SHE CAN DJ PRESENTS MINX -
MIX COMPILATION RELEASED MARCH 2
AND NATIONAL CLUB TOUR
September 14, 2011 is not a date Minx (aka Rachel Phillips) will forget anytime soon. At a spectacular awards night at Sydney’s exclusive Ivy nightclub, the Sydney-born house DJ was crowned the winner of EMI’s inaugural She Can DJ competition.
Now, Minx reveals her first EMI release on Friday March 2, ‘She Can DJ Presents Minx’ – a massive 78 minute big-room house music mix compilation, featuring many of the biggest dance music names from around the globe, several of who Minx has already played alongside. From Swedish House Mafia to Avicci via Calvin Harris and deadmau5 through to Madeon....Minx leaves no gaps on the dancefloor; showcasing why she’s Australia’s No.1 female house music DJ!
Minx has also been working on two of her own original works and collaborations, ‘Chances’ (Instrumental Version) by Minx and Nordean & Minx Ft. Erik Hecht, ‘You & I’; both of which are included on ‘She Can DJ Presents Minx’ album.
Minx couldn’t be more ecstatic about the release, “To be releasing a compilation that contains some of the best dance music on the planet from many of my favourite artists and to have this mix also include my own original works, is a dream come true”.
To celebrate the release of ‘She Can DJ Presents Minx’, Minx will hit the club circuit for a national tour kicking off on Saturday February 25 at The Weekend, Melbourne playing back to back shows through til mid May. If you’re yet to experience Minx on the decks, now is the time! Current list of shows below, with more to be announced soon….
As a jet-setting DJ of seven years, Onelove’s first female resident DJ and a Quiksilver For Women ambassador, Minx’s hands were already pretty full, but as She Can DJ’s leading lady, life’s hit a whole new level as one of Australia’s most in-demand DJs.
Before the win had even sunk in, she was en route to the dance music Mecca of Ibiza to play the sets of her life at landmark clubs like Pacha, Nassau Beach Club and Café Mambo during the island’s infamous closing week.
Arriving home in 2011, she hit the ground running, playing some of the hottest nights of the social calendar, including EMI’s ARIA Awards after-party, Cleo Magazine’s Swimsuit Party, MTV’s Summer Party and WHO Weekly’s Sexiest People Party, before performing at the Sydney and Adelaide Stereosonic shows.
Minx had played Stereosonic four times before, but never like this. In Sydney, she opened the main arena in ANZ Stadium (officially Australia’s largest dance party), but it was in her previous hometown of Adelaide that delivered the biggest highlight. With several International DJs running late, she was asked to play before Swedish superstar Avicii to a packed main stage. “I don't think I stopped smiling for the rest of the weekend” she gushes.
Come 2012 and there’s no sign of taking her foot off the accelerator. If anything, she’s hitting full throttle. One thing’s obvious, this red-hot star is ready to shine in a whole new light.
Catch her while you can on these dates:
The Weekend, Melbourne
Breath of Life Festival
Mean Fiddler w Tenzin
La La Land
King Street Hotel
Hotel New York
