DJ Nèna has put together a small selection of tracks she love’s to play whenever she needs some joy and feminist reassurance. She has written some words to help us navigate her tracks and groovy melodies. Catch DJ Nèna serve upbeat tracks that fill the air with inclusive positivity at the Bad Feminist Party on 7 March at Melkweg, Amsterdam.
This is a massive hymn that I haven’t stopped listening to in the past year. This will be my summer jam for the rest of my life.
Riobamba released this on her own label APOCALIPSIS. This track is angsty and energetic, it screams ‘endurance’. Besides being an incredible artist, she is also an inspiring activist who does so much work for her community.
I’m a fan of Bea Pelea’s sweet romantic reggaeton sound, but ‘Trafikantes’ just oozes BADASSNESS. The gun cock sounds and glass shatter effects might contribute to that. Also, check out the video, because it is one hot Spanish masterpiece.
This banger by Chanty On The Mix is such a slow-burning booty shaker. I love how her voice and flow float on the tense beat towards a moment of release: a stripped-down crisp reggaeton drop. Pure satisfaction. Shout out to Daan a.k.a. angelbabi666 for sending me this track.
Don’t know what to tell about Nicolette and her very rich oeuvre, other than that she’s amazing. This is one of my fav’s.
Bae Bae brought so many vibes to this track. Played this too many times already, but I won’t stop.
Ehua delivers stinging rhythms over and over again. I love how ‘Ruby’ just drags on until the end.
Mina and Lyzza are both insanely good and what they made together here is an instant warm party.
I hope someone in Amsterdam will book DJ Tess soon. Her sound is fresh and bomba. This collaboration with Nan Kolè and MC NyNy makes so much sense to me.
TECH GRL is a true Neo Perreo dream. Her calm way of stating ‘Dale dale duro duro quiero que me des dale duro papi’ on this cute production by RIP TXNY and EL LICENCIADO, makes me wanna dance and flirt around carelessly all night.
