Decoded Sundays presents Carly Foxx

This weeks Decoded Sundays mix has been compiled by Carly Foxx, an Australian DJ/Producer currently based in London. Her track ‘Let Me Be Yours’ released on Danse Club Records towards the end of 2015 caused quite a stir and gained big early support from the likes of Nicole Moudaber, Lauhaus, Huxley and David Squillace. We’re big fans of Carly here at Decoded Magazine, and believe she will be in for a busy 2016. Below are a few words from Carly about the special mix she compiled:

“For this Sunday’s Decoded Valentine Mix, I’ve put together a selection of soulful music, old and new, that I’ve been listening to on repeat of late. Most of the lyrics and messages tie into the theme of love although what song isn’t about love really?! Some stand outs for me are Sampa The Great who is an up and coming poet, rapper, singer and songwriter in Australia and Monika (you’ll notice I included two songs of hers) who is an incredibly unique, eclectic and diverse Greek singer/songwriter I discovered online, and basically I think she is the coolest thing since sliced bread!

I love a good edit, so have included Alkalino’s rework of Gloria Ann Taylor (my favourite disco diva of all time), as well as ‘Love Is A Hurting Thing’ which I just got delivered on vinyl. ‘Love Is’ by Tim Deluxe has been one of my favourite songs of the past 12 months. It’s actually the most perfect and tasteful rework of an old Fenton Robinson blues song. I almost always open a bar set with this song and you can almost guarantee at least one person asks me for the name of the song. I hope you enjoy listening to this mix as much as I enjoyed compiling it” – Carly Foxx
