#PHANTASYMIX 43: Jay Carder

There are numerous sides to Jay Carder that demonstrate a DJ, promoter and radio host truly at ease with their own taste. With years at London’s Soho Radio under her belt, as well as leading London’s 4tothefloor collective, co-running the bubbling Erbium Records and Voyage Events, a Birmingham-based club night that focuses on curating unique extended sets and B2Bs, her role as a resident DJ has seen her perform alongside the likes of Shanti Celeste and HAAi x Daniel Avery.

Describing her selections as a “concoction of heavier, leftfield bass and lighter, psychedelic techno”, this is the sort of vibe that Carder delivers for her contribution to Phantasy’s mix series. For this bumping and classy hour, Carder connects her alignment with a resurgent UK underground transforming a legacy of garage and breaks - recent appearances on the decks have placed her alongside K-Lone and the Dr. Banana crew - with a trippy house aesthetic that’s more than familiar to Phantasy, just as Carder is to us. As you can see, she’s even repping the t-shirt.

With no less than three radio shows on the roll and performances completed and scheduled at venues and festivals as diverse as The Social, Fabric, The Cause, Snowbombing, Gottwood and Alfresco, Carder’s thirst for fresh tunes clearly knows no bounds. Premiering on International Women’s Day 2022, enjoy time in the company of one of the most passionate DJs out there right now with our first #PHANTASYMIX of 2022.
