Sig Nu Gris draws on ambience & breakbeat textures in her guest mix
Melbourne-based sound selector SIG NU GRIS has been making a name for herself in the music scene. Her ability to weave a mix of club, experimental and ambient techniques to shape her unique sonic style is what makes her one to watch out for.
Coming off the back of her debut track ‘To Un-Know’, Sig Nu Gris covers all bases of electronic music. This is a pure example of artistry, with her capability to create a blend of dreamy ambient sounds with jungle breakbeat to ultimately compliment an established style.
‘To Un-know’ is full of samples, ASMR vibes and a hauntingly unexpected emotional arrangement. It is a spellbinding and evocative first taste of what is to come for Sig Nu Gris, which leaves listeners wanting more. On the track, she elaborates:
“When making music, part of me tries to create something that will tickle the ears of other people and produce an interesting sonic or emotional experience. The power of every frequency in a song has always been super intense to me, so I’ve always wanted to relay some of those spine-tingling emotional experiences onto other people.”
Now she’s put together a 20-minute mix for Purple Sneakers on FBi Radio, bringing as many varying moods and genres to reconsider traditional dance music. With her diverse knowledge of epic selections, she is able to highlight the efficient yet spacious sounds of Mount Kimbie, the convoluted sounds of Objekt and the tech-house vibes of Special Request.
“All the tracks are tunes I’ve been loving lately, a lot of ambient and breakbeat vibes which you might be able to tell definitely influenced ‘To Un-Know'” she says of the mix.
