J. Worra Drops “YOU” Remix EP with Club Sweat and 23by23June 8, 2022
House music up-and-comers DOMii, AKKI, and Tara Bloom head up J. Worra’s fresh remix package for Club Sweat and the 23by23 campaign.
The #23by23 campaign is a call to action for all record labels in electronic music to help boost the percentage of female and LGBTQ+ artists signed to independent dance music imprints to a higher rate of 23% (the percentage currently sits around 2-5%).
Launched in November of 2021 and spearheaded by techno heavyweight Rebekah and Canadian dance music linchpin Sydney Blu, the campaign aims to meet this goal by 2023.
Many labels have signed on so far, including Soma Records, Toolroom Records, Desert Hearts, Hospital Records, REALM Records, Anjunadeep, and more.
In order to discover new, talented female, trans and non-binary producers, 23by23 partnered with Native Instruments to launch a community on their platform Metapop to host remix competitions in collaboration with these labels.
And Australian imprint Club Sweat has revealed the three winning remixes of Los Angeles tech house stalwart J. Worra‘s hit tune “YOU (feat. Cat Connors).” Featuring surefire reworks from Puerto Rican artist DOMii, Brooklyn-based DJ/producer AKKI, and Brisbane’s own Tara Bloom, this remix package is an exquisite example of this worthwhile campaign giving promising talent the attention they deserve. Listen to the remix EP below.
In addition, J.Worra and all three remixers — along with 23by23 director Sydney Blu — have created fresh Beatport Charts to celebrate their release and the arrival of Pride 2022, which you can check out below.
