Breakbeat. Jungle. Dubstep. Rave. Speed Garage. Grime. Left Field Bass. Groups of genres rarely become synonymous with a singular DJ, but in Australia, Mincy is a sharp, fierce representative of heavy, fast and bass focused underground dance music, not only as a DJ, but as a label head, producer and promoter. The Extra Spicy founder, Sydney/Eora based artist has an already flooding resumé that has seen her release on an array of local and international esteemed record labels and traded headphones with some of the industry’s biggest titans.

On the production front, her sonic palette is driven into one subsection of dance music, defined by the feeling of unadulterated, rave euphoria. She’ll be kicking off 2023 with a four track EP titled The Mind Boggles on Shall Not Fade’s sister label Time Is Now, followed by another solo EP on rave-certified Bristol based Hardcore Energy. These are following on from a huge release schedule in 2022 which kicked off with the glitchy Sweet Treat EP on Extra Spicy, followed by a two track vinyl release on London label EC2A, as well a pair of collaborative EP’s with AK SPORTS and Killjoy. Cementing her place as one of the best up and comer producers, her remix of AK SPORTS – Flex was voted by DJ MAG as one of the Top 40 Tunes of 2022.
As her discography grows, Mincy’s becoming one of Australia’s most important tastemakers, renowned as the undisputed Queen of bass-driven music locally, a kingdom and empire that is fostered by community empowerment and representation. Her ferocity behind the decks has taken her to some of the biggest stages on offer, including the iconic London nightclub Fabric, Boomtown Festival, Lost Paradise, Output Festival, as well as an eight date European tour mid 2022. On top of that her 2023 is off to a flying start, having recently completed two New Zealand tours, a Japan tour and run of headline shows across Australia including Lost Sundays and Revolver.
A series of graveyard shifts at pirate London radio station Mode FM inspired her passion and skill to turn to community involvement, launching her record label Extra Spicy not long after returning to Australia. The label has since hosted original music from all Australian artists, and had the honour of hosting the first Australian Keep Hush live streamed party. Recently she has broadcasted to thousands on Triple J, FBi and Rinse FM, with her releases being played across these as well as BBC Radio 1.
With plenty of room left to give back to the world of global underground dance music, Mincy’s is well and truly developing a legacy that deserves to be honoured.
