Mixmag has joined forces with Ballantine's True Music to create an exclusive video series. This six-parter asks three of our favourite DJs to pass on their life-bettering ideas and passions.
Each DJ invited us into their homes whilst off the road to chat through their lockdown experience - impact on their life, their music and how they see the future of the industry. They also get candid about their passions outside musi
First up, from his studio in Australia, Carl Cox chats to us about the success of his Cabin Fever shows and how they have re-kindled his love of vinyl, while letting us into the secret of how many records he really owns...
Coxy will also be teaching you how to make a Shepherd's pie Coxy style. We're looking forward to seeing if the three-deck wizard can multi-task in the kitchen as well as he can behind the turntables. He'll be sharing the recipe for a Coxy whisky cocktail to that goes alongside.
Following Carl, we jump on a call with Honey Dijon, to find out which artists she’d like to see headlining festivals and why diversity should be pushed throughout our industry.
Honey will also talk us through some of the rare books she owns, including divulging her love of Keith Haring; we dive into the page turners that have inspired her attitude and fashion over, not just lockdown, but her life.
Finally, we invite you to the movies with Nastia, who will be talking through the films based on true stories that she’s enjoyed over lockdown. We will get the 411 on why she gave away over half her vinyl in the first lockdown... and how none other than Sven Väth inspired her to do so.
You can watch all six episodes of our True Music series across Mixmag and Ballantine's channels
