Best of Xpressed Records 2020 (Compiled & Mixed by Desiree)


In just a short space of time, Desiree has catapulted from obscurity to become one of the most promising house
music DJs in South Africa. Her style of play evokes an Afrocentric mood whilst maintaining unshakable loyalty to
techno basics and beautifully crafted melodies.

Electronic music has been a staple in Desiree's life for as long as she can remember. Her childhood was filled with
sounds from the likes of Thom Yorke, Atoms for Peace, Gui Borrato and Jon Hopkins which have been of high
influence to her sound.

Her eclectic song selection and mixing style has earned her a spot on prestigious line ups including a residency at
Punk Mbedzi's Afro house Party 'The Rhythm', Music People's 'Grand Moon' party in Cape Town, Themba and
Black Coffee's 'Deep in the City' series, Kamayakoi's Beach rave in the Ivory Coast and many others. She has also
delivered a host of exceptional mixtapes for a variety of international podcasts and radio stations including Rise
(Berlin), Skiddle (UK), Kenya Nights and BoomRoom Kazakhstan.

2019 saw her being selected for the prestigious Rackless Kazi Dj residency in Zambia in partnership with the
Southern African British Council and Modzi Arts. Subsequent to this, she was shortlisted as a top 10 semi-finalist
amongst a cohort of over 500 DJs for the Ultra South Africa Music Festival King of The Decks competition.
Desiree is a powerful force to be reckoned with an undeniable passion for electronic music.
