With an output spanning the realms of classic hip-hop, stripped back broken beat and sparse elements of leftfield house and ambient techno; Willow has developed a sound that’s unusually distinctive, yet hard to define.
Willow’s introduction came in 2014 when veteran DJ Move D included her first production ‘Feel Me’ in his Fabric 74 mix. Having pricked ears when he played the track out for the first time, Move D passed ‘Feel Me’ on to his friend Lowtec – who decided to give it a full release in a compilation on his Workshop imprint the following year.
The sub-heavy house tune with an earworm R&B vocal was a highlight on the LP, and then became No.6 in Resident Advisor’s tracks of 2015. Willow made her return to Workshop in 2016 with a full EP; bringing together warm, twisting melodies with delicate vocal flecks and heavy low-end stabs over lingering dimensions of beat-less bars.
She joins us as part of inner city electronic's takeover on Nebula on Sunday night.
