Womxn In Bass with Ellie Sabine-Singh – Mincy

Posted 17/4/19 in

This weeks #WomxnInBass is Sydney based DJ, Mincy, who slinks between bassline, speed garage, ukg and grime. You might catch her bossing it at Sydney’s favourite bassline and ukg event Extra Spicy, shelling down your fav radio stations or gracing stages all over the world. We managed to catch up with her below, despite the time difference!

The grime scene in Australia is…

Thriving. We easily have some of the Best MC’s in the world here with such a unique sound. Couple of bad boy producers scattered about and some wicked events happening.

The name Mincy came from…

When someone brought some mince pies to a very big afterparty I was at in Brighton in the UK. Don’t really remember how it went form the mince pies being there to everyone calling me Mincy but it stuck

When I wake up I…

Usually I’m feeling pretty good, I sleep like 9 or 10 hours on weeknights to try make up for the lack of sleep on weekends. Make an omelette go to the gym is usually the next steps!

Track I’m currently rinsing is…

Ozwald – Burberry Samba

Quick plug…

I run an event in Sydney called Extra Spicy – all things bassline, UK Funky, UKG and Grime. Come through if anyone is ever in Sydders!

Phrase I seriously over use…

Man i’m not sure hey. I call people clown shoes a lot, probably that haha.

I love what I do because…

It’s fun, I get to meet some sick people, play the tunes I want to hear, go to wicked festivals

It wouldn’t have happened without…

Some very patient friends teaching me to DJ. Big ups my old housemate Elliot who put in some serious hours, and Juzlo for some very last night lessons/sessions at Mode FM together

Biggest struggle in this business is…

Trying not to spend more money partying at the raves I’m playing than what I get paid!

I aspire to be a womxn like…

Don’t think ive ever thought about this, I’m usually pretty happy with how I’m doing for myself. Got a lot of respect for Flava D though

In the rave you will probably catch me…

Front left acting like a clown

I love creating…

Photography, but hopefully going to get my shit together soon and start creating tunes! I’ve been saying this for way too long!

My proudest career moment so far was…

Playing Lost Paradise festival in Australia to the biggest crowd i’ve played too. Also my first set on Rinse FM was a pretty big moment for me

The last Instagram account I followed was…

americangrimerecs – Recently did a Grime Takeover for the Marcus Nasty Show on Rinse Fm where my Sydney crew, an American crew and a Japanese crew all did a set. These were the American crew, it banged.

Most memorable thing that’s happened at a set…

Jheez, there’s been some after party scenes that I probably shouldn’t mention in case my mum reads this (she definitely will). The guy slow dancing with a blow up doll during one of my sets is pretty memorable!

My favourite producer is…

Killjoy, closely followed by Dr Cryptic

In a dream world…

Australia and UK would be closer together. I loved living in UK and try and visit as much as I can now. Would kill for it to be easier to pop over there rather than a 27 hour journey every time
