Let's meet our selectah for this mix, Yorobi:
Yorobi (real name Josje Bijl) is an Amsterdam based dj who started out dj-ing in the 1999 after getting introduced to a pirate radio station (Nautic Radio Groningen) in her home town of Groningen.
What started out as hosting for a pirate radio station and getting well known dj’s to talk about their careers and random party goers to express inner ruminations, turned into her buying some records and to practice dj-ing in the studio of the radio station and at friends who had mk1210’s.
Josje got her own show at the local pirate station and the shows focused strongly on Drum and Bass, Hip Hop & Electro, inviting guests from all over town and occasionally hosting the odd internationally known dj. She debuted as a dj in the basement of Vera (a club in Groningen). After that she played all over the country alongside local and internationally known dj’s , as well as in the UK & in Belgium. In 2006 she relocated to http://jungletrain.net/ , where she’s still broadcasting her bi-weekly live show.
You can catch her live in various bars and clubs around Amsterdam, mainly at OT301, Hill Street Blues, Melkweg, Hunters Grand Café or an illegal rave somewhere outdoors. She can be found more and more around Europe these days. This year she’s played in London for the legendary Rupture night as well as for a night called Deviate in Berlin.
Yorobi’s style is fairly eclectic, ranging from introspective half time to (old skool & future) jungle, footwork & slowfast. Basically anything with heavily syncopated drums, lush pads and heavy bass lines.
2020 sadly saw the cancellations of most of her gigs, but on the positive side also her debut as a producer, with two colabs being released on Parallax Recordings and Disc World alongside Tim Reaper.
