Gotland, Sweden
July 2015

I first heard about Julia and Anya (known by their DJ name Javybz) through my friend Sam, a neuroscientist and classically trained musician who goes by the name Floating Points. Sam told me how he, Julia, and Anya go on these wonderful road trips together, digging for records all over the country.

“You know they always play the best stuff—you should have them on the show!” he said. “Julia lives in New York, but Anya lives in Russia, and Julia would never do a show without her. They always DJ together.” That sounded a bit complicated, but also very exciting. I loved the thought of doing a collaborative show where one of the people lived on the other side of the world. I decided to ask Julia, and a month or two later they had put together this beautiful mix of songs—after bouncing tracks they would like to play back and forth across the Atlantic.

They decided to call their show the Transatlantic Mix, letting the great Atlantic Ocean that separated the two of them also inspire their selection of music. With myself somewhere in between them on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea, we had to record this month's introduction via Skype. When I listened to this mix for the first time, I loved its diversity and how the origin of each track literally bounced from one place to another. I also wasn’t surprised that I didn’t know any of the tracks myself, given that Julia visits practically every record store in America, while Anya does the same in Europe…

You can enjoy more of their music on Mixcloud or Soundcloud, and their great show on NTS Radio.

I hope that you have had a nice summer and that hope you like this month’s show!

Love,
