One of London's favourite up-and-comers, Amaliah delivers the first Capture Mix ahead of her appearance at Waterworks this Saturday.

Amaliah's Waterworks Warm-up

Taking shows at GALA, We Out Here and Eastern Electrics in her stride, Amaliah's next festival appearance comes this weekend at London all-dayer Waterworks on Gunnersbury park.

In her hour-long mix for Pirate, The Rinse resident laid down a flavour of what you might expect to hear in West London on Saturday:

"I was trying to emulate the kind of vibe I would play at Waterworks. There’s a nice build up at the start but then it swiftly gets to the high energy tracks I’ve really been enjoying playing out recently. Towards the end I decided to go for a more euphoric vibe and then end on a more housey tip."

Final release tickets for Waterworks are available through RA.

Why We Record

Between transitions Amaliah discusses the importance of recording, both to stay familiar with your track library and analyse techniques:

"I like to listen back to my mixes quite regularly. It’s a good way to refresh your memory on what music you have, plus I like to listen and see how I can tighten up mixes or the way I construct a set."


Collecting sounds from inside the global network of Pirate's studios, the Capture Mix Series is recorded entirely using CAPTURE.AUDIO — Pirate’s new in-studio tech allowing DJs to record high-quality audio straight from the mixer with just a mobile phone — no apps, no cables, no fuss.

CAPTURE.AUDIO is currently available in Bristol, London (Hackney, Tottenham, Dalston, Earlsfield, Croydon), Glasgow and Leeds DJ studios with a roll-out across all of Pirate’s UK, US & Germany studios coming before the end of 2022.
