DJ Maggie

DJ Maggie is not out to rattle empty beats.  She’s after a human connection through the universal language of music.  Her soulful sets go deep into the groove of ambient, downtempo and trip-hop, taking her audience along on a spacious, uplifting ride.

The Southern-California native purchased her very first album at age nine.  It was ‘The Wall’ by Pink Floyd. Decades later, she still applies similar discernment to the artists and tracks she hand-selects whether she’s playing a desert dance floor, forest festival, or creating a gentle mix for a yoga class. She clocks light years online scouring for transcendent tunes—firm favorites include the work of Bluetech, Hibernation and Kaya Project.

An early and enthusiastic adopter of the mixed tape, Maggie has always loved sharing good music (and audio odysseys) with her friends.  Through DJing, she’s also captured the ears of conscious partygoers, as well as downtempo and trip-hop music fans all over the globe who find her on Facebook, Soundcloud and other sites.

Initiated to the decks by her beloved Moontribe community in 2005, Maggie has gone on to play events for other cool crews like Green Sector, Tropical and the Do Lab. Ultimately, Maggie dons her headphones in the hope that her playful, positive music offers a moment of meaning, healing or inspiration to those tuning in.

Love you Maggie, just rocked a four hour drive to your mix’s “desert nightcap”and “jam mudra”. One ❤️💚💛

Wonderful 👏

The latest comp from Interchill drops tomorrow...I'm really digging this one. It's definitely on the deeper, mellower side of chill, but it does it oh so well.

My standout favorites are many - from the headnotic slow grooves of Orangenie (The Egg & Az-Ra) and Oregano in E Minor (log(m) & Laraaji), to the slightly somber but raggedly beautiful emotional piece that is Into the Deep (Adham Shaikh), to the enchanting groove of eastern elements in Scorpion Tales (Az-Ra). Also of note are the dusty sonic journey of Ultrafiltration (Organismic), the otherworldly drony soundscape of Elegua (Eat Static), Seb's new spin on Forgiven (Kaya Project remixed by Hibernation), the spacious intricate story of The Heart Is Awake (Re), the flute lines and tribal catchy rhythm of Autonomous Phenomena (Zaibatsu remix of Waveshaper), the always-lovely Krusseldorf with a beloved track Circuit Boarding, a beautiful take on Liquid Bloom's Whispers of Our Ancestors by Erothyme, another gorgeous Asian-flavored tune from Ishq, and finally the spacious, ambient chill of Master Margherita's Night Bird.

Check it out now on Bandcamp, and grab it as of tomorrow.

I'm on a music journey this weekend, to prepare for upcoming sets. Always a pleasure to hear all this gorgeous music being created. While the chilled beats are driving the search for new music, it's often the ambient, beatless realm that captures my attention as well. Here is such a track I stumbled across.

Once again we have dug deep into the amazing debut album from Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society (producers & analog synth fanatics Garry Hughes & Harvey Jones) and handed over their track “Cloudface” to a handpicked group of artist/producers. This time around, Space guitar hero Steve Hillage (Gong, System 7) and musical partner Miquette Giraudy’s Mirror System incarnation, add celestial, glissando guitar and bubbling synth layers to take the track into new Cosmic terrain. On a more serene note, Ambient, Pedal Steel guitar master, Chuck Johnson mines the deeper aspects of the track, while Bombay Dub Orchestra steers the song into a blunted, almost “Trip Hop” direction & DDAS themselves contribute a blissful, slow motion reinterpretation that is almost meditative. This is the last remix EP that will be drawn from the duo’s first album, as the follow-up, full length, second album Wow & Flutter will be coming from Six Degrees later in 2018. credits released March 16, 2018
