Kristin Malossi, AKA DJ Voices, has constantly stayed true to her vision of what a dance music DJ should be. A bio places two of her overriding principles – “energy & drama over genre” and “nothing in moderation” – front-and-centre, and it seems the Brooklyn-based DJ, booker and promoter has held them dear since the genesis of this story way back in 2011.
Upping sticks for New York, and in turn discovering the rave, proved something of a revelation for the Florida native. Cutting her teeth as the lead booker for Brooklyn venue Sisters certainly proved a formative experience: free from many of the constraints imposed on venues concerned with things like ticket sales and dancefloor-friendly bookings, it has since paved the way for her to assume the same role at NYC institution Nowadays, not to mention setting her on the path to co-found female-focused DJ collective Working Women.
There are bold claims that she rarely missed a Bunker NY party upon first moving to the Big Apple, and it shows. Just as Eris Drew’s storytelling approach to DJing made quite the impression, witnessing the adventurous approach fostered Bunker founder Bryan Kasenic time and again had a similar effect. Both left and indelible mark on Malossi’s attitude towards music, which pervades everything from her Blue Enough parties to this very mix. DJ Voices keeps things leftfield and intriguing without losing sight of dancefloor utility.
