Glasgow’s rising techno star is striking out on her own with her first solo release, write Olaf Furniss and Derick Mackinnon

Glasgow-based DJ and producer AISHA has carved out an international reputation on the techno scene thanks to the Animal Farm night she co-hosts at Glasgow’s Sub Club with Quail, with whom she has also released three EPs on legendary label Soma Records.

As a regular at Berlin’s Berghain, a nightspot of such importance that a court officially recognised it as a cultural institution, it should come as no surprise that her first solo release will be on Germany’s Drec Records. The five track EP, which includes remixes by Patrick Dre and JoeFarr, is released on 13 August (on digital platforms and on vinyl) and it includes pummeling beats, rave synths and an infusion of hard trance for good measure.

AISHA recently performed a DJ set on the Hör Berlin YouTube channel, which boasts over 250,000 subscribers, and she takes to the decks in front of a physical audience on 5 September as part of the line-up of Glasgow’s Riverside Festival, alongside acts including Jamie XX, Eclaire Fifi, Disclosure and Amelie Lens.
