“Two hours of ambient, techno and jungle.
Just over a year ago, Brianna Price, AKA B.Traits, announced that she was leaving Radio 1 after six years. Her reason? She was squeezed for time, due to a recent surge in DJ bookings, label commitments and production work. Since then, she has segued seamlessly into the latest phase of her career, touring the world as an in-demand techno DJ, as comfortable going back-to-back with Sunil Sharpe as joining Adam Beyer and co. at Drumcode raves. Her only release of 2018, the People’s Nation EP on her IN.TOTO label, was a perfect snapshot of where she was at musically: dark, eerie, subtly euphoric.
This is one of several sounds in the mix on RA.703, a two-hour odyssey through ambient, breakbeat, techno, rave and jungle. (Watch out for the tracks by Baby T, Price’s revived hardcore/jungle alias.) Because she put it together while grieving a tragic death, it throbs with raw emotion. “It includes a bit of everything that I’m feeling right now,” she told Resident Advisor. “Rage, bliss, anger, sadness, laughter, loss.””
