DJ Minx continues Planet E’s 30th anniversary celebrations with new EP
As part of Planet E’s 30th anniversary celebrations, Detroit icon DJ Minx is releasing a new EP ‘Do It All Night’ which comes complete with remixes from Honey Dijon and label boss Carl Craig.
Set for release on 28th January, the EP is a dose of jacking Detroit house, boasting stripped back drum patterns and soaring synth-lines, chock full of energy. Honey’s re-rub, which is streaming now, amps up the levels while Carl adds his signature touch with a subtle edit focused on arrangement.
This marks another showcase of Detroit musical innovation that Planet E have strived to platform since their inception. The label have continued to push the boundaries of genres, most recently with releases from Carl and Moritz Von Oswald, DJ Holographic and the first electronic music album from Mexican-American percussionist Francisco Mora-Catlett.
A key player in Detroit’s rich musical history, DJ Minx cut her teeth as a DJ in the 80s, holding a residency at Motor Club and hosting long-running radio shows for WGPR and CJAM. As well as being a regular at the city’s Movement Festival, Minx is a fierce advocate for Black female artists, championed through her Women on Wax collective and label. Last year’s EP ‘Blind Amerikkka’, released on He.She.They, was a significant moment for Minx, as this was a springboard for her to come out publicly during Pride.
