Stamp Mix #85: Jenifa Mayanja

Stamp Mix #85: Jenifa Mayanja

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global vinyl chart and 5th in the global soulful house chart.

Raised on the East Coast dance music tradition in the 90s, Jenifa Mayanja is seen as one of the first ladies of deep house. She got her first break as a buyer for Joe Clausell's now-defunct Dance Tracks Records - where she also worked behind the counter with one Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy - and went onto play at Body & Soul (Claussell's party with Francois K and Danny Krivit), helping establish a 25+ year DJ career. Ugandan-born, her African roots remain integral to her musical outlook and, now based in Berlin, continues to be a spokesperson, role model and educator for a new generation. Not just passing on the lessons learned from Claussell, but the experiences gained through running and self-distributing Bu-mako Recordings, Sound Warriors and EDJ Records, co-run with husband Jus-Ed.
