Premiere: Roy Mills – Chinchilla


The London-based Aussie debuts on his own Local Knowledge imprint for a three-track EP.

As the weekend approached, the anticipation of the activities that would soon ensue began to take over. For 48 hours, there would be no mention of work, no thoughts of the daily responsibilities that came with it, only freedom mattered, and they were going to take advantage of every single moment. The club was the destination, a place to escape the outside world. When they descended down those stairs and into the darkness, they knew they’d never want to leave.


Roy Mills launched his Local Knowledge label, as a platform to celebrate community and club culture, towards the end of September 2020 and since then he’s welcomed Hed Ardennes for an EP and a slew of artists for a charity compilation. Now, following appearances on Room II Records, Pressure Dome and Elkka’s femme culture, he takes care of the third release on the imprint with three tracks aimed to be played at different times in the club. From intricate drum patterns and hypnotic bass lines to off kilter percussion and meticulous sound design, the EP demonstrates Roy’s knack for capturing different moods and feelings, whilst saluting the thrill of clubland.
