For the third instalment of our (almost) monthly night at Rye Wax, we put in action an idea we had from the beginning: an all-female DJ night. And since we had 3 different men on previous rounds, this time we bring you 3 women spinning decks on the same night! All about balance aren't we?
The date is next Wednesday 17th May. The sound curators for the evening will be Nara and Tess, seasoned DJ's playing together - ya know, b2b and all that jazz - and M. from The 808 Show on Reprezent Radio, doing her DJ debut after months of us nagging her to give it a shot.
Juicy Features is a monthly gathering of music curators bringing unpredictable selections of the old and the new. An unpretentious night of nothing but people having fun and playing music they love.
Second instalment of our (tentatively) monthly night at Rye Wax, a venue that always makes everyone feel welcomed.
Juicy Features is a monthly gathering of music curators bringing unpredictable selections of the old and the new. An unpretentious night of nothing but people having fun and playing music they love. We want to mix things up a lot and create opportunity for anyone to get involved and play a set. Starting off with DJ’s but open to solo artists or bands.
For this second round we invited Disagio Nero, one of the people behind Arroyo Records, to expand the sonic boundaries of your Wednesday, and we're keeping Juicy’s own Ema DJ alter-ego RE.ZX on the bill with a more Afrocentric / World music set.
For the 5th issue of our The JUICE Fanzine we want to do better, bigger and maybe even more colourful.
And for that we need your help. The zine is still about music, art, travel, creative projects, open-minded thinking and everything in between, so if you're into any of these things get in touch.
As usual, we'll also have a slight emphasis on a specific subject, which this year is going to be mental health - a sensitive but often overlooked topic that sparks a lot of questions and leaves a lot of space for creativity and better understanding. We want to get up close and personal, as any fanzine should do.
We also would like to hear from people who have never collaborated with a fanzine before. Illustrators, bloggers, writers, photographers, gardeners, cooks...whatever your trade, if you'd like to see something of yours published, give us a shout.
Submissions are open to all. Just send us an email with your idea or use our contact page.
After a super positive Sunday at GRRRL Zine Fair - photos here - we're already gearing up for another fanzine event! Zine World will take place on the 25th of March on the new place run by the girls from OOMK (who also put on the famous DIY Cultures Fair).
We love to put on events and bring friends and collaborators together, while introducing them to a few new faces in the process. After a decent round of successful events last year, it came to us as natural thing to put on a night at one of the venues where we've felt most welcomed. And so Features is born.

For the first installment we want to top up your midweek vibes so we're taking over Rye Wax in Peckham on Wednesday the 1st of February, bringing you Juicy’s own main man
under his DJ alter-ego RE.ZX and a newcomer to the London scene: Makumba.
Here's the FB Event page. Come down, have a drink, bop your head to a tune.
After the dust is settled, MUAY lays four songs over the blue and the nothingness, in a journey to awaken the true sense of self. CE LES TI AL is a trip illuminated by tones from of other places, recorded somewhere between the outside green and the stellar emptiness. Born out of a three day live session inside a country house just before the cold of Winter came to take its toll, MUAY blurs the lines between sound and shape, echo and noise, delivering an ode to the veils of time and all the ephemeral memories they consume. As there is always someone who lays under the air's shadow.
For us here at Juicy, CE LES TI AL is a tribute to a genre we fell in love many years ago but never got a chance to work with. Instrumental post-whatever-you-wanna-call-it, music that understands no borders - sonic or geographic - and carries emotion and a story told in between the cracks in the floor and the noise in the sky.
CE LES TI AL is available in cassette tape (with digital audio download code included), limited edition of 100 (50 red, 50 blue).
MUAY came to life in late 2015 as a duo formed out of a need to go beyond what both parts had already created individually in other projects. A demo was recorded (“PO EI RA”, "DUST" in English) and less than two months after they lapped Portugal from North to South in their tour "Espanha, França, Tudo".
A constant trip between Bangkok and Penafiel, MUAY mix a synthesizer with multiple guitars and worn out drums in a red-black mix of post-something, an Asian inspired meditation cadence with tiger balm fragrance. Their single EP “DA” was released earlier this year as a sample of things to come.
We got a new fanzine ready to come out and, of course, a party to go along with it.
The JUICE #04 is all about connectivity and exploration: joining people together, working out new and old links, tracing those cosmic dots that were always there to begin with and using them to navigate the unbeaten paths of this world. For this issue we shook things up a bit, trying different angles on the main topics we cover and also expressing our values not only through our team but also through the artists and projects we selected to feature and showcase.
Following the success of last year’s event, we get down again with the fine people at Doomed Gallery in Dalston’s Ridley Road Market to celebrate our yearly Fanzine release.
This time around we’re mixing a one day exhibition/launch with a pop-up store concept. We’ll be open 3-9pm, with main event kicking off at 6pm.
The artists and projects featured on the new issue will be showcasing their work, and we’ll be running a stall with all of Juicy’s endeavours: records, comic books, fanzines, limited ed clothing...expect special prices and a few surprises.
It was night of dichotomies. Revelation and mystery, cheerful and gloomy vibes. Roats Miguel brought his brand new EP to life on a perfect setting and we finally showcased the comic books we've been cooking to go alongside his music. We loved to hear all the positive feedback about the releases and the artist performance. Thank you to everyone who came down and became part of the awakening of Roats Miguel. Special thanks to:
Rye Wax, super chilled and helpful venue and staff. Apthy Khea, as always bringing a more humane and soulful touch to the show. Athlete Whippet, smooth and well curated music. Ester Kubisz, the designer of the magnificent shirt Roats now wears on stage.
