JUST HER BIOGRAPHY
JUST FEEL: From electronica, to house, to deep techno, but always with feeling, Just Her is that special kind of artist that holds an innate ability to move your feet and heart in equal measure.
JUST GROW: With one foot firmly in the DJ booth after cutting her teeth spinning vinyl in sweaty back rooms, and the other in her fast developing producer and songwriter career, Just Her has
already carved out an impressive back catalogue on world class labels including Anjunadeep, Crosstown Rebels, Global Underground and Armada, achieving a wealth of Beatport chart positions, an Essential New Tune on Radio 1 and high profile press features in the likes of DJ Mag
& Mixmag. Also establishing herself as an accomplished remixer, Just Her has deconstructed tracks from key players such as Armin Van Buuren and Lane 8, crafting them skillfully into her signature
deep emotive cuts.
JUST COMMIT: A self-confessed multi-tasker, Just Her has not only found the time and skills to study for a Masters Degree in Music, but also to establish her own brand 'Constant Circles' - a unique concept in which music & contemporary visual art are combined, with successful label parties across the UK & Europe and art exhibitions in Brighton and London. Alongside the label she also hosts two successful radio shows, self-syndicated to a number of platforms worldwide,
including the highly regarded stations Frisky & Proton, as well as heading up a successful music & art blog that is rapidly gaining an underground following.
JUST THRIVE: Despite the fallout from the pandemic, the last 18 months could have been Just Her's strongest to date, with a string of solid solo releases including stellar debuts on Circus, Culprit and Renaissance, garnering a wealth of support across the industry, from Eli & Fur, to Sasha to Icarus. With this output came huge gains in traction on the gig circuit, with stand out performances at Warm Up Festival and the 10000 capacity Anjunadeep Open Air at Drumsheds
in London, plus a bucket list moment of handing over the reins to Sasha and Digweed in her home town of Brighton. Never one to rest on her laurels, Just Her has continued this momentum in 2022 with a widely acclaimed four track EP on Anjunadeep and a debut release on fast rising imprint HE.SHE.THEY, soon to be followed by releases on Selador and Nick Warren's Soundgarden. 2022 also came with a spectacular touring schedule of shows across the globe including USA, India, Australia, Mexico, with no signs of slowing.
JUST LOVE: With kindness and compassion at the forefront, Just Her is on a mission to make the industry humble again and the world a happier and more peaceful place via those moments of euphoria on the dance floor, through killer hooks, emotive melodies and strong lyrical messages.
It's what the world needs more of right now. After all, will we ever learn to just love?
ALEXIS CURSHÉ BIOGRAPHY
Alexis Curshé is an Atlanta-based DJ and producer from South Carolina. She found solidarity in Atlanta in 2018, quickly working her way into the dance music scene. Later, she met and formed strong friendships with Atlanta scene stalwarts Ash Lauryn and Vicki Powell, who she calls her "biggest blessings." They introduced Curshé to the city's queer scene, playing Sunday Service and then becoming a resident at Deep South, Atlanta's internationally-recognized queer house music event series and collective. She co-managed the A3C Festival in fall 2019 (in addition to playing it), and found her way onto lineups for events in Chicago, Detroit, L.A., and New York, opening for local queer scene heroes - The Carry Nation.
Immersing herself in underground scenes around the US and the world—and especially Atlanta—Curshé has developed a euphoric, ultra-percussive and sexy sound that ranges from hard drum to techno to soulful house. In addition to working on her first release of original music, Curshé holds down residencies at Deep South's Sunday Service and her very own event series, Saturday Love.
