Producer based in the USA.

Baby Weight, aka Cara Eser, is a DJ, producer, and label boss from Washington, D.C. who has gained notoriety for her “chunky” style of dance music. Her “heart on your sleeve” mentality, genre bending sound, and advocacy for more inclusivity within dance music has earned her the respect of peers like Kevin Knapp, Walker & Royce, Shiba San, Steve Darko, Sacha Robotti, Treasure Fingers, Justin Martin, and LP Giobbi among others. In 2017, Eser founded the label Chub Rub which they use to showcase emerging sounds from under the radar artists across the house music spectrum. Under her direction, Chub Rub has amassed a cult following curated around quirkiness, community, and diversity. In 2019, her debut album ‘Phases’ peaked in multiple Top 10 charts on Beatport and spawned an equally as popular remix album in 2020. In 2020, she publicly came out as transgender citing a need to address her transition as an artist as well as in her personal life. Later that year, their track “Rave Police” reached #1 paving the way to a wider audience. In 2021, Baby Weight was featured in Mixmag as part of their ongoing ‘Impact’ series along with a critically well received guest mix. With a dynamic energy and the future in her sights, Baby Weight is a tech house powerhouse to keep your eye on.

Producer based in Los Angeles, USA.

CRAY, short for Cheney Ray, is not actually an abbreviation for “crazy.” However, the LA-based producer, DJ, artist, and gamer has been effortlessly styling Crocs and cultivating a fan base at a rate that could be defined as such, thanks to her sincere nature, genre-defiant bangers, humorous observations on life and relentless dedication to high-quality snackage since she entered the scene in 2015. After relocating from her hometown of Vancouver to Southern California to pursue warmer weather and a sociology degree at Chapman University, she decided to put her early love for electronic music to work, initially seeking to pursue a career in artist management. Not one to half-ass anything, she dedicated herself to learning to produce music firsthand, to fully understand what being a musician entails. It wasn’t long after she began creating her own sounds that she fell in love with making music, realized “damn…I’m pretty fucking good at this,” and started playing shows under her childhood nickname-turned-stage name, CRAY.

Hannah Holland/Batty Bass

Position: Producer

Producer based in London, UK.

Hannah Holland has played a pivotal role in London’s alternative and queer London club scene since the mid-noughties, arriving on dancefloors sharing electro tinged techno but equally inspired by the influential sounds of DnB and jungle heard at legendary parties such as Metalheadz, which she had frequented in her early teens. The cultural melting pot of London, community, musical exploration and the transcendent potential of dancefloor have always been her biggest inspiration. Having already been “borrowing” (and perhaps never since returning) Kraftwerk, Grace Jones and Talking Heads records from her parents, the influence of this metropolitan musical soup ensured that Holland emerged on the decks with a unique musical character and diverse taste, hallmarks of her sound that she has not lost since, whether undertaking residencies at iconic parties such as Trailer Trash, rocking Glastonbury’s hedonistic and spectacular NYC Downlow, or undertaking far-reaching marathon sets at Berlin’s Panorama Bar. Founded in 2009 as both a record label and party, Batty Bass began Holland’s outlet to explore the disparate strains of electro, acid, techno and house that drive her charismatic DJ sets forward, delivering party-friendly wax cuts from like-minded producers such as Josh Caffe, The Carry Nation, Mama, Lauren Flax and Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s. The imprint also provided Holland with a self-determined platform for her own music, memorably including ‘Paris’ Acid Ball’, an acid-tinged anthem that continues to summon voguing sweat in queer spaces worldwide. Holland scored another anthemic moment in 2017, in collaboration with longtime friend and creative partner Josh Caffe on ‘Fade To Me’, released on Crosstown Rebels, following the ‘Lush EP’ ft. IMMA/MESS, via seminal UK house imprint, Classic Music. Meanwhile, her powerful remixes of DJ Hell, Goldfrapp, The Knife, Planningtorock remain as forward-thinking and exciting as the acts themselves. In 2019, Batty Bass will release a wealth of new material from Holland herself, developed alongside her role writing, producing and playing with the dark-pop band, Black Gold Buffalo, who released their self-titled, long-awaited debut album in 2018. Capturing much of the same rave euphoria and timeless sound in her early work, Holland’s upcoming releases reflect the changes in the landscape of UK dance. Recent appearances have included Fabric for the extravagant Lovechild/Vogue Ball, alongside the notorious London underground parties Savage, Chapter 10 and Adonis. On the fringes of the capital, Holland is a regular at the annual Field Manuevers boutique festival, and across the Atlantic, has guested at the infamous US rave The Carry Nation, alongside her recurring appointments at Panorama Bar in Berlin.

Jay Hill

Position: Producer
Email: soundzlimited@europe.com
Categories: Deep House, Tech-house

Producer based in Philadelphia, USA.

Jay Hill is moving into an exciting new phase of her blossoming artistic career. Based in her studio in Philadelphia, the soulful city’s chilled vibes, down-to-earth attitude and serious musical history, form the perfect backdrop for an artist striving for excellence every day. Fully focused on her creativity, regardless of fluctuating world circumstances, Jay is currently building an impressive, musically diverse catalogue of releases on her newly launched People Of The Light label, centred on presenting music as an art form, unique offerings bound with soul and emotion. From electronica featuring Faithless collaborator Harry Collier; to techno with renowned poet Ursula Rucker; via an exploration of deep tech vibes on her personal anthem ‘Life is a Beautiful Day’ and some light-hearted experimentation with Wolf + Lamb’s Aquarius Heaven, Jay Hill is thriving, her inspiration untethered and flowing freely. Add precisely curated remixes to the equation, from mavericks such as Cevin Fisher and Tiger Stripes, and this new endeavour is perfectly primed to flourish and grow. Notable recent appearances on Hot Creations offshoot Emerald City with ‘I Am Here’ (featuring Lazarusman) and a timeless ‘Mercurial’ for Mr C’s Superfreq have further raised Jay Hill’s global profile. Never one to limit her creativity, two tracks also feature in a new short film titled ‘Exposures’, set for release when film festival season starts back up again. And, when the time comes, Jay Hill’s genre blurring vinyl and digital DJ sets will once again captivate audiences at stylish NYC rooftop bars, on dreamy sun-drenched Balearic Islands and in dark, sweaty Berlin warehouses. For people with open minds, electronic music doesn’t have boundaries, only infinite possibilities, and Jay Hill is a unique artist who breathes life into everything she does with true emotion.
