Selections: Jessy Lanza
Welcome back to Selections, a series of exclusive artist-curated Spotify playlists from those in the know.
Canadian producer Jessy Lanza is one who’s steadily been reaching new heights over the course of her trajectory, with her releases landing via Hyperdub – her last being 2016’s LP Oh No – and Lanza continuously cropping up as a regular name on the festival circuit. Live, she heads up the stages with her idiosyncratic mix of pop that lies somewhere in between R&B and the leftfield; but the goal to hit the charts is always at the forefront of the artist’s mind.
Ahead of her performance at Morocco’s Oasis Festival this September, Lanza turns in an eclectic playlist of sleek techno, funk and soulful grooves, R&B cuts and a selection of footwork tracks – we see you, DJ Taye – thrown in for good measure.
It’s perfect for those sun-soaked afternoons on the beach warming up for the night’s parties. Hit the play button below and discover the sounds that inform Lanza’s eclectic world for yourself.
Jessy Lanza plays Oasis Festival, Marrakech, 14-16 September
