Phubu, the latest birth in the family of alter egos and allies mothered by Phoebé Guillemot, has kindly treated us with an aural excursion like no other. Based in Montreal, Phubu is the DJ moniker of RAMZi, the artist whose records you may have heard on 12th Isle, Mood Hut, and her own FATi Records.
Reflecting on the mix, Phubu told us ‘this mix is about an introspective start to the year - feeling like being a lil pupa. The pupal stage is found only in some insects that undergo a complete metamorphosis through four life stages: egg, larva, pupa, and imago. Many songs in the mix remind me of my childhood/teenage years. There’s also some music from my friends Daniel Rincon (NAP/Isla label), URA, Jesse Futerman.'
