KATY B (DJ SET)
Summer Jam, Saturday 22nd July, 18.15 – 19.00, Central Stage, Sefton Park, Liverpool, FREE
Katy B has been through a lot, personally and creatively, in the last couple of years. But as the lyrics to the cheeky, giddy Four Tet / Floating Points collaboration ‘Calm Down’ suggests, she isn’t ready to leave the dancefloor yet. Her new project ‘Honey’, which that track presages, is a love letter to her natural home – the global club underground. And as she wrote to beats submitted by some of the coolest producers in the game selected by her and long time collaborator and Rinse FM founder Geeneus, Honey took on an identity of its own: a super-diverse yet still perfectly coherent 13-track snapshot of the state of the underground in 2016, a series of Honey club nights, and a bold a statement of Katy as a songwriter and performer.
