Peach has been steadily developing a reputation in the club music scene for the past few years, but in 2019 she’s on the cusp of big things. We first became aware of the Toronto-raised, London-based DJ through her must-listen radio shows: first, her Snacktime show, and more recently her self-titled slot on NTS Radio. Both illustrate Peach’s taste for colourful, waved-out mutations of house, techno, disco, and electro, as well as her deep knowledge as a selector.
But it’s the club where Peach is most at home. She’s shared line-ups with scene-leading artists like Ben UFO, Karen Gwyer, Objekt, and Midland – the latter of which recognised her talent not just as a selector, but as a producer too, releasing “Silky”, her first ever track, on his new label Intergraded. She quickly followed this up with “Faxing Jupiter”, a floor-filler that appeared on Leon Vynehall’s stunning DJ-Kicks mix.
This year, Peach plans to release her debut solo EP, and will tour in North America, Australia, and India. She’s also part of the Shape artist roster, a European initiative bringing together 48 artists and musicians for a programme of live performances, lectures, and workshops. Still, Peach says that for her, this is just the beginning. “I’m constantly chipping away at my ‘sound’, or ‘musical identity’,” she says. “2019 has been my first year working full-time in music. Previously, I was working 9-5pm at a desk.” With Peach focusing her undivided attention on her craft, we’re excited to see what she does next.
