Eris Drew

Friday - The Woods

At the end of 2019, Mixmag voted Eris Drew (along with her frequent B2B partner and fellow Junction 2 artist, Octo Octa) as the number one DJ in the world. It was an accolade for a DJ whose infectious energy breathes new life into house and techno every time she plays. Having spent her DJ apprenticeship learning her craft at some of the USA's most important clubs (including Chicago's Smart Bar and The Bunker in NYC), she's become a recognised master in treating dance music not just as a form of entertainment but as a transformative experience. Her DJ sets, accompanied by wild dancing and unrestrained emotion, are an encyclopaedic trip through ravey breakbeat and ecstatic acid. These are sets which tap into house music's origins and future, the kind of moments when people's lives change for the better.
