town. (Note Berliners: their next party takes place tonight at Maze, so halt all other plans).

And what better primer to the No Shade musical universe than this epic four-hour mix featuring one of its core members, Kikelomo? The Berlin-via-London DJ (who also hosts her own Cashmere Radio show) lets loose for a No Suits label radio takeover of Rinse.FM France. Joining Kikelomo are No Suits regulars Scaarlet, A-Sim & Cabasa.

And as you can expect from four figures with their own distinct musical personalities, the mix is a wild ride through the margins of experimental club sounds. It’s hard not to think of a sound not covered across the four hour journey—from serene ambience to bone-rattling industrial-tinged hip-hop to liquid breakbeats. Check it out in full above.
