MEET THE TEAM
DJ | RADIO HOST | EVENTS
Mimi is an international DJ and radio host based in Brighton. She is a resident presenter on the BBC Asian Network and has played across multiple established clubs, festivals and events across the UK and Mauritius including Dialled In, Daytimers, Forbidden Forest Festival, Brighton Pride Official Street Party and Somerset house, whilst also holding numerous residencies in Brighton’s main clubs and bars including Patterns and Revenge: The South-Easts No.1 LGBTQ+ Club. She founded Pink Islands Collective back in 2020 and co-host’s Bamboo Nights and the Chocolate Box. She has been invited to play amongst the likes of David Rodigan, Nia Archives, Jyoty, Girls Don’t Sync, Route 94, Sherelle, LCY, HorsegiirL and many more.
Never sticking to just one style of mixing and constantly experimenting with genre defying mashups, mixes and self-taught productions she aims to carve out a new space for elements of islander sounds such as (but not limited to) sega, shatta, bhojpuri, bouyon and zouk, infused and blended with other global and UK bass genres. In the process she expresses the fluidity of her identity through genre-less sets and her multifaceted music library.
PRODUCER | GRAPHIC DESIGNER
British-Mauritian music producer and graphic designer Bex Seetanah takes traditional sounds & percussion found across the Indian Ocean, and merges them with her own influences across DnB, Jungle, Triphop & 80s Electronica. Working within the realms of 150-170bpm, the Brighton-based artist has been developing her own authentic sound, weaving intricate drum patterns in and out of complex soundscapes, since early 2020.
Inspired by iconic artists like Calibre, Dub Phizix, Air, Kraftwerk & Mike Oldfield, Bex aims to relax, energise and provoke listeners with enchanting atmospheres, unusual instrumentation from all corners of the globe and largely wordless arrangements.
Alongside immersing herself in the Brighton music scene, Bex is keen to continue mastering her craft, working more collaboratively across multiple upcoming projects, and is in the process of completing her first EP with Mauritius-based creative and music collective, Electrocaine.
DJ | PRODUCER
KMonday acts as an all-encompassing sound exploration project for Croydon born, Mauritian heritage artist Sherwyn Appadu.
Since his 2017 debut EP, “78,” Sherwyn has continued to develop a voice that muses day-to-day observations and reflects upon his past experiences. Inspirations come from the UK dance scene, Jai Paul, Gorillaz, Tame Impala & many other collaborators & peers.
Sherwyn's sonic diary has amassed attention for being an unpredictable, varied catalogue of everything from heavy hitting club tracks to gentle lullaby, liminal space inspired compositions. The album "King Monday (Self Titled)" (September 2022) gained Sherwyn's first plays on BBC Introducing & BBC Radio 1Xtra and a placement in Spotify's New Music Friday UK. A series of remixes for the album is being released this year alongside bandcamp club tools & a new collaborative project.
