Listen to a new Honey Dijon production which uses field recordings from the streets of Berlin

This is Surroundings. 

For our new series with Shure we follow three artists as they create new music from the sounds of their cities. Featuring Flava D in London, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith in Los Angeles and Honey Dijon in Berlin.

We launched the series with Flava D in London, using sounds from Lewisham market, vocals from a busker and sounds of the DLR in a high-impact club-ready banger. Last month, we travelled across the Atlantic to go hiking with Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

This month, we head to Berlin to meet one of the city’s newest residents, Honey Dijon. On a spring afternoon in Neukölln we followed Honey as she captured the sounds and voices of the streets before heading to the studio and building them into a dizzying 4:4 house tune.  

Honey recorded her surroundings using the MV88 microphone and the Shure Plus MOTIV app.

Listen to the full track below and watch how she did it in the video above.

Honey Dijon plays Printworks, London on 13 October and The Warehouse Project, Manchester on 12 October and 15 December.
