MC Tali is internationally renowned as one of the most prolific Female MC/Vocalists to emerge from the electronic dance music scene – particularly for her work and groundbreaking achievements within Drum and Bass.
After signing to Roni Size’s ‘Full Cycle’ Imprint back in 2004 and releasing the first ever MC driven album in Drum and Bass, (‘Lyric On My Lip’) Tali went on to work with some of the industries biggest names and has performed in clubs and at festivals all over the globe from Glastonbury in the UK to Ultra in Miami, from Russia to Costa Rica.
She has won three Drum n Bass Awards, graced the cover of DJ Magazine and her recently released ‘Love & Migration’ LP (Fokuz Recordings) is her 7th studio album, and her first Drum n Bass album in over 7 years – featuring collaborations with DRS, Roygreen and Protone, The Vanguard Project, Kasper and Degs among many.
DJ Emma G is one of only a handful of well-respected female DJs hailing from Auckland, New Zealand.
Currently residing in London, and working in fashion by day, Emma has a strong passion for promoting her love of intelligent music through her position as Label Manager for Integral Records.
Upon meeting and discovering a mutual love affair for soulful Drum and Bass with a desire to raise the profile of females on the decks and mic respectively, Emma and Tali came up with the idea to create an exclusive mix and give it out for free.
The Soulside Sessions brand was born, and after the first episode was positively received, the two have gone on to release 9 Soulside Sessions with #10 on the way. Their unique brand of beautifully curated tracks combined with positive uplifting lyrical content, has seen love for these two artists growing steadily around the globe, with three successful European tours (including a performance at the legendary Fabric nightclub in London), and performances together at Northern Bass Festival in New Zealand, and Sun and Bass Festival in Sardinia already under their belt.
