Gene Tellem’s trajectory has been straight ascent over the last year. If you haven’t already caught her 12″ ‘Mind Reader’ on Wolf Music which landed earlier in the year it’s a must have for lovers of deep hypnotic house music. Gene is now back with a brand new project which see’s her hooking up with fellow producer Gabriel Rei, singer/songwriter Laroie, and drummer Pascal Deaudelin as Secret Witness. The project, which only began in 2020, is a masterclass in deep, sophisticated vocal electronic bliss. Their brand new EP Volume 1 is a seriously classy release.

We also had a quick chat with Gene about the mix
Q1: What can you tell us about the theme of the mix and what are some of the key tracks for you?
I always get into an introspective state when I record a mix at home. Music sounds different when you’re alone in your space – this means I get attracted to specific sounds when it comes to choosing records. This mix represents my own contemplative headspace and using that approach to live a distinctive experience with dance music. ‘Ess O Ess – Take You to a Secret Place (Kuniyuki Soft Remix)’ represents that state of mind… messy and driving rhythms, and slowly building tension.
Q2: How does the style of mix here compare to how you would approach a live DJ set?
It’s all about creating highlights. Through rhythm and melodies, carrying an audience with you via music.
Q3: Which other artists DJ mixes do you find yourself coming back to time and again and do you have a favourite that you gravitate towards?
I always find myself coming back to Wolf Music’s monthly radio show on Balamii. Stu always brilliantly delivers really nice cuts of jazz, hip hop, soul, house…
