This week On A Quest For Legends we are pleased to bring you German DJ duo Just Emma.
Since 2012, Saskia and Alex have built a name for themselves through their prodigious and consistent output of podcasts, original mixes, and frequent tours of Belgium, Poland, Switzerland and Germany. With releases on various European labels like Connaisseur, Katermukke, HanseHertz, and SuddenlyMusic, Just Emma now have a home on UnderYourSkin Records – a label they also own and operate.
Just Emma’s mix for this week’s podcast collabo with Kentaur is a masterclass in minimalism and melody. They blend eery and haunting soundscapes with mellow vocals to create warm and inviting but altogether unfamiliar spaces.
Saskia and Alex show restraint and excellent use of pacing as they oscillate between techy synths and instrumental builds to gently ease the listener into emotional and heart busting drops. It’s foreign and nostalgic at the same time, a skill that’s a testament to their maturity on the decks.
Please enjoy this week’s mix at sunrise if you can.
Witness Just Emma in the mix – brought to you in collabo with Kentaur Podcast Sagas.
