Feet rooted in the deepest foundations, eyes fixed firmly on the future and a selection that spans all eras in between; Harriet Jaxxon is one of the most exciting, unique and diverse drum & bass DJs to emerge in recent years.
Firmly established within the vibrant drum & bass network, Harriet has already made enough noise to secure multiple sets on some of the world’s biggest stages including; Reading & Leeds Festival, Glastonbury, Creamfields, Hideout Croatia, Origin Perth and Amnesia Ibiza. With more being added to the list year on year, as well as a long-running residency on Rinse FM, the future is looking more and more promising for this fresh talent.
Like any classically trained DJ story, none of this is out of the blue. Schooled beyond her years, Harriet’s musical knowledge stretches from old school hip-hop, to foundation jungle via classic UK garage. A dedicated DJ convert who ditched a promising career as a professional dancer for a life in beats, this is everything she’s pursued since her first ever drum & bass rave: from handing out flyers and sneaking into venues underage, to studying music technology and being a resident touring DJ for Ministry Of Sound.
These experiences have honed Harriet’s skills, whilst ensuring technical precision and an ability to read any type of crowd; contributing to her rising drum & bass star status. Brought up on Roni Size and DJ Ron records by her jungle connoisseur father, she is a self-described music nerd who’s driven by joining the dots. Most importantly, Harriet guarantees the right tunes at the right time, for the right people.
Harriet is currently deep in studio mode writing new material to follow successful releases on labels such as Drum & Bass Arena and Hospital Records. Alongside new releases and forthcoming remixes, Harriet also designs her own ‘XX’ clothing line, which has quickly become a recognisable and sought-after collection inside and outside of the drum and bass scene.
