It is of high importance to us at SINE to carefully handpick the artists that play our events, and Natasha ‘Sweetpea’ is no exception to this rule. Over her many years in the game, she has made a name for herself primarily through her DJ abilities. She has continually smashed out energetic sets on an array of radio slots and impressive live shows, playing alongside some of the biggest names in the scene.
Only within the last couple of years has Sweetpea begun to release music of her own, after years of perfecting the art of production and finding her own style. With her first official release being the murky collaboration with PRTCL entitled ‘Afterthought’ in 2016, her production has continued to both develop in quality, as well as settle further into a sound of her own. As well as this release on Terabyte Recordings, she has since released on highly respected labels such as Addictive Behaviour, Dispatch and Med School. Never sticking to one specific style, her music ranges from dub-influenced halftime, to unruly amen smashers, to straight up drum and bass rollers.
Her latest mix for Drum&BassArena is a special one, in that every song in the mix is a track from artists playing the SINE warehouse rave on the 9th of November – whether a remix, collaboration, or their own single. The diversity of this mix reflects that of the line-up itself, containing everything from early 90’s classics to a selection of unreleased Sweetpea productions. Inside you can find tracks from Kolectiv, T>I, Data 3, Ill Truth, Amoss, LTJ Bukem and many more.
This cleverly constructed mix is not only a pleasure to listen to, but provides a glimpse of what can be expected from the vibe on the night.
