Hannah Wants has dropped a new mix tape entitled ‘Roots 2’, the second in her new series, showcasing some of her favourite tracks over recent years.
Hannah gives some insight on to why she began the series: “I started the Roots mixtape series because I wanted to showcase some of my favourite tracks from when I first began Dj’ing. I wanted to be able to show people where my love for music started and where for me, it all began.”
This particular edition principally focuses on Old Skool UKG and 4x4 bassline. A child of the garage generation, Hannah explains why this sound was the predominant focus, “When I first started buying vinyl’s and learning to DJ I fell in love with UKG, 4x4, Speed Garage, Bassline House and Funky House – a music genre/ scene that dominated Birmingham, my hometown, at the time.”
Hannah Wants has validated herself as a world renowned DJ with some serious credentials. In 2014 alone Hannah picked up the Best Breakthrough DJ title at the DJ Mag awards and became Mixmag’s Best Breakthrough DJ and Star Of The Year. Championing music that is true to herself Wants has constituted herself as one of the biggest names in dance music with her Radio 1 residency and seamless releases.
