Holly Lester (Duality Trax)

2020-06-12

It's been a while between guests on Passing Notes but this week joining me virtually, all the way from Belfast is Duality Trax's Holly Lester! I reached out to Holly in February, desperately seeking a pre-release copy of Fio Fa’s ‘Rescue Squad’ - the debut release on Holly’s brand new label Duality Trax. Preparing for anything other than weekly radio seems a distant memory, but I still remember the urgency in which I wanted to get my hands on the release. Many of these types of emails understandably result in no reply, but a couple of weeks later not only did I receive a copy of a release but a very cute suggestion that we should do a mix for each other’s respective radio shows. There is definitely something to be said about the global community that electronic music fosters. Holly is a resident broadcaster on Manchester’s Limbo Radio, is an established and enviable selector and has an undoubtedly exciting future ahead for her newly established label and imminently to-be-released original productions. Having Dj’d since 14, Holly notes in a previous interview that the initial thing that got her really obsessed with dance music was trance, something which I’m sure will shine through in her curation of the label. Here, she presents an exciting mix touching on all things house, breaks and rave - a perfect energy to get your weekend started! Broadcast live on PBS Melbourne for episode 67 of Passing Notes.
