Hello, hello, hello, we're back with another 60 seconds with feature, where we talk to amazing up and coming talents that should be all over your radar. Today, we had a chat with Emily Nash, discussing everything from performing on a stage that felt like a spaceship to her plans for 2022.
Hello! Could you please introduce yourself?
"Hey! My name's Emily Nash and I’m a 20-year-old DJ & Producer from Kidderminster, Worcestershire!"
Perfect. Now, how would you describe your sound?
"I usually produce dance or tech-house, but I can also produce other genres like drum and bass. My sound can differentiate over my tracks but my favourite go-to sound/instrument is the M1 Organ."

What’s the best gig you ever played?
"The best gig I’ve played has to be Leeds Festival. The stage was incredible and it felt like I was performing in some sort of alien spaceship. Unreal."
And what’s the worst gig you ever played?
"I don’t think there’s been a worst gig. I’ve been lucky so far! But during COVID, I was supposed to play Nozstock Festival which unfortunately got cancelled."
What artist have you been listening to the most recently?
"I have been listening to Nia Archives a lot recently. I just think she’s so talented and the stuff she makes is insane!"
Finally, what are you most looking forward to in 2022?
"I'm looking forward to seeing what comes for me and to just DJ to thousands of people. I have some cool gigs lined up, for example, Printworks which has been on the top of my bucket list! I’m also excited to release loads of fresh music this year."
Earlier this year, Emily released her killer debut track, “Garden”, with Ministry of Sound, which you can listen to below. And with many exciting gigs coming up this year, including a performance at Lancaster’s highly anticipated festival, Highest Point, the only way is up for this young, talented artist. We can’t wait to see what she does yet.
