On the Move - Deer Jade
The life of a DJ is rarely one of stillness. Forever in motion across the globe, record bags in hand. For On The Move, we ask our best-loved DJs to stop and pause, asking what they listen to when they’re not picking their set selections.
On 28th May, we're stepping into the world of nomadic and down-tempo techno with some of the top names in the genre. Playing alongside Satori and Be Svendsen, who both present their live shows and club debuts, is Deer Jade – a rising artist whose sonic explorations into the soulful and melodic cosmos of sound, and openness on how travel around the globe has influenced her music, makes her the perfect guest for our next On The Move.
"I sync all my music library to my phone so I can listen to all my tracks on the go, I get super excited before any trip as I will have plenty of time to listen to all my new finds, getting a feeling of all the fresh tracks and be infused with their energy. It makes all these hours of travelling more fun when simply sitting in the taxi or waiting at the airport, yet dancing super hard in my heart having the best time imagining how the track would be on the dance floor.
"I couldn’t live without my sound cancelling headphones, they are my best travel buddy, and they don’t leave my ears from the moment I leave my place/hotel until I arrive at the final destination, except for one or two long silent minutes when going through airport security. If I’m not listening to some of my latest discoveries, I’ll have a set one, exploring what’s just come out or I’ll be listening to ambient music to relax, meditate and clear my mind as I drift off into another realm." – Deer Jade
Otis Redding's 1965 cover of The Rolling Stones' iconic '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction’, a Gerd Janson dub remix of Rheinzand and an ethereal dance floor hit from Kölsch are among her ten selections. Find out what Deer Jade gets down to in her free time.
