8. MAD PROFESSOR
Mad Professor has been making waves and music since way back, working with Lee Scratch Perry, Sly & Robbie, and loads more. True to form, his session is a dubby, experimental, soulful masterpiece.
7. ANNA PRIOR
For our next mix we’re thrilled to welcome Anna Prior! She’s the drummer in globally successful band Metronomy, and she’s a DJ and musician in her own right, releasing and remixing. Anna’s monthly radio show, Beat Palace, on London’s Soho Radio has many devoted listeners. Her house led mix here for Dalston’s showcases her intimate relationship with rhythm. Enjoy!
For the final mix of the initial tranche of the Dalston’s Sessions, we’ve brought in a lynchpin of the East London music scene: Betamax, the rhythmic powerhouse on the drums behind The Comet Is Coming and Soccer96 joins us for a one hour mix. He skirts influences and interests, pulling together a compelling listen.
5. DOOM CANNON
DoomCannon is the solo venture of South East London based pianist and producer, Dominic Canninng aka @doomcannon. He comes incredibly hotly tipped – his first studio single just dropped on @gillespeterson ’s @brownswood – ahead of a full release later this year.
He’s a founding member of @steamdown, and musical director for Brit winning @celeste – he’s someone you should get to know now, ahead of the curve! We’re thrilled to have him do us a mix, so wrap your ears around this one and wish away the end of winter blues.
4. DR LX PATERSON- ELDERFLOWER MIX
Co-founder of and sole constant creative presence in The Orb @theorblive – Dr LX Paterson beams down from his lunar module to deliver a one hour mix for the latest Dalston’s Session.
This ‘Elderflower’ mix from the electronic maestro sees him reaching for samples, mixing in humour, and delivering a set that will have you kicking off the January blues and reaching for your dancing shoes. We’ve been really excited to bring you this one, so wrap your ears around this!

2. HINAKO OMORI
Hinako Omori is a musician, composer and producer based in London, originally from Yokohama, Japan. Inspired by ambient and electronic sounds, Hinako loves working with synthesisers and field recordings in her work. She’s supporting 2020 Mercury Nominee Anna Meredith in November having opened for Erland Cooper the previous month. This mix sees her pulling together some of my favourite J Pop artists’ music that soundtracked her teenage years from 90’s to early 00’s. J Pop Soda Session!
